When we bought our first Montero in 1989 we were so thrilled with everything about it! People would actually stop us and ask what type of vehicle it was. Unfortunately, a few years later we were involved in an accident which totaled our beloved SUV. Remarkably we suffered not one injury...the car was amazing in how it protected us. Ended up with our 91 immediately after. We still have this car and we are now giving it to our 16 year old son to drive to school. Have had no problems EVER with this vehicle. Today we had new shocks put on and a new stabilizer bar. All windows, ac, original radio etc. are all still working fine. Had a problem with the horn once...will drive this Monty to her death!

Well 151K miles later and she's still running. The A/C quit last week (bad in Florida) and the blinkers stopped blinking yesterday. I bought her in 2002 w/ 102K. I've just had so much fun, I'd love to keep her running forever. I actually got upset that I had to start shelling out some money for repairs in 2004, but DUH..it had 120K and was 13 yrs by then! Sadly I think her time is nearing. In the 6 years of ownership, I only had it not start on me ONCE! Geez what am I thinking, why am I considering a new vehicle? I love this SUV. Oh yeah I remember now, it's not cheap to get them fixed!

after owning many 4x4's, this 91
monty is my favorite of all of them.
it's unpretentious, get-down-to-
business approach and style are the
best. it's everything the newer "gen-
x" SUV's (like the Xterra, etc) wanna
be. amazingly reliable. 4x4 system is
unstoppable. this winter i have pulled
an explorer & two blazers out of the
snow, and last summer my LAND ROVER
GOT STUCK IN THE MUD & the monty
pulled it out! the air ride drivers
seat is great on my back, and the
cargo and cabin area make anything do-
able and haulable. manual
transmission makes it fun and less
sluggish. up to 33" tires can fit
The slow-selling two-door Montero is dropped in favor of the popular four-door. Base models are no longer available with an automatic transmission. RS models now come standard with an automatic. The top-end LS model is available with a manual or automatic transmission.
