2001 Mitsubishi Montero Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


My family bought our 01 Montero used in 02 w/12k mi. My parents used it as a daily driver from 02-05. The bought a Pacifica in 05 and the truck stayed parked in the driveway for over a year.
In 06 I turned 16 and got the truck as my first car.Ive gone from 46k mi to 143k mi in 6 yr. The only issues I had,the rear heater pipes explode and dump all the raidiator's contents onto the road. this can only happen 2 times bc new part is thicker. At 16 with no mechanical experience I replaced the broken pipes for the total of 17$ for both pipes. Also routine fixes for cars over 100k mi, Alternator & Timing belt and oil pump.
Overall, very reliable fun 4x4 ok on gas 16 mpg avg. Love my MITSU

Best Features

Exterior Looks, still looks new. Selectable 4x4 settings. Unstopable off road. Looks far more modern than a 2001 Range rover or Land cruiser.

Worst Features

Sub par interior quality, (scuffed headliner, cracking seats, chronic problem with the LCD display cutting out.) this car needs overdrive.
