Keeps on Tickin'
By dap on
1997 Mitsubishi Montero Sport LS 4dr SUV 4WD
We have owned our Red Montero Sport for around 5 years now, and this thing just keeps on tickin'. I have been planning on buying a newer vehicle, but since this one is paid off and still runs so well, and still looks very good for a 97, I just can't see any reason for getting rid of it. One big plus is that it is roomy in the back seat for my two teens and has plenty of interior room throughout. The seat belts are beginning to lose their "spring" but it's not a major problem, especially for an 12 year old vehicle. I have never owned this old of a vehicle that is so trouble free. Tune ups and other routine maintenance is about all we have had to do. Looks newer than 97.
Comfort of seats, exterior looks (red with gold trim) and most of all reliability.
