My experience with the Endeavors - the dealers really want to move these off their lot. I negotiated my 2007 back in April for $27000. $4000 manuf rebate + $500 student discount and my price was $22500 + ttl. From what I hear - all SUV dealers are offering great deals for 2007's now.
#75 of 83 2007 Used Endeavours Cheap in Canada
Jan 02, 2008 (3:09 pm)
We're interested in a buying an Endeavor or Outlander but we're noticing some weird things with the pricing. In Canada, the list price for a new 2007 base Endeavour (taken from Mitsubishi Canada's website) starts at $35,998. New 2007 Outlander starts at $25,498.
But when we look at autotrader.ca for all used 2007 Endeavors and Outlanders in BC the prices look odd. Used 2007 Endeavors with about 20,000 km are priced in the $25k - $28k range. Yet so are the used 2007 Outlanders. Any idea why the used Endeavors are so cheap? Is there some problem with them?
I heard a rumour that there are a bunch of used Toyota Highlanders floating around the used market and the reason they're cheap is because they've been used in the Alberta tar sands and have been driven VERY hard.
Any insight would be appreciated.

Was at my MA dealer getting minor service, salesman quoted me $22,500 on eiher of two new 2007 Endeavors in stock, probably base models with few options. After haggling, maybe $20K or $21K? Seem like a great bargain.
BTW, my loaded 2004 4WD top of the line Endeavorl has been a great vehicle. Now with 52K miles, only significant problem has been a whistling driveshaft repaired under warranty. This time in the exhaust heat shield was rattling, only the second problem, and fixed for $45. Recently, one set of brakes, one set of new Bridgestones, new floor mats. So amazing reliability. Our 2004 Toyota Sienna, comparably equipped top-of-line, has been in the shop repeatedly. Recently has broken seat heater element ($900 to fix!), broken rear window shade ($400 to fix!), howling run-flat tires ($1100 to replace for 15K life expectancy before they become too noisy to tolerate!), dislodged electric mirror control (the only cheap repair). A typical year's worth of bugaboos, but is now ex-warranty. Reminds me a bit of my old Mercedes S-class -- $2000 every six months to keep running.
Versus the 4WD Sienna, Endeavor rides better, handles much better, has more punch, is more reliable, has a better transmission (Sienna gets confused downshifting sometimes and lurches hard), better cruise control, better stereo, and is considerably more roomy in both seat rows (and is much roomier and more comfortable than all other SUVs except maybe big Fords which it matches). Only places it loses vs. Sienna are harder interior plastics and less refied V6. With the Sienna as second car, we have never needed the third row seat.
So Endeavor has been a geat value!

Can you give more detail on the whistling driveshaft issue? Did it affect the shifting at all?

Hello to All,
I test drove a used 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor yesterday and I loved it, however after reading everyone's comments I'm thinking this is not the best choice. I have read about gas mileage, the best tires, various problems, and the article that says Mitsubishi will go under. Nevertheless, I'm still interested. What should I do?

I have a quote from a MA dealer of $20,000 for a 2007 Endeavor with AWD, they are desperate to get these off the lot and are not even ordering any 09's until the gas prices drop.
I am considering a better offer of $15,000 (with my 04 Endeavor trade in) for an 08 Endeavor AWD SE with all the options.
If you look hard and find a desperate dealer you can practically steal these cars!

How much are they giving you for the 04 or what is the bottom line on just the cost of the 08? I am shopping for an AWD 08 either a LS or SE which ever has the deepest discount. Which incentive did you take the 4000 or the 0% for 72 mos?

Stay away from these guys and avoid their unethical practices.
The sales reps are nice, but the finance manager and President will try to sneak things in on your loan and do whatever they can to cheat you out of a dollar. I caught them in the act, and simply walked away from the deal. DISGUSTING EXPERIENCE
