Most comfortable Car in the world. No hasstle. This will keep running on and on without fail. No maintence to actual car is required apart from usual servising, tyres and breaks (depending upon your usage). Best Engine.

I have had a Galant 2.5 v6 for three years now and it has never let me down. It averages out at 30mpg. Even though it is now 7 years old with over 130k it still gives bmw mercs a run for their money with full leather interior full electric pack 6 cd system air con heated seats 138 mph all this for ( at the time of purchase ) £5000 what a bargain!
