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.

Great purchase

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

I purchased my SUV new as a lease in 2001. After my lease was up, I decided to purchase the truck. It was the best decision I have made on an automobile. I have kept up with the maintenance since day one. I have not had any problems, except the battery. I currently have 113,000 miles as of today 08/04/09. It only gets about 17mpg city, but besides the gas mileage, I really like my automobile.




Disappointed

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

I must say after owning a Honda and a Toyota the quality of the Mitsubishi has been really disappointing. I had the timing belt, front main leak, rear main leak, O2 sensor and Transmission all fail under 65000 miles. I feel that Mitsubishi is a poor product. They suffer from poor customer service, and the book value has a horrible, horrible return when you go to sell it. So I would not recommend this vehicle to anyone who wants longevity.




Great suv!

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

I purchased my Montero Sport with only 27 miles on it and it has just been absolutely wonderful to me! It takes care of me and I most definitely take care of her. It still looks great. I recommend this vehicle to anyone.




Don't buy for looks

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

I really do like my Montero Sport but I had a Nissan Maxima that was 11 years old and I'd do anything to get it back now! The gas mileage is horrible. I suppose that it is OK for an SUV, but not good for someone who drove a car that got about 25-30 mpg! It's fun, looks great, reliability is good too!




Dependable, solid

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

The Montero Sport is not exciting, exotic or remarkable in any way. But it is reliable, flexible transportation. Check used first because the value plummets, but you'll love not going in for service. Has exceeded expectation.

Overall, it's a good investment. Do not expect too much from the car since you are not paying a high price on it.
