I love the Mitsubishi Gallant. I traded in an older model and I loved that one so much that I just got another one. But I am a little upset that my older version of the same model had more features then this one does. Its important that I have two charge ports because I have a busy family the older model offered it but this one does not. Also the trunk is a lot smaller then the other one as well. Don't get me wrong this is a great car but there are some things that can definately be changed.
This is my first experience with a Mitsubishi product and over the past 6 weeks I have been very impressed. The comfort of the ride and the responsiveness of the steering is amazing. My partner is 6�2� and has no problem with leg or head room either driving or being a passenger. I am 6�0� and have had the opportunity to ride in the back seat with plenty of leg room behind the driver with the seat all the way back. The color of the paint is called �Rave Red� and is easy to see the difference from �Red� vehicles in the parking lots. I am very pleased so far with all the features of this vehicle which is the SE model. The touch screen navigation system gets very close to the desired destination even with new addresses having been created since the maps were created. (close enough to find even though on in the directory) The hands free telephone is wonderful and easy to operate, and the sound quality is very good compared to others that I have heard.
The replacement of the Diamante lives up to my expectations. The overall styling of the Galant is suberb, just enough flair for the money, not overdone. It has good lines and great appeal to the eyes. It handles easily in the busy traffic and is smooth on long trips of 300 miles plus. Gas mileage is pleasing in this economy allowing a single stop for gas in a round trip of 650 miles. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for an above average sized car, with comfortable seating for a larger individual who is taller than 5'11" and over 200 lbs. No cramping here. Ample trunk storage for golf clubs. The engine performance is adequate with the 2.4L 16 valve engine with optional manual shifting. Its is a great all around vehicle.
