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.

Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport 3.5XS 2WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I traded in my Ranger Pick-Up to purchase this Mitsu - it had 60k miles on it when I bought it, but it was in immaculate condition. I now have 151k miles and it still looks great! Runs fantastic and have only ever had one mechanical problem (bad gaskets at the base of the spark plug, causing loss of compression.) I bought it because I needed something to haul my drums around - this thing has more cargo space than the Space Shuttle! So handling my kit (all in road cases) was no problem at all!

Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport 3.5XS 2WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

3.5liter engine has good power and acceleration. Very dependable; no problems at all up to 52k. Room in the front seats is fine for my wife who is 5'6" but for me --6 ft it is a little cramped on long distance driving.




Love my xs!

Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport 3.5XS 2WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I have had my 2001 Montero Sport 3.5XS for almost four years now and I love it! I have had absolutely ZERO problems with this SUV and it is still just as fun to drive and sharp to look at as the day I bought it.




My 3.5xs rocks!

Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport 3.5XS 2WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I was surprised when I saw the (currently) low 7.2 rating. I've had my MS 2 years now and love it more than ever. I have yet to see another SUV (except for a much more expensive Cadillac Escalade) that I think is sexier or cooler-looking!




My ms xs kicks butt!

Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport 3.5XS 2WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I love my MS XS! I've had it for over a year now and have not had one problem (knock on wood) other than a factory recall which was fixed promptly. Sure, you don't get great gas mileage, but what do you want from a 4,000 pound SUV. It has just enough power, rides so smooth for a truck and looks better than any other SUV around (in my opinion)!




Unique high quality suv

No Problems Excellent So Far. It is truck based will not ride like a car. It's funny that people think trucks should ride like cars!! Love it.
