good to see the Galant picking up. the interior kinda sucks but the basic car is pretty good. the ralliart version should help spark a few sales.

I am glad to see Mitsubishi making money for once. I always wondered why the Galant sold so slow, same with the Endeavor...they're both good vehicles. They usually get good reviews, yet for some reason people shy away from them.

Yet they're still too embarassed to give a complete breakdown by model, as even Isuzu does.

With the 'volume leader' selling 3,000-odd cars (less than the Vibe, Corvette, and beating the $60k+ S-Class by a dozen units), you'd be embarassed and also wondering what need there is to release the rest. That kind of says enough.

how many figures do you have? that's probably a good estimate, if a bit optomistic :P

I'm assuming you mean fingers. If so, I currently only have 8, your mom is borrowing the rest. :o:P

Did I mention the local Mitsubishi dealer operates out of a doublewide trailer?

I figured it would have been repossesed by now.
