2010 Mitsubishi Outlander GT: Magnesium Paddles

December 14, 2010

Last month I wrote that I didn't like the plasticky feeling of the paddle shifters in our long-term 2009 Audi A4 wagon. One reader commented that you can only get metal paddles in high-end rides like the Benz SLR. Well to all of you from Missouri (the Show Me state), I present our $33K long-term 2010 Mitsubishi Outlander GT, with magnesium alloy paddles. And they're standard on the GT, XLS and SE trim levels.

These column-mounted paddles look great, and the actuation even has a bit of a mechanical feeling. They also remind me of the paddles on our dearly departed Nissan GT-R (which I keep wishing for at Christmas time, but surprisingly have yet to receive).
