Brand new 2020 Mitsubishi Outllander.
The ONLY vehicle I have bought since 2004 .
Own a 2020 now.
Owned a 2017
Owned a 2015 and owned one 2004 - 2014 (may it rest in peace. lady ran a red light and trashed it )over 200,000 miles and never needed work . Ever in 10 years .

20,000 cash will get just about any on the lot.(haggle)


You Too?
Sweet!!

Everyone tried to talk me into a Subaru but despite being good vehicles , they're gas hogs & the ground clearance was lower than the Outlander. The deciding factor for me to even look at the Mitsubishi was that a few First Responders I know own them. For obvious reasons they needed something dependable & low maintenance that could handle bad roads if needed.

It's great value for money, I did haggle.
Same here, it's only needed brakes. Slap some Bosch wipers on it & you're ready for anything.

They tried to get me to buy a Hyundai.

Sorry, but wherever you got that info, it's not correct.

Subaru Outback excels in almost every category over the Outlander:

Ground Clearance - 8.7" for Outback vs. 8.5" for Outlander
MPG - 33 for Outback vs. 30 for Outlander
Range - 610.5 for Outback vs. 481.5 for Outlander
Towing capacity - 2,700lbs for Outback vs. 1,500 for Outlander
Cargo capacity - 75.7 cu ft for Outback vs. 63.3 cu ft for Outlander
Front seat room - Outback wins across the board vs. Outlander (probably the biggest reason I chose the Subaru)

Mitsubishi's are fine vehicles, but they're not better. I had a Mitsubishi Pajero (essentially the Montero here in North America) when I was living in SE Asia. For as hard as I beat on that thing out in the jungle I have to say they are pretty tough. One of our main jobsites was 62km off-road in the deep jungle and that thing never let me down. Rugged vehicles.

Here in North America though, the Mitsubishi's are generally more $$$ than the comparable Subaru. In the cross-over SUV class I'd go with the Subaru. In the straight SUV class I'd probably go with the Montero / Pajero.

What about the honda crv? Even if it looks like a mom car it has great ratings. I can get one for 22.

Thoughts?

Honda crv


That would be my suggestion, and also what I'm looking at but in the EX-L trim. I have a CRV now and am partial to Honda. The only reason I might *not* get a CRV is because I dislike the newer body styles, particularly the back end. I think it was around 2017 they redesigned, so that might be the back end I dislike. So I'm curiously looking at Nissan. Not sure the details, but some Nissan dealerships have lifetime powertrain warranty.

All my Hondas have lasted well over 200k with few problems before eventually being sold in excellent mechanical condition.

Back in 2014, I bought a 2010 Toyota Tundra with 45k miles for 20k. Owned it for 40k miles. Oil changes, brakes and tires was all the maintenance I had to do.

Sits high on the road. Tons of power and drives like a dream.

Forget the KIAs, Subarus and American brands. Get the Lexus RX350 or Toyota Landcruiser. I sell cars, I know what I'm talking about. There's a reason you find them in all developing countries. 'Used' to cushion you from depreciation (These won't depreciate further).

Get a jeep.
The older the better and the easier to fix with intermediate mechanical knowledge.

Pretty much identical to what I'm looking at except for trim level.

2017

The thing about CRVs is that they're basically a Civic in an SUV body, so more for sport/fuel economy versus towing anything of weight.

But the Nissan Murano is pretty sweet, and I like the body style better than the newer CRVs.

Nissan Navara

I'm no expert but I see hundreds of these in rural Britain.

I got a ride in one once and it was a beast.

Just a suggestion.

While a truck would come in handy around here, I don't want to drive one daily.

I really like the Murano.

Welllll, the most universally found manufacturer world wide is Toyota, pretty much hands-down. That, and Mercedes commercial trucks. Used to be IVECO and Isuzu also. I guess you do find a few Nissan's also. Lexus? I'd say maybe in Saudi, or the ME, but not anywhere else really.

I have a buddy who has used Carvana a couple times and he thought they were great! Trade-ins both times and they gave him a great deal.

His last deal was pretty surprising. Traded an old, high mileage Wrangler (lifted) on a 2019 F-150. Man, that F-150 looked like it just drove off the dealer lot (new)! I was impressed. I even went to see if they had some deals on bigger trucks, but 1/2 tons are about the biggest they do. My next purchase will be a 1 ton, and maybe even a 450.

Same here, then again I do a lot of work myself on my cars. Although I typically prefer a small turbo hatchback, when the time comes I am going to turbo my Crosstrek for a little extra get up and go. Nothing crazy like the guy that swapped out a WRX engine and drivetrain into one, which I will admit makes me seriously jealous, but my wife says this is the practical car.

Just need to be able to afford the AWD swap on my Fiesta ST, which is twice the cost of the car itself last I checked. It would make me feel more comfortable putting an even larger turbo setup on it though, as it stands right now it really doesn't like to fully grip until third...

Look up the rally spec and build it.

As to the thread, Volvo XC 90 (have to be 2nd hand). These days, it is the vehicle of choice for the discerning landowner.
