2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport XLS 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


It's been a very solid vehicle. Not a single mechanical issue. It now has 85,000 miles on it. Some complaints I have are that after about an hour of driving I've got to get out and stretch my legs. The seat height is too low. It's definitely not a vehicle designed for a tall person. The roof is also quite low. The side steps aren't really functional so my seat is wearing because I essentially have to slide in and out. It handles great in the snow and does well off road. My sister bought an '03 Jeep grand Cherokee at the same time we bought our MS. They've had nothing but trouble with it. There's something to be said for the simple design of MS. Not a whole lot of gadgets that can break.

Best Features

RELIABILITY. Exterior styling. Infinity sound system. Simplicity of interior design. Cargo space. Factory tires lasted for over 80,000 miles.

Worst Features

More functional side steps. Roomier cockpit. More passing power. Gas mileage goes down the tubes if you drive any faster than 60 mph.
