2007 or 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander?
First, is the build-quality improved any on the 2008s over the '07s? The main issue people seem to be having is bits rattling or falling off. Which, given that I like to keep my cars a long time (the Miata is over 10 years old) doesn't inspire long term confidence.
Second, the local dealership has one '07 LS model still on the lot. It's slathered up with the Entertainment (DVD) option and the Sun and Sound option and maybe one or two other things as well for an MSRP north of $26k which they have discounted to $20.5k or something like that. I don't care a great deal about the options, though the DVD system is likely to be useful in a few years, (It seems like you need headphones to listen to it, right? Or does it use the regular sound system?) and I don't much care for the bright red color, but the price isn't bad. Does that seem worthwhile or are the '08s bolted together well enough that they're noticeably preferable to the '07?
