#2009 of 2502 Just sat in the new '06 Eclipse GS
Jun 09, 2005 (11:11 am)
I had an opportunity to walk around and sit in the new '06 Eclipse GS (4 cylinder)... Very nice car. Seats had more bolstering, dashboard materials a step up, switchgear though was similar to past models ( I traded a 2000 Eclipse RS for my '04 Galant LS)... Headlights had these lenses fitted externally to change the color of the beam to bluish tint, kind of a zenon look. For $20,500 it was a very nice package. It will be interesting to see how sales are... By this time next year they'll be blowing these out too...
Also saw the new '06 Subaru Tribeca SUV.... Strange beast, half mini van half SUV (seats 7, and it's fairly small)... The dashboard was gorgeous in my humble opinion. Looks alot like the dash in the Taiwan Mitsubishi Grunder (Asian Galant)...
And yes I was wrong about my MAXX pricing for juswheels above, no haggling will be necesary as the GM Discount price is the price paid, end of story... Unless you finance with GMAC then another $2,000 comes your way.. NICE...

Purchased the Maxx this morning.
Something you may be interested in - The regular rebates still apply. They are taken off the price after the deduction for the employee discount. This one, was loaded with the exception of leather seats and stickered for $24,000 +. With the employee discount and rebate the price BEFORE deducting my trade was $18,000. I don't think you can touch that with any other car in this class. I believe I'm going to be very satisfied.
#2011 of 2502 Aggressive Pricing Needed

Local Mitus dealer (really just a used car dealer who sells an occasional Mitsubishi) advertises base Galant (DE) for $500 more than a local dealer lists their new Camry LE.
And if one considers a large Toyota dealer about 100 miles away, the base Galant is $1500 more than a Camry LE.
As a longtime Mitsu fan who has owned one for about half of the previous 20 years I must say it looks really bad for this brand's survival. A lengthy recession would likely bump it off. Meanwhile new stick shift Hyundai Elantras selling for $8888 (with air/tilt wheel and radio).
#2012 of 2502 Congratulations juswheels!

SEE if you buy these vehicles well enough like you and I did ($7,200 off my '04 Galant LS) folks don't have to consider resale value.
Did you get your Maxx in Black or dark Gray?
Did you get the DVD player in the rear?
I love the way the reclining back seats turn the Maxx into a limo, and now with the DVD you can park with your wife up at lover's leap and watch the latest DVD's through your fine car sound system..... Great camping vehicle!

Thanks to all for the help on this:
The Mitsu is an excellent car but the dollars and cents of the Maxx, coupled with extra safety equipment and great utility made it my choice. The color is Silver Green Metallic. This color looks completely different in person than it does on-line. My wife likes the interior very much but still hasn't gotten used to the exterior look. I jokingly told her that we purchased a new 1986 Taurus at a time when it was the only "Egg With Wheels" , on the road. So, the new Maxx would grow on her, just like the first Taurus did. She replied, "What, Like a Wart". (She was just busting my chops)
Only had it a couple of days and so far I'm very pleased. Absolutely nothing to complain about.
That 86 Taurus reminded me of something. Remember the saying "Don't buy a first year car, wait till they get the bugs out". Well, I bought the 86 Taurus the first year it was made. Drove it until 1993, then gave it to my daughter to take to college and she drove it until 1997. After graduating from college she traded it in for a Saturn. Not bad for a first year car.
#2014 of 2502 Code for CD Player / Radio
Jun 18, 2005 (8:21 pm)
i bought my 2000 galant from a private owner recently. for some electrical work my mechanic had disconnected the battery. and on connecting it - the cd player / radio asks for a 4 digit code - which i don't have. the dealership is quoting a $45 charge to give me the code.
do i have any other options where i can get the code from?

That kinda s****. I had a 2000 Galant with the same radio security feature you speak of. Short of trying all 4000 code combinations, I think you'll likely have to shell out the 45 bucks. Actually, on second thought, I would not recommend just entering misc. numbers as the radio may be programmed to give you just several attempts - after several unsuccessful attempts it may not give you the option to try again. Did the car include the owner's manual? As I recall, included with the owner's manual were 2 credit card size documents that contained the code number along with the specific serial number of the radio that came with car. Whenever the car battery would drain completely, I remember having to re-enter that code.

Thanks for the update.
I was wondering if having the VIN, there is some database that can be looked up for the Code???

You need to get the serial numebr off the radio which means removing it then call the mitsubishi dealership in burbank california they will give you the radio code u need
