My Montero Sport by Pat- Fl & NY on 02/25/2012. Trim: 1999 Mitsubishi Montero Sport XLS 4WD, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: Everything. I have never had any operational problems of any kind. The car still looks great. I wish Mitsubishi still made a 2012 version, but for whatever reason, it stopped this model. I'm looking for a 2012 small SUV that has some of the many features I have in this car. Think the Ford Escape & Jeep Liberty are my only options using this criteria. Oh well, all these companies make things to suit their specs, and then you choose. Just like our political system, I'm afraid.
Overall review: It's a 10 in every regard.

Buyer Beware by Missy on 10/10/2011. Trim: 1999 Mitsubishi Montero Sport LS 2WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: NOTHING,bought on a Friday from Hub Mitsubishi on Hwy 290 in Northwest Houston Tx. and broke on a Saturday on the side of the road.
Cons: EVERY THING, DID NOT HAVE IT LONG ENOUGH TO ENJOY. PLUS Hub Mitsubishi on 290 Northwest Tx. does not give refund even on new cars. So buyer beware because this vehicle and company might leave you on the side of the road.
Overall review: Life Lesson even at this age but I did not know this was the age I can sell you a lemon on purpose and you are stuck with it. Beware of Mitsubishi especially the one on 290 Nothwest Houston Tx. If this is policy then integrity means nothing to Mitsubishi!

Any Takers by Trae in SC on 07/20/2009. Trim: 1999 Mitsubishi Montero Sport XLS 2WD, Owned 8 years.
Pros: Interior space is great, ground clearance great. Pretty good reliability, but does require (as all cars do) keeping up with the maintainance. This is wife's car and its does all the kid toting and grocery getting very well. It's been on many trips from Michigan to Florida and tons of places in between. Not too good in the snow or off-road due to only RWD and no limited slip...one wheel drive in the snow...yikes.
Cons: Short list- Ride rough, Brakes weak, Steering sloppy over powered, Power slow, Cup Holders aweful and broken, A/C weak, MPG should be GPM. It was 1500 to replace the cam-bore seals, 300 for brakes, A/C is on the fritz- 1500 for new parts installed. Don't look at the off center crash test ratings...scary.
Overall review: Overall would not recommend this truck, but we can't seem to justify getting rid of it. Fits our space needs and it's paid for. After writing this maybe we should get rid of it...any takers...lol.

Firefighter Special! by Tom from Richmond, Va. on 06/11/2005. Trim: 1999 Mitsubishi Montero Sport XLS 4WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The styling of this vehicle is excellent. I am a volunteer firefighter in a rural setting, and the 4 wheel package comes in handed sometimes. It is roomy, and has nice interior.
Cons: cup holders! What a joke. over the air/radio controls is horrible. Not a lot of power of the line. It rides rough, but it is a truck, not a caddy...
Overall review: I own an 87 montero, as well as the 99. I love them both. From experience, if you do all of the recommended scheduled mantainence, then you will have a great truck. I think most people that have trouble with this truck have not changed timing belts, flushed transmission, or changed oil regularly. This is a solid truck.

Rubber Neck by JC3513 from Orlando, FL on 07/12/2004. Trim: 1999 Mitsubishi Montero Sport LTD 2WD, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Personally, in regards to looks it gets no better than this! This is a truck, not a watered down mid-size SUV of today. (very masculine and I love that) The Infinity stereo sys is pretty nice to be stock.
Cons: The 200 hp really is good, but for those w/o the
Overall review: Excellent vehicle!
