2004 Mitsubishi Galant ES 2.5 from North America
Japanese reliability with a Mitsubishi touch
One rear strut leak at 90000 miles. Changed promptly.
Some rust dots on the front due to road stone chips. A plastic film cover over the front of the car would help a lot.
Brake rotors (disks) are getting deformed while heated, but braking is OK. You may expect more wheel lock on icy roads because of this.
Some plastics in the interior are not as good quality.
There's some rattling on the shifter button, but this can be easily fixed.
More important, I never pulled off the road because of any technical issues with this car.
Awesome family car, very reliable, easy to drive, responsive, comfortable, all for a low price.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
