I previously owned a sedan and definitely wanted to upgrade to an SUV. Like most other consumers, I set my sights on the "popular" SUVs. But as I researched, I became discouraged by the fact that most of them cost more than I wanted to spend. I thought I would have to settle for some type of station wagon or the like. That is until I ran across the current Mitsubishi line. I didn't expect too much when I went to test drive this car. But as soon as I drove it, I knew it was what I wanted. For all intents and purposes, it's an SUV, although some would classify it as a wagon. The steering wheel controls and rear privacy glass windows were both features I wanted in my new car, and definitely pluses for me. The V6 engine is my favorite feature and the gas mileage is decent for the type of vehicle. This car is well worth the money I spent. I've had it for 3 months now and I'm very pleased with it.

Researched this vehicle for several weeks before purchasing. I wanted an economic SUV that was sleek and sporty looking but not overly expensive. Having owned 2 Mitsubishi's in the past, I was already a fan of the interior design and sleek look of the body. I must say I love this vehicle. The XLS model is definitley the way to go, man this thing has some get up and go. The optional rear folding 3rd row seat is great when you need that extra space and folds down when you aren't using it. Mine is black with tinted windows and the nice wheels, it is very very nice looking and I get compliments on it all the time. There are a few things that could be improved: leather interior seems kind of thin visors are cheap, mirrors need lights in them dome lights need a lower switch to be able to turn them on easier. The fuse for the charger seems to go out, this was a problem in my other mitsubishi's as well. Turn signal sound very low Lights for the radio are dim, can't read the display at certain times of day. Fog lights seem to run all the time, or I haven't figured out how to turn them off. Other than these minor things the thing runs like a dream and I love it. My dog loves it too and he sometimes refuses to get out the vehicle when we get home. No problems mechanically yet, on my 2007 XLS model bought with 67,000 miles. You won't find a more fun, sleek and affordable SUV! Gas mileage is very good!

The 2007 Outlander AWD XLS that I own is great. Almost had it for one year, I have put almost 85,000 miles and no mechanical problems, just regular maintenance. It looks great and it does get good gas miles compare to my previous Mercedes Benz S.U.V. It's a great S.U.V., that is very reliable, especially in the desert heat, and safe, which is very important to me. I'd wish that it get a little better gas mileage, but I have a PZEV engine which help out the environment, so it's not bad at all. Great S.U.V.

Most Reliable Car I've Ever Owned

I bought my Outlander new in 2007 and after 8 years and 85,000 miles, I felt compelled to write a review on the value & reliability of this car. First the value, for the price this thing was packed with features. I looked at several of the competitors, mostly the highlander, RDX, and Kia but this thing was a way better value. When you add in the Bluetooth, proximity key, clamshell tailgate, AWD, 3rd row seating, you were looking well over $10K in other make/models. Also The V6 gives excellent acceleration. I blow buy other cars going up hill easily. Second the reliability was incredible, and for me why I felt compelled to write about it. Other than oil changes & tune ups and 2 interior dome light bulbs, I have never, I repeat I have never had to had one quality/reliability issue that I needed to get fixed. This is incredible considering the number of miles I have accumulated. Same battery, same belts, AC still pumps out cold air. Our other car is a Toyota Sienna and we've had nothing but quality issues, failing trim, stuck sunroof, draining batter due to electronics. Anyways, I will probably get another Mitsubishi soon, but this one still keeps going.

I've owned this 07 Outlander LS for over 4 years and 50k miles. Good: Very good value for the money. You can find a good used one at a great price. No mechanical issues. Bad: Like riding in a tin box. Seats are not "all day" confortable. Hard plastics inside. Not a great SUV.

Most Value for the Money

I have researched and followed the auto news on this SUV when it was announced earlier this year that it will make debut in the US. I set my goals to wait before buying my very first car until the Outlander makes it in the market this November. Turns out the wait was very much worth it. It has the sportiest look in its class, compare that to the ugly CR-V and RAV-4, Santa Fe looks lame. For the price, You will get features that you would normally find in an SUV that costs 3 to 4K more, and even the more expensive competition does not have all it's features (like the paddle shifters). Do the math on these SUVs and it will become obvious that this SUV has the best value for money, the best warranty coverage. I finally bought mine 3 days ago, and I couldn't be happier. As a tip, if you can afford it, go get the fully loaded XLS with 4WD if it snows in your area. I live in NW Indiana and the car had its taste of bad weather the day I bought it and the 4WD didn't disappoint, I'm glad I made the right choice. Handling was superb. The tech toys in this SUV will instantly fill this review if I list all of them.Don't buy a lesser value car for much more money, get the 07 Outlander, more gadgets, high tech stuff, more SUV power with great fuel economy, for a significantly lower price than any competitor. I am very happy to have bought this car for a few hundred $ above invoice and a great APR% from Mitsubishi. Talk to your nearest dealer for the best deal! You can usually get it at a price way below MSRP. I did, and I am a proud and very satisfied owner of this fantastic SUV.

BEST SUV VALUE!

by from Northern Illinois on July 20, 2007

This vehicle is stylish and will do anything the higher priced SUV's will do and get good mileage. The 5 year full warranty is also a plus.

The 2007 Outlander not only the best buy for the money when shopping for a mid size SUV, it is a great vehicle period. I searched for months and test drove several vehicles before finding the Outlander and never looked again! I looked at the Nissan Murano and loved it but was not impressed by the price tag, the Outlander has all of the features I loved about the Murano but for a much smaller price. The interior is beautiful and it handles great in the snow! I get so many compliments on this vehicle and when people find out the price thay are shocked! I have taken it on a couple road trips and the gas mileage is great and the ride is smooth. I absolutely love this vehicle!

I bought a used Mitsubishi Outlander 2007 model in 2014 April from Japan. It is a popular car and many people in Kenya are now importing the car. The car has been performing well for the last one and half years. However, the car is now jacking as it moves slowly from start and the jacking disappears as the car gains speed. When you slow down the car also jacks. Sometimes the car comes to a stop when jacking and l have to switch off the engine and start it again for the car to move. Have also noted the review of one owner of the car in Kenya who imported the car last year experiencing the same problem. What is causing this problem in these cars?. Is it a mechanical problem with the Mitsubishi outlander 2007 moels

Great tall wagon with AWD. Does everything well. Not a very quiet or soft riding vehicle though. Mitsubishi is now all about sport and that reflects in tight steering and suspension which may not be for everyone. Lets in a lot of road noise as well. Reliability is yet to be seen but judging by the mirror rattle/wind noise, the Quality Inspection is not worth the sticker on the windshield. Overall, very pleased except for the Noise and Harshness levels.
