Primary Use: Commuting to work The Beast! Pretty dependable car for the last three years I had it. He says it is the best car he has ever owned and would readily have another. The jibe was aimed primarily at Japanese carmakers who, it seemed, were working to a standard formula. Took about 70 bucks to replace.
Under the smooth skin the wishbone suspension, which was new to the model, endowed the Galant with safe, predictable understeer, a blessing for all but enthusiast drivers wanting a more thrilling ride.

This is the fifth Mitsubishi that I have owned the other four have been Mirage Turbos and I really like the products that they make. The often-overlooked Galant is rather bland in present form, but it wasn't always that way.
It broke down on me weekly for the first 3 months I had it. These cars look very sporty and are just a little bit different to everything else. In my opinion, it is also more attractive. Yes Review Date: 6th October, 2005. The four-cylinder model was dropped in 1994, but the V6 carried on until 1996 before the Galant badge disappeared from Mitsubishi showrooms.
This, still lovely lady, with just over 51,000 original miles, has plenty of spunk.

Also, my local dealer has been outstanding. These versions of the Galant are reasonably stylish and roomy but have unremarkable performance overall.
