I am with you about the Galant its amazing how much can go wrong in a short time I have 1994 galant LS with 122000 miles and the engine is rough, hesitates and transmission is starting to misbehave too. funny thing is no mechanic seems to figure out what is wrong and there is a general consensus that mitsubishi's a problematic wish someone told me before I got mine.

Sorry, but I just laughed so much after reading this review, I think you should cut your losses and just sell it for what you can get for it and move to another car. I'm now on my sixth galant (I'm in Australia) and none of my cars have ever had any of these problems. Worst two problems I had (one on each of two of my previous galants) was an auto transmission blow (not unusual for the auto's, as Mitsubishi hadn't quite got it right with them until the HJ series (93 onwards) ), and the other galant I had (a HG GSR) had the Electronic Suspension system start playing up. Other than that, just had any normal issues that one would have with a car, such as brake pads, regular oil changes, and replacement of leads and spark plugs.

I own a 1994 Mitsubishi Galant which has 231,000 Miles on the same engine. The engine still hums and performs with a lot of pizazz. I replaced the clutch at 147,000 3 fuel filters, 2 cap and rotors, 1 window regulator (manual) and 4 sets of plugs. The car has manual windows, seats, side view mirrors and door locks. The car did stall one time due to a clogged fuel filter. She has a 2.4 liter SOV engine. I can't be more pleased with the quality of this car and it's reliability in all kinds of weather. All makes and models of cars have lemons including Mitsubishi, someone out there can tell a horror story about his or her car, in my case this is a good tale of a great car.

I have had my 94 Galant LS for 10 years, 233,xxx miles and still going strong. As said above any company can build a lemon, and the ones that get lemons are more likely to post comments.
Also regular maintenance goes a very long way!!
