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.

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

I just got my Mitsubishi Galant 2 months ago (used) and thank God I got the extended warranty with it!
I just took it in to dealership last Tuesday and the ABS sensors weren't showing on the dash.
They ran into needing more parts and I don't expect it back until end of this week (almost a two week repair!).
Thank God for the courtesy car I am able to use.
I sure hope this isn't a sign of things to come with this car.
I loved it at first but this isn't good two months into a loan!
I hope to trade it in as soon as that opportunity comes up.
It wasn't great in the snow so I bought two snow tires for the front which did make a difference.
The dealership has been helpful I must say.

I owned this car for a 5.5 years. The car got 5 years factory warranty. During the 5 years I've got broken the alarm button, A/C and oxygen sensor. Dealership has fixed that for no cost to me. After 5 years I've got broken the second oxygen sensor and two rear windows. It was unexpected to me and I decided to get rid of the car.
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.
