2003 Mitsubishi Montero Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 5A)
recently purchased used 03 monty ltd
and love it. looked at all and kept
coming back (i also own a 95 monty).
you should know that the land cruiser,
range rover, and monty were made to be
suv's. all others are built on truck
(sequoia, yukon, explorer) or van
chasis (pilot, highlander). if you
want a true suv and cash left over,
consider the montero, its tough but
still drives like a "true" suv should.
outstanding 4 wheel drive system--have
4 settings to choose from and can drive
in 2wd until i need 4wd. this saves
fuel comsumption. don't know why
the "experts" are down on the monty,
has plenty of power and is very
reliable (only tires, brakes, etc., on
great vision when driving--no dead
spots. like sitting up vs. reclined as
in other suv's. has all the features
of my neighbors land cruiser. after he
drove my monty, couldn't believe what i
paid. i get better gas mileage as
well. kids fit well in 3rd row and i
feel safe having them back there.
get 'real' experts to review the monty.
5.6 out of 10 is absurd! has plenty of
power. if you want to tow a motor
home, buy a truck not an suv. you
won't be able to put adults comfortably
in 3rd row but kids fit fine.
