Review of the 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport

  • A mid-packer in the mid-size SUV arena.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Enthusiastic 3.5-liter V6 on Limited and XS, attractive inside and out, comfortable front seats.

  • Cons

    Overly soft suspension, lethargic transmission, sloppy steering.

  • What's New for 2001

    Because the Montero Sport underwent an update last year, this midsize SUV pretty much remains static for 2001. You can now get the base level ES trim in a 4WD configuration, and later this year, the XS trim level debuts, with the 3.5-liter V6 from the pricey Limited model. A Lower Anchor Tether Child (LATCH) restraint system comes standard, and the light trucks meet LEV standards.

2001 montero sport es -

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport ES 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

BOUGHT BCUZ: I bought this car because it was the right price, I got it when it was about 4yrs old, and they wanted less than $8,000 for it, sold cheap because the young girl who it was bought for - thought it was ugly & not sexy, she wanted a little car. AMAZING: Other than buy a new car battery after 4 years, do the brakes & Oil, and change an O2 sensor for DEQ - this car has ran like a champ with little to no down time in the mechanic shop. I've had an accident or 2 and it has held up amazingly well, paint looks perfect - body barely has a scratch, and navigates like a dream still. Yup its ugly but my wallet loves it.




...a great bargain overall

Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport ES 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I had a choice: pay a 16k balloon payment to keep my beloved 4-runner (with 96k miles) after its lease was up, or pay another $1500 and get a brand new montero with no miles. To most it would be a no-brainer, but the day I turned in my 4-rnr, my eyes got a little watery. 6 years and 110k mi. Later, I still think fondly of the Toyota, but if you have to "settle" for another Japanese brand, I have to recommend the montero. With the exception of replacing the steering column at 60k (right when the warranty ran out) I have not had any Major problems with this vehicle. Yes, the gas mileage sucks, but this truck is now a valued family member, & I'll miss it when I find a diesel car that suits me.




Great truck

I have had my Montero Sport since it was new. It now has 100,000 miles on it and besides brakes and tires it has never had any problems. I also use mine to tow, and the 3.0L engine was never an issue for me while towing.




Love my suv!

I have had my Mitsubishi Montero Sport for 4 1/2 years and have had a great experience with it. I maintain my vehicle, which helps in keeping maintenance costs down. It is spacious, comfortable, and not boxy. It's a great SUV for the price.




Best suv per$
