2002 Mitsubishi Montero XLS 4WD Review
Bought it new, have over 200,000 miles and it runs like new. When I am crusing on the highway I have to be careful with my speed as I can be going 90 and not realise it due to the smooth ride. It has a six cylinder but has sufficient get up & go. I have the tow package and can tow my single axel (Texas Trailer) loaded (2,000 lbs) with no problem.
Both the front and rear cigarette lighters need to be replaced, they just wore out from plugging & unplugging cell phones.
Impressive — Mitsubishi "recommeds premium gas" (when I tried to use mid grade or regular it negatively affects the performance). The biggest downside is that Mitsubishi quit selling them here in the USA. In hindsight I would have opted for the Limited edition with Leather seats.

2002 Mitsubishi Montero Limited 4WD Review
This vehicle has a great drivetrain with excellent of road capabilities. All the seats are comfortable and the second row seats are reclining. Great cargo room.
A little under powered but not a big deal it has a 3.5 v-6 they put 3.8L in newer ones. The brakes seem a little week but not a b
I Love It!!!! Although I Wish I Had My 3000gt Vr-4 But Babies Come First!!! — I love the comfortable seats, lumbar support, heated seats, 2nd row seats will recline flat almost like a bed!!!!! The off road is great very strong off road vehicle its no jeep rock crawlerr but it will hold its own. I was driving 65mph and someone pulled out in front of me I had to swerve to not rear end them, I fish tailed 3 or 4 times I probably could have came out of it but I have up and slammed on the brakes ( I should've keep correcting but I said screw it) then the rear tire hit a curb side ways, and I have to say that this vehicle must be very bottom heavy because I should have flipped!!!!! I don't know what the rollover rating it on this vehicle is but seems great to me! If I was in my 3000gt VR-4 I have no doubt I would have came out of it with all wheel drive and 4 wheel steering. This Montero is a great vehicle. I'm about to change plugs and wires, timing belt and water pump. I think if you maintain this vehicle it will last you a long time!!!!
