2019 Mitsubishi Outlander cutout

Want to know everything there is to know about this car?

In their own words

Got this car on 4 year lease thinking the hybrid would save money in running costs. Worst decision I've made bit can't justify the £4400 to get out of the lease. The car drives fine and is great in the snow and is comfortable. Electric range is dreadful even with freewheeling and regeneration downhill I get 17 -20 miles in winter and a top limit of 24 in summer & petrol mpg poor. Drive a long-ish country road journey and compared to petrol it can be good though, with journey average of between 78-84mpg +battery usage. Front windscreen in winter is iced up on inside which leaves water running down it when it melts. Some mornings have had a hair drier on an extension lead pointed at the inside of the window to clear. Windows constantly mist up and you end up running the petrol engine to clear the windows in winter, in which case the car costs more to run than my previous 2.2 diesel auto. The carpet in the driver's foot well on the transmission tunnel has worn away after about 12000 miles and it can be seen to fluff up with light vacuuming,thank god I have mats otherwise God knows how bad the interior would be. The boot lid is scratching the paintwork on the top of the bumper. All of this has been reported but I've been told there is nothing wrong with it. Not impressed at all.

How reliable do you find the car?

Car has never broken down or failed to start, BUT it has had other problems that don't stop it being reliable but more in terms of quality.
