Not bad, but not great

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Galant DE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I have owned this car for about 4 years now and have 51K on it. It is just mediocre. Fuel efficiency is poor, I have never gotten better than 28mpg, even with conservative driving. The lower price is attractive (as compared to a Honda or Toyota), but once you have owned it for a while you start noticing all the little corners that were cut to bring that price down. Not a bad car, but for $2K more you could get a Honda or Toyota and have a great car.




Good value for l;ong term

Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Galant DE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I have driven this car about 28,000 miles from new. For a 4 Cylinder car it has very good pick-up and ability to maintain highway speeds. The car's appearance in my opinion is better than the Camry or Accord but public perception (for trade-ins or private party seller) does not value a Mitusbishi as much as the others. If you are buying the car for the long term, then by all means get one. If you trade in every 2-3 years then you will not notice any trade-in value except for another Mitsubishi.




Interior quality

Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Galant DE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I purchased a new 2001 Galant in 2000. The vehicle runs great, but it is cheaply put together. My map light falls from the roof, the side mirror adjusters fall off, the entire glove box lock fell out when I tried to lock it, and the vent on the passenger side fell into my dash. It is not fun to pay for a car that you hate. Also the side doors ding VERY easily if someone next to you kits your door in a parking lot.

My 2001 Galant did that for at least 5 years. I never did anything about it and nothing ever happened. Mechanic said to ignore it if it goes out and doesn't stay on constantly while driving. So I d...

My wife finally gave up her 1989 Galant and traded for a brand new 2002 Diamante. She loved that Galant so much and never had a problem with it in the 13 years she owned it. I thought she would neve...

I just got my 2001 Mitsu Galant back from a reputable body shop and noticed that in the direct sunlight the metallic effect did not exist that once did. The car is a dark red, and in the sun the part...
