Mitsubishi Galant (1993–1997)

Last updated 25 August 2016

What's good

In June 2001 Mitsubishi was rated by Motor Warranty Direct as Britain's 5th most claim-free used marque.

What to watch out for

2.5 V6 four-wheel-drive with four-wheel steer a bit too complex to be a sensible second-hand buy.

Average warranty repair costs in 2003 Warranty Direct Reliability index (index 101.16 v/s lowest 31.93). Link:-


1994/1995 models (2,000 UK cars): possible fault with brake booster. (Announced August 2000. Owners to be contacted later.)

22/1/2001: Possibility that fuel tank upper panel and baffle plate not correctly welded leading to crack in the weld and fuel leaks. To be inspected and tanks replaced if leaking, otherwise protector plate to be fitted.

12/7/2001: 5,207 Galants built 1/1/1993 to 31/12/1996 recalled because watrer and dirt may get into lower arm ball joint leading to premature wear. Lower ball joints to be inspected and replaced if necessary.
