If you want to drive this car on winding roads at high speeds, then don't bother buying one. All other driving (especially motorway cruising) is a dream.

Mitsubishi Galant Coupe (93-96)

Value

4 out of 5

Very reasonable second-hand prices for equipment level, build quality, performance, etc...

Costs

2 out of 5

Some parts (exhaust system, wheel bearings) are extremely expensive for a car of this age/value. Other parts are quite reasonable. BE WARNED - 54k-mile service is very expensive. Trouble-free motoring, though.

Driving

Performance

4 out of 5

Good responsive performance from a 2-litre engine. Effortless high speed cruising. Handling a little spongy.

Reliability

4 out of 5

New exhaust at 50k miles. New rear wheel bearing at 52k. Expensive.

Image

3 out of 5

Rather bland image. The nose on the 24v V6 looks pretty cool, though.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Bum can get stiff when driving over 200 miles on motorway, but I am a fat bloke.
