I love the car other than it about broke my legs.

I gave one star because I almost got killed in this 2007 Mitsubishi outlander. Due to the suspension rotting away breaking parts off the car. And I was skidding on the bottom of the car across the rd. Because the tire ,control arms and shock broke clear off the car due to the frame being completely corroded the point it could not handle the downward push of the strut and hitting a small bump in the rd. And almost caused me to go into oncoming traffic. Don't even have 100.000 miles on it. The air conditioning leaves into the engine compartment causing more corrosion. It's not just the salt .it's the design of the suv.it needs fixed immediately or things are gonna end up in court. I was injured due to this poor engineering. Folks beware always check the crossmembers and the whole under chassis . That could be your last ride.


Love my Mitsubishi!

I have now a little bit over 100,000 miles on this car. It never let me down. besides the regular maintenance (oil change, new battery, new tires, break pads) I never had any major issues with this car. If I could get the very same model brand new, I would buy it in a heart beat. I drive 3 huge dogs around, they all fit in. I bought it in 2006 slightly used with 14,000 miles. Awesome car!


Why aren't there more Mitsubishi's?

Most reliable car I've owned. Surprisingly a lot of fun to drive. I own the 5-Speed Manual. It shifts like it's a sports car! It's one of those cars that makes you want to go on more adventures. When considering the price I bought it for, how reliable it has been, how reliable I am confident it will be, and how comfortable it is...I say snatch one while you still can. Really don't know why more Mitsubishi's aren't on the road. Way better experience with Mitsubishi than with Toyota and Honda.
