thats a clean ride you picked up for 20L. good work joy.

keep the tyres and dont rush in to change them sooner.

get the vehicle treated to a nice 3M rubbing and polishing to enhance the paint quality and get the underbody done up for anti rust treatment.

get leather treatment for the upholstry.

you got a good ride dude

great purchase.
it just needs some interior detailing, a new wheel cover for the spare and a good off roading trip. the lion will then be purring like a tamed house cat.

Excellent condition, not surprising as these *trucks* age very well. 20 lakhs is a great price for a 2 year old CBU that cost 40 lakhs new. I have to admit, I prefer the looks of the pre-facelift version. Its more subtle, wears muscular wheel arches (toned down in the facelift) and has traditionally butch looks. The facelift has more equipment and a common rail, but the power output is the same. Good thing is, your Montero has better handling than the facelift which had its suspension softened (for ride comfort).

Again, congrats Jyoyeb! You've gotten a beast for the price of a Fortuner.

I would call it a very good buy considering the condition of the vehicle and the price. No new vehicle this price point can offer the finesse of this super SUV. This SUV actually has very good dynamics unlike the Toyota Prado.

Thanks guys! I just love the way the car moves. Only thing is that I am not as carefree driving it as I was in the Safari.

The last set of pictures show the rear seat being stowed away! Very cool!
Congrats. It looks stunning in profile. U got a great colour too.
Other than the fake wood, I love this monster.

BTW whats the black rod like thing thats under your rear door?

Thats the plate that holds the door open. A bit like the lock in the umbrella.

Congratulations Jyobeb. Excellent buy IMO considering new one costs a whopping 42.88L(ex-showroom). Looks like its very well maintained. Happy Driving.
By the way, how's the middle row leg room and thigh support?

That is a brilliant buy for sure. A friend recently sold a 2002 Montero for 13.5L - I just missed the bus so to speak. It has a brilliant drive !! Congratulations on the buy. It seems like a looked after vehicle.

Enjoy !!
