The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a tried and true option for those shopping for a crossover. Crafted with elegant design and filled with cool features, the Outlander Sport has always offered a lot of bang to the buck. Early this February, this crossover was made even more appealing by the debut of the new 2017 Outlander Sport Limited Edition—LE for short. The Outlander Sport LE was revealed at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show and stays true to the Mitsubishi standards by offering lots of value for an affordable price tag.
The 2017 Outlander Sport LE is the second highest trim level, following the base model. This sophisticated crossover will turn heads with its modern design. An alloy fuel door matches the 18-inch alloy wheels. The alloy touches are complemented by black painted door mirrors, plus notable lighting like HID headlamps and fog lamps.
The inside of the Outlander Sport LE has its own stylish touches. Red stitching on the steering wheel, brake lever and shift knob plus aluminum pedals make the roomy interior pop. There’s extra comfort in the heated seats. Handy technology includes a rearview camera plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for advanced smartphone integration during every drive. The 2017 Outlander Sport LE offers all of this, plus the same reliable performance to be expected in a Mitsubishi, making it an irresistible choice.
Whether your car is brand new or you’ve had it for years, there will come a day when you pull into the gas station and realize you’ve completely forgotten which side your gas tank is on. Instead of pulling up and hoping you’ve got the right side, getting out, and having to get back in and do the whole thing over again, use this handy method for determining where your gas cap is.
It’s tempting to try to peer into your side mirrors and hope you can catch a glimpse of the outline of the little gas cap door, but you can actually figure it out just by looking at your dashboard.
You know that seemingly pointless little arrow on the side of the gas tank icon on your dashboard? It points to the side your gas cap is on. Some older cars don’t have the arrow, but in many cases even in the arrow’s absence the gas cap side will correspond with the side the hose in the icon is on. Who knew? Tell us at Don Robinson Mitsubishi if you knew about this handy little trick for finding your gas cap! I bet this lady wished she knew this nifty trick!
