#337 of 935 Privacy to Safe Surf Mike

I agee that you don't have to provide your email address. However, when you ask such specific questions and wish to get it, it would help those of us who can truly help to provide the data to them specifically. Did you read my suggestion to Dropapple and Suptropical, to go to post #326? Did you yourself go to post #326? I challenge you to send me a direct email at BigEasyAlhotmail.com
The valuable information and ton of data are several Microsoft Word documents and several Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets and scanned copies of actual dealer invoices for each and every model of the montero sport. In total it is 28 pages of data for each of the seven models of the montero sport (ES 2wd, LS 2wd, LS 4wd, XLS 2wd, XLS 4 wd, Limited 2 wd, and Limited 4wd) When you add to that the fact that each model line has either a preferred package, premium package, or leather seating package the permiatation goes from seven to thirteen, each with 28 pages of data, comparisons to other SUV models, purchase negotiation letters, a listing of all the mitsubishi dealers in every state, etc. Do the math Mike, 28 pages of data times 13 permiatations equals 364 pages of data. In my own words, "valuable information, and a ton of data". To post that much information on this site is impossible.
I bought my new 2000 MS Limited for $350 under invoice, and got the factory trailer hitch/wire harness installed, front bug guard and sunroof wind deflector installed, rear gargo net and husky rear gargo liner, wheel locks, two additional transponder ignition keys, and additional alarm remote control unit, leather seat cleaner and conditioner, and 6 oil changes; in all about $1,500 worth of extra's for just $500.
If people wish to post questions on the board and are willing to take whatever advice that "might" come, that's there choice. I just suggested that they read my post #326 and either provide an email address with their post or email me directly. I am not afraid to help, and I have almost always given my email address with my post.
See for yourself, if I don't have a ton of data! Email me directly and ask for data on any 2000 model Montero Sport and then prepare to make a retraction on your post # 368. If you honestly think that the information I will provide to you is not valuable, you can say so on this board and I will never post on this board again. But on the other hand, if you do see the merits of the data I send, please be man enough to say so.
P.S. Mike, this is the type of response that should not be made on this board. And is exactly why I am a proponent of those that make specific comments or ask specific questions to post there email address. Why should everyone in the world have to read this, when it is specifically ment only for you. Go read post #284, #271, and 269 also.
#338 of 935 warning to all prospecitve mitsubishi in central ma

If I can reach but one person, I've saved them alot of hassle. Stay away from Riverside Mitsubishi in Auburn, MA. I purchased a 2001 montero sport ltd. Love it, it's great. However customer service at this dealership is terrible.
They have no equipment to inspect your vehicle and their service dept. has no equipment. They fail to tell you this once they "get their sale"!
They won't even pay for the inspection or give you a loaner car (due to front end alignment that they need to do). You drop 30,000 plus and not even a lousy drive up the street to get the vehicle inspected. This along with the arrogance of the salesman, general manager and the owner make for an unpleasant experience. Requested my car be cleaned on the inside and salesman states " you don't want that shiny shi* in your vehicle". Who's he to judge what I want after having brought a brand new vehicle. The owner knows he has an unhappy customer and doesn't even care. Whatever happenned to the customer is always right? Oh well stay away, that's the best advice I can give....

#340 of 935 and bad review...
Sep 28, 2000 (4:56 pm)
I just came off a nine-day experience with a rental Montero Sport (it only had 300 miles when I got it) and was really disappointed with the vehicle (my vehicle got rear ended and was in the shop)...and we had considered it a candidate in making our purchase. Just thought I would remind all that it is never a bad idea to either take the vehicle for the weekend, if the dealer will let you, or rent one for a few days.
I'm not here to bash MS, praise another vehicle or give my assessment in more detail...so much of that is individual preference...but I was just surprised that, after what I have read out here, my wife and I found so much to dislike about the MS, and thought I would forward this caveat- spend some time with it before you buy it!!!

I answered your question earlier. I took my XLS 2000 Sport in with the same problem. They checked it and found that I had too much compression gas in my AC. They took it all out, put it in at the right level and the problem disappeared completely. Tell them to check your freon level. I bet that is your problem. Let me know if that works.

#345 of 935 New Montero Sport Owner
Oct 12, 2000 (2:15 am)
Just looking around on the web for Montero stuff. Last nite I came home with a 2000 Montero Sport XLS. Absolutely LOVE IT!
I did all my homework, then test drove a Grand Cherokee, Ford Explorer and this one. Took it home overnite (good way to get a buyer addicted!), and bought it the next afternoon.
The Jeep was too narrow and the Ford - well, it just didn't do anything for me. Also considered a 4Runner (too expensive for what you get and it's less powerful).
I've owned Nissan's for years (cars), and I'm truly faithful, but hate the Pathfinder - the way it drives (same comment on the 4Runner price/value), and the XTerra was too small and drove similar to the Pathfinder.
Anyway, I feel like it's Christmas! If I'm paying this kind of money for a vehicle....
I WANT TO LOVE TO DRIVE IT! Woooooo Hooooo!
#346 of 935 To 1900 - Used 2000
Oct 12, 2000 (2:20 am)
I just bought a used 2000 4WD XLS last nite and paid 21K (at the dealer).
Don't know what model the 00 your looking at is, but see it's also a 2WD. You might want to call your bank - on-line pricing is not right for 00's but my bank had the right info. I know, because I just went through this yesterday.
The wholesale on mine was 20,6somthing, and the retail was almost 24K. If you look it up for mine on the internet it gives much higher (not updated or mileage considering) pricing.
So, call the bank.
