1995 Mitsubishi Galant ES 2.4 from North America
It wasn't a bad lemon after all.
I had a few problems when I first got the car.
The car needed whole new braking system which some of it was covered by warranty.
The dark/ black Grey dashboard has a greenish color to it.
The blower motor didn't work.
I have disco interior dash lights.
The dealership for got to tell me about the electrical problems.
The rear defrost switch and hazard light switch no longer light up.
At 130000 miles my battery and alternator had to be replaced.
Then again less than a year later.
All the belts had been replaced 2 or 3 times.
The ball joints have had to be replaced due to a recall.
At 100,000 the a/c compressor fell out of the car replaced the unit and it fell off again both times in the dead of summer.
The cloth near the sunroof is falling down.
The power window control panel was replaced it shorted out. In the middle of the summer, that was quite costly.
The power windows also take their sweet time to roll up. It has also been noted that they get stuck in the cold weather.
There are some strange noises coming from the engine.
The cup holder doesn't pop out.
The lever to the gas tank no longer functions.
The weather stripping on the doors is now held on my super glue.
And for a family car, you can't fit anyone in the back seat.
At 156000 shes starting to burn oil.
The transmission only recently started to slip.
I know it seemed like a lot of things that are wrong with the car, but I have taken as best care of this car as I possibly could. She still has the appearance of just off the lot look.
My Mitsubishi was the greatest investment I made. A reliable vehicle. even at high mileage, handles like a dream, hangs curves. You have to expect problems with any vehicle. I accepted mine, but didn't spend a fortune on initial cost and repairs. Also for having the vehicle for 4 years it was so worth every penny.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
