2010 Mitsubishi Outlander Long Term Road Test

2010 Mitsubishi Outlander: B-Side Fan

August 02, 2010


We've already complained plenty about the Mitsubishi Outlander's air conditioning. First because it died before the Mitsu broke 1,000 miles, and second, because even after the AC compressor was replaced, it still seems unable to keep the cabin anything more than moderately cool.

Now let me add just one more complaint, this time about the fan noise.

Remember the sound a record player (they were before CDs, kiddos) makes when the needle bumps up against the paper label, alerting party-goers to flip to the B-side? The bump, followed by a slight scratch? Bump, scraaatch. Bump, scraaatch. Bump, scraaatch.
