2012 Mitsubishi Outlander SE 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
I bought this Outlander SE AWD as a 2012 leftover.
The price was $21,300, a great price for a SUV with AWD, bluetooth, and lots of nice features.
Absolutely nothing has gone wrong or missed a beat in the first 15,000 miles.
It has been fun to drive, reliable and relatively economical.
Fold-down rear tailgate, decent fuel economy (around 24 mpg in hilly country), very comfortable seats and driving position, excellent and sporty handling, great visibility and sharp looks.
It drives like a much larger vehicle in its ride, but handles like a nimble car.
A little more horsepower would be nice, though not absolutely needed.
