Edmunds' Expert Review

vehicle overview

Marketed since 1983, Mitsubishi's fullsize sport utility ranks as an old-timer in its field, though the current four-door, seven-passenger version has only been around since '92. This year, Mitsubishi's veteran mountain machine has one less paint color to choose from-Tropical Green Pearl is discontinued.

Powered by a 3.5-liter, 200-horsepower V6 engine, the Montero moves quickly when asked to do so. ActiveTrac four-wheel drive can be shifted "on the fly," or set up to operate all the time and a variable shock-absorber system has three settings: hard, medium and soft. Prior to last year, Monteros could tow as much as 4,000 pounds, but the current rating is 5,000 pounds. Standard equipment on the Montero includes antilock brakes, air conditioning, cruise control, a leather-wrapped tilt steering wheel and AM/Fm stereo with cassette. A CD player and a power sunroof are available with the Luxury Package.

The Montero is an interesting blend of gee-whiz gadgetry, luxurious conveniences, go-anywhere capability and unique styling. While it is true that all this cool stuff comes at a premium, buyers considering other luxury sport-utility vehicles will want to drop by the Mitsubishi dealer and consider this one as well.

1999 Highlights

Nothing changes on the Montero this year, but one less paint color is available.

2nd Gen Pajero is the best 4wd Montero.
defenderone,05/16/2015
I have to consciously analyze this 4wd vehicle on all weather & terrain condition & use the appropriate Super Select 4wd to give an honest, without kidding myself review. It is AWESOME!! Believe me coming from an 05 Jeep TJ, I love everything about this Pajero, Montero whatevero! Comfy on the rockies like your on hoola hoops. You have to know the limits, yeah! or else you'll be swimming up or yelling Geronimoooooo!!
A Land Cruiser at Fraction of the Price
quandarypeak,10/31/2004
I finally began shopping for a new vehicle this month, but have been reluctant to spend the $40-50k it would take to equal what I already have paid for in this '99 Montero with all the options. Well-built, reliable, all the comforts, more room than most ... and with a little care, it still looks new, despite occasional the high alpine adventures! I looked at an '05 Toyota Land Cruiser today. My Montero is same size, most features (except DVD navigation) and I paid less than 60% of what the Cruiser goes for. Good value all around. Hard to part with this good buy.
The Best Vehicle Ever!
Stone,06/12/2009
I've owned many vehicles over the years (more than 20 cars/trucks). This is, by far, the best vehicle EVER created for my needs. There has not been one mechanical/electrical issue with the truck; and I use it! I've camped IN it during heavy rains; the seats can fold down into a comfy bed. I've packed 3 adult bikes in the back without taking the wheels off, it's hauled over 1,000 lbs. of flagstone in the back. I've gone well into the woods without roads, hauling two kayaks and a canoe on top. And, cleaned-up, it is the sportiest/sexiest/manly-non-soccer-Mom vehicle one could want. They must have built mine wrong because I get 20 city and 26 hwy. I've checked it over and over. True 22 mph ave.
Mint 1999 Montero To Replace My 1991
Mr. Montero,08/11/2010
I put 235,000 miles on my '91 Montero. Sold it in 2009 due to rust but it still ran good with excellent Michelins on it. It went to a good home and the guy who bought it drives it daily. The '99 Montero is a definite step up from the '91. Had to put Bilstein shocks and John Baker Performance Products heavy duty springs on the back of the '91 to keep it tight. The '99 has hydraulic adjustable shocks. The '91 3L engine was underpowered. The '99 3.5 L 24 valve engine takes care of that. Larger wheels on the '99. Intended to have my 16-year-old drive the '99. But while driving it the 430 miles home from the dealership I had to keep it and find her something else.

Should I lease or buy a 1999 Mitsubishi Montero?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
