2018 Mitsubishi Outlander GT 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I have had this SUV for about 6 months. It is a good performance vehicle, however one thing really bad is its gas range. On regular street driving conditions you get 220 miles per tank, which means you are looking for your next gas station just after about 100 miles of filling up. On long drives it gives little better but no where close to other SUVs in this class. If you plan to drive a lot or would like to take long trips THIS IS NOT YOUR SUV. Also the workmanship and interior design was done by someone who will never drive this car. Extremely limited storage space and badly designed space utilization. Mitsubishi missed the mark on this one.

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander SEL 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


Review

Like the heading, beware of so called expert reviewers who for some reason bash this car. The truth is this car is an underappreciated gem. I returned my leases car a year ago and a new job got me looking at new cars. I'm not into luxury cars so looked at Subaru Outback and the Outlander. The Subaru drove better but in terms of value for money the Outlander blew all competition out of the water. I really love this car, bought the highest trim for 25k and as of today cant say anything wrong with it. It drives smoothly, very intuitive entertainment system, handles the road well. It is true that the acceleration isnt all that great,but I'm not going to race anytime soon. The car I got has power liftgate, blind spot monitor and rear sensor all included. Unlike the other Japanese cars dont forget this one is 100% made in Japan so the workmanship is definitely good. So far no regrets. BTW im getting 27 miles to the gallon in the city!

Review

After comparing every crossover & SUV with a 3rd row seat on everything from gas mileage to oil change cost, tire size and replacement cost, included options & more - the Outlander came out ahead. Our 1st was a 2014 SE with touring package (leather, sunroof & Rockford Fosgate audio). Drove that vehicle 55k miles in 2 years and only had to the the a/c compressor replaced. Was relaxed under warranty & was in & out of the dealership service department in a couple hours. Traded that one in on a 2016 SEL with touring pkg, leather, Rockford Fosgate audio, & appearance package (18” wheels, “ground effects” & LED fog lights). Also added the roof rack cross rails & tow package (purchase from the dealer). Have driven this vehicle 45,000 mi since Dec 2016 & not a single issue. Just replaced the tires & the only maintenance has been regular oil changes (dealer provides a $39.99 coupon for full synthetic) & air filter changes. The only 2 complaints I have about this vehicle is 1. No rear climate controls & you need to crank up the climate control fan to get almost anything out. 2. They appear to have changed something with the seats between the ‘14 & ‘16 model years because the ‘14’s seats were significantly more comfortable. The cargo space with the 3rd row up is not great, but that is why I added the roof rails & tow package. If they add rear climate controls or even rear vents & would probably continue to trade up to another Outlander in the future.

Review

Third row is tight. Only good for small children. Lots of room when third row is down. Car seems well built. Solid chassis, no rattles. quiet cabin. Car may seem dated in design, which isn't a bad thing because it has given Mitsubishi time to fix any issues. Like the fact that the car is fully assembled in Japan and almost all parts are sourced there as well.
