2011 Mitsubishi Outlander ES 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
We bought this Outlander new in late 2011 to replace a Saturn Wagon that was burning oil (and that we were outgrowing).
Right now we have around 23,000 miles on the car.
It starts and runs well.
Since we are used to small engine cars this has enough power for our needs.
The trunk is huge, and the radio sounds great.
Seats are comfortable.
Handling is superb.
We get around 23 mpg overall in winter and 25-26 mpg in summer (suburban driving).
Highway mpg is 28-30 mpg.
The CVT is a bit growly and low speeds and RPM, but once the car is moving it is fine.
Handling, radio (even the base model), power, comfort.
We have had no problems with the paint.
Temperature and tire pressure warnings are a nice feature, though the former can be annoying after awhile.
Visibility is pretty good.
This thing gives an annoying electric shock, especially in winter.
It would be nice to have a lighter colored interior.
Stop closing the dealerships near us.
Offer a diesel.
