Model Highlights

The 2008 Mitsubishi Raider is closely related to the Dodge Dakota pickup but has unique sheetmetal and was styled independently by Mitsubishi's design center in California. Compared to most pickup designs, the Raider is said by Mitsubishi to have an "urban edge," and the front treatment is especially reminiscent of other vehicles in the Mitsubishi line.

The Raider has a fully boxed frame that's hydro-formed and roll-formed for strength, and the unequal-length A-arm front suspension and leaf-spring rear suspension are configured to provide good on-road handling without compromising hauling ability. The Raider also comes with front and rear stabilizer bars, which help improve handling.

The Raider is offered in LS trim and comes in two body styles--extended cab and double cab. A 3.7L V6 engine, making 210 horsepower and 235 lb-ft of torque, is standard on all Raider models. The base transmission is a manual six-speed with overdrive, while a four-speed automatic with overdrive is optional. Extended cab models are available in 2WD only, while the double cab is offered with optional 4WD.

The extended cab model comes with a 6.4-foot bed, rear access doors, and seating for three in front and two in back. Double cab models come with a 5.3-foot bed, four full-size doors, and room for up to six inside.

All Raider LS models include air conditioning, cloth upholstery, a 12-volt power jack, and a CD stereo with MP3 capability and digital media connectivity. Raider LS Double Cab models add the Power and Convenience package as standard, which features tilt steering, cruise control, power windows, locks, and mirrors, fog lamps, sliding rear glass, and keyless entry. The package is optional on the Extended Cab LS. Several standalone options are available and include goodies like bed liners and extenders, bed rail protectors, side steps, and premium paint.

All 2008 Mitsubishi Raiders come with standard safety equipment, including front dual-stage air bags and four-wheel anti-lock brakes.


Pros

Maneuverability compared to full-size trucks; bold styling; modest V6 power; transferable five-year/60,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.


Model News

For 2008, Mitsubishi's durable Raider pickup range has been further narrowed to better target the truck to consumers. The DuroCross model has been discontinued, as has the SE. The optional 235-horsepower V8 has also been dropped, leaving the 3.7L V6 as the sole powerplant. LS-level trucks in either one extended cab style or two double cab styles are the only available models in the lineup. All Raiders receive a revised dashboard.


Value Writeup

The 2008 Mitsubishi Raider is based on the popular Dodge Dakota. As such, it rides on a capable chassis, but features a distinctive, edgy look all its own in keeping with the current Mitsubishi model line. When introduced in 2006, the Raider was ranked Best in Class in AutoPacific's Vehicle Satisfaction study. With the V6, the Raider can haul between 2,950 pounds and 4,150 pounds, depending on drivetrain.

The affected vehicles are equipped with a dual-stage driver frontal air bag that may be susceptible to moisture intrusion which, over time, could cause the inflator to rupture.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Chrysler will notify the affected Chrysler and Dodge owners and Mitsubishi will notify the affected Raider owners. Dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. The recall began for Chrylser on June 8, 2015. The recall for Mitsubishi stated on June 24, 2015. Chrysler and Dodge owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Mitsubishi owners may call 1-888-648-7820. Chrysler's number for this recall is R25. Note: This recall supersedes recall 14V817 in its entirety. Vehicles that have had their driver side frontal air bag replaced previously need to have their air bag replaced under this recall as well.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Additionally, unless included in "Zone A" above, Chrysler is also recalling 2004-2008 RAM 1500, 2005-2009 RAM 2500, 2006-2009 RAM 3500, 2007-2009 RAM 3500 Cab Chassis, 2008-2009 RAM 4500 and 5500 Cab Chassis, 2004-2009 Dodge Durango, 2007-2009 Chrysler Aspen, 2007-2009 Jeep Wrangler, 2008-2009 Dodge Challenger, 2005-2008 Dodge Magnum, 2005-2009 Chrysler 300, 2006-2009 Dodge...

Consequence
These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules, and used as original equipment or replacement equipment. These inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling. An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Chrysler will notify the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM owners. Mitsubishi owners will be notified by their company. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. Chrysler mailed interim notices to owners on July 7, 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
