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!
