This is a very good car for the price. Aside from some minor tweaks and hiccups here and there, it has been mostly trouble free. I bought it in 2010 to replace my aging Outback. I was looking for a 4wd with bluetooth hands-free system. The car came with that and son much more. High-end stereo, sunroof, navigation system, leather interior, this puppy is loaded. I hadn't had to make car payments years and I didn't want to be saddled with a new, large car note. I purchased this 3-yr-old vehicle with 25K miles for 25K including the extended warranty. I've never regretted that move. This car gets surprising good gas milage for a V-6 and it has neck-snapping acceleration.
We needed to upgrade to a larger family vehicle with our growing family, I didn't however want to drive a tank! The Outlander rides like a car, very smooth! more than plenty of room! Very nice features! We bought the base model for budget reasons and it still has the leatherette seats, Bluetooth, tow hitch, three rows, 2WD, 4WD and 4WD Lock! When driving in 2WD it is front wheel instead of rear wheel which makes me feel more comfortable!
