#2316 of 2502 fading exterior paint
Nov 13, 2007 (10:35 pm)
I purchased a silver 2004 Mitsubishi Galant and the paint is fading so extensively, it looks as though the car is 15 years old. I am a mother of three teenage boys and money is hard to come by. When I can finally afford to buy a car that was built in the same century ( 2007) that I am living in I EXPECT the automobile body paint not to have fading paint...expecially when the car was built in 2004.
I know I am embarrassed to drive my car in public., however, I put all my savings into buying this car., not knowing there was an external paint problem.
The only request that I have with Mitsubishi is that they reimburse all of the Galant owners, that have fading exterior body paint issues...a credit of a minumum of $1500.00 with customer's choice of colors to paint their vehicle at their nearest automobile body painting shop to have these vehicles repainted in a proper manner. If need be pay for rental vehicles for the duration of the painting process.
The least the Mitsubishi Car manufacturer can do is get us a supreme exterior automobile paint ( especially without lead) on their expense.
I have never been so disappointed in an automobile as I have with my 2004 Galant.
Maybe someone has a conscience within the corporation to make this right. Not all of Americans have the money to repaint their vehicles due to corporate neglect...
What a shame that we ( Americans) have to fight to get what we pay for.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
#2317 of 2502 why does the air system throw hot air
Nov 13, 2007 (11:01 pm)
I would really like to know why my car throws hot air thru the circulation system ???? I have noticed sinced I've owned the car that the ventilation system blows hot air.. I really can't afford to run the air conditioning system year round.
It can be 40 degrees outside and the and controls "off" and the vents are still blowing hot air...WHY????? Abviously the air is coming from the engine... That should not be happening.
I would like Mitsubishi to come clean and recall all of these problems. The sooner the better....if they want their business to continue.
Does anyone know how to contact Mitsubishi directly????

Have you had any luck with a repair?
My 02 Galant is doing the same thing. I replace the thermostat but still no heat.

Anyone consider a class action suit against mitsubishi? My Galant is doing the same thing and it is a 2003! It should not be having trouble with heat or air. I might look into doing that!

I would not trust that answer. the computer is not the cause of this. it seams to me that sometining is out of adjustment. How many miles have you driven it since the repair. Have you driven it in all kinds of situations such as cit rural high way etc.?
