Pros: Love the tight handling and the style
Cons: Wish the standard ES came with styled wheels
Advice: Drive the competiton and your' be back to the OutlnaderWe were downsizing from a Grand Caravan and were looking for a SUV crossover which had room enuf for our two large dogs; had some zip; and was good on gas. After test driving the CRV, Rav 4, Forester and and a Highlander, we stumbled upon the Outlander. Talk about getting the most bang for you buck. The vehicle is plenty roomy, the fit and finish are typical Japenese high quality, the gas mileage is great, as is the handling. Looks and feels like a much more expensive SUV. The warranty is amonsgt the best in the business.
Pros: the room it offers
Cons: the es doesn`t come with optional roof rails

Pros: Plenty of usable hp coupled to a great 6 speed sportronic trans
Cons: None, I like everything in this SUV
Advice: Buy a 4WD if it snows in your area. Get a car with all 3 factory options in, and bargain with the dealer for the priceI 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 gay. 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. 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.
Pros: The gadgets and comfort, you feel like you are in a luxury vehicle when you are driving in this!
Cons: 3rd row seat is useless as I really don't know who you would want to stick in those.
Advice: Drive the CR-V, Rav4, Compass and Equinox, all comparable vehicles, and I cannot see choosing those over the Outlander.I've driven dozens of cars over the past three weeks and I have not come across any car that drove like this, and came with as many features, for the price. The only car I drove that was comparable to the drive was the Subaru Tribeca, but that was about $5k more and you need to use premium gas. This car had amazing features for just over $30k and they included a great Navigation system, an awesome 650watt Rockford Fosgate sound system, ability to download 2500 songs into the hard drive, heated leather seats, Bluetooth, sunroof, Xenon lights, you name it!!!
