Used 2011 Mitsubishi Galant in Dulles, VA
Reviews for 2011 Mitsubishi Galant
Proven and Reliable
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 The 4spd AT may seem outdated BUT in its manual shift mode the Sportronic AT actually works very well with the engine.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.
Great on gas and comfortable with just the right amount of pep.
I purchased a Mitsubitshi Galant and I am loving it.The Galant has both front and rear seats features plenty of legroom. It has a huge trunk.The car drives smooth and the dash coordinate nicely with the design and the way that the dashboard lights up at night time.It's a bright orange color. The cup holders are kind of hard to get to while driving,because they are to close together. I would suggest for everyone that is purchasing a new or used car to review The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS),to see how well the car scores and drives on this test.It also determines the cost of damages on the car for you and your insurance company in repairs and how well the car performs in an accidents and turnovers. I do know for a fact, that my policy had increased because of the outcome of the results of the IIHS.My agent told me that the Galant was more expensive in repairs.
