1994 Mitsubishi Galant GS 2.4 Liter DOHC 4-Cylinder (150hp) from North America


Better than My Old Accord


Car started to burn oil at about 100,000 miles. Needed new gasket.

Timing belt stared making annoying noises when car started up. Occurred at about 120,000 miles.

Car had a really hard time starting up. Needed new starter and flywheel. This happened at about 200,000 miles.

Car idled at about 3000 revolutions per minute (RPM). Needed an idle adjustment at about 220,000 miles.

General Comments:

I am a 24 year old women with 2 Children, and a nephew living with me. I couldn't find a better family car.

It may seem like a lot of problems, but it it has 224,000 miles on it. And it never stalled. The closest it got to not starting was when the flywheel went.

It is comfy, fully loaded with every single option. I got it when I was 16 when my 1986 accord died.

It turns many heads. Well it is the sport model.

I will buy another 1994 Galant as my second family car.

Makes me ask, "Honda and Toyota who?"

Mitsubishi owners look out for the belts on these cars. Every Mitsubishi or Mitsubishi-based Dodge I see had the belt just squealing away.

I would recommend the car for all types of people. they have something for everyone.

S model: For people who want cheap, but not spartan performance.

ES: Midrange model. Optional ABS

LS: Pure Luxury

GS: Sport and Luxury.

1994 Mitsubishi Galant GT Sports 2.0 twin turbo petrol V6 from Australia and New Zealand


High performance, good value, soulless gas guzzler


Nothing at all, I only owned it for 6 months. Towards the end the steering gave indicators of big trouble.

General Comments:

Extremely fast. Huge amount of top end power, faster than my 96 Subaru GT from 80kph to 200 plus.

4WD system good as good as Subarus.

Lots of weight, but around 240hp.

Shocking fuel consumption, far worse than the twin turbo Legacy - average 9k to a litre when driven softly although not much difference when thrashed.

Turbos constantly on (even when revs were under 2000!)

Just brought one of these about 2 weeks, ago. Yes it is a GAS Guzzler, and it definitely prefers the 96 + octane fuel. I got about 470K's for a 55 litre fill up!..

I had mine AA inspected - all that was wrong was the parcel shelf was missing. But have found another defect since owning it. When you put your foot down in 5th, doing say 120Kms, at about the 4500RPM range the clutch seems to slip, strange thing is that it does not do it in any other gear. So that will be nice and expensive!

However the car is much more fun than the old 1800 Mitsubishi Libero (auto) I used to drive.!

1994 Mitsubishi Galant ES 2.4 SOHC EFI from North America


A rich man's Hyundai, or a poor man's Toyota


Power window lifters: all 4.

Numerous manufacturer recalls.

Automatic transmission: 3 replacements.

Front suspension control arms: 4 replacements.

Electronic switches on the dashboard.

General Comments:

I could have tolerated these problems if they had occurred under the warranty rather than after the expiration. Mitsubishi has a long way to go before successfully competing with the other Japanese brands. Honda, Toyota, and Nissan do a wonderful job of assembling their car on foreign soil with foreign workers. Mitsubishi made a big mistake assembling their cars in Illinois.

Did you get my car? This sounds just like what happened to our car. Ever since the warranty expired, we have had problems with the windows, timing belt, 3 transmission rebuilds and much more. Can they get away with this? When does the lemon law come into effect. I will never be buying a Mitsubishi car ever again. It's all GM on out from here.
