2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport: Seat Belt Chime

October 07, 2011

See that red fasten seatbelt light on the dash of our 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport? It is driving me nuts. Actually, the light itself I can live with. The associated chime is the problem...

Now don't get me wrong, I understand the importance of the chime. And I can promise you that if the car is moving, my seatbelt is always buckled. But why does this chime persist when I'm parked? Can't I just sit here, listen to the radio and choke down this egg McMuffin in peace while I wait for the auto parts store to open? Not unless my seatbelt is on. Frustrating.

The passenger warning isn't perfect either. It will activate with just the weight of my backpack on the seat. But I can forgive that because there is no chime accompanying it. The light will flash for hours on end if I let it. I really wish the driver's warning was the same.
