    What is the invoice price for this trim? Most of us paid 500-2000 below invoice, for various trims. I think you should hit few more dealers and see how low they will go. Regardless, it is great value and great CUV. As far as engine choice, I don't think there is a lot better fuel economy with 4 cyl, vs. V6. I'm getting 21-23 MPG in suburbian driving, and up to 26 MPG highway. You may get 2 MPG more with lesser engine
    There is no complains with 6 cyl power, towing capacity or 6 speed auto transmission.
    It is up to you if it is worth extra. By the way, I paid 22.5K for V6 XLS AWD with protection and appearance pkg. (MSRP over 26K). Good luck.

    $1000 below invoice is the OTD price or before tax and fees? I'm looking at a 08' 4WD SE. The invoice price from edmunds is $23971.00. The price I got from dealer is $23774.00 out-of-door before the $1000.00 rebate. Is it a fare price? I'm in Maryland.

    Took a first look at the '08 SE Outlander, 4WD, 4cly, w/nav. Bottom price not including destination, doc fee's or taxes was $25,900. Additional, doc fee's are $300 including inspection sticker & 6 oil changes. Anybody deal a better price?

    I've also been interested in the CR-V EX-L w/nav. I'm sorry I looked at the Outlander, now I am not so sure on the Honda.

    Thanks,

    Consumer Reports loves the Outlander. I never heard of them before the BF bought one. He's thrilled with his. It's fun to drive, handles very well and we took it camping (bought the add on hitch package). Gas mileage is good too. I think the 900 cupholders are a bit extreme ;) but overall it's a nice choice.

    900 = 37.5 cases...

    sounds about right.. :)

  • Picking up the '08 Outlander next week. Found the color & price point I was looking for.

    Glad this hassel is over with.
  • D'Ambrosio Mitsubishi-Suzuki
    Exton, PA
    Delivery date: 8/19/08

    '08 ES black with convenience package and protection package plus sunroof and DVD player installed by the dealer before we saw the car -- these were not important features to us but now that we have them we like them. The protection package was not factory-installed but rather installed by the dealer at my request. This was the last '08 ES they had.

    Traded '98 Dodge Grand Caravan SE with 117K miles, which had been purchased new from D'Ambrosio's Dodge store on the same site.

    MSRP $25,790 including $2595 for the sunroof and DVD. We paid $22,140 or $22 over invoice excluding the sunroof and DVD. They originally offered $1500 for our trade but upped it to $2600. That's what ultimately swayed us. We put $2750 down and financed $18,146, 60 mos.x $325 @ 2.9% (Mitsubishi incentive) including title, tax, and tags.

    On the car they started $1150 higher than their eventual selling price. They tried the typical tactic of negotiating based on the monthly payment. When all was said and done we felt like we got the sunroof and DVD for free.

    In the excitement we forgot to bring our checkbook. They were nice enough to let us put the down payment on our credit card.

    Congrats on your new car!!! As to them being "nice" to allow you to to pay by credit card: Of course they would!! (It's cash to them and you could buy the whole vehicle on a credit card if your credit line allowed it). Last few vehicles I bought I've done the same for a down payment. Remember, you are the buyer and should be in control (they should bend over backwards to make the sale and if they implied they were doing you a favor by "allowing" a credit card I would have laughed in their face)
  • I was in control, and I agree with your points.

    Didn't the dealer incur 1-2% in card merchant fees on the down payment? No I don't feel sorry for them. The sales manager had to approve the payment by credit card, but I never felt like there was any question they would allow it.
  • My brakes just started squeeking a few days ago. I'm told that this is the first sign of trouble, yet the service center says that the rotors need to be cut. I'm not a car guy but this seems suspicious.
  • How many miles are on the vehicle? Do you drive hard?
    In normal driving your brakes should last 50K or more if you don't live in the city..City driving, 35K or so..

    Bad brake pad warning noise is usually a squeal...
    Rotors don't need to be turned unless you are getting modulation in the brake pedal...If the pedal is`getting alot of vibration then the rotors need to be machined...Alot of downhill mountain driving or "riding the brake" will warp the rotors...

    I'm actually looking for the 2008 4WD XLS fully loaded (nav, lux & sun & sound), but I don't think they're available in SoCal anymore. I found 2 dealers that has the used 2008 4WD XLS loaded, but I learned that they're not certified and looks like the powertrain warranty is cut in half, so I'm not sure I want to go for it. So I might have to settle for the 2WD. I got a quote for $27.6K OTD w/ 0% APR if qualified, what do you guys think?
  • Hi,

    I am a Toyota owner looking for a change. I was hoping Mitsubishi may be the one but I am not having luck with the dealers. I emailed 8 dealers (starting over 1 month ago) for pricing but only received a response from 2. Of the 2, one wants me to come in for the special "internet" pricing and the other has quoted me $500 below invoice on any 2008 or 2009... would $500 below invoice be too high on a 2008? I see a ton of 2008 xls models available at various dealers... should I wait it out for a better discount?

