2007 Mitsubishi Galant DE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I bought this car in Oct. 2007 just before the winter. I noticed what looked like salt in front of the rear tires. When spring came and i washed the car, i noticed it was actually paint that was missing. The dealership contacted mitsubishi and submitted photos. They said it was due to "road wear" so they would not repaint my car even though it was only 6 months old. Shouldn't they use paint on their cars that can stand up to road wear? I have filed a complaint with the review board but haven't heard back yet. When i see another Galant in a parking lot, i always look and there is the same problem to some degree in the same place. I haven't owned the car for a year and it is rusting

Worst Features

Design the back panels so that they don't catch the sand/rocks from the front tires, which sandblasts the paint away. Big design flaw!
