Mitsubishi Montero Problems

Loose or Broken Crankshaft Pulley Bolt

The crankshaft pulley bolt may become loose or break causing loss of power steering operation and other related engine accessories. Some of these vehicles may be involved in a recall for this issue. Our technicians tell us that an updated bolt may be available. Replacing as necessary and properly torquing the crankshaft bolt will commonly correct this issue.

Front Brake Wear Issues

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.

Handling Issues Due to Worn or Damaged Front Suspension or Steering Components

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.

Mitsubishi Montero Reviews

My 95 Montero now has 276,000 miles on it! Goes thru a little oil because of intake valve seals. Thats about it. Been an excellent, reliable, comfortable 4 wheel.
Hi, I have owned a montero for now 10 years and runs really great. I am now aspiring to go for a higher model. This beast is really good for both outdoor and indoor.
I've had this Montero for about 3 months till it got totalled in an accident, it's a great car for somebody who loves to explore, don't miss it!
