SOLD: Mitsubishi Montero Sport GLS (2007) begin November (intermediate sale also possible)



We are a Belgian couple (Arne (30y) and Tine (26y) traveling throughout South America for 3 months who are planning on selling our wonderful and dependable Mitsubishi Montero in early November 2016, in Santiago Chile.  The vehicle is a 4x4 boasting great ground clearance, making it able to deal with all kind of roads in South America.  It is fully equipped for any Overlander adventure, able to comfortably sleep two people inside the car on a raised bed kit with plenty of storage underneath, a big roof basket, capable of holding lots of gear, a fastened board behind the roof basket that holds three gas cans, a water jug, and a second spare tire, as well as many other tools, devices, camping supplies, and perks to make your South American adventure easy and comfortable.  The car is registered in Chile and has all the necessary documents and insurance, most of them good until March 31, 2017. 

We can help you get the necessary RUT number needed to buy the car, and have already been through the experience of buying a car in Santiago, so we are able to make the process (recentely renewed) very easy for you. The entire transfer and receiving your title (Padron) usually takes 3-4 weeks, but we can have a document made at the notary giving you our permission to leave Chile with the car if you want to leave the country right away.
We bought the car in August from an American couple with 202.000 km on it, and it should have a maximum of 220.000 km (+- 137.500 Miles) on it when we sell it. 
There is much work done  (by us and by the previous owners) to the car to ensure it continues to run well and remains dependable.  Much of this work was done by Martin Hrepich, a highly recommended and praised Overlander mechanic in Santiago.  Also, the Mitsubishi Montero is a very common vehicle throughout South America allowing you to blend in, and making spare parts easy to find, and labor cheap.  Here are the main details:

Used car:

We really love the car and hope others can love it as well. It's a very reliable and well maintained car what is the most important thing when you want to travel through SA. We want to be honest with the future owners by not only telling the great things about our beloved car but also mentioning the minor inconveniences. By doing this we want to avoid unpleasant surprises for you:

1) Some scratches because the car isn't always under a sheet in the garage, is a travellers car

2) Now and then the 4x4 indicator light is flashing green together with the ABS, which would mean that the 4 wheel drive doesnt disconect properly. This is checked by several mecanics, the 4x4 works just fine, they say it's one underpressure valve sensor which does not work properly (dust around sensors) which causes both lamps to blink. It's a common and surely no inconvenient problem with Montero (Mitsubishi 4wd, you can search on the internet or ask a dealer, like we did in Belgium). We are keen to have the car in good condition, as we do a lot of driving ourselves, so we fix everything. If we discover at some point, that we need to fix it, we will. But since everything works just fine there is no need so far. We think it just fair to tell you that.

We are asking € 8350 or best offer.
