2009 Mitsubishi Outlander SE 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


Review

After searching high and low for a family car, I came across the Outlander. I was tipped off by being the chosen brand for the Paris/Dakar endurance race as the support vehicles being that they were champs 10y in a row. That said, I wanted something that you don't see passing by you 50 times a day on the road. Its a pretty unique SUV. This is my first SUV but I'm familiar with the Jeeps and Murano. So far I am very please with it, I got the lower end 4C engine for better gas economy. Still had all the power I need on and off the road. The paddle shifts work great when you need to downshift and take off! Snow, rain, sand and mud. No Problem! Great features and fuel economy at good price tag!


Best Features

-All the compartments. -Multimedia System Navigation (although could get an update!!) -Rear hatch flat door -Sound system! -CVT Transmission FWD AWD and 4X4 are great options! -Paddle shifts -Keyless entry and door locks -AC 400W plug very useful when camping or at the beach!


Worst Features

-Update the MMCS, I would really like to see a new interface! -The Paint should be more resistant. -The rear 3rd passenger seat should have been better planned.

2009 Mitsubishi Outlander ES 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


Review

The car was fine; the company is quite slimy. They did not respond to complaint letters. Then they tried to bill me thousands in phony repairs. They also tried to charge a late fee. The car was returned late because the person they asked me to contact was on vacation for two weeks. Then he turned out to be a slaesman from Mitsubishi trying to sell me a new car. What a mess!

2009 Mitsubishi Outlander SE 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


Review

Overall, the Outlander is great. Awesome sound system (stock), but the doors don't automatically lock, and I have taken it in 3x in a year for warranty repairs: molding on kick plate came off, A/C adapter stopped working, and excess glue on the windshield which was causing all the wiring to be exposed. My Honda's never had problems like this. It gets time consuming and my time is worth something. Paddle shifters are useless- no one really uses them in a 4 cylinder SUV. I have to yell at the bluetooth speaker to be heard.


Best Features

Sound system. Nice design.


Worst Features

Automatically locking doors, ditch paddle shifters.

2009 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Our XLS AWD is Rally Red, and aptly named Ladybug! Wasn't so sure about leaping for a SUV, having driven cars for nearly 30 years, but the Outlander is very responsive and easy to drive. Not so sure about reliability yet, but after 20 years of sturdy Mitsus, I'm not terribly worried. Only concern would be mpg, but the trade-offs - comfort, utility, safety - seem to make it all worthwhile.


Best Features

Heated leather seats! Spunky 6-cylinder & decently mated 6-speed. Visibility is quite good, and never realized how much I'd like a rear windshield wiper. Interior lighting is decent, and exterior lighting is terrific. Didn't care for FASTkey at first, but now I want all doors to open automatically!


Worst Features

Only quirk so far is the tight space around the seats, which makes adjustments and seatbelts tricky.

2009 Mitsubishi Outlander SE 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


Review

This is likely the best vehicle I have ever owned. As some say the low end acceleration is not great, but it is fine. The Outlander has a real quality feel and is fun to drive. I tried the Honda CRV, Mazda CX7, Toyota RAV4, Nissan Murano, Kia and Hyundai and this was simply the best. And the price is better than all of these. I absolutely recommend this vehicle to anyone, other than the Navigation System unless you use it in an area where no new streets are put in.


Best Features

The music server is a great feature along with the two piece rear liftgate. Great warranty.


Worst Features

The navigation unit works great and is one of the best I have seen, however the maps are so out of date as to make it useful in Tampa where new roads go in all the time. Bought in Nov. 2009 and came with 2007 maps. New maps just became available but the are from 2008. My $150 Tom Tom is much better.
