I bought the 98 Montero over a year ago
and haven't had any major mechanical
problems, what so ever. The one problem
that I've had is the alarm system which
goes off randomly and sometimes wont
shut off. My blender in my house sets
off the alarm also! So that's jacked,
but the handle and the drive is
excellent. Very comfortable and roomy.

I bought this SUV a few days before my
Junior year of high school ended. It
was a good price and had very low
mileage for the year. I have had it for
8 months now and have had no problems
with it. I feel it's a wonderful car
and i love driving it. Compared to
numerous other SUV's, the monter sport
is a comfortable, quiet ride. I am very
happy with my choice

This is my 3rd Montero - 1st Sport.
Love the exterior looks, especially
when first intro'd. All Montero's have
been mechanically sound and virtually
trouble free. Only issues came when we
replaced my wife's Acura with a
Landcruiser. I realize I can't compare
the two, but man what a difference.
The Montero feels like a sportscar
handling-wise, but several aspects, the
lack of power mostly, have been
highlighted. Still think it's a good
car for the money, but the Landcruiser
has me spoiled.
