2002 Mitsubishi Montero Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I had to step up from a sedan back in '02 to handle kids.
Got this and have never looked back.
Seemed pricey at the time, with the full boat extra package I got, but I've never owned a vehicle in my life that's given me more value back in quality.
I've burned through 5 sets of tires, more oil changes than I can count (it's now starting to take a quart every 5k or so).
I've replaced bearings in the front on both sides and a muffler after 200k.
I've used it hard and it keeps on trucking.
I'll be crossing the 250k threshold in a month or so, God willing. I truly wish Mitsubishi was still making these. I'd get another in a heartbeat.
Lots of head room.
Very comfortable ride.
Nice curb appeal.
There not makin' 'em any more, unfortunately.
The left and rear back blind spots are wicked.
Better mirroring would improve this.
