2001 Mitsubishi Galant GTZ 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I bought this car new, .3 miles on it. It's been a great car to drive. It handles very well (GTZ has sport suspension), and has a good amount of go when I want it. I have driven this car like I stole it from day one and it has taken most of the abuse. I have replaced the rear bearings once at about 90k, caused by cheesy caps on the inside of the rear hub rusting out. Blew up torque converter around 120k resulting in replacement boneyard trans (very, very rare issue, probably my fault). I have almost 180k on it now, getting some rust, need some bushings, O2 sensor, haven't replaced timing belt ever. Still starts and accelerates like the day I bought it every time.
I like the sporty look, for a sedan. Acceleration has always been great. 7 speaker Infinity sound is really good for a stock audio system.
Manual trans was unfortunately not available with the V6 engine. Also, power trunk was not available until '02 or '03. Rear leg room is a little cramped.
