Mitsubishi Problems

The clear coat paint may peel

It is not uncommon for the clear coat paint to develop white spots and begin peeling. In most cases Mitsubishi will not cover out of warranty repairs for this condition.

The Clutch May Failure Prematurely

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.

AC Not Cold Due to Failed Pressure Switch

The AC may not blow cold air due to a failed pressure switch. A failed switch will require replacement to restore proper AC operation.

However, it has been very faithful since whenever it has a problem, it has always got me home. At present, will have to check the l...
I bought my 2012 Galant in March, so I would hope I didn't have mechanical problems which thankfully I haven't. No problems at all. Maybe wish it would have a bit more HP but that's always something I can do on my own.

Just about 170,000 miles on my GTS with 5 speed. Replaced the clutch once. Air conditioning once, body mount, brake pads and timing belt, spark plugs/wires.

KYB AGX struts/shocks make a large improvement in handling for not too much mon...
