Mitsubishi Montero & Montero Sport This sport utility vehicle offers more size than the other Mitsubishi SUVs, but manages to keep a sporty look and comfortable feel, unlike many larger SUVs.

Are Monteros a Regional Thing?

Default Are Monteros a Regional Thing?

I just got back from a family visit back east around Washington, DC. While I was there, I was on a constant watch for Monteros because I wanted to point one out to my brother since I just bought a 1995 LS model and he had no idea what they looked like.

I live in Berkeley, CA, and there are Monteros all over the place, especially the Sport Model. But after six days of driving all over parts of Maryland, Virginia and DC, I didn't see any Monteros, Sports or otherwise. Not one.

That got me wondering if the Montero is a regional thing? Maybe they never made it to the East Coast? Anyone know about that?

Thanks...

I'm in the Bay Area too, but even here, its "scarce" to see Monteros..

they were popular in the Filipino community so I've seen a good amount in Milpitas, Daly City, or Berryessa Area in San Jose-- this is due to the popularity of the vehicle in the Philippines.. of course there known as the PAJERO.

And I speak of FULL SIZE MOntys. I see more Montero SPORTS, of course not as pimpin as the full size.

But the 2nd gen models like yours.. yea thats a rare site all together.

Of course anyplace it snows (where they salt the roads) you don't see ANY vehicle that's 15 years old, come to think of it:-)

My problem is that I can't find a 2003 or newer Montero within 300 miles of Seattle. 2002 and older are a dime-a-dozen!

Then why not snag one of these? I happen to like the older styling to the newer ones.

Just curious...

Because I want the larger engine and less miles.

And here I thought the amount of gas that my 95 beast sucks down was a bad thing
