    My car

    Bought a brand new (pre-Reg) Elegance with all the usual toys. Added Privacy glass option for £250. Once warmed up is very smooth and heated seat are a godsend. All the kit is well thought out. Thought long and hard between Honda CR-V and This one. Got a great deal (3K off) and some of the Honda clutch comments by other users put me off. The RAV-4 was also great but it looked more like a car from the back as did the TIGUAN and I wanted it for what it was- a 4x4. Love it.

    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.
