Pros: "Nice price, easy to drive & manageable maintanence"

Cons: "No rear air condition, just heat"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This vehicle is your best friend as long as you maintain the maintanence. I brought it on a whim for a family that traveled a lot with kids and dogs. It has been a god send with realizability beyond words. If you take care of it, it will take care of you. This is a great vehicle and I feel sad that they are no longer being made."

Pros: "To me it is a very reliable vehicle, fun to drive."

Cons: "Rollover easily"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"A friend of mine actually had a similar SUV and he recommended me to get one. He later sold his when it was at 300,000K couple years ago. I bought the truck from a guy I know and I was able to get it for about $5,000 or so. It is a reliable truck and I will recommend it to anyone who asked me about getting a SUV. Now it is at over 225,000K and still driving fine, due to the high mileage and other stuff."

Pros: "large back cargo space, sporty look"

Cons: "Unsafe feel to it, breaks down, engine lags"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"Can't say anything good about this car, unfortunately it was the best I could find for what $ I had at the time, nothing but problems with it. Feels cheap when driving it, if I were to get in an accident, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't come out alive! I would not recommend to anyone. Engine lags, cheap interior, nothing but break downs in the last year."

Pros: "Quiet ride, great 4wd"

Cons: "Fuel economy"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Bought my Montero Sport XLS about 3 months ago from a dealership. Been happy with it ever since. Ride is a little rough but hey, it's an SUV. Plenty of power when I need it and very quiet on the interstate and highway. The only bad thing I have to say about this vehicle... horrible gas mileage!! I'm currently getting around 11 to 12 MPG with city driving. Truthfully can't drive it on the interstates because of the low gearing paired with a 4 speed automatic transmission without overdrive kills fuel consumption. Overall though, highly impressed with the vehicle and the quality. I recommend this vehicle to anybody looking to buy one. You won't be disappointed!"

Great car for the price

"This 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport runs very well. Interior is in great shape. Engine runs like a top. Great acceleration. The exterior has a few dings and scratches. I've taken very good care of the car so it is in wonderful shape inside and drives great."
