Outstanding or Outmatched?

With a that sounds like an insult, the 2006 Mitsubishi SE 2WD is definitely an underdog in the small SUV bearing a base price of a 5 year/60,000 mile basic and a 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain (for the original owner 5 for subsequent owners). The car-based SUV 21 mpg city/27 highway according to the and there are enough accessories to make any mountain biking paddler happy all the way to the X-Games.


The Outlander is a good little SUV, with shapes and nice curves make it appear bigger its size. It’s more in the Forester school of design the Toyota RAV4 or Honda both of which try to look functional than attractive. The has a pronounced snout with the three-diamond logo and a simple

Its large headlights sit at the corners a chunk of the hood and a chunk of the setting up a theme of intersecting lines. A heavy-duty looking rack adorns the top of the Outlander. Add a Sport Rack Kit, and you can add on various and sundry kayak bicycle and snowboard carriers to your SUV live up to its U. The Outlander is a civilized-looking vehicle, not a rugged like the Xterra.

The Outlander’s hatch swings up, offering head clearance for loading and a low load floor. The rear compartment is kind of small, as the seat angle and the angle of the hatch conspire to pinch on the A flimsy vinyl cargo is included to keep your private.

There’s a good of body roll, and the engine you know when you’re too much with increased and a labored sound. My Outlander with a 4-speed automatic with adaptive shift and a clutchless manual shift

I never felt in sync the transmission in either auto or mode.
