Asked by Feb 21, 2014 at 09:56 PM about the 2000 Mitsubishi Galant

Question type: General

I have a year 2000 galant with 170,000 miles on it. When I got it, it had 167,000. I have replaced the radiator, spark plugs, engine wires, powerd steering pump and axle and its got new oil and oil filter. The engine sounds great and dosent miss a beat and the car has no proplems that I know of. Also I am getting decent used tires. Is this car capible of driving 2074 miles on i-10 thru all those deserts and hills?

I don't see why it shouldn't be ok for that trip. All though I would not trust used tires. You don't really know what you are getting with used tires. If they have been sitting un used for a while they could come apart on you at any time. I would advise new tires.

Yea I know, but dang... new tires are like $600 compared to $130 used and they are not bat at all as far as condition.

I know the feeling about the cost. I have had some bad luck with used tires in the past. If you going to use the used ones just keep a check on them and make sure your spare is in good shape too. Drive safe and enjoy the road trip.

How can you tell if a used tire may be bad? or cumble up on you?

Look for bulges or dry rot on the sides of the tires. If you see any, replace the offending tire(s). Have a safe trip and take a couple of gallons of extra antifreeze (premixed), and a couple quarts each of oil, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, and brake fluid. Be prepared!! HTH. -Jim
