2009 Mitsubishi Outlander ES 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
This is my first SUV. I needed more cargo space than my sedan could offer. I test drove the vue, equinox, escape, journey, nitro before looking at the outlander. This offered everything I was looking for and really enjoy driving it. I like the steering wheel radio controls, the in-floor storage (I don't have the 3rd row seat). I like all the safety and stability features. The 4 cyl is good, but because I have a lead foot could use a little more get up and go. I have to still get used to speedometer on left side of the display. Offers great warranty. Gets good gas mileage for an SUV. Great safety ratings. Not sure why you don't see more of them on the road. This is a great SUV especially for the $$.
Fold flat tail gate. 2nd row seats have great leg room. 3 glove boxes, great sound system. Lots of cargo space, cup holders that hold 20oz bottles, stabilizer bar, stereo controls on steering wheel, has a nice exterior look. Good gas mileage, good safety ratings, great price.
