1998 Mitsubishi Montero Sport LS 4dr SUV


Review

The Montero Sport is perfect for pulling boats, trailers, ect. It is spacious for all five passengers and with all the trunk, rack and hide away spots there's always room to put just about any item. The Build of the Montero is bold, safe. Overall performance is splendid.


Best Features

Features like the rear window wiper is neat to have as well has the foldable center console


Worst Features

Suggest rear air conditioning. Gas mileage (more efficient). 20' Tires.

Review

I bought this vehicle new on 1998 and I did not have any major problems with it. After 150,000 or so, it started to consume about a quart of oil every 2000 miles or so. At 90,000 I had a major maintenance check and so I did at 190,000 (change timing belt, spark plugs, water pump etc). The shop check the engine compression at 190 thousands and it was around 150. They said I could drive it for another 100 thousands miles.


Best Features

Body style, the 4X4 features


Worst Features

Not very stable in curbs, the power steering, gas mileage could be better

Review

This is the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned. If Mitsubishi still made the Montero I would buy one for 2010. This car will not die. I only have 160k but she still runs like the first day I bought her 11yrs ago. A total "underdog" in the world of autos.

Review

The car that I'm currently driving has 156k+. Been passed down through the family since we purchased it new, in 99. It has taken a beating, but still drives pretty good. My opinion it's a well worth it care and a good buy. The car is considered a legend in my book.


Best Features

156k+, back seats reclined a bit, pretty spacious, things a tank


Worst Features

cup holders...move them. better stock audio system, power/heated seats

Great ride on the highway. Excellent leg room in backseat compared to similar size SUVs. Front seats comfortable after hours of driving. Had to replace two broken leaf springs. Radio antenna is broken. Whistling sound at highway speeds. Rear door latch works poorly.


Best Features

Front seats


Worst Features

Relocate cup-holders
