#1
Great lil SUV
Source: Edmunds

...Just purchased my wife the XLS AWD w/ navigation. After reading a lot of expert reviews I was skeptical.
But most of the complaints were that the V-6 was slow and the interior was really cheap.
I would agree that the interior is not the most expensive materials used, but they are lighter weight and help reduce the total weight of the vehicle.
We have no complaints with the engine, I mean it's not a dragster and it has plenty of pep.
I am 6'04 and am able to sit in the back seat easily even with the driver seat all the way back.
The stereo and navigation system are...

Most Reliable Car I've Owned

..."First time i get a new car that i do not have to get back to the dealer before first oil change.
Fuel economie is very good for a 4 wd. vehicule. This is a very plaisent vehicule to drive in snow and slippery roads."...

Great Vehicle

...I've owned this vehicle for 7 months now after owning a galant for 3 years.
I used to love toyotas and still do, but I can tell you these vehicles are every bit as good with more warranty.
I love the awd system and the turning radius. It does excellent on bad country roads and drives nice on dry pavement. Just hit a large deer and it did very little damage considering speed...

Great small SUV

...I have had my 09 Outlander for 2 weeks now and it's great.
Handling is very good, I like the steering. Navigation is good but sometimes complicated to use, stereo has great sound strong bass.
Fuel economy is just ok, but I expected that, I average around 23- 26MPG (highway). I enjoy driving it to work and all the features work great so far, glad I decided to buy it...

#5
Very satisfied with my Outlander
Source: Edmunds

...I bought my Outlander in December 2008 after researching a number of vehicles.
I kept coming back to the Outlander for its combination of performance and utility, its value, and its unique features (hard drive nav, paddle shifters, tailgate).
I am very happy with my choice. The V6/6spd auto combo is very smooth and plenty powerful for a vehicle of this class.
Unlike other reviewers I'm completely happy with noise levels, highway or back roads. Exhaust noise is nearly imperceptible...

Missing a great opportunity

..."This vechile has great attributes ie. sytle,interior space,cvt transmission ect.
However they have drop the ball on ride quality car feels every bump in the road
,noise level inside the vehicle is awful,and the car raddles when on rough road sufaces.If they could fix these things the car would be ausome."...

ES AWD Review
Source: Edmunds

...This is my second day with this "CUV" and can tell already (as long as no problems come up) that it will be in the family for at least the next 5-6 years.
It's comfortable, rides smooth, and it has all the space in the world as far as cargo. We test drove the comp. (rav4, santa fe, equinox, forester) and this was it - the Outlander took the prize...

#8
Why are there not more?
Source: Edmunds

...It baffles me that I don't see more of these on the road.
Every time I tell someone about my new car, they've never heard of it.
But then they see it and they love it! I researched vehicles in this segment obsessively,
while I waited for the Cash for Clunkers deal to go into effect- I had been driving a '99 Jeep Cherokee for the past 7 years and when the A/C broke, it was time to go.
While I never considered myself into features (the Jeep had hardly any), I am amazed at how many features I got on the Outlander for the price.
Far better deal than any of the...

Happy customer

...The outlander has exceeded all my expectations. I chose it for the technology features like the navigation, music server, sound system, and backup camera.
None of the competitors had anything even close in its price range. Driving is smooth, quiet, yet powerful...

Quite Pleased
Source: Edmunds

...Best all around crossover/SUV I've had (priors: Jeep Cherokee, Mazda Tribute, Hyundai SantaFe).
Poor low end torque & city gas mileage. Good highway gas mileage; outside size/interior room ratio; responsive & tight handling.
Excessive tire & wind noise on Highway. Good & plentiful electronics are intuitive and well thought out; steep learning curve to use efficiently.
Same for 2nd & 3rd row seat positioners. Hard to see instruments & Nav in bright sunlight.
Lots of front glove box/misc & rear storage space.
Great warranty; no problems in 8 mos of ownership. Used...

2009 Subaru Forester
It’s significantly improved this year, but the 2009 Subaru Forester remains a unique all-wheel-drive crossover with less power and fewer features, but better carlike handling, than its competition.
 
2008 Honda CR-V
The 2008 Honda CR-V doesn't have hip style or performance on tap, but it has the security, utility, and frugality that many sensible moms want.
