Lots of space. Good visibility. Decent power. Generic interior can be customized easily with upgraded stereo components.


I've been dealing with an electrical issue, a battery drain problem that I've read is quite common to these vehicles. The torque converter is starting to slip, and the engine has a leak in the rear, causing it to lose oil. I bought the vehicle used with 148000 miles, and I have now about 165000 miles. I'm looking to sell it and get another vehicle.


Sporty, And Fun To Drive, But Watch Out For Lemons. — I bought my 2000 Monterro Sport a in 2010 for around $4000 with 148,000 miles on it. It has served me well for the past couple of years. It's had a leak somewhere near the back of the engine causing it to purge oil, and causing a slight burning odor since I purchased the truck. It's not a huge problem and can either be fixed or resolved by topping off the oil every couple of weeks. Recently, the torque converter has begun to slip, and an electrical issue has emerged that drains my battery overnight. My solution currently is to disconnect the battery when I'm not driving. The problem with this is that the engine idle settings have to be reset every time I drive the car after reconnecting the battery. This leads to stalls when the car is stopped for the first 30 minutes of driving until the idle controls are reset. Overall, I like the vehicle, it just seems that I found a lemon.

Low maintenance


Not the prettiest vehicle


My Montero Sport — Love my car! It's getting to be on the older side but it's never made me walk. Definitely the most low-maintenance vehicle I have ever owned. The only money I've ever put into it has been for regular maintenance, such as oil changes, tires, brake pads, radiator flushes, etc. Would definitely recommend to anyone and have even considered trading it in for a newer model when I am ready to buy again.
