2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport: Just Enough
March 07, 2011
"I'll be here until 5 if you want to come back."
That's what the guy at the flea market told me as I handed him cash for the two steel carts I just bought. He didn't think I could fit them into my car. Honestly, I had the same worries, but I didn't say anything. My lady did, however.
"I don't know, Scott. I think we have to come back."
The Outlander Sport is not a big vehicle. But thankfully the 48.8 cubic feet (with the seats folded down) was just enough to stuff those two carts into the rear of the vehicle. I had about an inch to spare. Placing a spare fleece over the end was enough to protect the hatch from scratches.
I really appreciated the fact I only had to make one trip. It would have been a pain in the butt to drive across town a couple of times. Though I'm still not a fan of the CVT and weak engine, our Outlander Sport has definitely grown on me a little more this past weekend.
