1995 Mitsubishi Montero LS 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I bought this truck when it was one year old with 20,000 miles on it from Enterprise Car Sales. In the 9 years I have had it, it has proven to be the most reliable car I have ever owned (better than a Toyota, Honda, and Acura). Only minor problems. You expect to replace some of the accessories (belts, pullies, alternator, ets) eventually. I now have 275,000 miles on it, and still my daily drive to work car and weekend have fun in car. I am now getting concerned about the high mileage, and am looking to buy another Montero, probably a slightly newer SR with low mileage. This truck is smaller on the outside (except for height) and gets better gas mileage than my wife's Acura Legend.


Best Features

Looks, comfort, off-road ability, highway cruising comfort, gas mileage, and room to carry lots of stuff inside.


Worst Features

The third row seats are a joke and block the view when not in use. I removed mine.

Review

I have been extremely happy with this vehicle. I purchased it with 52,000 miles. It now has 208,000 miles. In that time, aside from regular maintenance, I have spent rougly $450.00. I have had no mechanical or electrical problems. I have yet to replace a fuse. I have used it heavily off road in the coal mines and back woods of the south. It has gotten me out of situations that I was convinced were impossible to escape. This model is truly one of the last great SUVs. It has classic styling and a very functional interior. It does ride rough but it is a truck and that functionality and durability is what I wanted when I purchased it.


Best Features

Durability, dependability, off road ability and classic styling


Worst Features

none.

Review

Missy the Mitsubishi has been a great car for me. I
wanted it because I needed a vehicle that would
work for me both as a personal vehicle and a flower
shop delivery vehicle. It has gone a many camping
trips and to the mountains, and all over the Denver
metro area. It has done many more floral deliveries
over the last couple of years as it has become far
more business than delivery. She's been great, but
then I have an expensive meticulous mechanic too.


Best Features

Love to sit high, and love the boxiness of it, also it works really great for camping. Though, I am sure all of the new SUV's are probably even better designed for outings!


Worst Features

I am sure they have all been thought of by the manufacturer...maybe figure out how to make it "non tippable", cuz that almost happened once on the highway, or it sure felt like it was going to?

Review

Have had vehicle for 3 1/2 years since
47,704 miles and currently has 103,486
miles. Not only have we had no major
problems but the vehicle has seen very
little regular maintenance outside of
oil changes and I'm not neurotic about
every changing it every 3000 miles.
Only repair has been a passenger side
window regulator. Has been difficult
keepig factory chrome rims in balance.


Best Features

Easy shift on the fly. Locking differential provides excellent traction. Adjustable transmission is useful.


Worst Features

Should be 300-500lbs. lighter, it's a gas hog. Would be nice to be able to lock all four wheels.

Review

It was a fun vehicle to drive. 1 month
after I took ownership, in the garage
for fuel regulator $550.00. I haven't
even owned the veh a year and it is
back in the garage for: crankshaft
pulley. Garage attempted to take bolt
of and it snapped at the head.
Mitsubishi is quoting me $4000.00 for a
new Crankshaft because they won't just
replace the crankshaft. they have to
replace everything they touch why
removing the crankshaft. Good-bye
Mitsubishi for good.


Best Features

4X4 awesome in the snow.


Worst Features

Recall ability, more power, better fuel economy
