2001 Mitsubishi Galant V6 from North America
A bargain car that has caused too many headaches
Two months after having the car I began to have air conditioning problems. After riding in the car for several hours it stops blowing cold air (in Louisiana at summer time this can be hot!). A year and a half later and seven times in the shop it continues. The manufacturer tells me that they cannot replace the car because the air conditioner is not a safety feature. They have only attempted to "repair" it and have never even offered to replace the air conditioner.
It rides smoother than my previous Honda and handles well on the road. I like the features that come with it without the raised price. l.
The lumbar support in the driver's seat is great for people with back problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I wouldn't be complaining if the ac was the only thing wrong with my car. At least it goes into drive!!! Roll down the windows.

I have to agree with the owner. A/C is a requirement in Louisiana I've had the same problem with my galant... But that's not the only problems I've had with mine .. So trust there's more problems to come

I have had my 01 ES Galant for about 130.000 miles now, with no problems what so ever just normal maintenance. Probably the best car I have ever owned.

I owned a 1998 MF and it was the best car I've owned so far, I'm actually looking forward to buying a Galant; great cars, great engines, excellent comfort, and the model sold in my country, Venezuela, has a better look than the U.S. models.
