Pros: The size
Advice: Buy It!!!The test drive went very well. I needed to do this in order to see if the truck fitted in my garage (which is sort of small) and when I backed it into the garage and it fit, I knew I wanted the truck!
Pros: The lumbar support and height adjustment for driver seat
Cons: Side steps look cool but make it a little akward getting in and out
Advice: Do your research to make sure it's really what you want and needCar is comfortable, drivers seat has lumbar support and height adjustment. The back seat has a center fold down for arm rest and drink holder, and another cool thing about the back seat is it reclines. Plenty of storage space, cargo room in the back is big with small compartments underneath the floor to store things like battery cables and tools. The all wheel drive is great in the snow, and the heater puts out plenty of heat. I've only had my Montero a month, but so far I've been happy with it.
Pros: Quality and apperance
Advice: If you are looking for a 4X4 on a truck frame this is the oneGreat vehicle for overall driving in Alaska. The AWD is nice to have in addition to the 4h and 4L. This is the 3rd Mitisubishi I have owned.
Pros: Big enough for my family but small enough to park
Cons: driver seat could be more comfortable
Advice: DONT forget to refinance if you choose the 0/0I have no complaints on my vehicle. I have owned it for 18 months now with no problems.
Cons: Rear Windshield Wiper in the up position when off
Advice: Buy it at CarmaxI was originally shopping for a Jeep Liberty. When the Jeep dealership would not give me anything for my 1995 Rodeo, I went to Carmax to sell it. While there, I found out that I could buy a new MS LTD (list almost 33K) for the same price that Jeep wanted for the Liberty. No comparison! I bought the MS and haven't looked back
Pros: Comfortable ride, easy to get in and out.
Cons: Appearance package doesn't come with a rear cargo screen. Not enough cup holders.
Advice: Go with the 0/0, then refinance the loan when the interest hits. *Do not* buy gap insurance.I've owned my sport for nearly a year now and for the most part -- I love it. Great ride, lots of pickup, lots of comfort, looks cool, good price. However, over the course of a *very* cold winter there were four mornings when she just didn't want to turn over. I've been to the dealer to have it looked at, but since they can't replicate the problem they can't identify it. Now it's spring and it will probably be another year before it happens again. Anyone else having similar problems?
Pros: ALL WHEEL DRIVE and 5000 lb towing capacity.
Cons: No factory installed towing package.
Advice: Don't go by HP alone. This SUV has AWD and top notch quality.I traded a 2001 Dakota Quad Cab and do not regret the decision. My wife and I find the Montero Sport to be more comfortable inside with a very good ride. We have traveled long distances with four adults with no complaints. The best feature this SUV has over the competition is the All Wheel Drive. You can also swith into 4H or 4L. We just had a blizzard with 24' of snow. I feel safe knowing my wife and kids are in this SUV!
