Review of the 2005 Mitsubishi Montero

  • An old-school sport-ute that excels off-road, but when it comes to overall performance and passenger-carrying ability, it can't match its more modern rivals.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    High-quality interior materials, sharp cabin design, large cargo capacity, excellent off-road capability.

  • Cons

    Serious lack of power compared to rivals, mediocre on-road handling, cramped third-row seat, no side curtain airbags.

  • What's New for 2005

    The Montero receives new 17-inch painted alloy wheels this year.

Love monteros

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Montero Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 5A)

The only gripe I have is this vehicle should be two inches wider and two inches shorter. I am not a boulevard cruiser and use this vehicle to get me to some pretty rough terrain here in Oregon. This is my fourth one and I will snub Mitsubishi for not keeping this line going. It is a tough truck with a quality build and it holds up well on USFS roads and trails, unlike the Endeavor, which cannot clear rocks and ruts. Who supplies the paint for these vehicles? It has a deep finish and holds up to backroad rocks. Good job on the Monteros, Mitsubishi!




Montero #2

Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Montero Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 5A)

The Montero handles like a small car with SUV capabilities. It tows 5000 pounds without a problem. Its third seat is a bit cramped for an adult though. I dislike the spare tire on the tailgate because it makes the trailer hitch difficult to access. I plan to purchase Montero #3 soon.




Great mitsubishi

Our '05 Montero Limited is a great vehicle. It rides like a car. It has plenty of room with great amenities. It gets pretty good gas mileage on the highway, but it is no so good around town. I would recommend it to anyone.
