Mitsi outlander 2.4 or 3l!

Just bought a 2006 2.4 Outlander XLS for the wife. She seems happy with it and it's growing on me a bit despite being nothing like the kind of vehicle I would buy for myself. I actually quite like the CVT and it has a tiptronic option which gives you 6 "gears". Had a play with it on manual and its not bad. At some RPMs the engine is a bit drony but it seems peppy enough and so far fuel economy seem good.

Oh, and Mitsi specify 91 octane fuel but the local dealer says they will give a little more power and torque and slightly better economy on 95. Must give some 95 a try at some stage. Previous owner said she always ran on 91.

This is the next vehicle we are purchasing but we are undecided about 1 2.4 or 3l. Does anybody have one and can comment on power - ie is 2.4 enough for the average family who wants to tow a trailer occasionally to go camping but other wise is just the family car!

driving 2.4 vrx at the moment,very happy plenty of power for us.3.0 is smooth and quiet but a bit hungrier on gas. Service both models through work and have several with close to 200000k and no problems. 3.0 is cambelt and 2.4 chain drive

thank you for your post. was a bit worried 2.4 not powerful enough but sounds like will be fine. would love a vrx - hoping to get one 07 with as little k's as poss. budget $30k. Do you reckon this is doable!
