2010 Mitsubishi Outlander GT: Air Conditioning Blows

July 23, 2010


Have you heard enough about the air conditioning in our 2010 Mitsubishi Outlander yet? Let me answer that one for you. Nope, not yet.

I drove the Outlander, with freshly installed A/C, earlier this week. Temperatures were in the 90s, so I had the dial cranked. It wasn't enough. Imagine standing in front of your freezer with the door wide open. Now back up 6 feet. That's about all you get. Not quite enough to unstick your shirt from the seatback. The climate control seemed to handle exterior temps in the 80s just fine, but it lost effectiveness shortly thereafter.

Now, on that same day under the same conditions, I also drove our A4 Avant. It handled the heat just fine. I learned my lesson. I shouldn't have traded cars.
