*Note: The only vehicle tested by NCAP remarked "Under Review!"


Of 21 completed runs made in Consumer Reports' short-course avoidance-maneuver test by CU's three test engineers, the first sample of the 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Limited tipped up on two wheels in 8 out of 9 runs conducted at 36.7 mph or faster. In one run at 37.7 mph, the vehicle tipped up so far that the safety outriggers contacted the ground. If not for the outriggers, we believe the vehicle would likely have rolled over. The vehicle tipped up with each of the three test drivers.
