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


Review

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.


Best Features

Good power, attractive styling, comfortable front seats, decent std stereo, big trunk.


Worst Features

More rear seat legroom (very cramped for adults), better fabric upolstery (stains and indents VERY easily), cruise control reliability is poor, have had it repaired 3 times (1st time at 15K) and still does not work right, horrible resale value.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Basic car did not need many options. Built in CD was good. Power provided by the 4 Cyl engine keeps up with California freeways. The engine noise while providing this power is fairly subdued. I like the Grill/headlight design.


Worst Features

- Seats with more adjustments, specifically a manual tilt. - 5/6 speed manual transmission. - A seat with bolsters designed for holding a body inplace while taking curves.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Built in CD player. Great air conditioning unit. Good on gas.


Worst Features

Overall vehicle quality could be improved.
