1998 Mitsubishi Montero 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I purchased this SUV last year and it has worked great with no problems.
There is a sound coming from the engine that I will get fixed soon.
It's been a great SUV to have.

Review

Been driving Monteros for 15 years now and have had great reliability. Just blew a head gasket after 193800 miles on a great 1998 model. Sad to hear dealership say it'd cost 5-6000 min to get a rebuilt engine with 87k. I've had great experiences on hwy, beach, back roads and fields. Only thing I'd change would be the alarm system. Buying another brand SUV tonight but if I can find a way to fix my old dog for a few $ I would love to keep her around- I like the look and the ride.


Worst Features

The alarm.

Review

I bought my Montero in 1997. I have over 150,000 miles on it now and it is still in great shape. The 24 valve engine still has a lot of life left in it. Like all Mitsubishis, it smokes from its seals, but with a quart of that stuff Pep Boys sells, the smoke goes away. I put a slightly higher tires, 265/70/15, on it and it drives better. I am so happy with my Montero I bought a second one (a 2006 Limited). It is a great vehicle for the money. I paid $26,000 for mine in 1997. My other choice would be a Toyota 4Runner, but the price was around $5,000 more.


Best Features

The paint still like new and I am too lazy to polish mine.


Worst Features

Go back to the chassis build, the unibody design of the 2006 models is for small cars,

Review

I must admit I didn't read many positive
reviews about this SUV in earlier years
but I new they had given it an overhaul
and the price was right so I bout it.
The bottome line is that I have really
gotten my dollars worth from this car.

I do alot of hunting and the ride is
very "Non-car like" Yet in the field I
was impressed with the 4WD on the fly.
Also, the flexibilty with the back seats
is a big plus.


Best Features

The reliability has been EXELLENT! I have put in a new windshield, battery, brakes, tires, timing belt and other then the regular stuff NOT A THING!!! The body looks like new and it has 125,000 on it. Remarkable Car.


Worst Features

Nothing
