2008 Mitsubishi Endeavor KBB Expert Review
The 2008 Mitsubishi Endeavor crossover utility vehicle is more highway cruiser than rugged off-road truck but, given how most SUV owners use their vehicles, it actually makes quite a sensible choice for families on the go. With room for five, a versatile and ample cargo hold and a powerful V6 engine, the Endeavor has all the attributes to compete in this class, and its stylish exterior may appeal to those unimpressed by more pedestrian offerings. Mitsubishi is also making some great deals to move the Endeavor, another favorable reason to test-drive this often-overlooked value.
You'll Like This Car If...
If you're looking for a tough- and rugged-looking
crossover that drives like a car, yet offers plenty of ground clearance, a vehicle like the
2008 Mitsubishi Endeavor should suit your needs.
You May Not Like This Car If...
If you need the added capacity a third-row seat provides, the Endeavor won't work for you. The Endeavor cannot tow as much as a truck-based SUV, nor is it designed for serious off-road use, and it requires the use of more expensive Premium gas.
What's New for 2008
For 2008 Mitsubishi equips all Endeavors with anti-lock brakes (ABS), Active Stability and Traction Control and a power-steering-fluid cooler. The rear glass hatch which opens independently of the main hatch is no longer available on LS models.
The 2008 Mitsubishi Endeavor tracks straight and true, with no play felt in the direct and responsive steering. Its sleek shape also seems to be immune to strong crosswinds and buffeting. Around town, the Endeavor's modest size translates into easy parking and maneuverability, and even the shortest drivers should find they have not only a commanding view of the road, but also good visibility all the way around. Mitsubishi's impressive Sportronic Sequential-Shift automatic transmission is standard on the Endeavor, allowing you the option of selecting your own gear changes without the need for a clutch pedal. Another especially nice feature is the incorporation of small triangular front A-pillar windows that allow you to see people and objects that might otherwise be blocked from view by the thick windshield pillars.
Blue Dash Lighting
The Endeavor's neat blue dash lighting has a hip, youthful appeal.
Handy Power Outlets
You shouldn't have a problem finding places to plug in your accessories; the Endeavor features four 12-volt power outlets.
A look inside the 2008 Mitsubishi Endeavor reveals a modern, clean interior with seating for five and a wide rear cargo area. The dash is rather pronounced, with a strong center section that stands out and is flanked by two wing-like vents. In the center of the console are the climate and audio controls, as well as an LCD graphic display screen that shows various functions and information and the optional DVD navigation. The large cargo area can be expanded by folding down one or both rear-seat backs.
With its chiseled good looks and tall body, the 2008 Mitsubishi Endeavor stands apart from the mundane "overgrown station wagon" crowd. On SE models, an available flip-up glass rear window makes it easy to access the cargo area and, with the rear seats folded, the Endeavor can swallow quite a few mulch bags. The Endeavor may be classified as a crossover, but it has a bold look that is pure SUV. What may surprise many consumers is the fact that under its bulging flanks resides a two-wheel-drive unit-body platform shared with the 2008 Mitsubishi Galant sedan.
Notable Standard Equipment
Standard equipment on the Endeavor LS includes a 3.8-liter V6, Sportronic Sequential-Shift four-speed automatic transmission, manual air conditioning, front, front side-impact and front and rear side-curtain airbags, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes (ABS), Active Stability and Traction Control, power windows, power locks, power mirrors, rear defroster, remote keyless entry, four 12-volt outlets, AM/FM stereo with CD, cruise control, remote tailgate release, tire pressure monitor, 17-inch alloy wheels and a rear wiper/washer. As standard, the SE trim level is fitted with numerous trim and feature upgrades.
Notable Optional Equipment
Options are arranged by trim level and include a tow package, two-tone leather seating, all-wheel drive, power sunroof, retractable cargo cover, fog lights and navigation. The Special Edition Extra Value Package includes heated outside mirrors, flip-up rear window, steering-wheel audio controls, leather seating, heated front seats, eight-way power driver's seat with manual lumbar support, 360-watt Rockford Acoustic Premium audio, SIRIUS Satellite radio and a color LCD center display screen.
Under the Hood
The Endeavor offers only one engine choice---a powerful V6 that pulls strongly and achieves acceptable fuel economy. One downside to this powertrain is that it requires Premium gas to run at peak efficiency.
225 horsepower @ 5000 rpm
255 lb.-ft. of torque @ 3750 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 15/22 (2WD), 15/19 (AWD)
The Endeavor LS two-wheel-drive model's Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starts around $28,000, while the all-wheel-drive version adds nearly $2,000 to the bottom line. A fully-loaded SE tops out around $35,000. A look at the Fair Purchase Price will show you what others in your area are paying for their vehicles, so be sure to check it out before you begin negotiations. The Endeavor is expected to retain a less-than-average residual value, below that of the Nissan Murano, Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, Chevrolet Equinox and Ford Taurus X.
