Juro Special Edition
MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER 2.2 DI-D Juro 5dr SST (Review date: 7th March '12)
This car is a good practicle car with plenty of room with lots of extras + the two extra seats in the back.
This is the first Mitsubishi I have owned and have had the car for a year now as it was an X demonstrator and have been pleased with performance/economy on MPH around 35mph - 39MPH on motorways.
My only recent reservation is some of the plastics around the seat rails that are a bit thin and fall off.
I now have an intermittent fault with the SST auto change from 2nd to 3rd gear which my main dealer cannot locate under warrenty and can give a thud when under load with the gearbox cold so the SST gearbox is not as smooth as I expected it to be.
This has taken a bit of a shine off what seems to be a good car and it maybe just mine, but something to watch if purchasing.
A great all rounder
MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER 2.0 DI-D Elegance 5dr (Review date: 20th January '12)
We have owned this car for over 2 years now and all I have is praise for it so far.
We wanted a car that was spacious enough to carry a family of 4, and tow a jet ski with all the associated kit. With the kids out growing our previous car this has more than enough space for all. The back seats slide back and also recline for extra comfort. The boot is large and has the extra facility to carry 2 more passengers in a fold out seat arrangement. All beit for smaller members of the family.
The only tow bar you can fit on these cars is a removable one as when it is in place you cannot lower the bottom half of the rear tailgate.
The Elegance model comes with a Rockford Fosgate stereo system with sub woofer which is great. not only does it sound good but it has a hard drive built in with the Satnav. This allows you to record any CD's on to it so you don't have to keep CD's in the car.
The Elegance model certainly has enough kit on it, including;
Heated front seats, driver electric seat, Sunroof, Leather,Bluetooth and all the usual refinements.
The engine has enough power and pulls fine. Fuel economy pretty good as well considering the size,The only drawback for me is that it is a little noisy especially when you first start up, but once you're rolling you tend to forget.
All in all we are very pleased and would reccomend this to anyone.
I hope this helps

Great car with plenty of room for kids and dogs. The elegance edition has all the extras you would expect from a luxury car for a fraction of the price. Fuel economy is good fora large car. On a recent trip (mainly motorway) I managed to average 48 mpg. One criticism is that Sat Nav has only partial postcode identification.
MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER 2.2 DI-D Juro 5dr SST (Review date: 19th November '11)
Have had the card for over year and have been very happy with it. After being stranded in snow for two winters in a row, we needed to replace our Toyota Previa with something similar in size and performance with true 4x4 capablity, for our kids and large dog.
We selected the Outlander after test drives including Nissan X-trail and Honda CRV, and found these just too small or not true 4x4 performance. On the other hand the larger 4x4s ie Discovery, Shogun, are both impractical for town/ shopping centre parking with high running costs.
Its true that the fold down rear seats are small, and if you need these on a day to day, then don't buy. However, we prefer to the use of huge boot, and spacious permanent seats, while having the ability to use the fold downs for additional passengers on the odd occasion that we need the full seven seats.
The build quality is great, it runs very well, is well designed and finished, and very good value.

MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER 2.2 DI-D GX4 5dr (Review date: 15th October '11)
I have owned a series of Mitsubishi cars from the L200 thought to the Shogun. I therefore thought that the Outlander would live up to the Mitsubishi's previous reputation - what a mistake. This car is terrible; the handling is abysmal, it drives like a boat, the front wheels spin at the touch of the accelerator and on cornering. The rear seats are as good as useless you have to be aged 5 or less to get in them. The fuel consumption on the dash states 42mpg when the car is dong 35mpg max.
Purchasing this car was a major mistake, every day I pray for the day I can get shut of it.

Just too slow!
MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER 2.0 DI-D Warrior 5dr (Review date: 3rd June '11)
Bought this car as a replacement for a Subaru wrx, what a mistake! Yes it's practical and Roomey, but that's where the plus points end for me. It's slow and I feel like a grandad driving it. The extra seats are practically no good as you can't put kids seats on them safely as they are so soft. I have no doubt it will prove very capable in the snow with it's four wheel drive. Today it was 24 degrees out and it wasblike driving a greenhouse on wheels as the air con is not very strong...
Can wait to get rid of it.....

MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER 2.2 DI-D GX4 5dr (Review date: 6th April '11)
I have owned a Mitsubishi for over three years, after part exchanging my Range Rover. I was looking for a car with better fuel economy but with still some of the advantages that the Range Rover gave me. It is a 4x4, has cruise control and a drop down boot, these where the main reasons.
It is a lovely car to drive, quick when you need it to be, spacious inside. I have two kids and three dogs so I need the room. It is very economical to run for a big car. I do alot of motorway so the cruise control and the six gears are great. I also use the car for off road use, my husband is a farmer, it handles wet and muddy conditions very well, sometimes the ground clearance can be a bit of a issue but generally it performs very well off road. Lovely car to own and enjoyable to drive.
MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER 2.0 DI-D Warrior 5dr [Leather] (Review date: 22nd March '11)
I leased this 4x4 for 6 months and it was a pleasure. I only got rid of it as it was manual and I could not cope as I prefer automatics. It was economical, smooth, classy and looked great in black with chrome exterior trim. The diesel engine was great and nippy.
My only criticism is that from certain angles it looked rather strange especially the side profile. I wish I had had a closer look before acquiring one. Overall a pleasure.
