I put 235,000 miles on my '91 Montero. Sold it in 2009 due to rust but it still ran good with excellent Michelins on it. It went to a good home and the guy who bought it drives it daily. The '99 Montero is a definite step up from the '91. Had to put Bilstein shocks and John Baker Performance Products heavy duty springs on the back of the '91 to keep it tight. The '99 has hydraulic adjustable shocks. The '91 3L engine was underpowered. The '99 3.5 L 24 valve engine takes care of that. Larger wheels on the '99. Intended to have my 16-year-old drive the '99. But while driving it the 430 miles home from the dealership I had to keep it and find her something else.

I've owned many vehicles over the years (more than 20 cars/trucks). This is, by far, the best vehicle EVER created for my needs. There has not been one mechanical/electrical issue with the truck; and I use it! I've camped IN it during heavy rains; the seats can fold down into a comfy bed. I've packed 3 adult bikes in the back without taking the wheels off, it's hauled over 1,000 lbs. of flagstone in the back. I've gone well into the woods without roads, hauling two kayaks and a canoe on top. And, cleaned-up, it is the sportiest/sexiest/manly-non-soccer-Mom vehicle one could want. They must have built mine wrong because I get 20 city and 26 hwy. I've checked it over and over. True 22 mph ave.

I finally began shopping for a new
vehicle this month, but have been
reluctant to spend the $40-50k it
would take to equal what I already
have paid for in this '99 Montero with
all the options. Well-built, reliable,
all the comforts, more room than
most ... and with a little care, it
still looks new, despite occasional
the high alpine adventures! I looked
at an '05 Toyota Land Cruiser today.
My Montero is same size, most features
(except DVD navigation) and I paid
less than 60% of what the Cruiser goes
for. Good value all around. Hard to
part with this good buy.

This SUV has a spectaculor look from
the outside. The one I bought has
every features you can think of for
much less price than a 4-Runner.
Leather seats, power seat, sunroof,
Infiniti sound system with a 10-CD
changer, power mirror, 4x4, switchable
shock level, hydraulic jack, portable
light, a full set of tools inside the
back door. Just remember this SUV is
full size with three rows of seats, a
total of 7 seats. It is so roomy
inside. Much bigger than Pathfinder or
4-Runner. Driving it is just so much
