Mitsubishi Galant Estate
  • 1. Alloy wheels, twin front airbags, sunroof, remote central locking alarm, cruise control and four electric windows come as standard
  • 2. Although mechanical problems are very rare, when they do occur they can be quite pricey to fix
  • 3. The automatic gearbox can cause costly problems, but because this was an option, it shouldn’t be too hard to find a manual version
  • 4. The suspension is notoriously pricey to overhaul, so make sure it’s in good order by checking for uneven tyre wear
  • 5. The braking system is the most common cause of problems, so make sure the car stops in a straight line
