Pros: 20 years in my hands... I never will sell this MONTERO Never. never never... This indestrutible toy, never die. Just don't expect a rocket... Is the father of the modern suv's If you are looking for a green car... this is not the one. 17 mpg always... h or city... I have this baby from the very first mile. MOTERO RULES!!! 4doors Si buscas un vehiculo TONKA este es el que buscas. NO muere nunca... y se arregla con una miseria... el motor 3.0L es el mismo de dodge Caravan consigues las piezas donde sea... disfruta el 4x4. y el monte.... location PUERTO RICO... no la vendo... de aqui pal junker/ o para aplastarla.
Cons: It's not a rocket... It's an 4x4 thats runs, better than a car...
Overall review: the most trustable vehicle ever build... It, like big TONKA... Never die.

The beast has entered the building by Still Alive and Kickin Connecticut on 07/15/2004. Trim: 1989 Mitsubishi Montero 4-Door 4WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: It is very roomy inside. Seats are upright and comfortable especially the drivers seat. Plenty of sunshine with oversized windows. Fun rugged ride. Great acceleration, good sturdy build, secure built like a tank!! Demands respect from tiny sedans and newer Montero's!
Cons: No airbags No coffee mug holder Wide turns Radio is too low Very boxy and not aerodynamic
Overall review: Buy it and enjoy. 10

Can't Do Better for $$$ by An MSN Autos Consumer on 11/21/2003. Trim: 1989 Mitsubishi Montero SP 2-Door 3.0L 4WD, Owned 7 years.
Pros: Over 250K miles, much abuse, off-road, high speed highway, poor maintenance; and it runs still!!! Indestructable, easy to like. I bought another (1990)!!! Great off-road.
Cons: Not flashy, no drag racer...
Overall review: Excellent experience with this vehicle considering use, mileage and maintenance (lack thereof). Does everything asked of it. Phenominal off-road!. Great load capacity, speed, relative economy. Parts getting hard to find. Liked it so much I bought another similar (1990) model.

Is that a Land Rover Discovery coming over that hill? by Jim from NY on 01/27/2002. Trim: 1989 Mitsubishi Montero LS, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Great suspension/off-road ability, quality construction, very reliable transmission, roomy interior for cargo/passengers, nice features (cruise, A/C, etc.), very nice off-road package (headlight washers, LSD, skid-plates), fair gas mileage, reliable to reach 175k without an issue
Cons: engine could have more horses
Overall review: Vehicle is built EXACTLY as intended. Extremely rugged and durable off-road performance combined with very capable on-road features. 125,000 miles and nary a problem (with regular maintenace). Its reputation is strong from most who own one and the styling is Land-Rover'esque (if you squint a little)..too bad there are so few
