    My car

    My situation changed and instead of driving my subaru imprezza , i needed to seat five with occasional seven seat use. I opted for the warrior form with black leather and red paintwork which in my opinion looks great!

    Still early days as its only gone 2.5k , no problems as yet . The drive is very car like , the driving position is good and everything is well laid out on the dashboard . Everything appears well screwed together and is easy to use.

    Having read the other reviews there appears two problem areas

    1. The engine being unrefined . I havnt found this a problem , the engine noise is not obtrusive IMO and the 6 speed box works well. i also know this engine to be reliable. As for the manufacturors figures i have only managed about 5 mpg less than they have stated . This is probably because the engine is still freeing up .

    2. Seats uncomfortable at the back. If you need seven seats dont buy the outlander , however if there for occasional use i find them very useful and easy to use.

    Overall a cracking car , the wife loves it , the kids love it and i think i do too!!!

    My car

    I bought an ex demo Outlander elegance in March this year. I am fairly pleased with the car. It's good for 4/5 passengers,but cramped with flip up seats up for 7 passengers. I agree with experts opinion on the engine resonance being a bit crude. I have just had the engine chipped by the Mitsubishi dealer, BHP up from 138 to 167,torque increase from 310 to 365nm@2500rpm. Engine is now more responsive and quieter and I would recommend this upgrade.

    My car

    I was just about to buy one of these, when I was persuaded by the dealer (who sells several makes of new car) to test drive the Hyundai Santa Fe. What, a Hyundai - are you serious??? The difference on the motorway was incredible - less engine noise, far less road noise and a much smoother diesel engine which sounds and drives like a petrol engine. I bought the Hyundai instead and if you try it, you will do the same.

    My car

    I was looking for a car to replace my rather eco-unfriendly Mitsubishi Shogun Sport. I looked at the Honda CRV but didn't like the looks and the Landrover Freelander's boot was too small and not practical enough.

    I took delivery of my Warrior two weeks ago and the next day set of to Austria on holiday with the family. I was immediatly impressed with the car. In black with tinted windows, leather and chrome it looks stunning and turned a few heads on the way.It easily coped with the family and luggage. The drive was great: it handles more like a family saloon than a 4x4.

    The six-speed box is great, and the dash is well layed out and simple to use. Fuel economy has been about 40mpg and I have been getting well over 400 miles on a tank. One thing I would like to see as standard is parking sensors, as the rear view is not the best.

    My only dislike was the low end power, until you get to about 2000rpm.
