Chap at work was looking for a reasonably priced used 4x4 to tow a boat trailer and was looking at a Mitsubishi Outlander but was stunned by the number of outstanding recalls on the vehicle which the vendor had ignored so lost interest in them.
Interest fired I had a look, 10 outstanding recalls.
A Ford of the same year for comparison
and a Nissan as well.
Sort of blows the myth of Japanese reliability out of the water, then again Renault own Nissan and Mitsubishi now.
Does anyone know of a car with more recalls than a Mitsubishi Outlander.

OK, in another - probably ill-fated - attempt to inject some much needed humour into the general miserableness of DOSBODs, I give you my big, fat, word-association thread.
Now the rules are dead simple - not that many of you fuckers will take any notice of them...!
I post a word. Next poster then responds with another word that could be associated with the first word.
Please keep it to one word answers wherever possible - unless the comic effect is greater using a short phrase, or a person's name.
And please, please, please don't make consecutive posts - i.e. let another poster respond to your latest word before chipping-in with another one.
Makes sense...? Good.
Here we go...

I'm in the market for a rucksack/day bag. Will be used to carry a laptop, few pens, paper, few coins, inhaler, penknife, bits and bobs, a phone occasionally, and the odd bit of shopping when I'm out and about. Needs to be waterproof. I'm looking more at a traditional rucksack with two shoulder straps and not a messenger bag (not good for the back).
Previously I've purchased Deuter products which I've found to be well designed, with useful pockets etc and well made. The last bag I had lasted just over 10 years but is now worn with a broken zip. Deuter are still good but are of course German. In keeping with my personal Buy British campaign to single-handedly reverse our trade deficit with the EU I am looking for a UK made replacement for my aged Deuter.
So far I've looked at:
Trakke (definitely a contender)
Aiguille - again a maybe
Millican - have some doubts about where the manufacturing is done.
I would appreciate any help and advice Dosbodders can give.
