My 7g Mitsubishi Galant — My first ride... Put a a lot of money into to make it what you see today... Lowered, 18" wheels, new paint, tinted widows, intake, exhaust, and stereo system... not a bad first car...

Pros: Good gas mileage, Handles well, looks good...

Cons: Not fast enough...

A Decent First Time Car —

Its my first car, I've had it for 3-4 years myself, its just time to upgrade. I'm expecting in 2014, and I'm hoping to find another Galant, newer year, just because I do enjoy the MItsubishi's, they're great cars, and I'm glad mine has ran this long. If you find one, in decent condition at a good price, get it. Update: 3/14/2014 In the past 3 months I've replaced my brakes, my driver side brake caliber, I had the driver side motor mount on top snap and land up against my timing belt cover, which lead to my AC compressor seizing up and having to cut the belt. Then after that is when things got really interesting. My timing belt recently came off. No good if that happens. I have my replacement engine almost ready to go in. While the engine was out my dad replaced the seals on my tranny, and the new engine. He also managed to replace a leaking rack and pinion on the passenger side. I would opt for a new car, but I'm 6 months pregnant now and cannot afford the payments. All in all having free labor and only $400 for the motor and him covering the rest of the small parts, saved me more. I won't have to add as many fluids now since all systems have been fixed. This car is an in town only car as well.

Pros: It was free from my family.

Cons: It brakes down a bit

I'll Have It Again, If The Mileage Was Improved And Weight Trimmed Down. — Mitsubishi Galant VR-4 6 cylinder 2.0 Liter twin-turbo 240 horsepower 4WD. What more could you ask for? Well... for once they can make it lighter. This weighs like a tank! Although the 4WD drive, stiff suspensions and 240 horsepower engine more than make up for the weight when it comes to the twisties. Definitely have this car in stick shift form! Guggles up premium gas though.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: A really bad a*s car!

Cons: Gas guggler, and premium gas at that.
