I bought a Mitsubishi Raider for my son who is in college. It has a beautiful design. I also considered the Toyota Tacoma, Chevy Colorado. The Raider was the best for the price with more features. The rebate made it even more affordable and the warranty was a plus. My son is very tall (6'7") and the 4 door appeared to have more room than the others. It rides as well as my Toyota Tundra and gets better gas mileage. I am very pleased with this vehicle.
The running boards and power on come automatically with Durocross.
When the glue gets hot around the tire well fenders, it seeps through. My dealer has advised that when they come up with the solution, they will call.
I was always a car guy, until I drove the Mitsubishi Raider. The ride is very smooth and quiet. I never thought a truck could drive like a luxury car. Well done Mitsubishi! It is also very durable too.
