Pros: Smooth driving.
Cons: Premium Fuel
Advice: Buy it! If you like frills go with the XLS, if not stick with the LSI absoultely love this SUV. I never thought I would like an SUV but this car is a dream. Not only was it 1000's less than the Pilot, it handled better, felt better, looked better, had 0% financing, and a 5 year warranty. You can't beat the value. I opted for the LS because I thought the upgrades in the XLS didn't warrant the price increase.
Pros: Ride quality, Quietness, Dashboard.
Advice: Buy it! Buy it! Buy it! I suggest the Limited model, but all models are great.Went in the car with a baby,2 other kids, and an adult. Very comfortablte vehicle. Watched the DVD entertainment system for the ride. Went over many bumps and absorbed them. Made a quick , tight turn and responded great. I highly recommend this vehicle. Also, the gauge cluster is very attractive and put together well.
Cons: Premium Fuel
Advice: Opt for the XLS is your budget allows for it. The LS is wonderful also.I had not even considered the Endeavor although it had caught my eye on their commercials I thought it would be to expensive. I have driven the 1st generation Lexus RX300 and that is what this truck feels like, of course interiour materials are cheaper than the Lexus but it's more than adequate for the price. I was coming out of my beloved Montero Sport and was not thrilled about getting a new vehicle but I am enjoying this SUV more and more everyday. Only setback is that it takes Premium Fuel but the difference (some where of $5.00 more a tank) does not offset the value. I almost paid 10,000 more for a 4runner with less comfort and options.
Pros: The rear air conditioning air vents make it possible for car-sick prone children to get direct access to air conditioning.
Cons: The lack of available exterior colors.
Advice: Buy online after you have done your homework by test driving the model with all the features you want.I love this car! It handles beautifully on the freeway and around town. The cargo storage is perfect for a mother who shuttles kids with sports gear. The leather interior is luxurious and the heated seats are perfect for cold weather. Most importantly, the visability is excellent. No more mini-vans for me! And Mitsubishi has a wonderful warranty with roadside assistance.
Cons: Hair vent fins brake easily
Advice: Go test drive one now!!!We have 32,000 miles on our Endeavor and the only complaint/probelm I have is that the air vent fins and some minor plastics interior attachments brake easily. Mitsubishi repaired them under warranty but I personally think that those should be some of the last things to go. The ride, performance, leg room and over all fun to drive is great, no awsome for the price. You can really take advantage of Mitsubishi right now because they are having some minor fincial problems. Test drive this SUV last. Drove the Pilot and Highlander, for the price, the Endeavor is definently the better deal.
Pros: the drive of this suv is the best ive ever been in
Cons: no fog lamps
Advice: buy this suvI have an ls with 11000 miles the hp in this suv is sweet the radio rocks and there is a ton of leg space in the front and back seats.
Pros: Exterior appearance
Cons: Front seats
Advice: Check out all vehicles in this class. Many better ones available at the Limited's Price Point.Really liked the appearance of this Vehicle. Rode very well, but was very dissappointed with how flat the front seats were. Also the radio and climate control area are very weird looking. The Stereo did kick butt. Back seats had plenty of leg room. Lots of wind noise. The Mercury Mountaineer Luxury W/V8 and AWD was a much more solid vehicle. Intensly more comfortable and got for around $31,000 with rebates and price haggling back in April. Listed for $38,000+. Test drove at least 7 other vehicles in this class.
