2001 Mitsubishi Galant ES 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
I bought my new Galant in 2001 and have had no major issues with it. The only 2 things that I've had to replace since then were 1) a cracked radiator and 2) the O2 sensor. As long as all scheduled maintenance and oil changes are done on time, this car will run for years to come. Included in my usual oil changes, I also add a bottle of fuel injector cleaner to the gas tank. Paint on my car is great, but I also tend to wax my car every three months. I love my car and want to buy another new Mitsubishi, but will need to wait until this recession crisis eases up a bit.
Reliability of it's engine. Very comfortable interior seats. Easy tune up service: even at almost 150,000 miles, I have not replaced the timing belt!
Needs a larger and brighter dome light. A temperature gauge would be handy. Additional option to add more speakers and a surround sound system to the car would be great!
