    It's a shame, but Mitsubishi has been a non-entity in the American market for a loooong time. No vision...no products....just picking up the scraps from consumers who don't know any better.

    I can't believe how well equipped the base model Civic LX are now! Rear cameras and a ton of items they sure didn't come with in the past!

    I guess if this is working for Mitsubishi than it's good thing. My BIL sure loves his Outlander and it hasn't caused him a bit of trouble at around 75,000 miles.
