2004 Mitsubishi GalantMonique S - New york, NY10/07/2015
I loved my galant gave me no problems at all!!! It was caught in a flood where the water levels was up to the windows, I was so scared to start it because I thought it wouldn't but low and behold it start right up. I took it and got it detailed inside and out to suck the water out of the seats... It ran great took it on several trips with no problems. There are rally available used. I'm currently looking for another one.
The Galant was the only mid-size car I found in my price range, and I have been pleasantly surprised by how much I like it. It has a lot of room inside for both front and rear passengers. It has comfortable seating all around. It drives and handles better than more expensive cars I have owned. Really the only things I don't like are related to the motor. Mine has the 2.4L 4-cylinder, and it is just not enough motor for this size car, and because the motor is working so hard to move the car around it doesn't get the kind of gas mileage we would expect from cars with small motors. Turn on the A/C and it feels downright sad. It's a shame really, because I really like everything else about the car, although a stereo aux input would be great.
Rocks and other debris tend to easily enter the front end of the vehicle causing damage to the air conditioning system. Three repairs in less than six months. The extended warranty paid the cost of repairs in two of three cases. Check 2005 and greater models for front end redesign.
