2005 Mitsubishi Outlander - LS FWD
Pros: Easy to drive, bad resale/trade-in value
Cons: scratches easily on exterior and interior. A little small, especially in the leg room dept.
Advice: Test drive others in this same category. Consider your needs before purchasing.I like the car/SUV. It's fun and easy to drive. We have two small children so it's a tight fit for the four of us. Cargo space is limited as is leg room. We've been very happy with the performance of this vehicle. We also love the warranty/free oil changes/free tires for life. If we didn't have kids we'd keep it. We need more room so we're looking at vans. The trade-in value sucks! We paid about $23,000 and today the dealer told us the most we could get for the outlander is $13,000. It's only 6 months old & w/low mileage! My advice, buy used so you don't take the huge hit we did on a new one.
