"Had to write about this car after using this site for so long....only fair. I do not work or have worked for Mitsubishi and am the orig owner. This is the best car I have ever owned. Best sized SUV, most comfortable, best driving position, best view out the windshield, most reliable. Only drawback is the mpg. Only negative was the dealer I purchased the car from, in NJ...really bad. If Mitsubishi still offered in US, my car buying search would be over."

Pros: "Quality buy- you get your money's worth"

Cons: "Rear seats don't flatten down for more cargo space"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"This vehicle has been the best reliable vehicle I've ever had. I have driven it in hot weather, snow and ice and never had any steering trouble and never got stuck. I've never taken it off road but believe it handle that great. I am the second owner. The first was my niece who I bought it from in 2007. I paid $13,000. It does have wear and tear from moving a couple of times across country, and it's been a family car. The spare tire cover on the back has been scorched by the sun and car washes although I still use it. I've lived the room inside but one thing I've wondered is why both rear seats don't flatten for more cargo space in the rear compartment. Other than that it's been a great car."

Cons: "Bad gas milege ONLY"

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

"I have never owned a vehicle that I have loved to drive and felt safer in than this car. It has always been very dependable and a comfortable ride. I have traveled across the country a few different times with the higher miles on it and it performed wonderfully. Towing a trailer one time decreased my gas mileage significantly but this is not a heavy duty SUV. Taking it camping or off roading was a piece a cake with the higher drive train. Traveling in 12-18 inches of snow is as easy to drive as a dry street with the four-wheel drive. It just recently died on me after driving it very hard and I am heart broken. I have not felt nearly as safe and comfortable in my new vehicle as I was in this wonderful Montero. If Mitsubishi would make this same car again I would buy it in a heart beat. The ONLY thing that was a negative was the gas mileage and I enjoyed everything else so much that I was willing to pay for the gas."
