2015 Mitsubishi Outlander SE 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
*Revised August 2021*
We still have this thing and have had no problems to speak of. It was bought new and all we've done is basic maintenance, tires, battery, etc. It still feels tight and solid, at 60k+ miles now and none of the squeaks and rattles are present that you'd expect in a "budget" car. I can't stress enough how much of a disservice the "automotive journalist" set have done … to Mitsubishi... This is the car most people would say they want but they buy something else instead. That said, with the new model being a rebadged Nissan, I'd have to say I probably wouldn't be interested.
Reliable: Stuff works and it always works, only been to dealership for safety recall on parking brake and standard maintenance stuff;
AC: Mitsubishi makes automotive HVAC systems for OEM market, so you get top shelf stuff here at a discount;
Fuel Mileage: Mid-twentys MPG around town, over 30mpg if you keep it under 70mph on the highway, but 26mpg at 80 is pretty good too;
Transmission: CVT is probably one of the best on the market- It is programmed to do what CVTs do best and that's keep the engine in the "sweet spot" (and not pretend it's a regular automatic which defeats the whole purpose), the droning noise can be annoying, the "sport" setting is useful for engine braking (the user manual even recommends it!);
Engine: 2.4L I4 is typical Mitsubishi style powerplant- kinda noisy, paired well with transmission, loves to rev high, can cruise at 80mph all day long, plenty of torque for hills, has an actual timing chain;
Tires: OEM tires are made for fuel mileage and nothing else, upgraded to Yokohamas around 30,000 miles and it really transformed the car, I can't help but wonder how much better received it would have been in the reviews with a good set of rubber;
Stereo: Base stereo sounds great, not sure the Rockford Fosgate upgrade would bring much more to the table other than a subwoofer;
Styling: 2015 was best year in my opinion, I don't like the styling for 2016 and later;
Suspension: Tough! Potholes? This thing eats potholes (and curbs) for breakfast! Comfortable ride, too;
Interior: Seats four medium adults comfortably with two children and optionally a third child in middle row center seat in a pinch, seat fabric is durable and easy to clean, front seats are very comfortable for long trips, third row is easy to access and fold away, hidden storage compartments abound;
Exterior: Orange (copper) paint looks great but it is thin! Chips and scratches come easily, but I've come to accept it, besides- it adds "character";
Summary: If you need a family car that can do a little bit of everything and take a beating, this is it. If you're reading this today, I'm assuming you are in the used market and I would wager these are good bets for the money, assuming the oil and filters have been changed.
