Summary:

I LOVE my Mitsubish Galant!

Faults:

I was hit in a parking lot before my first oil change. Be sure you get good insurance! The crumple zones do work very well!

The car has been recalled a couple times. But, the larger Mitsubishi dealerships are great. Try to stay away from the ones where Mitsubishi share a facility with other car companies.

General Comments:

I will NEVER again own an Accord! This car is much more comfortable, more stylish, better equipped, and a better overall deal.

Get the luxury package. For another 1500 bucks you can add leather and some other cool features. I also have the wing and a moonroof.

I am asked sometimes, "When did you get your BMW?".

One big problem though: lack of dome lights. There are two map lights in the front, but no lighting in the back.

Summary:

Great car. Bad company selling them

Faults:

Petrol smell outside of the car.

Funny 2nd to 3rd shift the first time when cold.

Exhaust makes a clanking sound when you stop.

General Comments:

Don't buy this car in New Zealand. The after sales service is terrible. Once they have your money they don't want to know about you.

Summary:

Best V6 car in this price range

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong so far.

General Comments:

One of the best kept secrets in the automotive world.

Ride is smooth, serene, and the handling is quite good for a car of this size/class.

Engine is strong, smooth, quiet and consumes about average fuel for this engine size/displacement.

Steering offers just the right amount of assist, feedback and reaction to input.

This Mitsu's lines/shape pays homage to the Teutonic styling of German cars, yet somehow promises the value and reliability of cars from Japan.

All these at an attractive price tag.

From the makers of the venerable Rei-Sen A6M fighter aircraft, should one expect any less? Mitsu has a looong lineage of top performers, that they continue this is no surprise.
