Average Car - Bad Company by UpsetMitsuOwner on 05/01/2001. Trim: 1997 Mitsubishi Montero Sport LS 2WD, Owned 5 years.
Pros: Good looking vehicle. Very comfortable. Rear storage compartments work well to hide custom stereo equipment.
Cons: Mitsubishi is a terribly ran company. They put out a decent vehicle but it isn't worth it. I have been fighting with them for over a year to get some issues resloved with my vehicle. Not to mention the front drink holders... try adjusting the radio with a Coke in the holder. It won't happen. Thats just an example. Also the car is WAY underpowered for how much it weighs. I couldn't even imagine how bad the performance is on the 4-cylinder.
Overall review: Again, average to below average vehicle. But Mitsubishi is certainly a company that I will NEVER do business with again. And everybody that asks me how I like my car gets the same story. Don't buy it.

Worth every Penny. by SixMxiS from Hawai'i on 03/06/2005. Trim: 1997 Mitsubishi Montero Sport LS 4WD, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Stylish, reliable, and worth every penny. I have 140,000 miles and still going strong. I take care of it and it takes care of me. I bought it in '01 but it feels like new.
Cons: The 4x4 Low gear is not the best. I like the 4x4 gearing on the Tacomo trucks better. Front seat not made for tall people.
Overall review: This SUV has everything that I want in a car. Fully loaded, 4x4, standard, spare tire in the back, a '97 but people still think it's a new car.
