Mitsubishi published this:

which selected the most favourable quotes from what seems to be a genuine article from a PHEV Outlander owner and it does give the link to the owners full blog.

landrover discovery, You (discover) you spend more time fixing silly problem than enjoying the innovative design.

It was almost comical watching the owner experiance play out over time when friend of our purchased a disco new the same year we purchased our 4wd Isuzu ute new. Lets just say the isusu was used a lot to drop him off and pick him up again when one day wasn't enough to sort issues out at the service centre Image Nice machine when it worked though.

I think the outlander being 4wd is just nice for the extra traction in bad weather, unsealed roads or a bit of soft sand. I dont think it would be on the top of your list as a serious 4wd.

How would it go with a deep water crossing. Image

I think the V8 is more reliable? But I bloke I worked with replaced a lot on a fairly new diesel.

Diff's, gearboxes...

Not good for a near new car

I notice the outlander PHEV has a bit less ground clearance than the ICE version. Anyone know the reason for less clearance? Is it just slight differences in wheel size or shocks which could easily be converted if you wanted a little more?

It did pretty well in the australian safari, 2nd outright on the final stage, and won its class overall. They did have some mods on that one, can't remember what other than better bash plates.

It does too, I can't remember where I got it from, possibly a review. I can find one now that claims the battery reduces the clearance a little.
Or maybe I was comparing it to older outlanders that had 215mm.

Cars guide, before the car was released.

Another review in the UK says same as the diesel, 190.

I think the Outlander is one of the best value plug hybrids and the most practical package to live with. At that price for a new car it's competitive to other makes like (Honda) ICE only SUV.

Wow good price was that for a 2014 or 2015 compliance?

At $45k for the Aspire I could be swayed..... :-)

Don't forget to get the $1k cashback if you purchased in March :

http://www.mitsubishi-motors.com.au/PHEV-REDEMPTION

PS I just picked up my PHEV Aspire compliance 3/15 (built 2014) brand new (not demo) with towbar and roofbars included, $44k on road. Plain white. (Took a lot of ringing around to find a dealer willing to do that deal.)

It was built 3/14 compliance 3/15. That's the newest available in Aust at the moment, you could other colours for built 6/14. $45K on road.

It is brand new, not demo. It included a free 10amp charger along with the 15amp one.

I got tinting and a towbar for extra, but about the same price I'd pay externally.

xxcoopej - that is a great price! I'm in awe and jealous at the same time. My deal was a great deal, I'm happy with 10k off the RRP. I love negotiating, it's fun. I figure I have nothing to lose.

I'm not sure I can get the cashback, I'll check it out, my contract states it excludes any other deals or offers.

Interesting the T&C state you can't take the $1k off the purchase price, however I'm also doubtful we'll get it with the discounting already achieved.

I took my 1 day old PHEV 1000km today to QLD, and figured the last place it would get to see a powerpoint was my home the night before. We pulled into the Macadamia place near Byron and I noticed the fancy 45kw solar roof on the carpark. Still totally missed the FREE EV chargepoints (2) at the rear until we sat down for a coffee. 1/2 hr later I'd got 1.55kWh and we were on our way. The lady said I was the first she'd helped use it!

PHEV was a dream to drive, however I concur with others that the settings resetting each time you start the car is a PITA!

Avg 7.2 l/100k for the 1000km trip

Well done!

Hope you enjoy it as much as we've enjoyed ours. Just paid for the second year's registration (ie one year from new) and it's been the best vehicle we've ever owned - in nearly 40 years for me.

What is the brand of the free 10 amp charger?
Is the 15 amp charger really a 15 amp charger?
Or a 10 amp charger with a 15 amp plug on the end of it?

that's good it means there is a ~3kW charger on the outlander so 15amps maximum.

My car dealer just suggested I get the $1k rebate so its definitely available even with our great prices, infact the $1k rebate was just extended for all of April too.

I only took a pic of the Cargepoint screen, 1.566kwh in 28 minutes. I assume the chargepoint website would have more details of the connector.
The manual states charger as 3.6kVA, someone copied that page on this forum - http://www.myoutlanderphev.com/forum/vi ... f=12&t=459

I didn't think the PHEV "no spare wheel" would be an issue with over 25 years without a flat tyre under my belt. D'oh, 1500km in and I manage to get a screw in the passenger side rear, grrr! Going to try roadside assistance so I don't need to fill the tyre with goo. In hindsight I should have tried to remove the screw at a tyre repair shop and not where we are staying on holidays as it had been imbedded for a couple of days and I just wanted to make sure it didn't deflate on the journey home.
