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.
Lots of space. Storage under panels in
back. Seats are really comfortable.
Good radio/cd changer.
Relocate cup holder to not be in front
of a/c and radio. More power would be
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.
Styling, gas milage (compared to other
SUVs),floor-board storage in back, nice
room for a mid-size SUV
The 1998 V6 needs more power (they have
increased it since then), more reliable
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
