Best Car We've Ever Owned
By 8YR Montero Owner on


1996 Mitsubishi Montero LS 4dr SUV 4WD


I really regret selling this car. We
had it for 8 years and it was the best,
most reliable, most comfortable vehicle
we have ever owned. It worked
flawlessly, and only ever had very minor
problems with it. I would highly
recommend a Montero to anyone, and am
considering buying another. The vehicle
I replaced it with just doesn't come
close to the Montero. It's very capable
both off road and on. I've driven this
back and forth from Los Angeles to
Vancouver multiple times as well as used
it for a daily commuter. I can't say
enough good things about this car. If
you're in the market for an SUV put the
Montero on your short list.

Best Features

Very comfortable even with cloth interior. Roomy, can hold 7 passengers and loads of gear. Amazing stereo. Most reliable car I've ever had.

Worst Features

Make the rearmost seats completely removeable. In their folded-up state they can block your view of other vehicles when you do a shoulder check. The simple solution to this is to fold the backs down and leave the seats on the floor.
