Better than expected
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport ES had gotten some poor reviews from professionals. Had I read those poor reviews beforehand I wouldn't have bought this vehicle, but so far I'm glad I did. I've had it 2 weeks, but I'm impressed with it. Steering is much better and tighter than reviewers claimed. Quick turn radius. Front seats could use some more support for us with longer legs. The very tall headrests are unnecessary and blocks view looking back but i guess are more for neck protection in an accident. It is a small engine, but since i don't haul any cargo or any other people around often it is fine for me. My daily commute is either 40 mph speed limit or 55 mph on the expressway, so who needs more power than that? not me. The ride at those speeds is good and smooth. Braking is quite good and responsive, as I've found out already. The CVT does take a little bit of time to get used to, as it's much different than my old Oldsmobile transmission, but nothing here to complain about. I LOVE the standard 18" tires on good looking alloy wheels. No cheap plastic rim covers. The stereo interface is a rather plain and lame looking (but perfectly functional), but the USB port and bluetooth works great for my MP3 player. Standard armrest is cool (wish it was a bit larger). Comes with 4 floor mats, which some SUVs charge extra for. The big plus for me is the super warranty. 10 years on powertrain, 5 years roadside assistance, and 7 YEARS FOR RUST!!! Rust warranty is important for me since I live in Chicago and don't have any indoor parking. My previous car completely rusted out at the bottom. So don't let the negative reviews bother you. They should review a vehicle for what it is, not for what it isn't. So far I think I made a good decision to buy this vehicle. But as always, time will tell. I paid $18,563 after taxes, title, fees and rebates applied.
Glad I purchased it
I bought a 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport brand new for 16,990.00 . I researched the hell out of it but never test drive one. Edmunds gave it poor reviews but I noticed owners have it great reviews. I test drive toyota rav4 and the new chr and then the outlander sport. I felt the outlander was way better than the toyota and the price was even better. It accelerates just fine for the small engine and the transmission seems great too. Ya it's not a Mercedes or BMW but that was not the prissy kind of vehicle I wanted. I wanted a vehicle to drive. I am not a snow flake and know how to use mirrors to back up. I have a smart phone for navigation and those items were judt an added expense on other vehicles. Bottom line us I am honestly impressed with the handling acceleration and the look . I could afford a BMW or Mercedes but am comfortable in who I am that I don't need a sub like that, the outlander is perfect for me and how i use it. 02/25/18. Still glad I bought this ride. The drive feature let's me choose front wheel drive, all wheel, or 4 wheel drive perfect for MN Winters. I was surprised on the stock tires it came with but do think an upgrade will be better. Put another 4 k miles on. Really line this vehicle
Underappreciated little SUV
Mitsubishis are vastly underappreciated. They are usually LOADED with features, and they are animals in the snow. I drove a 2004 Galant until it just gave out, and we bought this Outlander Sport. I adore this car. There are really amazing features, like heated seats, that are available in trims below the GT. The panoramic roof is bada**, and it rides and handles curves amazingly. Plus with rain sensing wipers, the FAST key system, it has everything and more. Bonus, because they're so unappreciated, they're also underpriced. **UPDATE** I have been driving this car for close to 7 months now. I still love this little SUV. My husband and I have hauled a ton of stuff, and the 60/40 seat split is super helpful. All in all, a wonderful car!
