1997 MITSUBISHI MONTERO
I purchased to avoid renting cars everytime I visit PR. I travel all over the island sometimes in off road terrain, beaches and regular highways. I also use it to carry materials as I remodel my home there. It has been reliable so far. I had to spent a few dollars initially to catch up with some maintenance like transmision fluid, shocks and some suspension bushings...but that is expected after 114K miles. No leaks/unusual sounds etc...Engine, transmission, suspention, electrical are solid.
1987 MITSUBISHI MONTERO
Gas mileage is pretty bad, but the fun factor and styling of this vehicle more than make up for it. It is an extremely solid 4x4 platform and can go anywhere with minimal upgrades. The interior and exterior are spartan, but that is part of the allure. These trucks are a rarity on the road here in the states. I bought one because of their ubiquitous presence in Latin America, where roads sometimes disappear. It's noisy, slow, boxy, all manual, with little to no creature comforts. In a word: perfect.
2005 MITSUBISHI MONTERO
This vehicle is unstoppable in all kinds of weather. All wheel drive, high and low range 4X4 and a center locking differential that locks all four wheels! This vehicle weighs 6000lbs (3 tons). Ride is great. Just enough power for whatever (3.8 V-6). Great gas mileage (16-22 mpg) add a K&N filter and when using the correct fuel, which is ethanol free 89/91 high octane. Wonderful creature comforts and nicer than most high end new 2016 SUV's. An out-of-sight super large moon roof. Seventeen inch siped Hankook RF-10 265/265 R17 tires. Its been places where I wouldn't take my horse! Nice!! Highly recommend.
