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


Review

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!


Favorite Features

I like how the Montero is a tough 4WD vehicle that gets me to tough terrain here in the NW and holds up extremely well. It has no defects and tough paint. It is a well built vehicle.


Suggested Improvements

It should have a better audio system and wider tires. It needs to be two inches shorter and two inches wider. Give it more storage in the rear and sides.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

The 4WD, third seat, reliable engine, and free maintance for 40,000 miles.


Suggested Improvements

Remove the spare tire from the tailgate.

Review

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.

Review

The Mitsubishi Montero has no power for towing. Even small trailers are a project. Towing a single axle with 2 small ATVs we get 6 miles to the gallon on the freeway. Tthis truck is fun to drive and great off road, but if you try to tow anything you will be very dissappointed.


Favorite Features

The interior features.


Suggested Improvements

Improve the very poor gas mileage - the Montero is severely underpowered.

Review

I love my Montero very much. It is really fun to drive. It has great cargo space. It has very comfortable seating. It has a very good stereo.


Favorite Features

Power everything and the wood grain inteior.


Suggested Improvements

The only concern I have is that it should have more horse power(like more 40 hp) and more options like a navigation system for those who like to travel (like I do). Besides all that It's a outstanding SUV.
