1999 Mitsubishi Montero SUV 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

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.


Favorite Features

3 L 24 valve engine, hydraulic adjustable shocks, suspension, 13 grease fittings on the front end just like the '91, rain gutters, super grade leather seats, final year of the platform with bowed-out fenders around wheel wells and integrated running boards functional to keep debris down.


Suggested Improvements

Make the third row jump seats easily removable (not just flip up to the sides) for maximum cargo capacity.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Real 4x4, cargo height! (I can't find a new vehicle as all are made for short-wide people now), heated leather, real gauges, huge moon roof, towing, comfort, Infinity sound system, looks, and fuel economy.


Suggested Improvements

Bring this version back!!!!!!! PLEASE!! The only thing I would change is have a separate hanger for the full-size spare - the extra weight affects the hinges over time.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

High-end leather, wood trim and creature comforts inside ... but the 4x4 transmission and spirit that have often won the grueling Paris-Dakkar rally!


Suggested Improvements

Great torque, towing capacity and rock climbing ability. Could use just a little more punch in on-road mountain climbs. Otherwise ... great vehicle.

Review

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 fun.


Favorite Features

Very roomy inside and sits high that gives you a great view. Feels you are in a luxeury car for much less money. Hydraulic power jack, full set of tools inside the back hatch. Seven seats. Big leg room. Cool air conditioning. Very powerful, at least in the city.


Suggested Improvements

Windows need to be more airtight. A little bumpy compares to a Pathfinder or 4-Runner. Need a place to hold sun glasses.
