Those of you claiming offers of $1500 under invoice on a 2008 XLS must be getting it taken on the back-end with your trade-ins or financing. I've pretty much determined that I'm the only one shopping for an Outlander in my region since all 20 something of the dealerships I've contacted have not moved any inventory since I started looking 4 weeks ago. The best deal I've been offered is $1200 under invoice with the $1500 rebate from Mitsubishi and I'm a little skeptical of this offer since there is no $1500 rebate on 2008 Outlanders. Other than this pretend offer, all others are offering between invoice and $300 over, and not budging. I guess that's why I have yet to see a single Outlander on the road. With all the incentives being offered by other manufacturers, I'm about ready to walk away from these overpriced wagons.

Maybe it depends on the region your in. Where are you located? I know out here in SoCal that these are legitimate deals. I had no trade-in and did not finance with the dealer so it was a cash deal as far as that was concerned. Almost every dealer I contacted in SoCal gave me below invoice pricing when first contacted. I just went back and forth until I got the $1500 below invoice.
I looked for over a month and I saw the same thing. The same vehicles were just sitting on the lots. That is why they will eventually come down. You will find a dealer that will take the offer. I can tell you this. I looked at the competition(Honda CRV, Toyota RAV4) and they don't even compare to the Outie. This vehicle has so much more for the price. I like the fact that you don't see many of them because it makes it stand out that much more. These vehicles are awesome. The V6 alone drew my attention.
Be patient and go out and get your great deal!!!

Nope, the deals are legit. My $1,200 below invoice was also a straight up cash deal like avalanchez66's with no trade in and no financing.
In SoCal the dealers are routinely pricing the 2008s below invoice and they know that these vehicles move slowly, that is until they hit the road =)

Hi, I went to All-Star at S. Amboy, NJ for a 2008 XLS 4WD with S&S, Luxury packages. The invoice they showed me was $27500, I offered $25000, hope they will come back to me somewhere around $26300, but they just rejected. Any suggestion ? Also, how are the NAV and DVD, are those options good to have ?

Try a different dealer. If you're in NJ then I'm sure you have plenty of Mitsu dealers in the area. You should be able to get one of the dealers to take $1500 below invoice for an 08' Outlander.
As far as the factory NAV, I am a little disappointed with it. I have a Magellan portable unit and I like it better than our Outlander's factory NAV unit. The factory one has led us more than once to the wrong address and a few times it didn't even have certain streets listed.I am going to contact Mitsu about the missing streets. Maybe there's an update? Personally, if I knew what it was like before we bought it, I would have not opted for the factory NAV. I just wanted to get my wife a decked out XLS since we've never had a car that loaded before. I didn't get the DVD system so I can't comment on that.
#758 of 986 Finally TV commercials for the Outie!!!
Mar 30, 2008 (12:49 pm)
I'm glad to finally see TV commercials for the Outlander. I'm in SoCal and for the past 2 weeks or so I've been seeing commercials for the 08' Outlanders. I guess corporate Mitsu is finally spending some money to try to get more exposure for these vehicles. Like I've said before, I really don't mind there not being too many on the road like the CRV's and RAV4's because it makes them stand out even more. I think we'll start seeing more on the road after these commercials.

It's a new rebate period, but there's no new info up at Misubishi's page. I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on an xls, perphaps a 2007, if I can find one in the color/packages I want. Anyone know what the new rebate plans might be for April?
I find it crazy that the outlander seems to be the only small cuv with no dealer incentives, especially since it sells way fewer vehicles than the other manufacturers.

It will be of great help to tell us the dealer name/contact where you got the $1200 under invoice. So far I have four dealer's names: South Coast Mitsu, Poway Mitsu, Riverside Mitsu and Glendale Mitsu.
What car did you buy? a 2008 XLS or 2007 XLS? and where (Dealer's name)

You should try calling few dealers regarding the incentives before making the move. For my personal experience, some salesmen would purposly hide the incentives to maximize their earnings. As you know, Mitsubishi currently offers grad/military/return buyer for $500 each. I was able to negociate the final price then mentioned I qualified for the $500 grad cash back to maximize my saving. I received the check yesterday, which I only waited for three weeks.
I bought the 2007 XLS loaded w/ navi/S&S/Lux in early March and I qualified for the $1,500 factory incentives. End up paying $5,000 below invoice, which thanks to all the brothers in this forum. So I'm sure there are plenty of rooms you can negociate.

I bought in South Coast. I believe they have two fleet managers. So skip the salesperson and go straight to the fleet managers, as they would be more straight forward.
