2010 Mitsubishi Outlander GT: Is This Thing On?

May 05, 2011

This past weekend I decided to stop giving my friends the finger and actually help them get from one place to another. On this lovely warm spring day however, it was the Outlander GT that gave my friends the finger.

After being parked in direct sunlight, the inside of the Outlander was understandably a little warm. But after piling back into the GT, we were greeted by the most indifferent air conditioning I've seen since the 80's.

After a few minutes, the comments came fast and fierce.

"Hey! How about some a/c back here *******?!"

"Hey ******, the a/c button is in the middle."

"I hate you."

The comment that summed it up best, likened the a/c to "a cool, humid fart"

I was confused. On the way to pick up these charity cases - driving on the freeway - the a/c worked fine. But in the city, and under load, it just couldn't keep up. Of course after I dropped off these meatheads - and got back on the freeway - the a/c almost froze itself solid.

Maybe the GT just didn't like my friends.
