2002 Mitsubishi Montero Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Looks - tonka toy look sort of grows on you over time interior - a step above most of the other mid-price suv's. reclining back seats great for kids. 3rd row completely disappears, but only good for very occasiuonal kid use quality - too many issues - broken seals in awd system, breaks that won't release, power- terrible, the reason you ulimately regret the purchase advice - by an MDX or step up to a Land Cruiser

Review

We spent months looking for other SUV's and really only ended up at the Bigger's Mitsubishi for the cool FREE demo CD. After driving the Outlander to seal the deal on the CD, we looked at the Montero Limited and two hours later ended up driving it home. We were sold on the room for the money!


Favorite Features

Room, Room, Room... Excellent cab visibility! You can see Kansas from Illinois!!! Cool Memphis blue color option, HUGE sunroof, great sound system, and the tool kit even has a flashlight; eat your heart out, all you no flashlight havin' gas guzzlin' SUV's.


Suggested Improvements

Power, Power, Power... Would like to see a 6 disc changer, a "real" 3rd row and a tilting sunroof.

Review

This is my 3rd montero but will probably be my last. The vehicle is unpowered and has lot of engine noise, the doors won't stay open, tires make for poor handling, and you feel and hear every little bump in the road. The whole dash vibrates significantly and rattles. The car seems to have very little insulation to keep out highway noise from noisy tires. Taken car to dealer about rattles, etc. but they say it normal. If this is normal I'll put my money elsewhere, maybe. I probably can't though because I've had the car nine months and it is worth about $14,000.00 less than what I paid originally. My wifes 02 gmc envoy blows the montero away.


Favorite Features

looks, sports shift, large sunroof, tall seating position, open passenger compartment


Suggested Improvements

Better tires, quieter cabin, more stable suspension, less rattles, more power, more solid feeling vehicle, more insulation to keep out noise

Review

No problem at all with stability or power issues. As nice as it looks, this is a real off-road vehicle, not an enlarged 'autobahn' sportscar like the X5. The steering and braking systems are a true pleasure to use, along with the Sportronic gear shifter. The field- of-view is outstanding. Unbelievably roomy for passengers in back(forget that 3rd row seat, use the space for lots of gear). Fog lights and big windows work great in low visiblity conditions.


Favorite Features

VERY comfortable seats and steering wheel,swing-out door in back,large windows and mirrors,LOTS of leg room,great dashboard design.Extremely quiet ride with windows closed.HUGE sunroof.Compass,miles left in fuel tank,outside temp display.Audio combo.


Suggested Improvements

Maybe turbocharge that V6 engine, add ultrasonic back-up warning device(good for short drivers)
