2008 Mitsubishi Raider Reviews

Vehicle Overview
The Raider comes in extended cab and Double Cab body styles and can have either rear- or four-wheel drive. For 2008, the number of Raider trims has been slimmed down; now buyers can choose between one extended cab model and two Double Cab models. All Raiders are powered by a 210-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6.

Mitsubishi promotes the Raider's "aggressive exterior," which was designed in California. A thin upper grille and thick lower bumper up front help produce a look that's reminiscent of the company's other models. Wheel arches are flared.

The Raider has a fully boxed, hydroformed and roll-formed steel frame. Extended cab trucks have rear access doors, while Double Cab pickups get four conventional doors. Each body style is 218.5 inches long and uses a 131.3-inch wheelbase. Cargo beds measure 6.5 feet long on extended cab models and 5.25 feet on Double Cab trucks.

All models have rack-and-pinion steering, a heavy-duty suspension, and front and rear stabilizer bars. All models have 16-inch wheels, with extended cab models getting steel wheels with wheel covers and both Double Cab models getting aluminum wheels.

Standard equipment on the LS extended cab includes a 40/20/40-split front bench seat, air conditioning, a tachometer, variable intermittent wipers, a CD player with four speakers, and front and rear cupholders.

LS Double Cab models, available in either two- or four-wheel drive, add power side windows, keyless entry, power front windows, power locks, a tilt steering wheel and cruise control.

Under the Hood
The V-6 develops 235 pounds-feet of torque and works with a six-speed manual gearbox or a four-speed automatic transmission.

Rear-wheel antilock brakes are standard. Previously available side curtain airbags were eliminated for 2007.

Warranties Explained


Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.


Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
