2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport Problems
A vibration, steering wheel shimmy, or vehicle pull to the left or right may be noted. These conditions are commonly caused by worn or damaged front suspension or steering components. Our technicians tell us that extra care should be taken to inspect the front end components often and replace any worn or damaged parts as soon as possible to try and avoid these potentially unsafe conditions.
A pulsation may be noted upon brake apply, most commonly caused by warped front brake rotors. Front brake pads may also wear out prematurely. Our technicians recommend replacing worn pads and rotors with quality replacement parts in order to achieve the best possible longevity for the front brake components.

2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport Reviews
I have had my car for 9 yrs. and it has over 141000 miles on it when the worst thing possible happened, the timing belt broke and now the vavles and gaskets had to be replaced. I decided to get it fixed, because it still is a good car, but I just drive it too much and it gave out. It is going to cost over 2000.00 to fix, but I would rather do that then have a car payment. I'm telling everyone out there to get your timing belts check if you have an older car before something like this happens to you.
