Review of the 2004 Mitsubishi Galant

  • Roomy for four and enjoyable to drive, the Galant does without a few key features while sacrificing some practicality and refinement for the sake of style. Though unlikely to unseat any of the class leaders, it's still worth a look if you're not one to follow the crowd.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Excellent balance between ride quality and handling, strong V6, stylish and comfortable cockpit, roomy backseat, solid build quality.

  • Cons

    No manual transmission or side curtain airbags, some interior materials feel cheap, questionable ergonomics, needs more storage space, low trunk capacity, no folding rear seat.

  • What's New for 2004

    The Mitsubishi Galant has been completely redesigned this year to better suit the North American market. In other words, it's larger, has more power and additional features to better compete against the likes of the Honda Accord, Nissan Altima and Toyota Camry.

Never again

Vehicle: 2004 Mitsubishi Galant LS V6 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I bought this car because it looked amazing on the outside & test drove it once & fell in love. two weeks into my loan my car was going down hill from there. tune ups, alignments, Y Pipe had a hole in it. car was shaking really bad when the AC is on, shakes while stepping on the brake, the only time it did not shake was when it was in park. the worst car ever its a true RIP OFF. My door got stuck & I couldn't get out. I had to kick it out, and the whole panel came off. The dealer said its unfixable I have to get a whole new door. I hate this car

Piece of junk!!!

Vehicle: 2004 Mitsubishi Galant ES 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I purchased my 2004 galant used in 2007. It was a fantastic car until 2010. We have changed both converters 3 times & o2 sensors once. Also hsve had to have a new starter & a new altenater put on. Not to mention the AC doesn't work anymore either. Going to fix it & get rid of it. Will NEVER own a Mitsubishi again!!!!




Expensive to maintain

Vehicle: 2004 Mitsubishi Galant LS V6 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Worst car I have owned. Lets see: - A/c condenser went out - 2 window motor/regulators replaced. - Check engine light multiple times. for one, needed spark plugs, tuning etc - check engine P0401 gas cap, valve replaced - timing belts recommended change at 60k. way too early it seems imho - need new struts - power steering acts funny in rainy weather




Great car!

Vehicle: 2004 Mitsubishi Galant ES 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I bought my Galant brand new in 2004. It's one of the very best cars I have ever owned! After 8 yrs and over 100K miles, she still runs great! The only repairs done have been one window motor, a leak in the floorboard and regular maintenance. I love this car!

My 2nd galant. great car.

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Mitsubishi Galant ES 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I started off with a '97 Galant which I drove until 163,000 mi and spent less than $1000 on repairs for the 7 years I drove the car. I purchased the 2004 Galant as a dealer car. It had 12,000 miles on it. This car has had 1 problem w/AC condenser around 80,000 mi and it cost us $800 to repair. I've never waited for parts. At 130,000 mi we had the timing belt replaced and while engine was apart we had oil pump and seals replaced as preventive main. It cost us $900. We have 210,000 on the car now and it's going strong. We would buy another with no questions. This is a wonderful car to drive and roomy. We average 30MPG on trips. Oil changes are easy DIY. Buy new/used with confidence.




Blah!

Vehicle: 2004 Mitsubishi Galant DE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I like the way it drives and it's strong as can be for a non-turbo 4 cyl, but pray to God for guidance if you need to do much more than change the oil or air filter. This is my 2nd Mitzu and my last ever. Parts are hard to come by and expensive! My wife got it in 2009 and in 2011 before 80,000 miles it needed a head gasket, 2 struts and plates, front axle and two 02 sensors. Parts only avalible from Mitsubishi on all but the 02 sensors. Fortunately my mechanic works at a junk yard by day and stripped the heck out of a wreck and we were able to get about $2,000 in parts for about $500.

Other than that, anyone find the transmission "hard" on the Galant 2004? I have a 2004 LS and the transmission is hard to shift. Plus, when lifting foot off the break, there's a creak/groani...
