2008 Mitsubishi Outlander SE 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


I considered all the other compact SUVs out there including the RAV4 and CR-V before choosing the Outlander. The Outlander definitely has the others beat on price, styling and overall utility. Plus it’s a great value and costs thousands less than a comparably equipped RAV4 or CR-V. The 4 cylinder is plenty of power for me and I can use the paddle shifters to quickly downshift if I need to. The handling is very good with excellent cornering. It’s nice to drive a good looking car that you don’t see on the road often – I get plenty of admiring looks from people.

Best Features

The Rockford Fosgate sound system sounds wonderful – I was worried it would not be refined but it is. Other favorite features include: the dual-opening rear hatch, the AC outlet in the armrest, the 18 inch wheels, the power moonroof, the leather-trimmed seats.

Worst Features

The interior build quality and materials could be improved but it’s not a huge deal – it all still looks great especially in all black. I would love to see a hybrid version.
