Love The "silver Rocket" — This car has great acceleration for a 4 cylinder. Gas mileage seems to be around 21 in town and 25 or so on the open roads. It's fun to drive, has never let me down in the nearly 2 1/2 years I've owned it. Transmission shifts hard into reverse every now and then, but has not failed me. I use 100% synthetic transmission and motor oil and have since I purchased it with 88,0000 miles. Only had to do normal maintenance, but had to replace the heater core shortly after I purchased it. Planning to add tinted windows in the near future. An awesome buy for $1500.

U Betta Recognize — i love my car because it handles very well. the acceleration isnt very good but from 30 to 60 mph it is pretty good. it has needed prepairs once cause i rear ended someone but other than that it has been very reliable. this car cost me 5,000 dollars which i think is pretty good. it has 103,000 miles on it but it hasnt had any engine problems. i think this car is very fun to drive and u will find me happiest cruisin down the highway with the music cranked!!

Galant Lasts A Decade — Gets great gas mileage, and is a true workhorse! I bought this car new in 2002. Its been through several accidents, a dozen road trips, 3 kids, and was stolen. yet it keeps on kicking! When I initially decided it was time to retire this beast for a new car, I wanted to get the newest version of this car, only to find that it was discontinued! The car looks elegant, and rides smooth.

Best For And Average Citizen With A Creative Mind ... — The car is just a car, it depend on what you expectations are for me it's a good car for the money.it is really good to customize and makes a great bachlr's car, the 3.0 kicks pretty well and despite the cheap plastic consoles that breacks overtime, it's a cheap easy to drive and resurcefull little car, I call it mighty "G" :-)

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Cost of Ownership

55

My 2002 Mitsubishi Galant — I bought this car in December 2006 and I've been a Galant fan ever since! The mileage was pretty high as it was a company vehicle (Caribbean Maritime Institute) and its owner drove several miles to Kingston and back to St. Thomas everyday. However, it was and still is in great condition. In terms of performance its much better than anything I've owned before, especially as it relates to how it feels while driving at speed (80-160 km/hr). I had a minor accident on March 3, 2008 and the insurance hasn't come through as yet so its still damaged. I'm planning to sort this out soon though. In terms of appearance its a looker for sure, and that's why i bought it in the first place. I get 320km from a full tank of 90 octane fuel and I do most of the maintenance myself so the cost of ownership isn't so bad. I'm thinking of trading it in for a 2003 VR with the GDI engine, tiptronic transmission, sunroof ect.
