This is one of the better suv's out
there in comparison to it's size
comfort and versatility. I have a
family of four and it gets us all to
where we're going and back in style
and comfort. I live in Minnesota and
the winters can be tough but with this
suv it is just that more enjoyable!!
Great performance when pulling my boat
and great style when going out to
Nov 2011 - I purchased my used 1994 Montero about 4 years ago. It now has 150K on it.
My only concern with it is if I ever have to make a hard turn at high speed...
Other than that, it is rock solid!
It is the type of vehicle that you naturally drive the speed limit in.
Always starts, just reg maint.
It is not just a typical 4 wheel drive.
It also 4whl high, low, locking differential, overdrive for HWY use... all on the fly.
I take it out in the ice (yes, ice) and snow with AT tires on it and pass by with utter ease and confidence other stuck 4x4 pickups, SUVs (nice ones), and jeeps that just can't make it up the hill.
This vehicle is the best utility of its generation!!
The SUV is what it is...a truck and
van blended together..no wood
trim...no extreme comfort. It has the
features you need to get around and
get to places. It has the design and
basics we come to expect as standard
yet it offers great reliability and
piece of mind.
I've had it for 8+ years now and still
enjoy it. It has held up extremely
well. Will soon replace a clutch (5
speed manual) but other than this, it
has had only scheduled
maintenance. It cleans up well -
looks almost new. It is loaded with
features for both off-roading and
going to the opera. The manual box
is the most versatile off-road
transmission on the planet. Engine
shows no sign of aging - an
extremely smooth hummer. It's not
fast, and it definitely handles more
like a truck - but this is a very capable
off-road (and soccer team) seven
seater. If the new models were not
quite so ugly, I'd buy a new one.
