2003 Mitsubishi Montero XLS 4WD 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
Looked at lots of SUV's and chose the
Montero for all of the standard
features that seem
to be options on the others...which
made the price tag very comparable. I
got the XLS with the touring package.
I live on a mountain and the Montero
performed unbelievably during a recent
snowstorm. I literally drove straight
up the mountain around stuck cars and
trucks as if there was no snow at all.
The infinity sound system sounds great
and the sunroof is HUGE! I especially
like the 'escaine' seating surfaces,
whch can best be described as
perforated suede. I will update my
review, but so far I woould definately
recommend this vehicle to anyone.
All of the interior features are top
notch, but my favorite overall feature
is the reliability in poor road
conditions. This vehicle is very sure-
footed and can go where alot of
Hmmm, this is a catch 22, but if I
would have it my way I would have a
bigger engine and better gas mileage.
Wouldn't that be an engineering feat?!?
