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


Review

The Montero is the perfect vehicle for
any situation. It has provided me with
all the requirements needed for driving
an SUV. It has great off road
capabilities and adapts to any
environment very well. The interior is
top quality and the special features
are incredable.


Best Features

Offroad capabilities. Seat position combination posibilities. Top quality. The interior roominess. The extra large sunroof/moonroof. The excellent craftmanship.


Worst Features

Gas mileage.

Review

Now owned 6 mo. and driven 6,000 mi.,
and my opinion - as close to perfect
as most things get! Sure it drinks
gas. Sure it's no Porsche. And sure
it's costly to purchase. What do you
expect? It's a big, heavy, luxury SUV!
It rides beautifully, is
extraordinarily comfortable, has
premium "touch & feel", and is just
plain lovable!! I drove nearly every
SUV built today (Hummer & Cadillac
being the exceptions) before choosing
this gem, and to me it rivaled a
couple and far exceeded the rest. Go
ahead and compare, you'll likely find
this one to be one of the top 5 (top
10 at the least). Nice redesign
Mitsubishi - I love this machine!!!


Best Features

Nearly everything... And don't make me laugh about power, this thing has gobs of low end torque!! Off the line is fine. And if you want high speed passing power, don't buy a big SUV!


Worst Features

Wish the lumbar was about 1" lower. And yes the 3rd seat is basically useless, but I didn't care about it anyway...

Review

Despite all the hype about flip overs.
I've yet to come close to fliping. The
suv is fun to drive. I had my share of
problems, but the only serious issue
was my bearings went after 30K. Heated
seats work well and the car is quiet
and solid.


Best Features

Large moon roof, almost like a convertable


Worst Features

More power in the motor is needed

Review

The car has a noisey bumpy ride.It over
heated at 33000 miles without any
warning.At this time I am batteling with
misubishi they won't cover the claim
because it was a defective thermostate,not
covered under their warranty,and the
extended warranty won't cover because they
say it should be covered under mitsubishi's
5 year power train warranty
I just had the hub bearings
replaced at 40000,miles. my mechanic told
me the car is under engineered with light
wieght parts on a heavy vehicle I also found
out that the dealership makes more money
selling questionable extended warranty's
over better ones. Iv'e spent 4,300 on this car
this year at 40,000 miles


Best Features

seats


Worst Features

engineer for heavy duty,dealers should be more honest about their extended warranty's

Review

Exceptional vehicle. Trouble free with
109,000 miles. Never changed the
tires. I can,t believe how great this
vehicle is. I keep the oil change and
it keeps on gettin. No electrical
issues. No turn over's here and i
really put it to the test.


Best Features

Secure feeling on the road. I wish it had a navigation system for the price. I felt cheated on controls.


Worst Features

Gas mil., shocks, struts and cabin sound. I don't like hearing the road or engine when on the highway.
