Pros: "Dependibility and low maintenance costs!"

Cons: "Have none."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Have had no issues small or big with this vehicle. General maintenance and when their was an issue (one time) it was covered by warranty, which was unexpected. I have driven many u.s. made vehicles that always had little issues and sometimes big issues. Have been very happy with this vehicle and would consider buying a new one if they still made them."

Pros: "Good all around, reliable with regular service."

Cons: "Ain't sexy, no mp3. No longer make the 6cyl"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"The Galant is one of the best vehicles I have ever owned and driven regularly. I have the 6 cyl which is more than ample power. It has the very basic creature comforts inside, ride is firm but not too harsh and the car has never left me on the side of the road. I have an excellent independent mechanic who does regular maintenance and repairs at reasonable cost."

Pros: "Big car feel in & out, drives great."

Cons: "Amazingly terrable around town Milage."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 3

"The car is very dependable. Drives and fells like a real live big car and has space inside. The drivers seat will go back till I can not touch the pedals. All great until millage comes in. As low as 15 MPG in winter around town. About 18 Mpg summer around town. Now the amazing part, 31.6 MPG on trips ??? All this with top of the line synthetic oil to help. Dealer said could find no reason / that's the way they are. So a GREAT car IF you can stand terrible millage around town."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Very reliable car. If they offered an updated 2014 or 2015 I would probably purchase another. My car came pretty much well equipped except for a sunroof. Other brands you have to pay extra for the same options. The only draw back I have found have been the brakes."

Pros: "great price, fun 2 drive, sporty, reliable, smooth"

Cons: "ac, mpg, dash tech, rare parts"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I got my Galant about 4 years ago with about 80000 on it currently has 201000. the car is very reliable I must say it took me everywhere with very little problems then. I think the overall comfort of the car is awesome I sometimes get tired while sitting in the seats because of the excellent arch support and durability. I do think the car gets hot a lot especially on summer days and the AC went out twice so its a common problem in this car. the overall car drives well it picks-up speed fast for a 4clydr excellent steering controls although I wish it has more of a sporty steering wheel. only big problem that I had with this car is timing belt broke a couple weeks ago and it is a interference engine so its killing my pockets at about $1200 so make sure you keep the maintenance up to par when it comes to timing belt. Another thing I dislike about the performance is on cold starts it doesn't have the spunk that it usually has on warmer days. personally I think the car lacks technology for the year for example like aux input overall quality of dash and radio. but if you are looking to buy this car she will do you well if you stay up on maintenance [[ there is a fuse on the battery terminal which is very very very difficult to find and every now and then they blow... it is cheap $1.29 but I had to go 4 hours away to get the part]]"
