Suprising vehicle - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander
By geezerman - December 30 - 8:11 am
I traded in a Toyota 4Runner on a 2011 Outlander, after checking out all the competition. It was the only vehicle which met my criteria for interior/exterior size, power, mileage, warranty, and price. I was suprised that I was able to fit all the "stuff" I had in the 4Runner in the interior bins and pockets, and was suprised to see it had two large glove boxes. Also love the handy tool/stuff storage bin under the rear floor. I am getting 24 mpg around town and around 30 on the hwy., and think this is outstanding in a roomy and adequately powered small SUV. I told the dealer they need to have a better advertising program on this vehicle, as a lot more people should buy it.
1st Mitsubishi SUV- Loving it! - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander
By pcar8 - November 20 - 2:55 am
I bought a 2011 Silver Outlander a couple months ago. This is my first 'crossover' SUV. My old car was a Nissan Maxima (I've owed 2 of them) now I'm driving a Mitsubishi and absolutley love it! It is so comfortable inside and fun to drive with its fast acceleration, responsive handling and sleek design - I got more bang for my buck! Never thought a navigation system was worth it but boy was I wrong. Plus the 10gb of space on the music server really is a plus. No more dragging around CD's. I just load a CD, record it and I'm good to go on any long distance journey. Oh and the sound system is AWESOME. Did I tell you I love this SUV?
Great Little SUV! - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander
By tmo411 - December 25 - 3:05 pm
I just got my Outlander recently, but I've put 500 miles on it already. It handles great, and the V6 is very smooth. It also has a nice engine growl when you gun it a little. I got the GT model, but without all the bells & whistles. The stock stereo has a 6-CD changer, 140 watts and 6 speakers - plenty for my use. The seats are cloth centers with leather backs & sides - they felt more comfy than the full leather. You can aim the HID headlights, and they're really bright. I love the paddle shifters, too. The back seat has plenty of room for my 6'+ sons to sit in, so they like it.
Horrible No Confidence - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander
By 1lemon - November 27 - 5:44 am
If you need a car to get to work and family this is not the car. Continued electronic failures which prohibit the car from starting will cost you money and time. Wait an hour and try again until the next work day and a trip to the car rental. Beware the Outlander is a bad deal. The feeling of no confidence overtakes you when you attempt to start the vehicle and nothing happens, and let me tell you it is not a good feeling everyday after work to go through that. If you have kids and need to get home too, this auto may not be the best option.
Still Riding Strong!!! - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander
By Bigbossman - August 21 - 2:10 am
I wrote a previous review about a year ago, Mitsubishi was great with the warranty, even for the littlest things, it still ride great, gas mileage is good on the highways and in the city, it's almost time for its 60k tune up.
BEST JAPANESE SUV - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander
By gtrallyracer - May 24 - 2:27 am
I purchased a GT without sunroof and navigation on August 2011. I purchased this great SUV for its reliability reputation, awesome S-AWC system, great ergonomics and powerful V6 engine. I have owned American, Japanese, and German brands, but this time Mitsubishi is offering excellent warranty and standard features to its vehicles. I have driven already 4000 miles and fuel economy is great for this size of SUV averaging 23mpg. Driving is very predictable and sporty. The xenon headlights are incredible! I feel I have the headlights of a rally car!
Great value, great vehicle!! - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander
By tapachick - April 30 - 8:44 pm
I researched small/mid-size suv's for months. I test drove Honda's, Toyota's, Chevy's, Ford's, Mazda's and for some reason, the Outlander was the last vehicle we looked at. I don't think Mitsubishi promotes this vehicle enough. But... we fell in love with the estimated MPG, body style, and most of all, the price. My 6'4" husband loves the head room and comfortable seating. It handles great and I'm getting 22 mpg in city driving in Southern California. You can't beat the warranty and I expect the MPG to get better since I've only had the vehicle for 4 weeks. Great value and a great looking SUV, we're loving it.
4WD Gas saver lot of fun - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander
By georgechi - March 23 - 8:44 am
Great gas saver, lot of gadgets (bluetooth, handsfree, satellite radio). 5 speed manual gearbox when I need it, nobody else has it. 4WD real not a "awd". Best car I have owned and the best warranty. great power for a 4 cylinder car. Looks great out and inside. third row when I need it. everything on this car is great. Had mitsubishi all my life( montero, montero sport, mirage and the old pickups).
2011 Outlander GT - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander
By daver10 - January 13 - 4:34 pm
We had a 2004 Durango Limited and down sized to the GT Outlander. Overall it is unique looking, handles like a sports car, and in the snow it feels secure. And the MPG has been decent as I've hit 30MPG at 60mph. The thing we really like is that it has a lay flat rear "bed". Cool truck, not everyone has one!
Not a cookie cutter SUV - 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander
By benneva - January 6 - 7:12 pm
I have been looking for a new SUV for a year. When I went to the grocery I would see 2 more vehicles just like my 06 Honda CRV and in the same color. The Outlander is not a CRV or RAV4 and that is a good thing. I test drove Honda, Toyota, Nissan, and Hyundai. I traded my 06 Honda CRV for this car. The Outlander is sportier, has better seats, and it is fun to drive. I am really happy with my decision.
