1999 Mitsubishi Galant Reviews

Not the greatest car but it gets me from A to B. Had issues with vibreations from the front drivers side wheel. Never had much of an issues untill I moved causing my driving to increase 3 folds. Good as a first car. Wished I got a 300m though.
Had this car for 9 years now and only small repairs were needed.
