This is my third and oldest Montero. I trust the brand to buy a 20 year old copy with 160,000 miles. Everything works like new. Its 143 horses must be Clydesdales. The view through the tall windows is commanding. Only drawbacks (others mention these): Driver's seat does not go back quite far enough and radio controls are far below the dash. Gas mileage is fair. It helps to know where to get parts. A junk yard or one of several online forums will keep this truck going at least another five years. There are lots of prior Montero owners out there who come up to the car and smile.

I am the third owner of this Montero LS. It has 205000 on it as of this week and it can still take off from the line. I bought this truck to use in winter since my main car is my baby and I don't like to drive it in snow. I drive the truck daily now from autumn til summer and it is great. The truck was in no way properly maintained by its previous owner but still runs like a peach. I will be doing pretty much a full engine and electrical rebuild in summer of 09 and will do some things to the surface rust to make the truck look like new.

This is a very reliable SUV. I bought it used
with 44K miles and it now has 175K. The only
repair I've made was for valvue cover oil leaks
and the starter.
The first tune up was done at 100k. It burns
about a quart of oil every 1K miles now. A
great rig for a responsible driver.

We are the orginal owners...now have

new rings, new head, 3rd oil pump.

give to our 16 year old son. This is
the only car he has known...Have been
to Quebec twice in the past two years
in it. It is very tough built and
