I have a 1995 Montero LS with 200,000 and still going strong.
Oil leak and timing belt fixed, purrrsss like a kitten.
Awesome rig in the winter!
Also pulls jet ski's in the summer!
I NEVER want to get rid of it...EVER!!

I've only owned my 95 Montero for a year and have been quite satisfied.
I really appreciated the roomy interior, the fold up rear seats, and the low-end torque.
It climbed steep muddy hills like crazy.
It was bit top heavy so you didn't want to get too sideways with it but it definitely earned its keep off-road.
I put on a new timing belt, new alternator (fouled from leaking oil, I think), fixed the oil leaks at the cam seal and put on some beautiful 31x10.5 Bighorns.
Very nice, looked sharp, and did what I asked it to do.
Just sold it this last week because of fuel prices.
Sorry to see the 14-15 mpg in town.
18-19 on the highway was okay.
At $4/gal. it was tough to justify.

This car was bought as a leftover demo with 2000 miles on it. It now has over 240,000 trouble free miles. Keeping it away from the dealer has been the key. It has only needed tires, fluids, one battery and brakes all of which I have done myself. After 220,000 miles, I got a bolt-on hitch and started towing with it with no problem. It is still my everyday driver and has never let me down.
The Montero LS gets a more powerful V6 that offers a 26-horsepower boost over last year's marginal 151-horsepower rating. Towing capacity increases to 5,000 pounds for all models. Tricky electronic shock absorbers return to the Montero SR's standard equipment list, letting drivers choose between soft, medium or hard setting depending on their preferences.
