Default 2002 Mitsubishi Galant

Hey guys. I just got my first car today and yes, you guessed it, it's a 2002 Galant. Unfortunately I don't know too much about the reliability of Mitsubishis and how many miles they can stand. I did check consumer report on the Galant and was pleased with it. Plus it was recommended as a good used car buy so I went for it. My car has a little over 65k on it. How much higher do you think the mileage can go before it meets its demise? lol. Of course, this is assuming it has been taken care of fairly well. Thanks in advance!

Hmmm... I got mine '99 Galant off the Chevy's dealership as well with 95k on it; running into 120 almost with no problems (had to change the oil filter last winter) and now I think one of the lifters has gone bad - taking care of it tomorrow...


I'm curious why Chevy's dealerships got Mitsubishis?!

maintain it and it will easily last 250000 miles. (fluids, filters, timing belts, etc.)
neglect it and it will die like any car.
