The Mitsubishi has caught my eye.  I was originally looking at the Chrysler Pacifica plug in but that space in our driveway has been taken by a 2015 Sedona SXL just this year.  Our 2013 Cmax has been with us for three years now the only thing I've had to spend money on apart from oil changes and tires has been a new 12v battery and a wallet (I mean transmission) flush.  The only problem I'm having now is a "drone" noise when the engine is running.  With 70K miles on the clock, I highly doubt the known TSB on this will be covered under warranty.  My fix is to turn up the radio.  The Outlander would have to be bought used (and they're few and far between on cars.com) because I wouldn't qualify for the tax credit.  I like the outlander because I have gotten caught out a few times with the small trunk on the energi.  I'm torn between thinking what I would get for the Ford and if I should just drive on until something expensive goes wrong.


What's the general opinion on the Outlander here?  It's a good looking SUV and the GT version is quite well equipped.

I like the Outlander.  You'll gain AWD and lose some MPG.


And from what I've seen on cars.com I'd guess you'll get maybe $5K for your C-Max and spend at least $25K for the Outlander.

Substantial MPG loss, but if you've mostly been staying within the AER of the C-Max you won't really notice. Mitsubishi appears to give you the whole tax credit and more when calculation a lease on the Outlander PHEV, so consider that path as well.
