Great little wagon/suv, great value ! - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
By details - July 29 - 12:24 pm
I've had my Outlander sport ES with CVT for just over 2 months. I think it's a pretty nice little car/suv/wagon, whatever you want to call it. I really like the way it looks. The power seems more than adequate, it rides smooth and quiet, hardly any tire or wind noise, handles great, gets good mileage. At 1400 plus miles my MPG has ranged from 24.3 right after I took delivery to 27.4 on my last fill up in mixed driving, probably 35/65 City/Hwy. If you look at all the various road tests, the base model with the 5 speed gets very good 0-60 mph and 1/4 mile times, but most of the road tests are done with the loaded SE model with AWD which weighs more and isn't as fast. My 2WD ES with CVT is quite peppy especially in the manual mode using either the paddles or the shift lever. I've taken my car up to the mountains twice since I got it and the ability to shift it manually in the 6 power ranges of the CVT transmission made going up the hills and back down a lot of fun. In the reviews they keep comparing the Outlander Sport to the Kia Sportage which is slightly larger and heavier, I think a better comparison would be with the Toyota Matrix/Pontiac Vibe which is very close in size and weight. When I purchased my Outlander Sport in early April I got a super deal, they took $1675 off the sticker price, they gave me over low book for my trade-in, an 06 Kia Sportage, and they financed the balance for 4 years at 0% interest rate. There's a lot of other nice features, the electronics, storage space, dash display, great warranty, etc. I,m very happy with the deal I got and the car.
Dissapointed - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
By eyerun - June 16 - 5:12 pm
After my first long road trip in this car I was dissapointed in the comfort of the seats. They are extremely hard. Also the black interior appears to get dusty quickly. Fule economy was not at all what was promised even though I drove it so that the eco light was on as much as possible and I got about 20/25hwy. My dealership experience was also very poor.

Overall, the car is nice. It is relatively quiet (except for acceleration) and comfortable. Gas mileage is lower than it is advertised. On average it has been 18 mpg in the city and 21-22 mpg on highway. Mitsubishi dealership experience was so-so.
Great car for the money - Awesome! - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
By jc24 - November 4 - 4:17 pm
Outlander Sport rocks! Have been in the market for 3 months and tested CRV, RAV4, Tucson, Euinocx, Rogue, CX7, Sportage... you name it. Outlander is the BEST in terms what I got for my money. The SE AWD comes with standard options that no brand could compete. Drove 7000 miles in 3 months, all east coast. On highway at 65-70mph averaged 27.4mpg (vs 29), in the city-NJ/manhattan about 22.6 (vs 24) mpg. The engine is enough for this car, unless you want to race. My wife loves the car, hill support, compact, easy to park, touch and go, enough space for the kid and stuff. This car is for people young in spirit. Yes, I was hesitant at first but now is at/over par to Toyota or Honda.Why pay more?

Overall, the car is OK. It is fairly comfortable and stylish. Road noise is well dampened. It is adequate for a single person or small family. I was somewhat disappointed with the performance and fuel economy. On average fuel consumption is 18-19mpg in the city, 20-22mpg on highway. Mitsubishi dealership experience was dismal.
Perfect City Cross Over - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
By ivand1 - February 5 - 8:52 pm
I bought this car for my wife and based on her feedback the vehicle is simply awesome! I personally feel the engine lacks some power considering the weight of the vehicle; however, knowing how to use the paddle shifters do compensate for it, at the end, it all depends greatly on the driving style. On the other hand, features are above the expectations - got to love the blue Tooth connectivity, it's also spacious and priced around right. At the end, I firmly believe this vehicle is conceived with a female target in mind and for that they did get it right!
Great Crossover, would be better 6 cylinders - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
By sjcruiser36 - September 14 - 9:53 pm
I have had this vehicle since October 2012. My check engine light just came on, and the code at AutoZones states its the oxygen sensor. Hopefully this is covered by the warranty since I only have 18,000 miles on it. Other than this issue, I haven't had any others issues with it. It would be better with a 6 cylinder engine, and if the current engine didn't make the clicking noise, but its apart of the design. I haven't had any road noise issues, and she gets pretty good gas mileage especially when I'm paying attention to the green fuel efficiency line. The ride is comfortable for me, and others who are driving or are in the back seat, and the cargo space is enough for most needs.
I LOVE this SUV!!! - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
By lc8128 - August 8 - 9:03 pm
This thing gets as good mileage as my econo-box hatchback w/5-speed. I drive 60/40 Hwy/City and have been averaging 29/mpg!!! I bought the base model because I was trying to keep the cost down. I am really surprised at all the features that are STANDARD. Between the look of the vehicle, interior, electronics, & performance - this SUV has to be one of the best values out there. Good job Mitsubishi!!!
mits outlander sport nav system - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
By sysmark - May 10 - 4:58 pm
Purchased a 2011 mits outlander sport with nav and what a ripoff! The maps are outdated (2009), will not locate or direct to streets that have been built since 2005. Even my old Tom Tom sees these roads. Paid $2000.00+ and you get a 2009 map? I called the dealer (said that is the latest ) and Mits directly and have not heard a word from them. DON'T BUY THE NAV IF YOU ARE BUYING A NEW MITS AUTO!!! I HAVE BEEN A LOYAL MITS AUTO BUYER SINCE THE 90'S (3000GT VR4, MONTERO, OUTLANDER, AND NOW OUTLANDER SPORT) Make sure you ask the right question before purchasing.
Good car for the money - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
By mitsudriver1 - April 28 - 10:56 pm
I have about 30K miles on my Outlander Sport. I purchased this car for commuting and general running about in the city. It took a little getting used to since I have been driving a Large SUV with V-8 power for the last 15 years. With that said this car is adequate for what it does. ITs not a very quick off the line but if you use the paddle shifters it helps. Once up to speed it moves nicely and cruises at 75-80 mph with ease. I have found it to be pretty versitile considering its size. I am able to haul around bicycles, potting soil, plants etc. I have averaged between 26-28 mpg in mixed city/hwy driving and I don't baby this car. The handeling is very car like and generally comfortable
