    My car

    Was interested in a 2.0 Elegance, but dealer offered a showroom 2.2 Diamond for the same price. Real-chuffed with purchase. Practical, drives great & kids love it. The entertainment system WOW-factor not worned-off yet.

    Some clever design touches - easy 4-WD selection, split tailgate, fold-away 3rd row seats, auto rain & light sensors, lots of cubby holes & drinks-holders. Only complaint - clock is part of touch screen display and is tiny at one corner. Otherwise, a lot a car for the money.

    My car

    We bought the 2.2 Diamond to replace a very disappointing Freelander. Mitsubishi's "Sale" knocked £3000 off the list price in September. We've now done just under 2000 miles, and we are very pleased with the car. Equipment-wise, it has just about everything you can think of - 30Gb entertainment system, separate rear DVD, Sat Nav, reversing camera, sunroof, electric leathers, barometer/altimeter, etc.

    The 2.2 diesel is torquey and smooth once warmed. We're getting an average of around 33 mpg - not bad for a mix of motorway and town runs.

    The interior is roomy for 5 adults, but the third row seats are really only suitable for kids - but at least there is capacity for 7, unlike the Freelander.

    Overall, for just over £24000 new, great value and highly practical.

    My car

    I recently bought an Outlander, and have been very pleased with the car, especially the fuel economy in which I appear to consitently be getting greater than 40mpg. However, I have received very disappointing service from the garage I bought it from and from Mitsubishi. I was unfortunate to have a flat tyre whilst working 200 miles from home, and had great problems trying to replace the tyre. Mitsubishi breakdown services declared it 'wasn't sensible' to take me home, and I subsequently had to drive the 200 miles at 50mph on a spacesaver, when no-one appeared to know what the safe mileage limit was. When trying to replace the tyre, it appeared that there were insufficient tyres available in the UK, and I eventually had to pay an unscrupulous garage 40% more than the standard costs of the tyre to replace it. I bought this car because, as a woman driving long distances on her own it appeared reliable and safe, and potential owners should know that after-sales support from Mitsubishi is poor.

    My car

    I was looking for spacious family transport with diesel economy and had been weighing up a Passat estate and Volvo estate when I came across a review of the Outlander. I ended up with a pre-registered Elegance in metallic blue with beige leather.

    I would agree with most of the reviews above. The engine lacks guts low down but it is not a big problem. Neither is it as vocal as some of the reviews would have you believe. Once under way it is fine and pick up on the motorway is great.

    I am not a fan of the standard satnav which is not very intuitive and has taken us on some odd routes but the stereo is good and it records to the hard disk as it plays CDs.

    I have no idea how it goes off road nor any intention to find out. As versatile all weather family transport however it is excellent. It has a huge boot (which can be expanded by sliding the rear bench), the third row is fine for small children in car seats, the split tailgate is a great place to sit whilst removing wellies and being that bit higher than a saloon it is much easier to reach in to strap the kids in. I like the way it looks and find it enjoyable to drive. I also get 40mpg on most journeys and around 36mpg on a (very) fast motorway run.

    I would recommend the Outlander but would say that in top spec pre-owned / pre-registered makes more sense than paying the full new price.
