Mostly reliable family car, but has trouble with age.

Very spacious, durable (was rear ended twice within six months but the bumper is still intact and damage is not noticeable), safe and comfortable. However, at seven years old, starting to have transmission trouble that mechanic is having a hard time figuring out, not amazing mileage but acceptable, heating and air conditioning takes awhile to kick in.

For an SUV, it has great gas mileage, a reliable reputation, and great cargo space.

My vehicle operates great. I like the fuel efficiency, the general reliability, and the fact that it works when I need it to. It's been great to maintain as a car and doesn't cost too much everytime I take it in for a simple oil change. I guess the only thing I don't dig is the current color (fire engine red), but that can be changed.

Proud owner of a 2012 Mitsubishi outlander sport se.

I haven't had any issues with my vehicle. It's great on gas, runs well, has a great sound system with a panoramic roof, all electronic features, can be driven in 2 or 4 wheel drive and has a hatchback and plenty of room for storage. It also has heated seats and can fit 5 people even though back seat room can be a little limited.
