A great value purchase
By Vik on
2010 Mitsubishi Outlander SE 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
We bought this to replace a 3-series BMW sedan. With a growing, athletic son and two large dogs, we needed to return to having an SUV for toting everyone around. Having previously owned both a Pathfinder and a Highlander, we were familiar with the virtues/vices of both truck- and car- based SUVs. We researched the Outlander thoroughly, and this model is recommended by both Edmunds and Consumer Reports. In fact, this model gets the nod over the 6 cyl, and we agree with that assessment. It is truly a great value purchase: fun to drive, very good technology, comfortable, and highly useful. The vehicle is thoughtfully designed. Yes, they could have used nicer interrior materials.
Technology: CVT is smooth as silk. Sound system is better than my BMW's was. Lots of storage and user- friendly features: foldable back seat, multiple cup holders and plugs, easy to use spare, great digital display.
User nicer materials in the front interior. Adjust the transmission to allow for a bit better pickup. Acceleration from 40 to 60, or 60 to 70 to pass is great, but the car is a little slow to get going. Once you adjust to this, all is well.
