Mediocre car for a decent

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Mitsubishi Galant GTZ V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

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




Most reliable car i've ever

Vehicle: 2002 Mitsubishi Galant GTZ V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Yes I was one of "those" who bought this car brand new. Of course after two Fords and a Chevy, I'd wanted to give the foreign market a try. Honda and Toyota were too expensive and the Galant turned out to be a great commuter car. 146K miles later and I must say it's been the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. No major work outside of schedule maintenance. Changed the oil every 5K. I'd rate this car just as high as any Honda or Toyota from the same year. Are there things that could be better? Yeah usually there are, but I'm very pleased with the Galant.




Good used car

Vehicle: 2002 Mitsubishi Galant GTZ V6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

We bought this vehicle used during a really snowy time. I have never seen a car easier to drive in the snow. It has enough but not too many features, which is a plus for me. Too many cars out are loaded with features that you never use but have to pay for. We bought this used, so we did not loose the many off the lot value that everyone complains about.




Great car for the price.

Car is a great value for the money. The performance is very good considering that even the GTZ is more a family type sedan than a sports car.

Yes I agree that the Camry is nice and so is the Altima, that's if you want to pay too much and lack a sense of style....but as a GTZ owner, I can't get enough compliments. So what if it's a BMW knock off, at least I paid half the cost. Since I've owned it, driving has become fun again and I always feel safe driving it. It may not have been your first choice...but it's #1 with me.
