About Mitsubishi Outlander

The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander SUV may not be a well-known commodity, but when compared to the Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue and Dodge Journey, it stands up surprisingly well. With a choice of 4- or 6-cylinder engines, two all-wheel-drive (AWD) systems and a host of cutting-edge safety and infotainment features, Mitsubishi’s Outlander crossover SUV proves both competent and affordable. With a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, the Outlander’s coverage is nearly double that of the Subaru Outback, but identical to the Kia Sorento. A small dealer network may limit your buying options, but if you’re looking for a 7-passenger SUV with real off-road chops and, on the V6 GT trim, a 3,500-pound tow rating, a 2017 Outlander may be in your future.

"It took me a year to decide to buy this car. I have the GT trim with v6. I waited so I could test drive the new cx-9. I'd already checked out the other 2 and 3 row crossovers. Pilot, crv, highlander, rav4, Sorrento, santa Fe, explorer, cx-5, etc. I tried a lot of cars. The outlander is 185" long. That's about 10" shorter than the Honda pilot. About 5" more than the crv. That puts it closer to the 2 row crossovers class than the 3 rows. So it's a compact that also offers a 3rd row. The only competitor in America is the Rogue, which doesn't come with a v6. The mazda5 is discontinued here. So you can't really compare it with the largest vehicles. It's not meant to be that. In asia you have many choices like the Honda stream and Toyota wish which are not sold here. The outlander is the perfect vehicle if you live in an old city like Philadelphia. Small streets, small garages and challenging parallel parking. My old Honda accord was slightly longer and didn't have a 3rd row. Now I even have a backup camera. No more accidentally bumping other vehicles. The 3rd row is for kids obviously. Do you live in a household that has 7 full size adults? If you do, then this car is not for you. But for families with 3-4 kids, this is great. Access to the 3rd row is a little tight but kids can easily get back there. I bought this because grandparents come to visit and it's great to have them and 2 kids in one car for dinner. I think the outlander gets bad reviews because reviewers are trying to fit this car into categories which it doesn't fit. On its own merit, the outlander has unrivalled value. The v6 is powerful enough. I haven't done a 0-60 but it merges into the highway much easier than my accord 4cyl. So it has to be below 8 secs 0-60. The ride is comfortable and handling is good. The steering is a little light. Not great for highway but perfect for city. The turning radius beats all 3 row vehicles. Then the nice stuff. Fosgate 700watt stereo with touchscreen, backup camera, auto dimming rear view mirror, power folding heated side mirror, wiper deicer, power tailgate, keyless entry, S-AWC, leather, flat folding seats, sunroof, etc. that's a lot of stuff you're getting for around $30,000. Plus the GT comes with a 6speed auto and not cvt. MPG on the highway is accurate at 27mpg but it's a bit brutal in the city. I get about 15mpg but my commute is only 3 miles of stop signs and traffic lights. So it is what it is. I'm happy to accept that. The daytime running lights are disabled for America. You can turn it on via ETACS. Don't know why Mitsubishi would disable a safety feature. The paint is also kinda thin. I'm going to get opticoat pro plus to preserve it. My GT came with remote start and I thought I'd never use it but we've had consecutive 95+ weather and it's been really awesome to have it. The range is pretty good too. Bottom line, if you live in a tight spaces and need to haul people, this is the vehicle for you. Comes with 10/100,000 power train warranty. 5/60,000 bumper to bumper. No I'm not a Mitsubishi salesperson. We are a Honda family, owned Crv, accord, civic, Integra. I made a leap of faith after considering every option on the market and I am happy I bought this car."

"We have had this car for 3 years now and it has been perfect for us, a family of 4 (plus a dog). It has never needed any major work (as opposed to prior cars, VW Passat and Jeep Wrangler), and the few times we needed to take it to the dealer, the work has been covered by the impressive warranty. Mitsubishi knows what they are doing. We bought a second Mitsubishi two years ago (i-Miev, all electric) and have been equally impressed by the quality. Gas mileage is amazing as well for an SUV. We do a lot of house rehab work, and the car holds tons of cargo with the seats folded down, or on the (aftermarket) roof rack. I wouldn't change a thing!"
