2007 Outlander will get at least $2000 below invoice. Today I received an email from a desperate dealer that want me to buy one of his two 2008 Outlanders at $1000 below invoice. I found later on that this dealership is to receive a batch of 2009 Outlanders. Outlanders with a VIN number with a digit 9 will start to be sold in the USA perhaps at August/September. Does somebody have heard about 2009 Outlanders? This dealer volunteer to tell me that Mitsubishi America is not distributing any more 2008 Outlanders. Any comments?

Only XLS has a 3rd row hollow for a seat. Certainly you can do what you want with your car. Go ahead but be prepare to live with rattles all the time the car is with you.

Swirl_Junkie, I forgot to mention, the $22300 price is for a base XLS 4WD (invoice on this bad boy is around $24202), 2WD version is obviously cheaper by around $1200-$1500. And I am interested in 4WD only as I live in the Northeast.

I forgot to mention as well. Mine is Also AWD. I think you should be at $21,200. And that's only $1500.00 below invoice. Their hold back is $502.00 so they'll claim they are losing $900.. on the deal. They aren't. I'm only mentioning this based on what i've seen others purchase for, and what my experience was. If you live where there's little selection, you might not be able to do as well.
I just did a search of all the 2007's within my area on another website, ( i doubt I can mention it... rhymes with pars dot com.) then emailed dealers.
Good luck on your search. I think these dealers are really hurting, and this car isn't selling well. All things to your favor. Wait a month or two and the rebates will get fatter.
If you search back, there were people getting 07's at four and five thousand below, but they were loaded models... more room to play with numbers there.

Are you saying the hollow for the storage compartment will not fit the 3rd row seat? I believe you are mistaken. Do you know that there is physically something different in the hollow between the SE and the XLS?

Do you speak by your own experience? I have the 3rd row seat and it does not rattle.

I meant third row of seats adapted someway into an Outlander SE where its geometry hasn't been made for a third seat row. If you want a third row of seats you need to have a XLS. The third row seats in the Outlander XLS does not rattle.
I have had bad experience with dealers that incorporate extra equipment in the car (e.g. options: Electronics, sounds, fog lights, leather seats, extra repeaters, etc) and wires are not properly isolated, screws left off, foam taken off, etc). Any of these can be causes of rattles. So when you said that you expect to install a third row of seats in a vehicle not designed for that then I assume that there is a high probability of rattles.

Yep, XLS here. I haven't actually heard somebody successfully doing the mod, but it the SE has the same floor geometry, then I don't see much of a problem, except the cost maybe.

Maybe the geometry is the same, but are the holes there to attach to? I wouldn't want to be tapping holes for bolts in a brand new car. Not through the floorboard anyhow.
#792 of 973 2007 Outlander LS Pricing
Apr 23, 2008 (11:03 am)
Hi all. Great forum. We live in Orlando and started looking at the outies and think they are slick. We are looking at the 07 LS and hope someone may have some pricing info for our area and target prices. It looks like California has some great deals and we are hoping the southeast will as well! Thanks in advance!
