Review of the 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport

    Soft suspension, lethargic transmission, sloppy steering.

  • What's New for 2002

    The 2002 Montero Sport receives a few changes and upgrades this year. Four-wheel-drive Montero Sports have a new mode called ALL4 four-wheel drive. This full-time all-wheel-drive mode automatically provides the appropriate traction for most on-road and light off-road situations -- without the driver having to activate anything. Engine choices remain the same, though the 197-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 is now standard on XLS. In terms of features, there's a new appearance package for Montero Sport ES, and packages for XLS have been revised. Mitsubishi has also changed the seat fabrics and included metallic-faced gauges on LS, XLS and Limited. In case you are wondering, last year's XS "special edition" apparently wasn't special enough and has been discontinued.

Great good looking car

Vehicle: 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport ES 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

This car was purchased when my daughter was learning to drive. We liked it so much that we took it on most trips to sporting tournaments, etc. The red color is so pretty going down the road, and we liked the way you could see everything better riding up higher compared to the cars. This cars has been trouble free and we have almost 100K. Nice engine power and ride. My daughter is loving it at college now. It should last her even after that!




Cute suv

The Mitsubishi Montero Sport is great for a young, smaller family. It's very cute, functional and drives nicely. It's only limitation is the lack of backseat room for people 5 feet or taller. The cargo space exceeded everything I ever needed with 3 growing boys. Did I say it is so cute?!




The moby

I wanted a replacement for my Jeep Cherokee Sport. Basic stuff. The Montero Sport ES is indeed pretty basic. No complaint, though. I got what I went after. It's unforunate it has no residual value for those of you expecting to trade on the short term.




Dream car

Vehicle: 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport ES 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I LOVE my Montero Sport!!! I had decided that I would buy myself a M.S. when I graduated in May of 2003 as a college graduation present to myself but with the excellent deals they have had recently went ahead and purchased. I absolutely love it. There is virtually no outside noise, even on the highway, and the power is adequate for my needs. It definitely does not have a "truck feel" and I do quite a bit of driving. I really do enjoy driving now and am the first to volunteer to run errands for the family.




Montero sport - performance is

Vehicle: 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport ES 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

We checked out reviews on the Montero prior to buying. I seemed to notice two common characteristics: best hwy driver, and most sluggish. We are tickled with the way our Montero rides. As far as performance, you could put a Vette, a Mustang Cobra, and a Viper together, and ONE of them is going to be called the "most sluggish!" If you're a good ole' boy who wants to run the mud flaps into the ground back in the holler, than maybe the Montero is not for you! However, if you want a rugged, dependable, family sized, good-looking vehicle that WILL get you from Point A to Point B in an expeditious manner, than the Montero or Montero Sport is a good choice!
