1995 Mitsubishi Montero LS 3.0 V6 from North America
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

I really love my new 1995 Montero LS (I often wonder what LS means though). It is extremely comfortable and perfect for families with small children.
My first purchase was in 2004 (last month) at 120,000 miles and the engine is still roaring. Parts can be a little expensive, but fortunately they last a long time. They are also not always available in my country.
I am not from the USA and would appreciate if any reader could suggest the best dealership (perhaps in Miami) where parts for this model are more easily accessible.
I am truly happy with my Montero.
