"I have owned this vehicle for over 10 years and put nearly 200,000 miles on it. I have not always kept up with the oil changes on time, but I have had no problems. It burns a little oil, but as long as I check it regularly, it is fine. Hate to see it go, but time to update. Love my Montero Sport."

"Have driven this vehicle for 40,000 miles. No major repairs. Only maintenance, and minor repairs, most significant replaced the O2 sensors. Preforms as expected for an older V6, good pick up and climbs with 4WD pretty well. Gas at 14 - 18 MPG. Over all I'd do it again."

"I have owned this SUV for about 10 years and have found it VERY reliable. Bought in WA, drove it to Vegas, Canada, cross country to VA, NC, even Mt. Rushmore. We've never had to do any maintenance outside of the norm. If you change your spark plugs, replace belts, etc as needed you should have no real problems. Now that she's got more miles on her we've recently had to replace the battery, alternator and starter BUT she's 13 years old for crying out loud. I love my Montero Sport. The only downside- there is no Chiltons/Haynes manual. You have to find your maintenance guides online. Also, the spark plugs are hard to get to (and the dealership wanted $400 to change them) because you have to remove the upper intake manifold just to see them. It's been worth it to put in the work and do repairs ourselves and I would recommend this as a good family car."

"If I could, I'd only own Monteros for the rest of my life. This is hands down the best vehicle I have ever owned...the only repairs I've had to make have been age related and at a minor cost (slave cylinder for clutch, alternator, belts). At 150k miles, I figure I have another 60k left in her!"
