The heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) temperature control knob may be hard to turn. Mitsubishi Motors has released a service bulletin outlining the necessary repairs. Repairs involve installing a new air blend door lever and link, lubing the blend door track, and installing a filter on top of the blower motor housing to prevent entry of dirt and debris. If the temperature control assembly has been damaged it will require replacement also.

The crankshaft pulley bolt may become loose or break causing loss of power steering operation and other related engine accessories. Some of these vehicles may be involved in a recall for this issue. Our technicians tell us that an updated bolt may be available. Replacing as necessary and properly torquing the crankshaft bolt will commonly correct this issue.
A rattle type noise may develop from one of the exhaust heat shields. Replacement of the affected heat shield may be required to correct this issue.
A brake pedal pulsation may be noted on brake apply. This is commonly caused by warping of the front brake rotors. Our technicians remind us that re-machining (turning) the rotors can correct this issue but the repair may last only a short time as the thinner rotors would be even more prone to warping. Replacement of faulty rotors with high quality parts is often the best option in these situations.

Mitsubishi Owners' Reviews
I have had my 2003 galant for about four years. It has been nothing but a pain since I got it. I go to sleep praying it will start and wake up praying it wont break down on the way to work. I worry about driving it all the time. Every time I fix one thing on the car the next day there is something else to be fixed. In the process of buying a new car now and should have brought the galant to the dump along time ago instead of wasting time and money on it. Will be staying away from Mitsubishi forever now.
I bought a 1999 Montero sport 7 years ago from a couple and it was well taken care of. after about 3 years of driving it, it started blowing out blue smoke.I controlled that alot with Lucas Oil Additive. I traveled back and forth between charleston, SC and Winston-Salem NC. It began burning oil and I foolishly took my chances waiting to put oil in when I could had gone across the street to the gas station; instead I drove another 1.5 miles and then it happened. the truck shut down on me and wouldn't start. the engine didn't lock up but still have some damage. I let it sit for over a year and now just starting to have it repair. I did have to have the fuel pump replaced also. the expensive part is the labor at the dealership it will run me $3200 to have engine done and the engine cost $1500 the rest is labor. but I refuse to trade in my truck even though it has 187k; the tax office still doesn't consider this high mileage for this truck. the truck is still able to be driven but I got alot of knocking going on. so I use it to run down the street to pick up my daughter from school which is about a 6 min drive roundtrip.
I have had my car for 9 yrs. and it has over 141000 miles on it when the worst thing possible happened, the timing belt broke and now the vavles and gaskets had to be replaced. I decided to get it fixed, because it still is a good car, but I just drive it too much and it gave out. It is going to cost over 2000.00 to fix, but I would rather do that then have a car payment. I'm telling everyone out there to get your timing belts check if you have an older car before something like this happens to you.
the brake rotors are all four bent. the shifter cable for manual transmission was broke at only 88k miles. too bad.
This car was given to me by my mother in law. It sat in the side yard for at least 3 years and had long blades of grass growing up thru the engine. I cleaned it up, put a new battery in it, cleared out the gas tank, put new gas in it and the car started right up. After about 2 months "She" had a lack of power. Found out "she" was running on 2 cylinders. I had the valves done with other stuff and you just can not believe how much power this little girl has. I can go thru our mountain ranges better than most cars on the higway. I have had to do more work on her but she is the BEST little car I've ever owned. I would replace the engine before I would give her up.
