      i'm on my second mitsubishi....both outlanders (2016 and 2017) Horrible build quality. 4 months into owning it , the ABS module started leaking lots of brake fluid....destroyed all the paint in engine bay and subframe. Mitsubishi said too bad. Now , brand new car with exposed sheet metal ...will rust in a year. Lots of other issues with the car also. side view mirror cracked in half while driving on highway...never seen something like that in my life...nobody believes me...including the dealer. Interior squeaks and rattles after few months of fine pavement driving. I wanted something different than the usual honda and toyota....big costly mistake on my part. also, their dealerships are 3rd world...1 mechanic, 1 service rep..etc.....mom/pop feel when you deal with them. i live in fort lauderdale , so lots of dealers around....all with the same feel....subpar. Good news is they never feel crowded...show rooms are ghost towns. For what you get , their pricing should be way under the competition....by a 1/4 , just to stay in business. Both my cars averaged 15 mpg combined ....for a small suv ( i gave mitsu a shot because of long financing deals they had....6 years at 0 apr....wasn't worth it.

      My wife just bought one. Hers is the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander SEL and we love how it performs and the value is second to none compared to other SUV size of its kind. For the price of what u get it's a great deal and btw it's 100% made in JAPAN. So quality is good. Thanks for the nice video.

      I wish the outlander had the 1.2 in the back for emergency low fuel situations.

      I think the Outlander is a model that still keeps the spirit of the traditionals SUVs while competing in the Crossover market. That exterior tire and the ground clearance of more than 8 inches makes it a very capable SUV.
      In addition, look at the interior, is simple, not complicated and very like a true SUV, not pretending to be a big sedan....
      The Diesel version available in Australia is very cool, like having a mini Montero Sport.
      It is sad it doesnt have air vents in the back, but I really think I can live with that, as my CR-V 2000 doesnt have them either... I am not fan of CVT, but considering the fuel economy, the space inside and the off road capability, that would be a car I can buy, forgiving those details. I mean, it is made in Japan, I can expect durability... After all, the Outlander has been a great car since its second generation, and even thoug the first generation was not that good, there are many of that model still running in the world.

      Hmmm, Interesting vehicle. I don't know about allot of the features here. I am not all that impressed. I was hoping for more since Honda, and Toyota, and Nissan give allot more. What is with that back seat. Springy cheap that screams. This from the company that made my favorite cars like the EVO, the Diamond star coupes. The awesome 3000 GT VR4. What are they doing to impress me now? Not too much. I could get more from a Hyundai or Kia than here. It just looks like a half hearted effort from a once great car company that could build great cars.

      I have an '06 Highlander with no central a/c vents and down in south Louisiana it gets hot. The grandkids really don't like the third row because of that. The a/c must be kept on high for them to get some sort of breeze in the back. This is 2016 Mitsu! Poopoo on you.

      I would like to see the third row seating to be an option again. Not everyone needs it. The extra storage under the floor there would be a welcome benefit. I used to have the 2003 Outlander (original one) and loved it. Granted, it was not very powerful, but it was adequate for my driving style. With over 200K trouble free miles, I was sold on Mitsubishi's dependability, so I traded it last year for a new 2015 Outlander Sport. So far, very happy.

      I agree. The third row should be optional. I like this vehicle, but don't need the 3rd row and would much better benefit from extra cargo room.

      I own a 2013 AWD Outlander with a 2.4 L motor. Overall I am very happy with my Outlander, it looks cool and rides well, is well made, but it does have a weakness...it is underpowered...really underpowered. I am actually surprised Mitsubishi is still selling a very good vehicle with an underpowered motor. If Mitsubishi wants to sell these, then bump the base motor HP to a minimum of 190 hp and then offer a V6 that is pushing a minimum of 250 hp. Do that, and they'll sell a ton of these.

      Has Mitsubishi contacted you about some stuff that was an issue? I do like this suv but i wish it had rear A/C vents seeing on how large the suv is.

      TestDrivenTV hey Sam, love your style. just a thought.. why not consider a short nighttime segment so we can see what the interior looks like at night. buttons controls displays, etc? dumped my 08 Highlander... I never took to the nighttime lighting

      The car companies don't usually contact us with issues we report unless it was a quality defect.

      Hey Sam, I have a 2016 Outlander and am ery satisfied with it. I just thought I would comment on where you mentioned there not being any HVAC vents in the back. They actually run underneath the front seats. When I first bough mine i thought the same thing until one day when I was cleaning out the vehicle and since it was hot I had the A/C running and felt the cold air blowing from under the front seat and into the back. I looked under the front seats and there they were.

      +mterwill9 Correct, but that doesn't blow air in the upper body which is most important in hot climates.

      The front grill and fascia are a hideous design which looks like a gaping hole. Mitsubishi's designers could have done a much better job. It's a deal breaker for me.

      I just purchased this vehicle for my wife. Not the leather seat model shown here. But my wife loves it and it beats her 2004 Grand caravan that was falling apart after 136,000 miles.

      +Agarpro Go I recently ordered on of these, there are ducts under the driver and passenger seat for climate control to the 2nd row, I don't believe anything feeds third row.
