Your interest has been peaked, so now you want to know where you can find the 2002 Mitsubishi Galant that was mentioned. As with any pre-owned car, the best place to search is the newspaper in order to save yourself the trouble of driving all over town trying to find the car you want. Finding out what is available in the classifieds helps you narrow your search down to the dealerships that you need to visit. After all, since you are going to be looking at a pre-owned Galant, it isn't necessary to only visit a Mitsubishi dealership.

Of course, you're still going to want to test drive the car before you take it home just to make sure it has everything you want and that everything is in working order. Even though you're buying an import, you still want to make sure that it's in great shape before you drive it off the lot.
