Wolf In A Sheep's Skin — This is the eight generation of Mitsubishi Galant, the VR4 model comes with a very powerful 6A13 2.5L Twin Turbo engine (280ps/39kgm), 0-100 with something like 6 sec, the build quality is good, the styling is good, the interior was spacious, the handling is good with 4WD and AYC system. It is so fun to drive, but one draw back is the gas mileage, one tank (50L) can only goes around 250-280km for "normal driving", and the original brake is too weak to handle this car!!!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Wolf in a sheep's skin

Cons: Nothing

Galant — If it was a new car, I would love it. Being that it has so many miles and issues, its a bit of a headache but since it is my first car of course its my baby. I like it.

Pros: Low to the ground, pretty reliable, good on gas

Cons: not too much giddy up left

1997 Mitsubishi Galant — For a 4 cylinder front-wheel-drive engine, the performance is fantastic, and it is a lot of fun to drive. The automatic transmission in these cars was an engineering nightmare. They go out on this model frequently, which is a major problem. The paint job is phenomenal, and the clear coat has held up beautifully. Overall, good car considering i didnt pay a dime for it

Pros: Performance, fit and finish, fun to drive

Cons: weak transmission, gas mileage unacceptable

Transmission Eater — had nothing but transmission problems with this car, and the lack of available modifications made this car a big no go for me.

Pros: lots of cargo space

Cons: transmission sucks and there are almost no modifications out there.
