Excellent vehicle, buy used and keep forever
The electric antenna is the only component that has broken.
Recently, I started losing brake fluid. It is scheduled to be serviced this week.
Overall this is a great vehicle.
On/Off road performance is great. Off road the Montero Sport performs incredibly well. Ice has stopped me two times, both times as I was trying to leave my driveway after ice storms.
Cabin is comfortable, with plenty of room. Smoked glass is great for keeping the inside temperature down in the summer. Separate air controls in the rear passenger compartment is a real plus after a day of kayaking.
Cloth seats, carpets, have held up amazingly well despite the abuse I put on them. Wet gear, moisture has not had an effect on the inner compartment. I do clean the vehicle after each session of abuse though.
Overall, I have been impressed with Mitsubishi. Both vehicles I have purchased from Mitsubishi have been great. Though, the 0% financing kills the resale value of the vehicle. These vehicles do not appear to hold their value well...bummer :(
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
