Fun to drive but has serious problems
By Pete from NY on


2000 Mitsubishi Galant LS V6 4dr Sedan


I bought this car brand new in Jan. ’01. It was great for the first 4-5 years. Fun to drive, great pickup and sound system. Traction control works great in the snow. I did all required maintenance at the dealership. First, the horn stopped working (sensor in the steering wheel had to be replaced in ’04). Then the hood started rusting from the inside out together with several seams in the engine compartment. The hood was replaced by Mitsubishi but I had to pay for paining and installation ($400). The struts had to be replaced at 105,000 miles together with wheel bearings and other parts of the front suspension (total cost with new tires $2,200). The car is only worth $3,500.

Best Features

Nice pickup, sound system, looks, all power

Worst Features

Better rust proofing, it needs a light in the middle of the passenger cabin, better quality of the leather on the seats (mine started cracking after about 4 years)
