{Review} Road Trippin’ in the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander GT S-AWC #DriveShop #DriveMitsubishi

Disclaimer: Thanks to Drive Shop and Mitsubishi, I was given the opportunity to test drive the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander for seven days. All opinions are 100% my own. Every time I get a vehicle loaned from Drive Shop, I make it a point to go somewhere miles away so that I can get a good feel for the way the vehicle drives and handles on the road.

When Friends Help
