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

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

The Shogun Sport is a relatively low-cost way into a 4x4, and cheaper than a Jeep Cherokee or Nissan X-Trail. Even the Kia Sorento, supposedly a budget buy, is more expensive as a used car at any age.

However, the running costs are not nearly so attractive. Even on the diesel version, you'll get much less than 30mpg, which compares very poorly to the near-40mpg of a diesel Nissan X-Trail or the 36mpg of a Kia Sorento.

The Kia and Nissan also make the Shogun Sport's regular maintenance look expensive, but any unscheduled work could be even worse. Warranty Direct says the average cost for Mitsubishi repairs is higher than those for prestige brands such as BMW, and for other 4x4 makes, including Land Rover and Jeep.
