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.
mine had leather seats, dashboard and armrests. alloy wheels, white exterior tan interior with taupe contrasts...so attractive. the zippy acceleration. mine had a 10 cd changer with the cd remote in the car.
correct that initial jerk (they told me it was fuzzy logic)~go figure...well, I did
