#737 of 986 2008 XLS no options
Mar 18, 2008 (4:52 pm)
Could someone reports his/her experience in buying a 2008 Outlander XLS with
18 x 7J Aluminum Alloy (7-spoke bright finish). Usually the Outlander XLS is sold with 5-spoke wheels, however the 2008 XLS can be ordered with 7-spoke. This is at the Mitsubishi America web page.
A dealer want me to pay $24,000 for a 2008 Outlander XLS no options + taxes and documents feeds. Is this price reasonable? Any comments appreciated.

Hi batman 47,
If you are looking at a 2wd XLS w/no options at all, the MSRP(according to edmunds.com) is $23,750 and the invoice is 22,389. I hope you didn't buy it yet because you can get this vehicle for well below invoice as I have stated here before. I would offer $1,500 below invoice (22,389) and if they don't agree, go elsewhere. Whatever you do, don't be in a hurry. If they don't agree to this offer, call or email all of the dealers in your area and let them know what you will pay for that vehicle and most likely you will get one to give it to you for that price. Good luck!!!

I would offer $1,500 below whatever the invoice is on the vehicle your looking at. There are others in this forum who have been able to get that price so it is definitely worth making the offer and see what they say. Good luck!!!
#742 of 986 $29,080 offer for 2008 4WD XLS

Dealer will offer 2008 4WD XLS for $29,080, includes:
Sun & Sound Pkg
Accessory Tow Pkg
It was stated that the price I'm getting is $100 over invoice. How close is this offer to the price I should be getting? I have no trade-in and already have better financing than the dealer could offer.

That's exactly what I paid for mine a year ago. I think you can probably beat them down another $1,000 if you want to. It helps if they have a lot of inventory and/or several nearby competing dealers. I don't think there are any incentives on the 08's right now.

The amount $1,500 below invoice!
Could you please direct me to a couple of dealers where these types of transactions are a reality? Do you have first hand experience on this?
The dealer where I want to order my Outlander XLS (no options) quoted me $300 below invoice.
#745 of 986 7-spoke wheels
Mar 22, 2008 (4:46 am)
The 2008 XLS Outlander is sold in the USA with the following set of wheels (P255/55R18):
18 X 7J Aluminum Alloy
(5-spoke silver painted)
18 x 7J Aluminum Alloy
(7-spoke bright finish)
If you check your Outlander it is most probably that your vehicle was sold to you with 5-spoke wheels).
Could someone report his/her experience in buying a 2008 Outlander XLS with 7-spoke wheels? If so, where did you buy it or what did you do?
I do like the 7-spoke wheels.

How long did it take to Outlander owners to obtain their vehicle number plate? What is the minimal and maximum time to wait for a number plate? Who is the main responsible for obtaining the number plate: the owner or the dealership? How can I obtain the number plate at the same day or second day after I finalize the deal? Help appreciated!
