Most reported Mitsubishi Galant problems
It is not uncommon for oil leaks to develop from the valve cover gaskets. Replacement of the leaking gaskets will repair this issue.
A noise may develop from the steering column, this is commonly caused by the turn signal cancel cam which may require replacement.
There have been reports of airbags not deploying in the event of a frontal impact. Some claim that a shorted airbag wire harness can cause this to occur. Unfortunately there is no diagnoses that will isolate this problem other than fault codes stored in the airbag control module. Our technicians recommend to have any airbag light issues diagnosed and repaired in order to help ensure the airbags will deploy when needed.
The clutch may fail prematurely or cause a buzzing type noise from the dash area. It has been recommended by some that a high quality aftermarket replacement clutch may provide increased longevity over a clutch purchased from the dealer.
