I was once the owner of an old and dilapidated 1999 Mitsubishi Galant. My brother-in-law sold me that car at a bargain price. I was fonder of the Lancer than the Galant, but after spending some time behind the wheel, it’s a pity that Mitsubishi decided to kill the Galant name in 2012 since it is one of the best-handling and smooth riding cars I have ever driven. Man, I spent a lot of money to bring that car back into shape, but the driving experience was all worth it.
In this review of the OHTSU FP7000, I was looking forward to rekindle the driving memories of the past inside a 2011 Mitsubishi Galant SE.
Sure, the engine and transmission are way behind in terms of technology and overall responsiveness, but the Galant remains a capable handler despite the mechanical setbacks.
The 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and 4-speed automatic transmission feel adequate enough for the task, but I sure wish the car came with more gears and a more powerful motor.
My test vehicle was fitted with OHTSU FP7000 performance touring tires and stock 18-inch wheels. The owner of the Galant is thinking about selling the car so he can make room for a brand new pickup truck or SUV.
