I used to be in the same boat. I'm on my 4th! Every year I needed to get a new one. Something wrong with this model of car. I have same one, Wait till you get to the whole "dies on idle" thing...When that happens IT'S NOT YOUR FUEL PUMP. You just need a new battery.. Also BEFORE you get a new starter get a new battery. I did this the last time (3 years ago) and have not had to replace my starter every year anymore. In fact I think 99 Galants have something off with battery's. Everything will point to a starter and Mechanics of course WANT IT TO BE so they can charge you more. But just for fun go buy a 40$ battery at Walmart and see if the car starts.....
