Bad Paint on Mitsubishi Outlander!
By kathy on


2008 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


I have had this car for 2 years and can accurately review it now. I have several complaints. 1-The paint and body quality is terrible.It looks like I've been in a hail storm from the side. I have had cars for 6 years that didn't have as many dings and marks as this car does. It's a mess. 2-I have found there to be large blind spots on the bottom front windshield corners. I have, on many occasions, just missed pedestrians or cars coming from the opposite corner. The corner joining metal and the rear view mirrors create too large of a blind spot. 3-The interior being black on the red model. The other choice was light cream (on and SUV?). It is the hottest car I have ever been in.4-Gas mileage

Best Features

Radio controls on steering wheel. 6 cyl. had good pick-up. Fold down tailgate.

Worst Features

Paint & body quality poor. Location of many things on interior, like gas cap release and mp3 port. Two choices for interior - cream and black. Cream demo was already very dirty so chose black - mistake - WAY too hot. Blind spot at front windshield corners by R- view mirrors. MPG disappointing. pricey
