mits has interesting option pack for the galant for 09. v6 with a new 5 speed auto and most options like auto climate and sunroof on the cheap. only option is dealer installed leather. goes for 20 and change. A nice option compared to some pricier midsize v6's.

and they have had some advertising support on their fabulous 4 cylinders.

Wow, they still sell cars here?

Not for much longer... I wish they'd just give up.

They have the resilience which is currently lacking in us.

They have the resilience which is currently lacking in us.

They're selling 15 cars per dealership a month. The article today predicts 3,800 dealerships to go out of business over the next several months. I believe several Mitsubishi dealerships will be included in that number (Mitsubishi had 570 dealerships in 2006; 520 dealerships in 2007; they're down to 480 dealerships right now).

Yes, GM has brands that sell in that volume or less, but those brands are mated with other brands to help sustain the dealership network. Mitsubishi has no alliance and are still their own rooftop from what I can tell.
