2004 Mitsubishi Outlander LS Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I bought this car one year old with 12,000 miles, and it has served me well. Aside from a cooling fan that runs for a short period after the engine is turned off (I ignored the recall), I've had no problems. It's comfortable, zippy, handles well, and the cargo space with the back seats down is plenty long. Wish it were a little higher, though. I had considered a 2004 Ford Escape (too pricey) and a 2004 Honda CRV (not long enough). I'm happy with my pick. My only complaints are that the sheet metal is thin (dings easily), the in- town mileage isn't great (I get about 17 mpg on a 4-cylinder engine!), and wind pulses through the car when the back windows are down.

Best Features

Trouble-free engine and transmission, great highway mileage, and I like the unusual styling of the front end.

Worst Features

Needs tougher body sheet metal and better in-town fuel economy.
