Bought my 04 Outlander new off the lot in 2004 and was pleased right off with the handling which is very car like for an SUV. The car was great for hauling stuff around in fact I used it to move myself 3 times while I owned it. I sold the car at 120k miles and in that time I had no mechanical problems except the brake disks which I had to replace twice after they were bent by the calipers. My only disappointment was that the seats where highly uncomfortable and the ride was a bit stiff for my bad back. I guess the road noise was a bit high but not too bad. The car was supposed to come with free oil changes for life, but the dealer refused because I moved shortly after I bought it. The engine was willing and efficient for an SUV. I would still have my Outlander but I had an opportunity to buy a Mercedes and I couldn't pass it up even though I had to trade in my outlander. I miss the car but it did serve me well while I had it. It comes highly recommended.

On bumpy roads the ride is terrible

I bought this car from a rental company with 23,000 miles on it, and it was the best purchase I've ever made. I live in a place with a harsh winter environment so I've always owned Jeeps, but this little goer has never failed to get me there. It handles great, rides smooth and quiet on the highway (80 is it's favorite speed)and has required nothing but routine maintenance, aside from new tie rod ends at 95,000 miles.

Horrible on rough roads!

Bought new, loved styling. Comfortable interior, good engine performance. Horrible ride due to bumpy roads. Okay if you live in area with no salt and snow. You really feel every bump and crack in road. Hence, expensive repairs for suspension (tie-rod ends, upper & lower control arms). Spent $2,000 at 66,000 mi. Will need more suspension work next year (struts). Other than that, very reliable. Would not buy again due to suspension problems in this area (bad roads).

This is a good reliable vehicle. I have owned it for two years, put 30k on it (77k total now), and other than routine maintenance have only had to replace the tie rods ($100 a piece). Smooth on the highway and can be a bit bumpy on roads with potholes of which there are plenty around here. The AWD is functional and never left me stranded (and I see a lot of snow).

I bought my 2004 outlander used 5 years ago there was already 850000 mile on it I drove it 5 years 160000miles I dont remember one day I spend a penny for fixing it and then its only natural for a car owner to think about his next car after about certain mileage because of the increasing fear of repairing future costs thats when I look around on the web to see some reviews online about the trouble this bad boy about to bring up on me I find a few owners who drove it 320000miles with just an oil change. O well its just gone be me and my beb at list for 2-3 years great Car Really. I highly recommend it!

Have enjoyed having and driving this car--bought it used some years ago--but now it's getting more challenging as suspension parts are rusting and needing replacement, and getting parts and having a Mitsubishi dealer (now 2 hours away) do the safety recall work. I'm sad to say I will not get another Mitsubishi automobile with the distance I have to travel to get to a dealer.

Excellent car

by from New York on June 19, 2017

Bought the car used with 160k miles. A year and a half later the car still runs and looks like new (fantastic engine, and amazing paint). Amazing 4wd system. Great off road.
