Pros: "Great fuel mileage, extremely reliable"

Cons: "Rear seat does not fold down."

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

"Mechanically great and pretty good power for a 4 cyl, although certainly not a fast sexy car. It does love to cruise at highway speeds and with the awesome high mileage, fuel saver tires I put on it, I am getting 32 mpg on the highway. My last car was a wonderul Honda Accord, and although I miss the styling and comfort of the Accord, (outside and particularly interior) I cannot complain about this little trooper. It gets me where I want and need to go, is great on road trips across the desert and through the mountains, is reliable and consistent. I recommend this car to anyone looking for great fuel economy, reliability and practicality."

Pros: "comfortable, drove well"

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

"I would definitely recommend this car for a small family. It was nice, drove smoothly and was reliable for the duration of my ownership. It wasn't fancy, none of that Bluetooth and touch screen and the model I had didn't have power seats but I enjoyed taking trips in it and was sad to see her go."

A trouble free well built family sedan.

"Very underrated against the Accords and Camry's,a bulletproof drivetrain,it's a shame that Mitsubishi did not decide to compete against the other Japanese full size sedans and folded their cards.Mitsubishi powerplants are as good as any on the planet,extremely durable and lively."

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."
