Mitsubishi car's are reliable. Just like any other manufacturer it had his "not so good" models. But they have improve the quality noticeably. Galant's previous 1997 were known of body integrity issues. 1998+ Galant's didn't encounter such issues, except for black colored 98-03 Galants. I have a 98 Mirage DE with 123k, 03 Lancer ES, 78k, 2 friends of mine have '00 Galant ES, 107k and '04 Galant DE, my stepfather still have his '98 Mirage with more than 200k miles on it and we all have had great experiences from Mitsubishi. So yes, you may had a bad experience but that doesn't generalize a whole company or manufacturer. Still each case is unique and should be analyzed of 'WHY' the paint faded or peeled off. For example my roommate has a two Accord's One 2000 and other 2001. Both always garaged. And their paints are going kinda matte compared with my 1998 Mirage which NEVER...belive me NEVER have been inside a garage. Always outside exposed to the elements. And Honda is not a bad car company. Just like all the others are not perfect. Not even Toyota its perfect. So instead of "feeling sorry for Galant owners" which we all know that you could care less, provide more detailed information about what happen to you're car so we can all learn from you're experience. Thats why these forums exist, to learn. Thanks.

Sep 14, 2006 (5:48 pm)
I have a 2004 Mitsubishi galant and the brakes have been squeaking loudly and constantly since it was bought brand new. it has 34,000 miles and the brakes have been replaced at 27000 miles. The dealer says that its normal but noise is to loud and constant to be normal. The sunroof also rubs against the metal when closing and the dashboard makes a popping noise on hot days. Can anyone help me out with these problems?
#2242 of 2502 2007 Galant Ralliart
Sep 30, 2006 (10:33 am)
Did anybody see this brand new 2007 Galant Ralliart on the market???? Well..........to see is to believe!!! This is one of the best Galants i've ever seen. Lots of power, style (exterior & interior)are both great & looks like an Evo Galant to me. If you look on Galant's Ralliart concept design, the seats are made by Recaro, and front disc brakes are both Brembo. Galants are under rated in terms of style & sales coz' it's built in the US BUT engine is great (made in Japan)............go for it!!!!!

Is this an '04 "new" Galant design or the 2001-04 Galant ones?? I have an '02 Galant, bought it as pre-owned 22K mileage & i also have the same problems w/ the brakes. I replaced the front brake pads w/ a ceramic one & the squeaking sound were gone. But, after 10k miles, it went back. My auto technician told me that "ceramics" are good but it does'nt last since it's soft. He changed my pads & rotors at the same time 40K mileage & used "Wagner" brand & the noise were gone. My '02 galant has a 95,700 mileage now & i guess it needs a replacement for my front pads again. Also, my timing belt is due for replacement. So far, that's the only major problem i've encountered w/ my '02 Galant & it still drives fast on the FWY.
FYI: Check out the new 2007 Galant Ralliart - is out in the market now!!!!!

Be sure to check out the Ralliart Galant in the sunset pearlescent (orange) color. Same as the Eclipse. It might not sound that great but when you see it...DAMN !!!
You put this in a parking lot with Beemers, Lexus, Acura's whatever & the Ralliart is the one you're going to check out first. Runs like a striped ass ape too. Best thing is that it's only a few K more than the GTS.

I have an '04 LS and I have these loud brakes too. Worse, now I get the TCL OFF and ABS indicator lights on all the time after driving some distance.
It's only been 20k miles on my car.

I would like to turbo my 2003 Galant, but they do not have a kit for it. I would like some pointers in how to go about putting a turbo on my car.

i have the same problem with my 2002 galant es. i have around 67,000 miles on it and it's in the shop again. this time it's going 2 cost approximately $1500. two of the mounts that hold the engine in place deteriorated, causing a shift of the engine which caused distributor damage. to fix the mounts/brackets and a new distributor $1500. i hate mitsubishi galants, they suck. as for the cold air i've been living in tx for 1yr so i haven't got it fix yet. i'm going home to new york and i'v been looking into getting some quotes. everyone i talk 2 say around the same $700-$800. the problem started when i purchased the bucket. i heard clicking, and what sounded like a fan that had something stuck in it. brought to the dealer and the mechanic said "that's just the sound it makes when you switch form cool to heat" "that's normal". I'm a girl, and by no means a mechanic, so that satisfied me. lol. by the way this was healy mitsubishi goshen ny. they finally figured out the problem just when the warranty ran out, and said it was going to cost me to fix it. i passed because i was moving to tx. the list of stuff wrong with the car i'm still making payment on go on &on & on. i suggest you get rid of your galant as soon as possible. after my car comes out of the shop i'm turning in my bucket for a honda.
