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


I researched all similar SUV's- CR-V, RAV4, Forester, Santa Fe, and this is by far the best. The closest SUV to the Outlander is the Subaru Forester, but it is nowhere near as sporty, and has only a 4-speed transmission! I traded my Mercedes C240 and could not be happier. I am getting 26.3 mpg driving to work (mainly highway)- more than I got with my small Benz! The CR-V is too econobox, the RAV4 has no nav nor shiftronic transmission, the Forester is too soccer mom/housewife. Both the CR-V and RAV4 A/C is poor- can't cope with our heat! Reliability of Mitsu is outstanding for this model, could not be happier. As with my four prior Mitsubishis, your value for what you pay is incredible

Best Features

Fuel economy, interior room, 3rd seat, six-speed paddle shifters, awesome Fosgate stereo, A/C is ice cold, fit and finish seem great.

Worst Features

Sun visors need to be lighted and not so cheap appearing, needs rain-sensing wipers, needs automatic-on-off headlights, NAV should be 3-D instead of 2-D.
