Love It!!! — Love it. Best car I've had so far...the handling and feel is amazing...I've always had Acura but I might have found a new favourite car make. The finish is surprisingly well done and the premium sound system is out of this world for a SUV.

Best Suv For The Money — Picking it up in 1-2 weeks. The test car was perfect. Drives like a smaller car. Great space, a bit smaller heads space in the back. Split tailgate is a nice touch. Outside is not too fancy, but still gorgeous. Interior is simple clear, with the nav option lots of gadgets, great music system. Good value for the money.

A Great Suv, Its Flaws Are Forgivable Given The Rest Of The Package Is Great — I started out not liking SUVs at all, I believed all of them to be wasteful vehicles. I didn't feel the need to change this view until I drove this vehicle, now I have to drive them in order to say whether I still have this view. The Outlander with its V6 engine moves the SUV rather well. Its not lightning quick but it never feels delayed and its great to drive on the highway. Normally big, tall, heavy SUVs feel terrible going around corners the Outlander actually feels like a car when it comes to corners. Other than more power, there's nothing more to improve for the Outlander. The interior is really the weakest part of the Outlander. The plastics aren't very attractive and it feels bigger than it really is. The seats are quite comfortable for cloth seats and it has extra seats in the rear although the passengers in the 3rd row will need to be small to feel comfortable. Its best suited for 5 seating, the 7 seating configuration does cancel my criticism of wasteful SUVs. The car is started with a keyless system, if your key fob is not present in the car it won't start which is neat. The build quality despite being from Japan isn't spectacular but rather average. In the case of reliability for Mitsubishi, this is the only time where I haven't found the criticisms of Mitsubishi to be founded. None of these have given me any issues. The fuel tank is the worst aspect though, it has SUV consumption but a pathetic 50L tank forcing you to fill up frequently. Overall I really like this SUV, this is the best SUV I've driven. Maybe there is a better one I've yet to drive but for now I crown this Outlander as something I'd recommend any day.

I Love It! — I like the size and cargo capacity (2nd row seats fold forward). It is sharp looking and gets decent mileage on the highway. Front seats could be more comfortable. Dig the paddle shifters, but the transmission shifts too much from 6th gear is auto. Can go from auto shift to manual shift with cruise control on. Great for going up hills manually shifting w/o having the cruise disengage. Good low-end torque, but top end is shallow. Typical V6 these days.

Fun To Drive. Works As Our Family Vehicle. — Build quality could be better. It has huge blind spots at the A pillar where the mirrors are . The engine is very noisy. This car is pretty reliable and looks good for the price we paid. I would say best value in its class.
