So Far So Good

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


Took a long look at many small SUV's. Honda CRV too sluggish, Forrester (used to own one) lacked wow factor, RAV4 V6 4WD was solid but cost $2000+ more with less features. Worried about American made being around much longer. Wanted to stay under $30k fully loaded. Walked out at $27,255 with 0% financing for 60 months (rather than another $2000 off) - approx. $1,500 below invoice. Sticker on car was over $31,000 MSRP. Fun to drive, looks good, great sound system, Fast key awesome - hope to have for a long time.

Best Features

Fast Key - Sound system with hard drive rocks - navigation system above average - looks & sounds good

Worst Features

A bit sluggish off the line for a V6 (better than V4's tested but not as strong as RAV4 V6 (good middle power though). Definitely more road noise than my old Honda Pilot - but different class of ride. Could use lighted instruments on doors for locks etc. Dumb placement of heated seat switches.
