My daughter was in a terrible accident at a very high rate of speed on the interstate. The front end was unrecognizable. My daughter walked away without a scratch. This car can sustain major front and side impacts. We truly believe this car saved our daughter's life. We bought it brand new and never had a problem with it, very reliable. We will be looking for another one as a replacement.

My wife found this car for my son.
It had 100k miles on it.
It was the first car I bought with 100k miles.
My son has been traveling back and forth from college with this car and it's been a very reliable car NO PROBLEMS.
We have had the car now 4 years and it's hasn't cost a penny for maintenance other than normal oil changes and such.

The only thing my GTZ excelled in was handling.
Superb handling for a FWD.
I've already avoided two serious accidents from idiots failing to yield to oncoming traffic.
I literally pulled some McGuyver moves on the road with this car.
However, the exterior and interior is plagued with cheap manufacturing and design.
This car is an absolute embarrassment to be top dog in the American Galant lineup.
Models overseas make this thing look like a POS.
The premium fuel gets extremely annoying and I wish I would have purchased a Hyundai or Ford Mustang for the same price.
My advise, get a used Chrysler Sebring v6 if you don't need to leg room
The 2002 Galant features new exterior and interior design changes and other improvements to enhance safety and functionality. A new LS model with the four-cylinder engine offers a standard sunroof and upgraded sound system plus the option of leather trim. Mechanically, changes include larger front ventilated disc brakes (four-cylinder models), an additional remote keyless-entry trunk-opening function, an emergency inside-trunk lid release and available ABS on ES models. The exterior features updated front and rear styling, new 16-inch wheels (GTZ and LS V6) and two new colors. Inside, Mitsubishi has spruced things up with a new audio system faceplate, a rear dome light with the optional sunroof and a redesigned gauge cluster. New titanium- and bronze-finish (ES and LS) or carbon fiber-finish (GTZ) trim panels have also been added.
