2000 Mitsubishi Galant ES 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought my Mitz Galant in late 2000.
Retiring my Galant in late 2012.
Mileage....
273,000
(YEP 273K).
THIS CAR WAS A BUY ! !!
After driving so many miles, in so many different
weather conditions, with so many cargo runs
(Kayaks, Bikes, Skies, ) this car has NEVER
let me down.
How?

Great mechanic, keeping
with the timing belt maintenance schedule,

changing the oil.
So since she has been such a great car,
I would say it is time to retire her even though
she still starts EVERY time, no hesitation,
no stalling.
If only we could all have someone
or something so reliable.


Only one problem that ALL you Old Timer
Galant owners know...

Review

I purchased my 2000 Mitsubishi Galant in 2004 for $2400 (repossession). At the time it had 100,000 miles exact. Six years later I still have the car and the mileage is just over 243,000. The 2.4 Liter motor is bulletproof in my opinion and the transmission follows close suit. Aside from the necessary preventive maintenance I have had no major mechanical issues with the car. I call this one a good investment.


Best Features

Responsive engine, smooth shifting transmission and the car handles tight curves with ease. It's also easy in and out for my children along with a roomy trunk.


Worst Features

Interior build quality and bolt on wheel covers.

Review

I bought this car after graduating high school I put a good 80,000 miles on it in four years time. No major mechanical problems. Replaced brakes, tire, sway bar links at about 120,000 and then the radiator at 145,000. Great in Iowa snow storms. Unfortunately my model is black and the clear coat faded at about 100,000. This is a common problem with black Mitsubishi's. Other than that great car! Would recommend to anyone.


Best Features

Smooth ride


Worst Features

Paint defects are an eye soar.

Review

Purchased with 16K miles, now at 135K and still going strong. Mostly routine maintenance. The radiator developed a small crack at 125K and was replaced and I had to have new rear struts a couple of years ago, but that's about it. Fun to drive, very smooth transmission, quite peppy - even with the 4 cylinder transmission. Still looks great. Cons are minor: I have occasionally rode in the back seat on trips, and the back is not that comfortable for an adult. The cup holders are awkwardly located. This is on the small end of midsized cars (new Galants larger). Gas mileage 22-28 - OK but not fantastic. Overall, this has been a great vehicle.


Best Features

Leather interior moonroof acceleration and transmission excellent


Worst Features

need better placed cup holders better mpg would be nice

Review

Bought it new, now has 140k miles. Live in the DC area, so I needed a car with a little "zing" to get off and on the beltway. Have only replaced the O2 sensor. Reliable, responsive, good stereo. Everything still works (amazing with 3 teens sharing. Nothing has broken, though showing wear on the outside edge of drivers seat.


Best Features

Reliability, acceleration, handling, sunroof, roomy trunk.


Worst Features

Road noise, faux wood interior trim.
