Q: Investing cosmetically in Mitsubishi Galant

asked by on

Just got a 2001 Galant.I like the way the car looks, but is it smart to invest in it cosmetically?

Don’t put too much money in it cosmetically, because Mitsubishis are decent cars, but in the long run, they do not hold up like Toyotas or Hondas. It’s not a car that can last 20 or 30 years like Toyotas or Hondas can. Don’t put too much money in them. You may put a few things in them, go ahead, but I wouldn’t spend thousands on them cosmetically--that wouldn’t be the wisest thing to do.
