Your Guide to 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Mitsubishi Montero and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Montero. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Montero maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2000 Mitsubishi Montero!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mitsubishi, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Montero running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2000 Mitsubishi Montero problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mitsubishi Montero

Bring your 2000 Mitsubishi Montero to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Montero's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2000 Mitsubishi Montero? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mitsubishi Montero battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Montero stranded. Your Mitsubishi Montero won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2000 Mitsubishi Montero's engine run smoother. To learn how often Mitsubishi recommends you have the oil changed in your 2000 Montero, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2000 Mitsubishi Montero.

Routine upkeep for your Mitsubishi Montero suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions.
