2003 Mitsubishi Montero Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 5A)
Just bought a 2003 20th Anniversary Ed. Love it! This thing will get you anywhere and in style too. At a time when luxury SUVs are everywhere, the Montero will still turn heads and boast serious off-road capabilities. All this at half or less than luxury SUV's above it's class.
Styling, 5 speed sportronic shift, active traction control with visible feedback (lights blink to which wheels/axle's are slipping), low range 4x4 w/locking transfer case. Seating for 7, massive sunroof, 6 disc CD changer.
Despite having a stability control system to sense/correct a rollover scenario, I still don't like the risk. It would be nice to see the center of gravity lowered to minimize this risk.
