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


Review

Purchased at 37,000 and still running at 114,000 with no signs of slowing down. Not a very FUN car to drive with the 4 cyl. but its been very reliable and smooth on the highway. Gas mileage has been good too. Will be sad to see her go

2001 Mitsubishi Galant Sedan ES V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

i bought the car about a year and a half ago and it was in great running condition and since then i have been driving it like a bat out of hell and it has held up very nicely i have only had to do routine maintenance and a few cosmetic repairs and the 3.0 V-6 has plenty of power during races and not to mention its easy to work on


Favorite Features

the suspension and the engine are great they can take a beating and keep on going


Suggested Improvements

better sounding exhaust system or stock turbo

Review

I bought this car brand new off the lot. I didn't have any problems for a very long time; just normal maint. ~110K my transmission died w/ no previous indications there was a problem. Replaced a cracked radiator @ ~90K. Never replaced windshield or headlights. 4 things I've always complained about. 1.The LCD display on the CD player is nearly impossible to read. 2.The fact that the CD player tells you when it's too hot is an extremely bad design flaw. 3. The top coat on door handles & side mirrors is gone. 4. Upholstery all the way up to the window? Terrible place to have fabric after 9 years of resting your arm there. Vinyl on my next car, please...


Favorite Features

The abundant cup holders. The trunk is very good size w/ pass through. Ample leg room in front. Good sound system.


Suggested Improvements

Relocate CD Player and change display. Vinyl on doors up to windows. Better paint job.

Review

I bought my Galant after receiving a settlement from a bad car accident. Figuring it was a good deal (89k for 3,900), seemed fantastic. It drove fine for a while. Then I realized, it gets 21 MPG on average. Really? For a 4 cylinder motor I expected much more. As for handling, it's alright. I've driven better and I've driven worse. I would never ever endorse this car. My mistake. Hopefully no one else does the same thing.


Favorite Features

Wood grain. That's about it.


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage. Better handling. Better ride. Better acceleration.

Review

I had that car for 21 month. When I bought it it got 176,000 miles and it was ok. It was good car at first year and I didn't spend that much as maintenance. But at second year it broke me down every thing was going wrong and I wasted too much money on it and finally i gave it to carmax . (don't buy any gallant with high mileage).


Favorite Features

Exterior design, comfort


Suggested Improvements

Gear position on dash screen. More room for rear seat, better cup holder, there is not any handle inside the car (above the doors) 4 gear transmission which spends more fuel in highway, high maintenance cost ,
