1999 Mitsubishi Montero Sport XLS 4dr SUV


Review

The Mitsubishi Montero is one of the best SUVs out there. Mine is a two wheel drive XLS model. I go trail riding a lot and the driving comfort of it is outstanding. Even on gravel roads the suspention is amazingly smooth for a seven year old SUV. It can handle most anything you can throw at it as long as it isn't too messy. The only thing I would trade it in on would have to be another one but with 4WD.


Best Features

Even with the big P265/70R15 tires, the interior noise is quiet on the highway.


Worst Features

Give it a more powerful V6 engine with at least 250 horsepower.

Review

I LOVE my Montero Sport. Bought it new
in 1999 and can't bear to part with
it. Fun to drive - have never had any
mechanical problems in 5 years and
52000 miles. changed brake pads at
35000 miles - no problems - fun and
easy to drive. Suspension is a little
stiff for a bit more rougher ride but
still comfortable. No body problems -
5 years old and still looks brand new.


Best Features

Just plain fun


Worst Features

CUPHOLDERS! They block radio and air controls but I work my way around it.

Review

Wanted a stylish, reliable, easy to
handle SUV and have really enjoyed
driving this car. Even at 4 yrs. old
people still ask me if I just bought
it... Interior cloth seats are easy
keepers and always look good. Have
regular oil changes, tire rotations,
recommended key service and it runs
great. Didn't need new tires until
45,000 miles. Fold down seats allow for
hauling oversize items. Love this car.


Worst Features

Better cup holders in front.

Review

I dont know what these other guys are
talking about. If your thinking of
buying a nice SUV that wont break your
bank and looks good, then this is it.
I bought mine at 3 years old with over
60k on it (as a second vehicle for
towing) and it runs fantastic. I've
travelled from Florida to NY three
times with it in 4 months and the only
noticeable problem is a slight shudder
between 2nd and 3rd gears (its
automatic) if the RPMs are Very low. I
feel this maybe twice a week. If all I
have to do to a vehicle with this many
miles on it Im thankful.


Best Features

Cool pockets in the overhead, storage under the rear floor, map pockets on front seats, good cargo room for thid size SUV.


Worst Features

Yes, the cupholders are annoyingly in the way of the stereo, especially since i put in an aftermarket one. There are simple and cheap solutions for this that any one can do.
