2005 Mitsubishi Outlander GLS 2.4 Gasoline from Honduras
Thirsty, but great family car
Suspension is normally great, but wears out fast.
As with all Mitsubishi, paint quality is so so.
The fuel economy is low: around 19-22 mpg.
Service in Honduras is limited to one dealer who has a bad reputation on client friendliness and level of client satisfaction. They're one of the two most important reason I'd think twice to buy another Mitsubishi (the other is fuel economy).
There is one specific problem with the automatic transmission: when parking you first have to put in neutral, pull up the emergency brake, release the foot brake and then you can put the transmission in Park. Otherwise, especially on slopes, the transmission will get stuck and you have to exercise excessive pull to get it out of Park again.
Smooth drive, good traction and a powerful engine.
Has a good height, although the bad road conditions in the country could do with a more sturdy suspension.
Has great extras, lights are turned off when leaving the car, intelligent interval wipers.
The transmission is great, I love the triptronic, where you can manually change shifts.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
