traded in a ford explorer(maint cost too high) this vehicle rides & handles better than the explorer, has better take off, better fuel economy, and hopefully i won't be at the repair shop every six weeks




Having fun driving it!

I traded a Full size SUV in for my Montero Sport and in the few days I have had it ,it's been like Heaven. The pick up in it is great.It is everything I had and more, minis being able to seat 8 people. I was worried about going from a big SUV to a smaller one But after driving my Montero Sport I won't go back to the big Suv. The truck is a 5 star to me with good pick up , easy to handled, and alot of fun to drive!!!! My kids think we are the coolest family in town in our Montero Sport!!!! And no more 42 gallon gas tank to fill!!!

We really enjoy our new Montero Sport. We traded our Nissan Altima for it and now I will never buy a sedan again. It's fun to drive in that it has good power for a big truck and the ride is surprisingly smooth. I would recommend the bigger engine (3.5 L vs. 3.0 L).
