I own a 20 month old warrior model which replaced our Mark 4 golf TDI. I needed a bigger family car to seat 7. Rear seats are excellent and can fit small adults comfortably unlike smaller mini MPV's. The size is in between a mini MPV and large MPV. Diesel is responsive but a little noisy but you get used to this!. It is easy to drive around town and narrow country lanes as the car is not as wide as bigger MPV's and fits nicely into narrow supermarket car parks! I had a few teething problems with the alarm going off and lousy radio reception and took it to SMC Stockey Park (AVOID) to carry out the warranty work.. Biggest MISTAKE I made. They insisted that the wiring under the roof lining was squashed and the radio recption was down to the Tow bar being fitted badly even though it was fitted by Mitsubishi! When the car was supposedly ready( alarm still going off) they would not give the car back until I payed then £99.88 for the labour charge even though the car was under warranty. I had to pay them otherwise I did not get my car back! (Mitsubishi head office are in process of giving me a refund) I then had to take the car to SGT TAPLOW who carried out the work in 3 hours and the problem was down to the alarm wired incorrectly and the radio recption was down to loose wiring. They even cleaned my car and the technician showed me how to use the DVD player correctly. NEVER EVER use any SMC outlets.
I have just purchased this car,a 7 month old demonstrator. I didn't realize just how pathetic my old grand scenic was! What a lovely car to drive.It looks good inside and out and you feel like your'e flying instead of driving.The comfort is second to none and the seats move easily.Plenty of room with the extra seats up or down and they're big enough for adults to use as well. Nothing has gone wrong so far but I'll keep you posted if it does ! Delighted with my purchase.
I purchased a 12,000-mile one-owner example from a Mitsubishi dealer. It is a cool Ice Blue one! To date, I have had no problems.
Chose a 20 month Grandis Warrior to replace our S Reg Ford Galaxy. Our 4 Children are older now so need to fit in larger children, Grand Scenic/Mazda 5/Toyota Verso were all too small. Tired of lifting Galaxy seats in and out so wanted something with seats which fold in to floor. S-MAX fold flat seats: fiddly, and have flappy bits of carpet left over, Grandis: a doddle and fold completely flush. Getting in and out of back row is easy too, e.g. a single foot operated lever tips and slides the middle row forward. Really good boot space even with all seats up!
Driving is a pleasure, much quieter than then Galaxy, lower road and wind noise, and much better power delivery when accelerating, the auto box in the Grandis is far far better than in our old (2.3) Glaxy. Very responsive.
Fuel economy pretty poor (2.4GDI petrol), but no worse than expected and maybe a bit better than the Galaxy, Diesel version was £2K more for same spec, and very noisy. Since we don't do many miles not worth it.
Interior comfort is superb, all 7 seats have plenty of leg room and accommodate adults, lovely stitched leather. Plastics quality on dash and doors a little cheap, but considering the high spec/size of the car, you get a lot for your money, something has to give! All feels tough though.
Paid £13K OTR for it, which compared to similar spec Galaxy, C8s, Espaces, and even Grand Scenis, was unbeatable. Includes DVD system too!
Puts a smile on our face everytime we drive it.
