I have the same problem with my 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport that many others have posted about. Shifts hard from reverse to first, then shortly after shifts into 3rd (safety mode) neutral light flashes and won't shift to any other gears until it has been shut off and restarted. Here's the odd part, on rainy days, after driving on wet roads for about 10 minutes, I can shut it down and ... Read More
runs good but hesitates when accelerating. replaced mass air flow sensor, air filter, fuel pump, and fuel filter still hesitates. any suggestions?
Hey Guys, After finding this forum when experiencing this exact problem I was extremely happy! Big question though... While researching the part, I found a pre-2000 to 2000 solenoid, and a 2001-2005 solenoid. Unfortunately the parts site, does not show actual part numbers, so I can not tell which is which. (I own a 2000) - For those that have ordered and/or replaced this part, was the number different than posted ... Read More
I have a '97 Montero Sport. My alternator went out yesterday but I didn't realize it was the alternator. The first indication was very dim lights and the voltmeter was reading 10-11 volts. I first had the 7 year old battery tested at Advance Auto and the tester indicated that it was a bad battery so I replaced it. I then put it in and immediated the voltmeter jumped to 14 ... Read More
I am having the SAME problem with my 97 Montero. I have been scouring the internet, and there are a ridiculous amount of people out there who have had the same problem with their battery/alternator. I too have spent over a thousand dollars getting this fixed. Has anyone contacted Mitsubishi about this? It's getting ridiculous.
I've been have the following problem, think its a transmission & sensor problem. After have the transmission flush and new (only Mitsubishi's ATF) fluids added, the car still will not shift from 2nd and 3rd gears until it's warmed up (about 10 to 15 mins and about 6 miles staight driving). Once it shifts, it will start shifting after that on its own. AutoZone did an analysis and it came back ... Read More

You have a button on your dash that was pushed. It is for winter mode driving that will start the vehicle in 2nd gear. Push it again and it will go off.
Hello, have a 2000 montero sport that out of the blue won't start with key. Still turns over normal but won't fire. It has a remote starter that has been on it since new that it will still start with, but just not with key. Guessing that it is probably ignition, but would like some advice before sticking any $ into it. Thx.
This just appeared the over the weekend on my SUV and it won't shut off. Not sure what it means. Can anyone help me? Thanks! CG :(
My 2000 mitsubishi montero sport XLS has been having troubles for about 2 months now. The brake and battery lights came on randomly since ive owned the car( June 2005), only when i would rev my engine too hard or brake too fast. The lights would then go away after a would rev it again or brake again usually. But in Jan 2007, the brake and battery light came on and ... Read More
I need a part for the transfer case on a 2000 Montero Sport. The parts I need have been discontinued. I need the nylon? ball and all that goes on the bottom of the shifter to keep it in place. Seems item has been discontinued and the shop can't even get a part number. Anyone have a heads up on this? I'm going to swear off anything Mitsubishi if this holds. ... Read More

Hi, you may have already purchased a vehicle by now but here are my thoughts. We have had our 2000 sport since 2001 and have over 115K on it now. It has been extremely reliable so far as we have not had to replace or repair any major components to date. On the flip side I have found that common maintenance items such as spark plugs and even lights are expensive ... Read More
I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport 2WD LTD. I am the original owner. I drive all over the Los Angeles area, combination city/hwy. I am not an aggressive driver, but I do tend to travel in the 70-80 range on the fwy (when possible). I have kept mpg records obsessively. I get 17-19 mpg pretty consistently. The best mileage I've gotten has been about 22 mpg on long road trips. ... Read More

The Anti Lock Braking light turns on on my Mitsubishi Montero Sport 2000 XLS when I use the 4WD gear. I typically drive only on 2WD, and use 4WD in winter only. THe past couple of years, I did not have to use 4WD at all, but yesterday when I decided to use it I had some issues. First, the 4WD indicator did not come up for a while, when I ... Read More

