A good buy.. depending on what you're going to use it for. by John from Iowa on 06/14/2010. Trim: 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS 4WD, Owned 2 years.

Pros: Nice, small, multi-purpose vehicle with plenty of cargo room for it's size. Has a peppy, strong, and trouble-free 3.0L V6 that handles trailers with little issue. Stylish and fairly comfortable inside. Handles like a sports car and makes turns on a dime -- perfect for any tight parking lot! The dropping bumper/tailgate feature is very unique and useful when moving larger items. Love the keyless start and touch-sensitive entry system. Lots of room in the back seat and even third-row seating. Dash-lighting is really nice and easy on the eyes at night.
Cons: #1 Gripe: Interior is shoddy. Plastics are very soft and scuff easily. I use my CUV for quite a bit of utility and the cargo area is starting to look rather rough. Most of the plastic "slider" rails have popped off already since they were just very sparingly glued on there to begin with. Busted airbag mount in steering wheel and ABS sensor went bad in under 10k miles. Wheel wells did not hold up well against the elements (flimsy plastic) are a bit tore up from the winter.. looks like the larger XLS rims with stock tires scrubbed a bit. Front-end is prone to misalignment. Heavy torque-steer is dangerous in the winter or on went roads.
Overall review: Never been a huge Mitsubishi fan; however, after reading reviews on this vehicle I decided it was a good buy and I figured I'd give the underdog a chance. Overall, despite the cons, it still was a pretty good buy at the time. Would not recommend it if you plan on doing a lot of utility-related stuff such as moving items, have dogs, etc. As I said, the plastic in the interior is extremely soft and flimsy. I had to have the front end realigned with 19k miles on it -- Never had a vehicle go out of alignment as often as this thing does. Would I buy again? Probably not.. but that is just because it wasn't right for my needs. I do tow with it (Class IV hitch) and it does that amazingly well for it's size. It is fun to drive and easy on the gas mileage. I trust it to get me from point A to B with no issues. Will probably hold onto it for a while as it did have a great warranty and with zero percent financing.
