    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.
