2014 Mitsubishi Outlander SE 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
When you compare any vehicle priced under $25k that comes with 5/60 bumper to bumper warranty, 10/100k power train warranty, comes with back up camera, heated seats, bluetooth, roominess and 26 mpg combined, there aren't many that can compare. With the 2014 Outlander SE, you get all this and reliability of Mitsubishi. Yes, it's not a sports car. Yes, it doesn't have cutting edge design. Unlike other vehicles in its class, it's very quiet, is comfortable, handles reasonably well, and has all the safety features you'd expect for lots more. We researched lots of vehicles for what we needed and couldn't come up with a better solution for the money.
Roomy, fuel efficient, lots of technology
Make engine quieter on acceleration. Stiffer and thicker seat backs on third row.
