Pros: leather, seat warmers sunroof and sound sorry i can't pick just one
Cons: i am used to having a more powerful engine but i drove some other four cylinder cars and this was the best out of what i tested
Advice: test drive other suvs that are compared to this one, i don't think you can find a better dealIt's great for the suv look and convenience with out feeling like you are driving a monster truck. i got the sound and sun package and the car looks great. i always get alot of complements on it. its comfortable and the height makes it easier to get things in and out of the car when you have loaded it up. compared to my husbands suv pontiac aztek its easier to drive and less stressful on my back. i consider my car truley a luxury. i definately got more bang for my buck.
Pros: Over Drive
Cons: very quiet and smooth ride. Even we dont know the engine was running.
Advice: This is the best buy according to gas milagelove the handling. Even though 4clinder it has sufficient power and as well as pickup,great milage in city like 22 mpg and highway 28mpg. I was impressed on a mtn. ski trip how well the outlander went up and came down using the sportronic shift.Absolutely great around town as well as 80 mph on the interstates. comfotable and relatively quiet, economical, sporty, and reliable suv.
Pros: the whole package , get the sound system and sunroof
Cons: leather interior somewhat lacking, fabric interior great.
Advice: a great choice; a vehicle you won't grow tired of.love the handling. if you rev it to 3000 rpm,(redline at 6200), has sufficient power. was impressed on a mtn. ski trip how well the outlander went up and came down using the sportronic shift. absolutely great around town and doing 80 mph on the western interstates. comfotable and relatively quiet, economical, sporty, and reliable suv.
Pros: Look and Feel
Cons: No keyless entry
Advice: You Buy it You will Love it!I love my Outlander Rides exellent and has a good feeling to drive it. It gives me close to 31 MPG on the Freeway
Pros: sportonic transmission and sound system
Cons: noisey, especially when you run the air
Advice: Test drive RAV4, Honda CRV and Lexus RX300. The smart buy will be the OutlanderLove the look, plenty of leg room. I purchased the XLS AWD, so the sound system leaves nothing to desire. Nice ride. 6 cyclinder would be nice and a little higher off the ground. Also I think they should include a 6 CD Changer as an option.
Pros: The roominess of the interior.
Cons: There are big gusts of air with the front windows down.
Advice: Test drive everything, you will buy this vehicle.This is a cool vehicle, I bought the 2WD for the slightly better fuel economy. I am getting 23 MPG and enjoying it. The pickup is so good, you will forget it's a 4 Cylinder. If you are considering this car, get it! Test-drive it though. I had a different ride and feel from 3 different Outlander XLS models. Get the right one for your taste.
Pros: many standard features
Cons: heated mirrors and compass are not standard
Advice: Get the alloy wheels, appearance packageI bought the Outlander LS 2WD because it's so competatively priced compared to it's competition. Seating comfort, smooth riding, and plenty of functional compartments are many additional reasons why this makes a great choice. I was looking for fuel economy without sacrificing in room or appearance. At 21 MPG/city, this is a great choice without the 'economy' looking appearance. It drives great and gaines me many a compliment.
