Vehicle: 1997 Mitsubishi Galant ES 4dr Sedan

This was my wife's first car, purchased in 2000 as a used car. It held up through Pittsburgh winters, though often with some sliding, and a parkway accident. It's now at 185,000 miles and was an excellent commuter car up until the last round of breaks and transmission repair needs. Very, very stylish and quality acceleration.




Loved it!

Vehicle: 1997 Mitsubishi Galant LS 4dr Sedan

I got my Galant brand new in 1997. It now has @130K miles. I've had no major problems with it. Fun to drive because it has a great acceleration 'kick'. Just zips in and out of traffic or when passing on the highway. At first it used to jerk when first starting out on the road. I had to learn how to manage the gas pedal so it wouldn't do that. over the last year or so different things have had to be replaced, but I've had it for 15 yrs so I don't complain (plus a mechanic friend has done most of the work for me on the cheap). Time for me to get a SUV so sadly I'm having to sale it.

'97 galant

Vehicle: 1997 Mitsubishi Galant ES 4dr Sedan

This car is terrible. I had such a bad experience with this car, that I would NEVER consider buying a Mitsubishi again. We purchased it brand new when it first came out. Since then, we have changed our transmission three times. The first time was by an independent and it didn't turn out very well. So we decided the second time we would get it done at the dealer, which you would assume would be better. Unfortunately, that was not the case. As soon as our warranty ran out, our transmission died again. I tried to talk to the dealer, but it was no use. The third time we had it replaced by an independent mechanic again because there is no point in getting by the dealer if there's no reliability. This car has been very unreliable.




Its a b.a.m! - bummin'

Vehicle: 1997 Mitsubishi Galant DE 4dr Sedan

I got my 1997 Mitsubishi Galant cheap off of Ebay with 173,000 miles on it. I replaced several OEM parts and upgraded the wheels/tires. This car gets good gas mileage and allows me to keep wear/tear off the two family cars. Its 2.4L engine is torquey. I will upgrade the brakes / suspension next, then add a new air intake.




Good car for price

Vehicle: 1997 Mitsubishi Galant DE 4dr Sedan

I have had this car for 5 years and have been very happy with it. I have been looking at new cars for about 12 months... and it is just so hard to convince myself to have a car payment when my Galant just keeps going and going. I haven't had any major troubles with it. The transmission has always felt funny - like it was going to go - but never has. It is a good car and it has surprisingly quick acceleration on the highways (for a 97, 2.4L sedan).
