2001 Montero Sport ES - AMAZING CAR!!

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

Review

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.

Review

We bought this car used a little over a year ago. It is a 2001. We drove it very little at first, but since August we have driven it everyday locally. Since August, we have had it towed three times and drove it limping into the garage two times. I have spent about $1500 in repairs. The worst thing is driving it with the anticipation of when will it go out again. The car had about 120,000 miles on it when we bought it. We have put about 11,000 miles on it this year (which is a normal average). Very scary driving knowing you will be stuck at one point or another.

I first liked this SUV when my parents had bought one brand new back in 2000, When they got it, it had 12miles, currently has 210+ and still running strong! I was in the market for a new vehicle and came across the same vehicle but a 4X4, it had 102,000 miles, only flaw was the transmission fluid had been contaminated by the lack of knowledge at jiffy lube, I purchased the montero sport and replaced the transmission since i have had NO PROBLEMS! it currently has 197,000 miles, The only thing i have done since is change the motor oil and she is still running strong! I would give it a 5 star rating! I absolutely love my Montero Sport and sad Mitsubishi has stopped making them! =(

150K+ and still going

I bought my Montero Sport back in October of 2001 with 50 miles on it. As a member of the military, I have taken this SUV as far west as the Pacific Ocean and as far east as the city of Atlanta, GA. Any maintenance I've had done on the vehicle was all based on wear and tear. Nothing failed until I was well over 100K miles. I love the vehicle and kind of hate that Mitsubishi did away it.

Review

I just got this SUV after my old station wagon topped the 230,000 mile mark. I was looking for three things: Japanese make, four wheel drive, and lots of cargo room. This car was available for the right price in my area, and only had 55,000 miles on it and one previous owner. It has now become my favorite car ever. It looks great, performs well, and my brother, a professional mechanic, said that it is in amazing shape for a vehicle of its age. It is probably underpowered for towing, but that's not what I wanted it for. It has about the same pickup as my old 4 cylinder Outback, but with the increased size of the car and the 6 cylinder standard, I'd say that's pretty good.

Review

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!

I definitely recommend this car to anyone my baby has 112,000 still going strong, the only bad thing is the space if you are big it's not very spacious, this is the best SUV for trips and snow

without proper maintenance, i've had zero problems with this truck, wish they were still produced i'd buy another. decent gas mileage for SUV; fantastic 4X4, use it on & off road nothing extreme, just fun, it is very easy to live with on day to day basis. i'm gonna install airbags in the rear coils springs so it won't sag so much when pulling my 12X7 foot trailer with two full size motorcycles aboard.

Great Purchase

Review

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.