    Thanks so much for your time
  • Where are you located? Here in NJ you can drive away with a 2008 Outlander at $3500-4500 below MSRP without much problem. My local dealer already offers 2009 Outlanders below invoice price.One thing about Mitsubishi dealers is that they are internet challenged, best bet would be to go to a dealership physically and just talk to the manager and I am more than sure you'll be able to go few grand below invoice especially when paying cash. Mitsubishi is also currently offering 0% interest for 72 months on 2008 Outlanders for well qualified buyers.
  • I am in New Jersey and would be financing this one. Still have not done a test drive, I am trying to get a more reasonable price first.

    I will try and haggle more with the dealer that offered $500 under invoice and see what I can get now that I have a price point. Thanks for the info, it helps give me more guts to haggle and know I can get it.

    Wondering if I should wait it out and see if the prices will go lower... but I am not sure if they will do the 0% financing in November.
  • I don't think forum rules allow to mention actual dealer names but I think I can mention the cities :P Try dealerships in Rahway or Sayreville, talk directly to managers, pit dealerships against each other. Reality is that with current car market where sales are down big time and given you got the cash and/or good credit history, there are excellent deals waiting around every corner especially on larger cars such as Outlander. Just be patient, don't show them that you really really want this or that car. Just show some interest but be neutral. And as far as 0% financing is concerned, its directly provided by Mitsubishi Credit so this financing will be offered for as long as the dealerships will have 2008 Outlanders on their lots. If anything, they will probably also increase the rebates next month. Outlanders are not selling well for Mitsubishi mostly due to lack of marketing and a high demand for little/fuel efficient cars.

    But if you are in a market for a CUV, in my opinion Outlander is probably one of the best kept secrets (definitely not any worse than Rav4 or CRV) and with current financing offers it just got even better.

    I just came out of an '05 Endeavor lease w/6 months remaining on a 48 mo lease . No problems in 56,000 miles. Just leased an '09 Outie XLS 6 cyl., AWD (standard equipment) plus protection pkg. Miss the big one but really like the Outlander. Problem that the dealer and Mitsubishi have not addressed or have an answer: The '09 XLS has the extra chrome strip along the bottom of the door, and it looks great. But the mud guards don't fit in the front with that strip attached Not a big deal, but it was part of the pkg. and I'd like to have them. Got the best lease deal out of my home state, (NY). Anyone have an answer?

    Bought today. 2008 es 18000 out the door. To be honest I test drove the Honda CRV and felt it handled better but it would have cost 4000 bucks more.
  • Does the 18000 includes TTL fees? And any options are added to the ES like the Convenience package or others... what's the MSRP on the window sticker?

    Where is the one you got it from? Pleas give us more details... Thanks!
  • Base es model.OUT THE DOOR- paid 18,000----- Plus i'm getting back 500 bucks from Sam's club. So in effect 17,500 for the base ES. Bought it in Bradenton Florida.Firkins. So far I'm satisfied with the base model. I just had all the windows tinted. Cost about 180.00.
  • 71alfa71alfa Posts: 19
    Problem resolved. They finally figured out the correct part number. It seems the '08 SE had that chrome piece (air dam) along the bottom of the doors and I guess that's the front mud guard that fits. Maywood Mitsubishi was very accommodating.
  • I leased a 2008 LSX with NAVI, but without Sun/Sound/Leather

    0 down, ~$390 per month before tax, 60 months, 12K miles per year

    I printed and brought the $500 Sam's Club form with me, but they told me that they could not apply it with the rebates they were already giving me (it is actually printed on the form that it could not be applied with other rebates)
  • Did you really lease it for 5 years? At that payment and 0% you should own the vehicle after 5 years.
  • couldn't get 0%
  • 71alfa71alfa Posts: 19
    Just for comparison... I shopped 4 dealers and got the XLS only w/protection pkg. Nothing upfront..(only 1st payment and DMV.). $360 48 months 15K a year.
  • pretty good

    Is that $360 plus tax?
  • 71alfa71alfa Posts: 19
    pretty good

    Tax included... Maywood Mitsubishi in NJ No BS.. I live on Long Island and they were best by far. By the way, it's an '09. I had an '05 Endeavor coming off lease.
  • They must have given you a really good interest rate on your lease.
  • 71alfa71alfa Posts: 19
    Correction... it's $365 mo. My '05 Endeavor was $360. sorry for the error. Still got a great deal when my local dealer wanted $385 and that was pushing it.
