What's the used Mitsubishi Galant estate like?

With its aggressive styling, the Mitsubishi Galant certainly looks a lot different to the established crowd. It's not bad to drive, but it's by no means the best car of its generation - a Passat is better on almost every count. However, the Galant is much cheaper.

That said, the Galant handles reasonably well and cruises smoothly on the motorway. The only major complaint is that it rides a bit too firmly around town.

The cabin is undoubtedly a weak point, too, because of some cheap-looking materials and a shortage of space in the rear seats. However, the boot is big and practical, you get a lot of equipment for a little cash, and reliability is superb.
