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.

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.

Loose or Broken Crankshaft Pulley Bolt

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.

Wiring Corrodes And Delays Frontal Air Bag Deployment In An Accident

Road salt and snow entering the vehicle may corrode wiring under the driver's foot rest area, which could result in delayed frontal air bag deployment in an accident. Dealers will inspect the affected connectors and replace any found to be corroded. Dealers will also install a waterproof sheet over the connectors to prevent future corrosion. These repairs will be performed free of charge to resolve the concern.

Air Bags May Not Deploy In An Accident

The frontal air bags may delay deployment and the side curtain air bags may not deploy at all due to a fault of the impact sensors. Dealers will replace the affected impact sensors free of charge to resolve the concern.

Incorrect Vehicle Identification Numbers Printed On Certification Labels

The vehicle certification label on the driver's door area may have the improper vehicle identification number (VIN) listed. Dealers will install corrected certification labels free of charge to resolve the concern.

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. Great on gas, I recently got married in Vegas, drove from Glendale to Vegas and used only half a tank, so awesome on gas especially with how gas prices keep going up. My first ca...
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. I've owned the car since 2003 so I consider this very low maintenance. Overall excellent car. Drives well, good low end power with decent top end runout. KYB AGX struts/shocks make a large improvement in handling for not too much mon...
