1994 Mitsubishi Galant Sedan GS 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my Galant GS (manual) new in Jan. '94. It has had no ultra-major issues over the years, just the tie-rods problematic were and it need frequent alignments (and tires). I replaced the timing belt and a few weeks later the water pump died (always get them replaced at same time). I had a valve break off a piece; which cost about $2,000 to replace. I now have about 155,000 miles on it and I'm getting around 27 mpg in city driving. The power is missing from the good ole days but my milage has improved. It burns a little oil but otherwise I expect I could run it up to 200,000 miles. I have the original transmission (but it's a manual and even after grinding numerous gears over 13 years it still shifts fine - though sometimes first is a little sticky to get into).


Best Features

The interior has held up very well for 13 years. The exterior still shines with no visible rusting.


Worst Features

The front end could hold up better. The trunk could be roomier, but I guess the newer ones are.

1994 Mitsubishi Galant Sedan LS 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought the Galant LS model new in '94. It's been a really nice machine to drive. It gets great gas mileage and has good handling. I have made several long trips with the Galant and its very comfortable and reliable. The only problems have been with the window motors and lately starting problems. Even though it now is a little rough looking due to lack of care and several teenage drivers, I would still hate to part with it.


Best Features

The motor, it has lots of low end power and good gas milage.


Worst Features

The arm rest is too low.

Review

Within the first year I replaced: starter, alternator, transmission, belts. In the recent year, I've replaced the radiator, water pump, 3 alt./pwr. string belt, battery, distributor cap, etc. I've had doors lock/unlock by themselves, and motors on windows go bad. This car stinks.


Best Features

Interior still looks great.


Worst Features

Improve the reliability.

Review

Bought used from a friend. Garage kept, routine maintenance, had 100k when purchased. Rode great for the first year I had it. Then I experienced electrical problems--power windows' motor breaking (wasn't able to roll them up,happened in december,great timing!!!),power locks had a mind of their own (got locked out several times).recently (133K) had big problems,water pump needed to be replaced along with heater core. heater core part only existed in JAPAN!!! and costs $700. so i warn you about certain foreign cars...they could cost you big bucks to fix.


Best Features

Surprisingly powerful for a 4 cyclinder. Performed excellently on highways.


Worst Features

i also didn't like where the air filter was located. very difficult to replace!
