Back in 1989 around october I saw this montero RS with 5 speed 4 door silver in color at the dealer. Got a great deal. 17,500 that was new, 20 years ago. Will I buy another Montero? YES this thing will not DIE!!! Have about 438,000 miles. The body has no rust, the paint so so, parts 2 clutch one fly wheel, one transmission at 365000, other than this just small parts.

I drove this SUV off the lot new in June of 1990. It's the only vehicle my two teenage daughters can remember me owning. Original manual clutch, original engine w/ 250,000 plus miles. Still runs but needs an engine rebuild. Replaced the computer once due to the idle servo motor shorting out. That was a $1000 fix and the most costly repair today. I just purchased the new Toyota FJ Cruiser after 17 years. Only time will tell if it can endure as well as the Montero. Hate to see old faithful go.

I am the original owner and have enjoyed my 1990 Montero so much I just put in a new "factory" interior. The vehicle has 197,000 miles on it. It is quite difficult to find OEM interior trim parts. Someone should start a salvage yard for 82-91 Monteros so we will always be able to find parts.

I bought this vehicle to drive for 2-3
years and replace when I found a better
SUV.I'm still looking for that better
one.I have never broken down or been
stuck that the 4X4 come through.If the
other 11 automobiles I have owned over
the past 13 years had performed only
half as well as the Montero I would
have been delighted.Overall fantastic

it's very reliable, never get stuck,
look very good, the only modifications
I done to mine, was the superwinch
manual locking hubs, 16" tires,
bushguard, remote starter, Yakima roof
racks. The engine and the transmission
are just perfect.
