Old betty still rolling smoothly

Vehicle: 1991 Mitsubishi Montero

This is posted as a tribute to my old gal now with 208k miles. I feel guilty that I'm now considering replacing her simply to keep up with style....(OK she need tires and ignition switch work too.) Too bad they don't make these anymore. I bought her 1 year old at 9,000 miles. 21 years and 208000 my baby still runs great. Blown engine oil seal at 200k has been the only major issue. Very comfortable ride. Good off-road durability. Still not a squeak in her.

Love this suv like no

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!

A perfect machine

I can't think of any way to improve this vehicle. Even after almost 19 years it still runs like a champ. Add gas and change the oil and it will never let you down. Even with 121k miles it can keep pace with interstate traffic and off-road like it was new. The designer thought of everything. They don't make them like this anymore. I'll only drive a Montero after owning this one.

I love my montero!

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!

When suv's were worth something

Vehicle: 1991 Mitsubishi Montero

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 without modifications!

Have enjoyed 2.5 years with a LS Montero. This is one of the few import vehicles that has enough interior room where I feel comfortable (6'3'). Very practical, have driven on 2000+ mile road trips twice and it has never let me down. This is my daily driver and it used to tow a boat frequently. There is a design flaw with the steering gearbox - very common and expensive repair ($500-$800) but chances may be pretty good this has already been replaced on the earlier models. Love the truck. Has been both a workhorse and earns Range Rover wanna be respect around town for a fraction of the price.

What's New for 1992

An all-new Montero is introduced. The new Montero features new wheels, a new grille, more interesting sheetmetal, more curves around the edges, and a very serious-looking blackout treatment on the formerly chrome accessories. Horsepower is upped but only enough to keep pace with its 125-pound weight gain. Antilock brakes are standard on the LS and optional on the SR model, working in both two- and four-wheel- drive mode.
