Default Buying a 4007

Seen one of the last ones for sale and it's mighty tempting.

What are they like to own?

Update - 4 months in and it's proving to be fast for a car of its type, grunty and flexible, consistently returns low 40s MPG, handles well and is supremely spacious and comfortable. Cthe 4WD system is simple but well executed and you really can feel it dig in when driving in poor conditions.

Downsides - the ride is only just on the acceptable side of firm, it feels flimsy inside, it sounds rough and the genuine polystyrene(!) Mitsubishi sound proofing under the carpet is a nasty and ineffective joke, the cruise works well but is jerky when engaging/releasing and it's uglier that Jade Goody in a bikini.

Summary - very capable and worthy, just lacking the final polish needed to turn it from a good car into a great one. 7.5/10. We're happy.

Yeah, we like it a lot. It's just a little frustrating as it would've taken so little effort to make it a work of genius.

1st service been and gone. No problems at all. Engine loosening up nicely and it's now giving some mighty mid range stomp - hardly surprising as its got more torque to weight than an X5 3.0D, and that was before the remap...

Fuel consumption hovering around the 40 mark. I get it around the high 30's, but Woman - who drives it most of the time - never fails to better 42 average to a tank.

Front tyres down to about 6mm, no measurable wear on the rears. It really is quite kind to its tyres.

Bland interior is still pithing me off, but can't grumble about the kit levels. Will be soon investing in an integrated DAB module so I can get my Planet Rock fix.

I must admit to being quite looking forward to a nasty wet and snowy winter

The 4007 seems to be a good machine as above. Problems are few and far between. Had one on the other day for a particle filter additive refill at 216k kms. No other problems other than that, which is a serviceable item

I can't help but say the Citroen C-Crosser is the nicer looking out of all three ie Outlander and 4007.
Citroen have put nicer exterior kit on which it needs.

The outlander is worst of all, with its nasty VW tdi engine which is massively underpowered. Although Mitsubishi has its own MIVEC diesel in them now. It can't compare to be being the same vehicle as the Peugeot/Citroen versions.

After much cussing, swearing and hitting things with a hammer, I've fitted a Yaesu 2M amateur radio transceiver concealed in the centre console.

As a general observation, while this car has all the style of Dwayne Dibley I am loving it more and more as time goes by. Easily the most underrated pug of this century.

20k miles now gone since February. Just serviced it, and bled the brakes as they were ok but not exactly anchors.

Felt the same to me but Woman who drives it most reports that it feełs livelier and the brakes much better.

Next stop - 40k miles, and praying for sone snow in the meantime
