2002 Mitsubishi Montero Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Hi folks! These Monteros are really great SUVs! They are very stylish. We put 67K miles on ours without a single problem. Their seats are roomy & it is loaded with features. Some Hondas need tranny work, some Toyota engines have sludge issues, some Nissans need frequent sensors, but we have had Mitsubishis since 1983 & they are so trouble-free. The ride was choppy & unnerving though. Power is adequate if you don't tow, but underpowered a bit if you do. Mitsubishi is under appreciated & they build an outstanding vehicle!
Style! Wood grain, mesh, curves, great stereo. Lots of comfort features too.
Need a more stable ride. CONSUMER REPORTS RUINED THEIR CHANCES FOR SUCCESS BY SAYING THAT THESE WERE TIPPY. This was unfortunate but true. Improvements came in 2003. They really need at least 240 hp too.
