2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE: Race Weekend
October 26, 2011
Our longterm 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE served as transportation, food service station, storage, clothesline and mobile changing room over this past weekend's 24 Hours of LeMons race at Infineon Raceway.
Though not at it's best as a mile eater -- too much road noise, tepid acceleration, sometimes choppy ride -- its alert steering and comfy seats are welcome in this class of vehicle.
One minor bummer -- where's the flip-down tailgate? I really liked that feature in the non-Sport Outlander. Good for loading, good for sitting. Ah well.
