Great Downsize Vehicle
By cakegirl1000 on
2011 Mitsubishi Outlander GT 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
We are very, very happy with this vehicle having gone from a Cadilac Escalade to the Mitsubishi Outlander. We made many day trips to shop and drive every crossover including a few others both larger and smaller such as the Juke and the Explorer making sure to give everyone a chance. We almost walked away because we were not thrilled with the White or the Black color options until I spotted one on the showroom floor that had been ordered but not purchased last minute. It was in this esspresso color with cream leather interior. It had great upgrades as well and we fell in love.
Love having the 3rd seat in back for seating of 7 total. Even though this is only a jump seat and not truley comfortable, it's fine for kids on local runs and it folds down flat giving you tons of extra room. Of course the sunroof option is fun as well as the modern dasboard. I also like the option to sinc multiple phones so you can take calls through the speaker system leaving you hands free as well as your Ipod so everyone has thier music available to them on long trips.
1) Adding a glare guard over the screen where the Navigation is would be great. This is a big problem on a regular basis and could probably be an easy fix.
2) The Jump seat would be better with at least some padding on the seat protion. There is only a piece of fabric over the frame right now and we're paying to have someone add it in a few weeks.
3) The drivers side drink holder next to the door is rediculouse. Both my husband and I have hit the bottom of it with our knees causing coffee to burst and fly everywhere. We no longer us it at all. Other then those mnor things we love the car and are very happy with our purchase. I hope they can make these simple improvements for the future.
