2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Review: Final Thoughts
Despite plenty of technology and its sporty looks, the 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is overshadowed by its outdated powertrain. In just its second year on the market, Mitsubishi says that its Outlander Sport has received updates to reduce NVH and improve the CVT, but these two areas continue to be the biggest downfalls of this stylish compact crossover. Buyers smitten with the aggressive Mitsubishi face might want to stick with the base manual transmission to make this car more exciting, but aside from one of the worst CVTs on the market, the Outlander Sport does bring plenty of value to the table. Of course, this all depends on if you can actually find a Mitsubishi dealership in the first place with the company only estimating its American dealer network at around 400 dealers.
