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.
The automatic transmission may develop a 2-3 shift flair. This is commonly caused by an internal fault related to the reverse clutch assembly. Replacement of the rear housing and reverse clutch assembly may be required to correct this concern.

Mitsubishi Galant RecallsTransmission Cooler Pipe May Corrode And Leak Fluid
The pipes that connect the transmission to the transmission cooler may corrode and leak. Transmission fluid leaking poses a fire hazard. Dealers will inspect the cooler pipe and replace it if anti-corrosion properties are found to be insufficient. This recall began during March, 2010.
The attachment for the left fuel tank mounting strap may have been improperly formed, causing the metal to split. In the event the fuel tank is full and the vehicle is involved in a severe collision, the attachment bracket may break, allowing the fuel tank to drop down and possibly causing a fuel leak. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the mounting bracket and perform repairs as necessary. This recall is scheduled to begin on September 20, 2008. The Mitsubishi recall number is SR-08-005.
The ignition key interlock cable may allow the interlock cam to fall forward, allowing the key to be removed from the ignition when the gearshift lever is not in the park position. If this occurs when the park brake is not applied, the vehicle could roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect these vehicles and perform the required repairs. This recall is expected to begin during August of 2008.
