Nice but not nice enough by Bummin02 on 07/23/2008. Trim: 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport XLS 4WD, Owned 4 years.
Pros: The vehicle looks sharp and has a nice looking interior, however not on par for the price tag compared to competition. It performs decent around town and in winter conditions.
Cons: Highway driveability is subpar. The high profile of the vehicle makes highway driving a nervous situation. Insufficient power for towing comfortably. Good luck trading one off!
Overall review: We have owned a 2002 Montero Sport for the past 4 years. We have owned 5 Explorers, 2 Durangos, 3 S-10 Blazers, a Honda Passport, a '99 Blazer, and a handful of cars and pickups in the past 20 years. The Montero was purchased to replace the '99 Blazer, which we felt had seen its better days. It was a spur of the moment purchase and a regretted one at that. The vehicle gets blown around by every gust of wind while driving down the road and even in the absence of wind feels like it is "tracking" odd. Last winter a group of friends and I took a ski trip starting in a town 200 miles away from my family's home. The initial leg of the trip was done in a 1992 GMC Sierra extended cab because our gear didn't fit in our cars. The final 300 mile leg was done in the Montero. Although the GMC was crowded with 4 big males, I would have preferred it to the Montero. The fuel economy wouldn't have varied too much either. The 3.5's mpg is nearly as poor as a 5.7 and lacks the power.

A Driving Pleasure by head_97racing on 12/09/2002. Trim: 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport ES 4WD, Owned 1 year.
Pros: After having a pick-up truck for 2 years this vehicle was a treat to drive. There is tons of room and it is quite comfortable. Is especially love the storage place on the "ceiling" for sunglasses, gate key and garage door opener.
Cons: Very pleased with it!
Overall review: I love driving this vehicle. I highly recommend it for anybody looking for a SUV. It looks great inside and outside. I would definately consider getting another Montero Sport when I trade in this one!

A Great Valued SUV for the Buck by Monterosportdude from Lutherville, Maryland on 08/27/2002. Trim: 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport LS 4WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: For an All Wheel Drive vehicle, it handles very well. Gas mileage is good for 20 MPG on the Highway. Rides very nice. Lots of room.
Cons: Engine could be a bit more bigger. This one has 3.0 V6. Should offer the 3.5 V6 in this package as well.
Overall review: This is a great vehicle if you don't want to spend a whole lot on an SUV. Most other mid-size SUV's are over $30,000. This one is well worth the money even though it's under $30,000.
