Buying a used full-sized MPV can be fraught with all sorts of troubles. These vehicles often lead a hard life and buyers are often so anxious to find something in pristine condition that they'd often be better advised to buy new. One vehicle that does tend to shrug off the worst excesses of unruly children and big mileages is the Mitsubishi Grandis. Although it's only been on sale since 2004, dealers report few problems and strong demand. You may not find any super cheap bargains but you'll certainly find value for money.
The Grandis isn't the most obvious option but for some buyers that will be half the appeal. With sleek styling, an excellent reliability record and plenty of standard convenience and safety kit, the Grandis is an MPV that has a lot going for it. Unfortunately, there's a bit of maths involved in ownership. The models that are available to buy relatively cheaply - the 2.4-litre petrol models - are quite costly to run so may not be the bargains they at first appear. The diesel versions will save you fuel bills but the entry level cars are priced way higher. If you plan on covering modest mileages, the 2.4-litre model could be a good choice. Higher mileage buyers should save their pennies and bag a diesel. Some will be playing the waiting game for the car to get past the steepest part of its depreciation curve.
