Excellent car - very reliable

Vehicle: 1998 Mitsubishi Galant

This is my third Galant and the first of generation/body style. Also it's the third galant I have driven over 200,000 miles without any major fixes whatsoever. I will be straight up honest with all of you. As a mechanic I have seen so many failures because of lack of simple maintainance!! 95% of people do not follow the maintainance recomendations of these vehicles and cause their own vehicles to fail. All of my cars have had their 30, 60, 90 services and have always performed properly. I also have a 3000GT-VR4 for a weekend fun car and it has 160,000 miles and all original everything inlcuding the clutch! Mitsubishi makes a quality vehicle, properly taken care of will certainly last.

I need a new ride

I have my driving license for three years now and for all those year the only vehicle I drove was the Galant. This car runs like a sport car but has a few flaws. So far the vehicle is in good condition but the trans skips gears sometimes.

I had just totaled a 1996 Geo Prism, a very dependable car. I went looking for a not so expensive mid-size car. This Galant had 36,000 miles on it in 2003, so I was thinking about a new car. After three days I noticed problems with the transmission. I kept hoping it would go away, but at 63,000 miles the transmission starting acting up. I paid $2,300 at the Amcoo transmission to fix it (they were a big ripoff but that's another story) after about six months I was having problems again. I had to trade this car in which wasn't worth 10 cents. If I could I would tell the world to never buy Mitsubishi again. I think that anyone that ever owned a 1998 Galant should file a lawsuit for pain and suffering.

As good as it gets

I bought this Galant in Dec. 2003 with only 34K miles on it. Since then (about 1.3 years), I've driven it 26K miles. Absolutely no problems. It is fun to drive, gets very good mileage (30-35MPG highway), and is a great value. Mine has the 5-speed tranny, which I highly recommend for fun-to- drive factor and to avoid problems others seem to have with the automatic.

I bought this car at 41k mi, & added the ext warranty. My first bit of trouble was a few weeks later, took it to get serviced, paid the deductible and 7 hours later they returned it untouched saying the sunroof (which was inoperable) was aftermarket so it wasn't covered and the calipers weren't actually malfunctioning (even though they wore through brakes at an angle.) Next, at 60,200 mi, my shift-select cable frays, and stops working. I take it in, the dealer says they won't touch it after 60k. Now, the tranny is completely out at 93k mi and I'm ready to move on to a better make, This car is a great little car when it's new, after about 50k miles, get rid of it! Subaru Forester here I come!
