  • 45,000 miles


Lamp sockets for both left and right side brake lights burnt out at 5 years, 2 months with less than 50,000 miles. If one side went out I'd call it a manufacturer defect. Both sides, ...seems more like an engineering problem. Only the contact for the brake side of the 2057 lamp was melted and recessed. The tail lamp side of the socket is still clean. Put in a GM replacement socket which looks better made than the oem. Just glad the wife did not get rear-ended. Hung onto the old sockets just in case someone might be interested in looking at them. Lots of tailgaters in my state, so brake lights are important here.

At about 6000 miles my brakes began to squeak. The dealer replaced the rear pads. The brakes still squeaked. The dealer replaced the front pads, saying they had found a "service bulletin" which addressed the problem. For a short time the brakes were ok, but now (at 11000 miles) are squeaking again. I am trying to determine if there are others with the same problem or if there is in fact a recall/bulletin before I go back to the dealer and/or Mitsubishi motors.

Problems with the brakes on 2006 Mitsubishi Galant. The brakes were squeaking so I took it into the shop. They said they replaced the brakes pads this was at 16945 miles, again at 22380 miles, replace back brakes at 23403 now the brakes are gone again at 28552. They told me that it was just brake dust and no problem with the brakes but in less then 3 weeks the brakes are down metal to metal.
