    It looked like an Australian import until I saw the plates. At least no serious injuries.

Small wagon are so practical & useful!

    If a person doesn't really need AWD, the 5-speed Outlander Sport is a great option! AWD just adds more costs, maintenance, & less fuel economy. A couple of you on this forum have gone out & bought these before they drop the manual option. I don't blame you!
    The CVT Outlander Sport felt good too. They let me test drive all the Mitsu models, including a 2015 Lancer at my dealership.

    A minor car flipped made the paper in that town? You pretty much have to cause a multicar pile up that kills 20 people before they write about it in the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Or be a homeless guy that caused a fire underneath a bridge on I85, that collapsed it. Which really happened.

    I was thinking the exact same thing as soon as I saw the picture. I'd bet a dollar (Canadian or American, your choice) that this car isn't even hers.

    I think that's Nanaimo Mitsubishi. They don't have many favorable reviews on Yelp.

    On the bright side, all you have to do is load that pic from a smartphone onto this forum and it will be right side up for your viewing pleasure lmao.

    I thought you're supposed to take corners too fast and on 2 wheels in BC? Can't fault the car or the tires. If you try hard enough you can roll anything.

    Like me! I really like mine but I miss the fuel economy of the Mirage.
    -Karl B. Had a 2019 Mirage ES 5 speed, swapped it for a 2019 Outlander Sport ES 5 speed. Now have a 2019 Mirage SE CVT as well.

    For those who tend to overlook things sometimes, read the spare tire cover! Funny in that way!

    Thankfully, it looks like the roll bar did its job!

    Then again roll bars have killed people when not wearing your seatbelt. I don't remember much from from high school, but I do remember one story by my driving instructor. He would help local law enforcement investigate accidents. He witnessed a person cut in half by a roll bar rolling over the top of their body. Wearing a seatbelt would have prevented that. I still think of that story while buckling up to this day.
