Summary:

Meets or exceeds all my expectations

Faults:

Paint flawed from factory needed partial repaint.

Paint seems weak, stone chips prevelant, even on rear of vehicle.

General Comments:

This one is a real good looker. Not boxy like some.

Luxury car like highway ride.

Luxury car like interior appointment.

Dealer supplied tires are general use and not very good in Canadian snow winter.

Mits dealers up here are very anxious to sell and are willing to wheel and deal to get your business.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I'm well satisfied with my Outlander. The last gas loadup produced 25.5 MPG WOW! And some speeds were in the seventies.
