    dodo2 can you tell me what the invoice price was for your LS?
    I am just getting my facts together so that I can go and whittle a deal here in B.C. I am hoping to buy an LS with the convenience package. The msrp is $29,530 CDN or so.
    I hate dealing with car dealers, it will be good to be well armed when I do go in.
    I have never owned a new vehicle before so I am pretty pumped. :) :)

    I am in the same boat, I have been waiting for 3 months. Is the demand really that high the Mitsu cant keep up?

    Probably so. Sales have gone up for Mitsubishi, 19.6% for January to April, 2007. Canadian sales for April 2007 is 91.1% compared to the same period in 2006 due to strong demand for the new Outlander. Things are really looking bright for the company.

    This is another thing that has been worrying me about buying an Outlander, is that the company won't be around for a really long time. I intend to keep the car till it rusts into the ground. I have looked at the others al well but I like the Outlander the most. Sounds like they are doing much better.

    By buying the Outlander, you will help the company stay in business and will definitely help us current Mitsubishi vehicle owners by getting warranty repairs if needed. But this has not happened in our case. Our 2003 Outlander has exceeded our expectations by being worry-free throughout the time since we bought it. The same is true for our 2004 Galant. It has been years since they have predicted that this car company would cease operations here but slowly and surely Mitsubishi has disappointed the doomsayers. So if you really like the new Outlander, you might as well buy it. From what i have been reading in this forums, most owners have been enjoying their rides!

    Btw for the Destination Charge 1345 1345 is that include PDI? coz i saw other brand (mazda, toyota, nissan) the pdi goes with freght and is around 1300~1400, but when i try to buy outlander from dealer they charge 1345 freght + 395 PDI and some dealer even chare 595 on top of the freght. Does this extra on pdi are rip off from dealer or it is supose to charge separely?

    Looking at a LS 4wd with the Sun and Sound pkg. in pearl white. 25,200 plus tax and license. They are also offering a generous trade for our old van. We are trying to decide now between the Mitsu or a Ford Edge.

    The PDI is the dealer rip off. It's easy to take it off, at least I did it no problem. Indeed, other brands charge Freight+PDI, but it's usually slightly higher and I would say less negotiable (Santa Fe - $1,595, RAV4-$1,390, CRV-$1,505) .

    I imagine you gonna get beige lether interior over blck. What attracts you in Edge?
  • toomanyfumestoomanyfumes S.E. Wisconsin Posts: 894
    Truthfully my wife likes the Edge better. Exterior styling, (Looks much better in person than in pictures) and the interior feels roomier and more open. I'm leaning toward the Outlander. For less money it has AWD, 650 watt stereo, better stying (to me) and more features than the SE Edge we looked at. Plus the dealer can find a Pearl White wih the sun and sound. Has the sunroof and color she wants. Gonna talk to the dealer again today. Still trying to squeeze a little more out of the trade.

    Anaheim Mitsubishi tries to tack on about $800-3500 extra profit. What a joke. No wonder there are always a ton on the lot and none on the road here.
  • toomanyfumestoomanyfumes S.E. Wisconsin Posts: 894
    Signed the papers this morning. Pick it up Tuesday. They gave us an Endeavor to drive untill it arrives.( It's actually at another dealer 150 miles away.) Can't wait!
  • chelentanochelentano Posts: 634
    You forgot to mention: much better warranty, free roadside assistance for 5 y., made entirely in Japan! And yes, AWD would add more safety.

    Congrats!

    In OC you can search craigslist for "2007 Outlander" and you will usually find great internet pricing from South Coast Mitsubishi. $27999 for an XLS 4WD, sun & sound, Nav, leather. You have to bring the ad into the dealer to get that price.
  • toomanyfumestoomanyfumes S.E. Wisconsin Posts: 894
    I've seen a few posts here about them being marked up or hard to find. Looking around at the dealers here (Milwaukee area), they seem to be plentiful and could find us whatever we wanted. They had a long row of them sitting on the lot, also. There's no way i'd pay ADM or list,even. Too much competition out there.

    Hey everyone i am a first time buyer of an automobile. I have helped friends and family buy cars, but this is the first time i am buying one for myself. I am looking to get a fully loaded XLS 4wd outlander minus the rear seat entertainment probably in black or graphite grey.
    Now i read the entire thread on people's buying experience and saw that people were getting 500 under invoice and heck a few got it for 26,990 for a fully loaded XLS. That's 1500 under invoice!!How did u guys do it?
    i know you send for quotes with all the nearby dealership, but do u start negotiating from their quotes or do you plop down a price (say 27,000) and tell them to start from there. How do u get them in a bidding war? do u need like on paper proof of an other dealers price to get the dealership ur at to budge? Does it really count to wait to the end of the month to get a deal? What prices did dealerships initialy throw at you and what prices did u start to negotiate for?

    Any help would be great guys as i was looking to spend 27,500 for a full loaded xls before taxes and stuff.

    Search your local craigslist, my local dealer has offers for $500 under invoice if you print the post and bring it in.
  • chelentanochelentano Posts: 634
    Make sure 27,000 it's a price people paid without discount, cose sometimes "customer loyalty" discount, or "1st year college student" discount also applied for some people. But I'd say $27,500 is a realistic price.

    Call and tell them, that a person you know (in another town) paid $27,000 and ask, if they can sell you for this price. If necessary, let them know that you are aware of dealer incentives as a reason people buy Outlander below invoice. If you feel the dealer is flexible in price, negotiate to the acceptable price. If not, call another dealer. But even if you offered say 27.5K, before you go to dealership, call all other dealers and ask, if they can do better.

    Pls let us know, the results
