2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport: a good deal?

I’m looking at a 2015 MIt.sport outlander 50,000 Miles/at 13.000 I’m so afraid of making a bad choice,It has only one owner and warranties is still on it.please tell me what whomever thinks if this is a good deal.Thank You

Without actually seeing the vehicle in person that is almost impossible over the web . The standard reply here is pay a shop to look at it for obvious problems and signs of abuse . What warranties are you talking about ? This thing should be out of the warranty period .

Powertrain warranty is 120 mo./100k.

The second owners do not get the 10 year / 100000 mile drive warranty . Maybe a reduced amount . Why not let Sharon say what the warranty she is referring to because she may being told wrong.

… or, it might be one of those worthless aftermarket warranties.

From the Mitsubishi web site: “Any subsequent owners receive the balance of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.” The OP’s vehicle would be covered. https://www.mitsubishicars.com/who-we-are/warranty

One more thing to consider. Mitsubishi dealers are nowhere near as common as Honda or Ford dealers. The best warranty in the world won’t do you any good if you can’t get it fixed. If there’s a dealer nearby the vehicle might be worth a look.

In my neck of the woods, there are dealerships for almost every make of car within 20 miles or so, and that includes makes such as Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Porsche and Ferrari.
By contrast, the closest Mitsubishi dealership is ~50 miles away.

The OP might want to consider this question:
Why are there so few remaining Mitsubishi dealerships in so many areas?
:thinking:

Check the Kelley Blue Book and NADA websites for an idea of what a good price is.

Mitsubishi has largely pulled out of the market in the US. The vehicle could become an orphan soon. Most mechanical parts will remain available in the aftermarket, though.

Here’s another vote to take it to your mechanic for a pre-purchase inspection.

There’s a dealer within 8 miles of me but yes, in some areas not so much. Mitsubishi isn’t exactly king of sales so there’s no customer base to support a lot of dealerships. If the OP has a dealer fairly close and she can do some serious dickering it might be worth it. Nationally, prices start at $7000 or so and KBB is $9,231-11,010 for a FWD model.

Mitsubishi has been circling the drain for years

And their vehicles simply aren’t as good as the competition

There’s no way I would buy one
