Good Bye Old Friend

1990 Mitsubishi Montero RS 4dr SUV 4WD


I drove this SUV off the lot new in June of 1990. It's the only vehicle my two teenage daughters can remember me owning. Original manual clutch, original engine w/ 250,000 plus miles. Still runs but needs an engine rebuild. Replaced the computer once due to the idle servo motor shorting out. That was a $1000 fix and the most costly repair today. I just purchased the new Toyota FJ Cruiser after 17 years. Only time will tell if it can endure as well as the Montero. Hate to see old faithful go.

Best Features

Inclinometer - a real conversational piece! Love the engine. Height, headroom and body all top notch.

Worst Features

Heavier material for the front seats. Worn but no splits.
