I'm so glad this car was waiting for me. It's nothing fancy but it's sleek and clean. It lacks all the bells and whistles of a premium car but other than that I can't complain. It rides like a dream and the sound system is powerful. Best car for the price.
2011 Mitsubishi GalantMistubishi is me - Chesterton, IN04/19/2012
This car is very economical, Im having such a great experience thus far. I have rented this vehicle and have driven to DC and it got 30 MPG, so when I saw that they had a mitusbishi in my price range I jumped at the chance. I have two little ones and there is space in the back seat and the trunk space is adequate. It may not have alot of "sleekness" to it, but flash at times does not mean a better car. I was very happy in high winds the car did not feel "light" and the outside noise content is kept at a minimum.
Proven and Reliable
2011 Mitsubishi GalantPT - South Texas08/27/2011
Galants (new or used) are great values if you are smart and don't pay too much for them. The 2.4l SOHC 4 cylinder motor isn't the most powerful BUT it's a proven and reliable design that Mitsu has been building for decades. The Mitsu service guys here say that they have never had to replace one (unless it was abused.) The 4spd AT may seem outdated BUT in its manual shift mode the Sportronic AT actually works very well with the engine. Shifted manually the Galant gets up and goes but it isn't a slug in Auto mode either (can't say that for the Lancer CVT in Auto mode.) The ride and handling are also well balanced - at least in the SE I own. The 18" low profile tires on the SE improve the handling a lot but the ride isn't harsh or jarring. The SE also comes loaded with built in Navi, Bluetooth, Homelink, rearview camera, 650W stereo, auto AC, power seat, seat heaters, sunroof, foglights, 18" alloys -- all for what a plain Camry LE costs. The interior is a bit dated but seems durable enough and I like the layout better than some of the newer stuff. The only real con is engine noise --the old reliable 2.4 motor just isn't a quiet mill. But all in all I feel I got a great deal when I bought my Galant SE -- just don't pay anywhere near MSRP.
