This is a front/top view of my black 2001 Mitsubishi Galant. Take note of the complete loss of paint on the roof, the leper-like splotches of corrosion on the hood, and the general lack of glossiness to the entire vehicle. This is the result of a defect in a paint coat that Mitsubishi, or the dealer, Sunrise Toyota, never told me about.
Worse, Mitsubishi has refused to repaint even the portions of the car that were ravaged by this self-consuming paint. The value of the car has sunk below zero. Several letters to the company have netted repeated refusals. I recently filed a complaint with the New York Attorney General. Stay tuned...
