2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE: No Mode but Sports Mode
March 09, 2011
My colleague Brent Romans said it best in this eloquent post on the necessity of paddle shifters in this crossover. I'll just second his comments here.
When I jumped into the Outlander Sport, I hadn't done any model homework and I didn't know that it has a continuously variable transmission. Now I know it does and I know I hate how it feels on acceleration. As Brent said, it's only the paddle shifters (and the pleasure of watching gear "shifts" on the display) that make the drive bearable.
