If you ask me, you can skip the acc protection pack and the cargo cover if that will help you with keeping the price down. The 6-disc cd/mp3 unit should come standard, so them charge you extra for that. I don't have scuff plates on and I don't have deep scratches on the paint work. It helps with the looks but on you can still skip it, until you have kids, or careless adult that happily rub their shoes on your paintwork. For the cargo hatch, I always lower the bottom part, so the use of a scuff plate is almost only for show if I had one. If you plan to do some off-roading or it snow real bad in your area, you might want to consider putting on long mud flaps, especially on the front wheels. See my post here: rcpax, "New Mitsubishi Outlander Owners Give us your report" #493, 4 Mar 2008 9:18 am on how I fitted 10$ flaps on my Outlander, which works excellent, and you can actually skip getting a 3rd party running board.
Listed invoice price should be a workable goal. If your not picky with colors and willing to take what the dealer have in the lot then you should have an upper hand in bargaining for your price.
Good luck with your purchase and hopefully you get the price you are happy with. Just remember that there is no set exact price for this vehicle and purchase price will vary in different areas. As long as you're happy with the price, then go for it. Although it never hurts to ask here.

Thank you for sharing your story. I'm planning join the family and get a loaded XLS 4WD. I believe it is the same exact model that you got. I read all you previous posts and think you got a great deal. I visited few nearby dealership and didn't get close to $24,200 offers. I'm going to get the 2007 from South Coast like you this weekend. But when I call, the fleet manager quoted me $26,300. So I was wondering if you can kindly give me some details of your deal. Like the interest rate you payment, down payment amount...etc. You can email to me rick.huang at hotmail
I really appreciate your help. Thank you.

I just called South Coast just minutes ago. I mentioned the price you paid and the fleet manager insisted to know your name before locking in the price for me. Is it okay for you to let me know your name? You can email to me rick.huang at hotmail
Thanks a lot brother.

Debating on purchasing a 07 Outlander LS for my wife.(Car was a Demo and has about 8600 miles on it)
The only added option on this car is the Bluetooth option.
The price after two days of negotiating has come down to 15900.
Do you feel that is a good price?

Sounds like an excellent deal to me. I looked it up on Edmunds and your price is over $1000 below trade-in value so if it is in great condition I would go for it. Good luck!!!

I drove home the Diamond White loaded (S&S, Navi, Deluxe) 07 4WD XLS for $25,200 plus T&L today! Special thanks to avalanchez66's prompt response. Without his help, I probably won't end up getting this good deal. Before signing the paper, my girl friend mentioned the $500 recent grad discount, and the fleet manager said she's qualified, so we ended up paying $24,700 We didn't finance. As mentioned before, the service department is not profesional in that dealership, they didn't fill up my windsheid fluid. The transaction is fast. From arrive to drove off, less than 3 hours. The fleet manager was not the nicest, but he did go straight forward. I definately think you can get a better deal than I do if you go for the remain two same models on the lot. However, I checked out the one with Aqua color, it seems like its rear passenger side window had problems. Be aware of that. Went to Glendale Mitsu prior South Coast, the fleet manager sat down with me for only 5 mins then he laugh at my offer and left. Then the GM came out and tried to make it up with real numbers, however, stiff on his offerings. They even took my ID and forgot to gave it back to me. But I glad today that I made the same offer and got accepted. I am very happy and satisfied for the car and the price.

Check KBB. The trade-in value is $14,625, private party is $17,455. Sounds like a fair price but of course the question is always, can they do better?

Welcome to the Outlander family!!! Glad I could help but sorry you didn't get the same Internet manager. That's great you got the education rebate also.
