Toyota needed years to establish itself as a producer of eco-friendly cars, but their budget is much higher.
Seriously, why care about a car maker that has no intentions on improving it's lineup? From what I heard, they will probably cancel all their bigger cars and become sort of the next Daihatsu... but without quirky cars like the Copen -.-
The Galant is still around. I think. It's just a neutered FWD sedan. I'm not sure how Mitsubishi went so wrong. They had the Galant, the Eclipse, 3000 GT and the Lancer.
