1998 Mitsubishi Galant glsi 2.0


Hassle free motoring with all the extras


Brake judder when I got it. I was going to replace disks & pads, but the disks were expensive for this car so I just replaced the pads to see if it would help. I was surprised as it solved the problem. Apart from that no faults.

General Comments:

This is my third Galant and I have went past 100,000 miles on 2, 97,400 on this one and looking good for plenty more. The reliability of these cars is great.

I see from USA reviews nobody likes these cars (lemons) but I think European Galants must be a different car altogether.

Comfortable, spacious & plenty of power.

The only drawback is fuel consumption 350 miles on a full tank is not great.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1998 Mitsubishi Galant 2.5


A slow, but reliable and economical cruiser


Large depreciation - especially as Mitsubishi keep slashing the prices of new cars.

General Comments:

It's a bit slow for a 2.5 V6 - 165bhp - but it genuinely delivers an average of 35 MPG under a wide variety of driving styles. That's impressive. I bought this car as it was rated the most reliable in the UK - and it certainly is.

Which 2.5's are you comparing it to. I personally think they are quick for the weight of the car and the fuel economy looks to be superb for a v6.

I have a 98 galant ES and its amazing that I bought it for $15000 new and now they offer me $2000 to trade it in.

Vehicle value depreciation. It happens. I bought a 98 a few months ago for $2000. I bought my last car at employee pricing and 6 months later, I took well over a $1000 loss on it, which is pretty bad considering I got it for nearly $3000 under sticker.
