Mitsubishi Outlander '08, paddle shifters are a poorly designed device for shifting gears on an automatic transmission, they are attached to the steering wheel beside the right and left turn signals and the windshield wipers. When you use the normal above two items your fingers automatically involuntarily shift the car into for instance, low gear!!! horribly dangerous device, poor engineering design, trying to "soup up" a cheap, poorly designed vehicle. The car needs to be recalled immediately!
