Mitsubishi Galant

Mitsubishi Galant

About Mitsubishi Galant

2012 marks the final year of production for the Galant mid-size sedan as Mitsubishi focuses on making smaller cars and more aggressive rivals such as Hyundai and Kia grab market share in this highly competitive segment. As 5-passenger mid-size sedans go, the Galant often takes a back seat to market leaders Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and Nissan Altima. Yet the car does offer some features as standard that others don't, such as an automatic transmission and keyless entry on ES models and navigation with a backup camera on SE versions. But the car trails competitors when it comes to engine choices, power rating, fuel economy and overall creature comforts.

"My sister bought her 04 Galant DE new. Vehicle has 105,000 now and never ever has broken down or needed an expensive repair. Just oil, brakes and tires have been performed, the car has been fantastic. DE models are very basic but they get the job done. 2.4L engine is very peppy and good fuel economy."

"My RalliArt gives me the functionality of a sports car, but also doubles as a safe and elegant family car. I love the navigation system, the acceleration, and limited blind spots. Perfect car for the mom's that don't want a Camry..."

"I purchased the Mitsubishi Galant LS used with very low miles. I was attracted to it since it compared favorably to a Nissan Maxima but at a fraction of the cost. I however realize that it does not have the resale value of a Nissan Maxima. My purchase occured slightly before this economy meltdown and in hindsight I may have chosen a more fuel efficient vehicle, but aside from that it has been an exceptional vechicle. Very quick reliable,quick & reponsive car. Despite loving the car, I cannot throw around 5 star ratings, since I feel cars like Mercedes & BMW would have 5 star across the board. I would recommend this vechicle to people like me, that desire higher performance (TCS & 3.8L V6 & modified manuel & automatic transmission). Please note though this is one of those cars that performs better on premium gasoline and actually specifies that it is recommended."
