Mitsubishi is a reliable brand. Especially Montero ( full size). I personally own a 2004 Montero LTD. But before that I owned '85 and '93 Montero. Montero has a long history of reliability. One thing you should think about 99 Montero is - this model year does not have stability control option as a safety measure ( they started inputting Stability Control from 2003 model). If you think you can drive safely and maintain the car, it will serve you for a long time. If you think you can live with 15/19 MPG fuel consumption, at 85,000 miles it is a definitely a better buy then any US made SUV undoubtedly. This is my 2 cents. hope this helps..

You are my only reply and thank you very much for taking the time to respond.
The price is right at $8,000 and it is a totally luxury vehicle. I am not a wild driver, so the stablity control is not that big a deal for me. I do like sitting high on the road, out here in California anyway for the times I have to compete on the freeway.
Probably would never use the 4WH drive feature, so that is kinda a draw back. A little concerned about the gas mileage - but basically would use it only to and from the airport and grocery trips.
One question I have not been able to answer is whether the third row seats can be removed, and if the second row seats fold FLAT.
Do you know?

Sorry for the delay in replying but this is usually sorted out if you dis engage the 4x4 to 2x4 and then reverse your vehicle back for approx 10 meters.

Hi, everyone. As you've probably noticed, we have been trying to refine the discussions into more narrowly focussed topics. Our objective is twofold. We want to make it easier for people seeking specific information about their vehicles to find it easily and without having to wade through hundreds or thousands of postings.
To those ends, we will be shutting down the general make/model discussions and work exclusively with specific issues. This requires us to populate the make/model subsections with relevant, interesting and timely topics. Rather than having the hosts simply create boilerplate topics for each make/model, we feel that you, the owner, the make/model enthusiast and the prospective buyer can best judge what those topics should be.
You can help by adding a discussion (it's easy!) or suggesting one here.
To add a discussion, click on the last link in the "You are here" line at the top of this page. That will take you to the topic page for this make/model. Review the list of topics and click on the "Add discussion" link when you've decided what topic you'd like to add. Follow the directions and you're done! Feel free to add more than one. Just avoid duplicating existing topics and try not to make it TOO specific!
Your help and continued participation in the Forums is greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Same thing just happened to me on my 2001 engine with 80K.
The truck got noisy. I pulled off the road and now need a new engine. I am being quoted 6k-8k for a new engine!!!
Is there anywhere I can get a used, refurb, remanufacted, or something to cheap to get back on the road!??
so much for faulty engine warranties.

My engine died at 80k. A cylinder was not getting combustion and noone could tell me why including the dealership. Now the engine is dead. I only found 3k-6k. I only owe 8k on the car now. Help! Any ideas? Other than that its looks new.
