I bought my Galant brand new in 2004.
It's one of the very best cars I have ever owned!
After 8 yrs and over 100K miles, she still runs great! The only repairs done have
been one window motor, a leak in the floorboard and regular maintenance.
I love this car!
I have never had a car that has gone a whole year without a single problem, like my Mitsubishi Galant. I also have never put 30,000 miles on a car in a single year. This car has taken a beating and not once has it complained. I bought this car used reading 9,000 miles for only $15,000. It now has 40,000 miles on it. I also have one word of advice to all the people that write reviews on here, don't write a negative comment if you are the one who doesn't maintain your car properly!
Worst car I have owned. Lets see:
- A/c condenser went out
- 2 window motor/regulators replaced.
- Check engine light multiple times. for one, needed spark plugs, tuning etc
- check engine P0401 gas cap, valve replaced
- timing belts recommended change at 60k. way too early it seems imho
- need new struts
- power steering acts funny in rainy weather
I owned this car for a 5.5 years. The car got 5 years factory warranty. During the 5 years I've got broken the alarm button, A/C and oxygen sensor. Dealership has fixed that for no cost to me. After 5 years I've got broken the second oxygen sensor and two rear windows. It was unexpected to me and I decided to get rid of the car.
