Fantastic automobile

Vehicle: 2003 Mitsubishi Galant DE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I am the original owner of a 2003 Galant. I cannot express how much I have enjoyed this car. I purchased the car with 42 mile one the odometer. Now it has 201,000 miles. My only complaint is the paint. Every time I see a Galant like mines, the paint is faded terribly. Also the Brakes seem to wear easier than most cars. The climate control needed to be replaced but luckily it was still under warranty. This car has taken a beating. It had been driven every day for about 110 mile a day. Never had a major problem. Engine and tranny has been solid. The one time the car didn't start was because it needed a battery. Mitsubishi has put together a solid car that can compete with all major car brands.




Buy this car if you

I have had this car for nearly 70K miles. It is incredibly reliable. The only thing wrong is its comestic defects, like the finish becoming dull with age. I have had problems with the air conditioner, like many of the other reviews state and currently need a new air compressor. If you want a car that will save your life should you ever get into an accident get this one. It gets great gas mileage on the highway, but not so great mileage in town. Reliable reliable reliable though! I love my car




Hate the gas mileage

I bought this from a rental company. The car has basically been problem free except for the heater/air conditioner. A co-worker who owns a 2002 model is having the same problem. I was also disappointed with the gas mileage. Otherwise, the car has treated me well!




Batter than expected

Vehicle: 2003 Mitsubishi Galant DE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I got my Galant with 42 miles on it. Now it has over 125K. This car has been almost problem free from the beginning. The Heater gave out but the warranty covered the damages. The Brakes need to be services a bit too often. But other than that, this car is a gem. Always starts on point and has no issues to date. I do a lot of highway driving so gas mileage is OK for me. However city driving does tend to eat away at the gas mileage a bit faster. The horsepower is adequate. Sound system is great. Body is OK. Front bumper is very sensitive. Resale for the owner is terrible, but is favorable for a used car buyer. I highly recommend this car for someone wishing to purchase a reliable used car.

We have owned our Galant for approximately a year and are completely satisfied with it. It is fun to drive and has been reliable.
