2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE: Service Reminder
January 27, 2011
Our longterm 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport blinked up this reminder on the multimedia display for about four seconds upon startup. Caught it out of the corner of my eye. If you're not paying attention to the screen, you could easily miss it.
With that prompt, I dug a bit deeper in search of specifics.
It's 2011, so rather than consulting some arcane wood-pulp tome in the "glove compartment" -- seriously, who puts gloves in here? -- I pushed the Info button to the right of the central display. This brought up on the touchscreen, among a few other categories, the Maintenance display. Easy peasy.
Looks like we're due for an oil change this time around, but the filter can wait. You know, if we really wanted to. But why bother going back in 3,268 miles just to do the filter when we can simply change both the oil and filter together in one fell swoop?
