1996 Mitsubishi Montero SR 3.5 from North America


Tough, and runs forever


Rear hinges, water temp sensor, turn signal switch.

General Comments:

Have owned 3, and they have been the most reliable vehicles I've ever owned. Basically have done nothing to them.

BTW, any moron can change the plugs. It's easy... $400... whatever!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

1996 Mitsubishi Montero LS 3.0 from North America


Very reliable and comfortable


Idle motor replaced at 95k miles.

Spark plug and wires replaced at 120k miles.

No other repairs needed.

General Comments:

This SUV has been very reliable. No major repair has been required; just regular oil changes. Ample storage space in the back with the 3rd row seat up. Drives very well on the highways, and handles well on snow with 4WD. We have been to Montana, California twice, Nevada twice and have not had any problem. Still running strong. I think 96 Monteros (not Montero Sport) are the best built Monteros.
