I love this car, i am very sceptical about japenese cars, but this car is an exception! My mom drove it for about 1.5 years, then gave it to me. Even though i work at a detailing shop and can keep it nice, we havent had a single problem with the car yet, except for when a repair shop said they replaced the spark plugs for us (bear in mind the cam is over the engine so spark plugs is the only fix i cant do) they didnt replace the plugs, the engine stuttered a bit for a while and the check engine light was on, we brought it back. Apparently one of the plugs wasnt even firing at all and the thing was still puring like a kitten. Highly recommend this vehicle. Mine has 165,000 miles on it and still no problems!!!! and the photo of it i took, i didnt even mean for it to turn out this good but it turned out ad quality.

Bought it used 5 years ago with 80k, and now has 178k. Second set of tires. Had a little issue with AC, dumb alternator from Autozone caused issues, belts, and that is about it. Love it, looks mean with front bumper guard and big tires. Guzzles gas but its a beast driving and towing. Great used buy.

I like it.

Had a few SUV's (Blazer and Explorer also Jeep) and I like the looks probably the most, it is just that much different than the previously named and not as common a vehicle, so somewhat disctinct. Handles good, not fast, but why speed around in it. Nice Sound system (very impressive).

I bought this 2002 Montero Sport XLS used in Tampa with about 160,000 miles give or take. I've driven it almost daily for over a year now and have had absolutely zero problems with it. It now has 178,000 miles. At a local gas station here in Tampa Florida I had someone who was pumping gas ask me what year mine was. He had the exact same year and he said he got almost 500,000 miles on it then gave it to his daughter. It's a fun car to drive. It does guzzle gas though.

I bought this car new in 2002. While it has lasted a long time, I have had a lot of problems with it. It is needing work now, and I'm tired of it nickle and diming me so I'm looking for a new car. I'm not buying new this time either... I don't want my car to depreciate thousands when I drive off of the lot.
