1998 Mitsubishi Montero Sport LS 4dr SUV


Review

I bought this car used 3-1/2 years ago
and so far all I had to do is oil
changes, tire changes and 1 battery
replacement.
This has been so far the most reliable
car I ever had.

1998 Mitsubishi Montero Sport LS 4dr SUV


Review

I have been pleased with my Montero.
It had 40,000 miles on it when I bought
it. Mileage is up to 145,000 now and
have only had to get new tires and have
the antenna replaced. Does lack in
power for a v6, but it has served me
well. Rides like a truck in the city as
expected from an suv, but has a pretty
smooth highway ride. Would definately
look at getting another one whenever I
have to look for a new car again.


Best Features

Lots of space. Storage under panels in back. Seats are really comfortable. Good radio/cd changer.


Worst Features

Relocate cup holder to not be in front of a/c and radio. More power would be nice.

1998 Mitsubishi Montero Sport LS 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Its underpowered, bulky, and heavy. It
takes corners worse than any chevy SUV
i've ever driven. The steering parts
are failing now, and it only has 54K
miles on it.


Best Features

I like the shape of the steering wheel, and its easy to put aftermarket mods on it to make it look nice.


Worst Features

Although it looks nice, it doesn't hold up on performace, and I can't believe that even for a 24Valve motor lacks this much power.

1998 Mitsubishi Montero Sport LS 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Bought it used (1 year old/20K miles)
now has 94K miles on it. Never
has "broken-down" but had minor
problems with brake pads wearing out,
pwr antenna broke (due to winter
weather), cup holders broke off, and
4WD now takes some encouragement to
work. Has gotten us through some bad
snowstorms and I take it off-road
occasionally with good results.
Otherwise we have enjoyed it and is a
nice family vehicle.


Best Features

Styling, gas milage (compared to other SUVs),floor-board storage in back, nice room for a mid-size SUV


Worst Features

The 1998 V6 needs more power (they have increased it since then), more reliable 4WD.

Review

I love my Montero Sport. Easy to drive,
easy to park. No problems on hills. The
Montero is our second SUV, we also own
a Isuzu Trooper and the Montero is far
Superior in comfort and handling. The
cupholder broke early and they repaired
at no cost. We have been very happy
with it.
