Default Best price for LS with tow bar in VIC

Hi

about to pull the trigger and enter the Mitsubishi Challenger world

What pricing should I expect to pay for an auto 5 seater with tow bar?

Best I have got so far is $46990 Drive Away. Sounds too high

No idea on price at the minute as it's supply and demand.
But, Dennis from Rex Gorrell smashed every other dealer I spoke to, The drive from Melb to Geelong saved me almost $2,000.

PS.. Auto?

I suggest you go to the Missing Bitz web site and have a look. That price is over the top.
Have a look at this http://www.mitsubishi-motors.com.au/.../latest-offers

Carsales.com shows ls 2012 built manual 43.5 auto 45 drive away good starting point should get several extras thrown in I would think

Wife can then drive it and easier to control off road

I see zero advantages in a manual except for some ego trip

Fuel consumption - Bugger all difference and depends on driving styles

Torque.- Have you seen the torque curves of the manual v auto. both hit 340Nm at 1600 rpm and drop back below that figure at 3500rpm. That works for anyone

$2k cheaper - wife wont drive a manual so not even an option, but no clutches to burn out either and harder to use off road is most situations

I'd pay 3,4 or maybe even 5 grand for the pleasure of not having to live on a gear stick ever again, so much more relaxing and easy but horses for courses
