Our trip to Grandma and Grandpa’s House.
This weekend I got to take the Mitsubishi Outlander to the Mountains and really see how it would do on the highway. I think that pick up could be better but for such a small engine overall it did really well. It does take some time to build up speed but easily does 80 mph without a problem. I also got to see how it did climbing the hills of the Northeast Georgia Mountains. The girls were happy but VERY far back from the driver seat. I put the smaller portion of the back seat down so the girls could see me and get the airconditioner but their crate was sideways in the trunk area. Yes I could have left the seat up and just had them all the way back there and the a/c would have gotten to them eventually but it was still in the upper 80′s when we got on the road. If I still had their International Travel crate I would have been able to have them behind me with the back seat down and used the children safety seat tie downs to tie down their crate. Their current crate is just too small to put down the back seats so they can be closer to me that or I needed a lot more luggage which I just didn’t need.
The Mitsubishi Outlander did surprisingly well up and down the mountain roads, All the roads I went on were paved roads even when the GPS said a road didn’t exist there I never took it off roading though there was one point we considered driving it on the Golf Course for a better picture but more on that in another post. The Mitsubishi Outlander never slipped or slide going up and down steep hills and I really put it to the test. I am not sure it would have done as well in the winter when roads become frozen but most vehicles wouldn’t be very happy on these roads in snow and ice.
Aside from the use of the vehicle and not needing to fill the gas tank up before they come and collect it I have not been compensated in any way by Mitsubishi or their PR company that handles the Press Cars for any of the posts that appear in this series. I also am under no obligation to post once a day I just figured that if I get to really expirience the vehicle and have an adventure with it you all would like to come along for the ride.
