2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE: Pretty Tied Up
February 07, 2011
Odd thing about the Outlander Sport's rear seat fold: you can't detach or move the middle seat shoulder belt out of the way. That it has a shoulder belt for the middle seat is cool; they could've cheaped out and just included a lap belt. But it does seem an oversight to not at least notch the belt loop, and offer the option of hanging the belt out of the way.
If you want to haul some stuff back there, it requires an inelegant solution:
UPDATE: I'm an idiot, I admit. As one commenter notes, the belt is detachable. Although, in my idiocy, I couldn't figure out exactly how to unlatch it. There's no button release, but there is a notch with some kind of tab. I couldn't jam my finger or thumb in there to unlatch it, couldn't press on it with a credit card, and didn't have a key, as the Sportif features a keyless ignition. Anyone else have experience with this?
