Identifying the Signs: Mitsubishi Galant Suspension System Problems

The Mitsubishi Galant has been around for more than four decades now, starting off as a compact car in 1969 and making it all the way through 2012 as a mid-size sedan. While its performance, exterior and interior design, and safety features are not as superior as other mid-size cars in the market, it has been an affordable decent family sedan car choice for many. Its presence in the highly competitive auto market for several decades is nothing but a proof of its reliability.

If you have a family car like the Galant, you most probably consider safety and smooth driving experience as priorities. Long drives with kids in tow can be tiresome. Add driving and auto problems to it and your driving experience becomes a disaster. Maintaining your car's perfect condition is a must at all times to keep those problems at bay. One of the maintenance checks often taken for granted is a check on the suspension system, which includes springs, shock absorbers, strut, sway or roll bar, ball joints, and axles.

Here are some tips to detect signs and symptoms that tell you your Mitsubishi Galant's suspension is due for a repair:

  • Watch out for bumps and unusual bouncing.

If you can feel road bumps and you find your car bouncing abnormally over every bump, something is wrong with your shock absorbers. Check the shocks and springs and see if there is leakage. If your Galant has sixty to seventy thousand miles on it already, your shocks are certainly due for replacement.

  • Notice how your car handles turns.

When you feel like your car pulls to one side when turning, your car shocks are probably worn out already, unable to keep your car stable, which poses serious rollover risks. You should have your car serviced to ensure you family's safety while driving.

  • Watch out for break dives.

When you do a sudden stop, much of your car's weight is transferred from the rear to the front suspension. The springs compress for about an inch for every 300 pounds they absorb. As more weight is transferred, the springs are pressed even tighter, causing the car to nose-dive. If you feel that your Galant abnormally dips when braking, it's time to get stiffer springs.

  • Look for leaks.

Shock absorbers are essentially oil pumps. The piston in the piston rod works against the hydraulic fluid in the pressure tube. When the suspension moves upwards and downwards, the oil is pumped out through small holes. Faulty shocks would then look oil due to leaks. If oil is leaking from your shocks, have your car checked immediately. If there's not enough oil between your shock's tubes, resistance level decreases which can cause bumpy rides.

  • Check your tires.

An inspection of your tires can reveal that your suspension is not properly supporting your car. Check for irregular tire treads, which could have resulted from uneven pressure applied on the tires. Although tires will eventually wear out at some point, suspension problems make them wear out faster and more excessively. Make sure to check your tire pressure regularly to detect suspension problems early on.

Mitsubishi Galant: The Story of a Standard Commuter Car

The competition for the best mid-size car in the market is definitely tough, but Mitsubishi never intended to be the best when it introduced the Mitsubishi Galant in 1969. The most likeable feature was probably the car’s ability to roam the streets at an average speed with its average-speced engine. Despite lacking on a lot of aspects when viewed side by side with other higher-end family sedans, the Galant still has everything from the viewpoint of common users. After all, it has a roomy interior and a decent acceleration, plus all the standard specifications of an everyday four-door car.

1969: First generation (the standard commuter)

Also called the Dodge Colt or Colt Galant, these models had the Saturn engine and a 1.4-L or 1.6-L fuel capacity. The first releases were only four-doors, but soon after, five-door versions were introduced as well as a two-door hardtop. Then, a coupe model that had a 2-L engine was developed, followed by a more compact coupe with a shorter chassis and a 1.4-L engine.

1973: Second generation (larger and curvier)

In this generation, the Galant had a 1,850 cc engine, which was larger and could produce 125 PS. Aside from a more curvaceous look, these models also offered a balance shaft technology that significantly reduced noise and vibration coming from the engine.

1976: Third generation (a new engine for better emissions)

The greatest improvement in this generation was the use of the MCA-Jet engine that had a secondary intake valve for improved emissions. The models still used the front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout, and versions released included a two-door coupe, a four-four sedan, and a five-door station wagon.

1980: Fourth generation (options for performance or economy)

In this generation, two engine types were offered for those who wanted performance or fuel economy. The Sirius engine was turbocharged for racer-types, while the Astron 4D55 engine was a typical diesel engine. These models were slightly larger and more spacious than the previous ones; there was more head space, shoulder room, and leg room. Also, the trunk had an increased capacity. The interiors also became quieter with the furnishing of noise-dampening materials.

1983: Fifth generation (shifting to front-wheel drive)

The drive in these models was moved to the front wheels. The body was wider by four inches, and the models adopted the anti-lock brakes for the four wheels. There were different fuel capacities depending on the trim. These had a hardtop and six-window design, which was very similar to Japanese taxis. An engine that could switch between two and three valves per cylinder was used; this type was able to combine high top-end power with low-end drivability, not to mention being economical.

1987: Sixth generation (major body and interior restyling)

The facelifts done in the new models resulted to a taller body and a rounder appearance. Aside from the restyled grilles, alloy wheels, a new bodykit, and full leather interiors were also the improvements. These cars were the first models to be used by Mitsubishi in the World Rally Championships because of their DOHC turbocharged engine and four-wheel-drive transmission.

1992: Seventh generation (shifting to the mid-size category)

The Galant shifted to being a mid-size car from being a compact, which was the original size since the first generation. These models had a unique suspension design, which had a multi-link structure with two lower arms and an upper arm instead of struts. Still operating on a four-wheel drive, the units had a smoother run due to the 2-L V6 twin turbo engine.

1996: Eighth generation (a faster, safer car)

Models belonging to this generation switched back to using struts from the double-wishbone assembly in the previous generation. These had a 195 horsepower from their V6 engine. Other minor improvements included the use of a five-speed manual transmission and an active yaw control for greater agility. Side airbags provided security on the driver and passenger sides.

2004: Ninth generation (getting bigger, heavier, and classier)

These sedan-only models were heavier and internally bigger. The four-cylinder engines provided 160 horsepower. The models had disc brakes in the four wheels, but the rear stabilizer bar was removed. Some cosmetic changes included an MP3 jack, an AC adapter, an audio system, a navigation system, and other interior alterations.