Recently, my wife and I have been shopping around for a SUV. The SUV's we test drove were the; 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport: Not as nice as the Nissan ride but, for the money its an excellent vehicle. More room in the Montero than the other vehicles. The interior features are basic but put together with quality. With the low interest rates until October 2nd this is the SUV to buy. ... Read More
I purchased a new 2000 LS Montero Sport 4X4 about 7 months ago and have been having problems with it stalling/poor acceleration since I bought it. I just got done talking to the dealer and now they are telling me Mitsubishi issued an advisory that says to let the car warm up in the morning before I drive it and that I now have to use Premium gas in it. Anyone ... Read More
I, too, have the problem with a vibration in the AC of a brand new 2000 Montero Sport. I love the vehicle, in spite of the fact that the engine is a little weak accelerating from a standstill, but the AC vibration is frustrating. When the air is off there is no problem. The problem occurs in my vehicle at around 2300 to 2700 RPM. There is bound to be something ... Read More

This past February, while backing out of our driveway, with 13" of snow on the ground, the drivers side mud flap bent forwards and broke away from the plastic it is attached to. Upon checking with the dealer and Mitsubishi Customer Care, I was told that this is cosmetic AND IS NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY! By the way, in order to fix the problem, you must (so I was told by ...

I am in the process of working a deal on a new 2000 Montero Sport for $250 over dealer invoice price (including option packages, destination charges & advertising cost).

hi folks, I Just purchased a 2000 Montero Sport Ls 2WD for 21,680 out the door price. I get free oil changes for the 1st year and for the life of the SUV, they are $9.99. I got it for 0% down and 2.9% financing. Is this a good deal? I did however, leave off the running boards and the roof rack. I never place anything on top of my SUV, ... Read More
I have just purchased a 2000 Montero Sport LS. The dealer told me that I have to use Mitsubishi Oil filters, whether I change the oil myself (which I intend on doing) or whether I get it done somewhere. Is that a must? Has anyone had any problems with using a "generic" oil filter? Thanks.
I went by the Mitsubishi dealer and he had a Royal Blue 2000 Montero Sport LS the color which is not listed anywhere in their brochures/info.

Big Easy Al, Read your note about buying a 2000 LTD. My '98 Montero Sport lease is about to expire and I am looking for a new one (live in Louisiana). Interested in the dealers you FAX'd to in NOLA area & who got the order. Also, heard of the Mitsubishi "loyalty" rebate? One person said it was worth up to $1000. My thanks - jed62454
It is the tires. There is another Montero Sport Bulletin Board at www.montero-sport.com with lengthy discussions by MS owners. Check it out. Not only is it the Yokahoma brand but the size of the tire itself. The problem seems to be only on 1999 vehicles though. What I have gotten from technicians at two dealerships is that the profile of the tire is too short and wide for the rim size. ... Read More
Penrose, The advertising fee was added to the $99 under invoice price. I also purchased my wife a 2000 LS two weeks ago so had the opportunity to drive the 3.0 liter. Since hers is a 2WD didn't think it was too underpowered although the 3.5 4WD did have more power. Rpms are also high over 55 mph on the 3.5 liter. To all, The $99 under deal is being offered ...

Just purchased a 2000 Limited 4WD for $99 under invoice. Used the no payments/interest until 2001 deal. Very impressed with the vehicle so far. Think it compares to the 4Runner Limited but for less $$$. Only dissatisfaction I had from the dealer was the $550 adevertising assessment from Mitsubishi tagged on to the price. Doe this sound Kosher? Will probably sell right before payments kick in hoping resale is not too ... Read More
I agree with the fact that Mitsubishi has done an awful job with giving the AWESOME Montero Sport good press. I am the proud owner of the 2000 LS 4WD with leather/CD. Everyone who sees it compliments me on it,and it drives great! I am very pleased, and if Mitsuishi hired a good PR firm, they would sell a hell of a lot more cars. Maybe they should give Burson-Marstellar a ... Read More
I'm very interested in buying a 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport XLS. It looks great not to mention it now has a more powerful engine. I'm 99% sure this is the vehicle I want to be driving. It handles very nicely, the only thing is, in the past it's gotten poor reviews as far as safety, etc. goes. Does anyone know about new ratings or where I could check them out? My ... Read More
I know the 99 Montero Sport received a very negative rating regarding safety standards. Any word if the Mitsubishi company made improvements in this area with the 2000 models?
