Incredibly Reliable 4WD
Idle air control motor failed.
This has been an incredibly reliable car. I previously owned a 1990 Montero and liked it so much that I purchased a 1995 model. Both vehicles have been unbelievable reliable. They just never break. And for a 4WD that is pretty amazing.
It is true that maintenance is expensive for the dealer. However, I am a DIYer and have never let the dealer touch this car. I did a major tune up/timing belt change at 90,000 miles (way over due should have been at 60,000). It is a huge job to change the timing belt. About 4-6 hours. But, how can I complain about that when nothing else ever breaks on the car?
Not real powerful, but I don't drive this car like speed racer. Lots of storage space.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
