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


My wife has 07 LS 4wd. She likes it and I drive it once in a while so when time to replace my vehicle took a look at 08 leftover. The fun thing about this car is you have to drive it. It doesn't lull you to sleep and since I drive a lot I need to be awake. Gas mileage varies and so far best is 25 mpg in 2wd then 24 in 4wd. My XLS drives fine especially in the messy snow, wet and ice we've had this winter in NJ.

Best Features

The 220 hp and 204 lb of torque move this thing very nicely. Comfortable on long trips, looks like it cost more, features both standard and optional let priced fairly. Key fob, sound system, rear leg room for back seat occupants, xenon and heater/ac controls simple.

Worst Features

To make it a great SUV, telescopic wheel, illuminate door controls, thicker carpet, more sound deadening materials, doors, floors, engine bay. Flimsy sun visors, illuminate sun visors, day/night mirror a must, remote hatch release on key fob, move heated seat switch. Now it would be best in class.
