What used Mitsubishi Outlander 4x4 will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Mitsubishi Outlander 4x4?

The Outlander's rivals, such as the Subaru Forester and Toyota RAV4, generally had smaller engines and manual gearboxes as standard, so the Mitsubishi typically has worse fuel consumption, doing just 28.0mpg, and it has no diesel option.

However, the Mitsubishi's one advantage is that, at any given age, it is generally cheaper to buy than rivals that were similarly expensive as new cars.

The trouble is you'll need to recoup a lot of money that way, because insurance bills and regular servicing look costly on the Outlander. Although you shouldn't need too much unscheduled maintenance, if you do, it will probably be costly.

Warranty Direct tell us labour rates at Mitsubishi dealers are only a little higher than average, but the cost of repairs is very high - more than those for not only prestige brands, such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz, but also for other 4x4 makers, including Land Rover and Jeep.
