Review of the 2005 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, superb Infinity sound system.

  • Cons

    No manual transmission or full side curtain airbags, some interior materials feel cheap, not enough storage areas, no folding rear seat.

  • What's New for 2005

    The Galant receives seat-mounted side airbags with head protection as standard equipment on all models. A power driver seat with lumbar adjustment is now standard equipment on the LS. Rear floor heater ducts have been added, and Blackwood trim replaces Metal Mesh and Birdseye wood on the GTS.

Fun to drive

Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Galant LS V6 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

This car saved my life. I loved it and I'm looking to purchase another just like it. I would recommend it 100 times over.




Outstanding performance

Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Galant LS V6 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I traded in my 2002 Galant ES 4 cyl for the 2005 Galant LS V6 and was instantly happy with the performance and acceleration. Its power drivers seat is a great plus, although it should have a memory preset. I am extremely disappointed with the fuel economy, I am only getting about 12-15 mpg city and about 19-22 highway. I don't slam on the gas pedal, by am usually casual while driving to / from work. Maybe the car still isn't broken in yet with only about 3,000 miles driven so far. The interior design appealing, but the cheap plastic on top of the dash and doors is not easy to clean. What drew me to this car was the bold design. Its reliability has been satisfactory so far. The build inside and out seems solid.




Awesome

Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Galant LS V6 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

It was between the Mazda 6 and Galant and the Galant won hands down. Engine: The Mazda 6 was sluggish around 3,000 RPM's. The Galant however has awesome response no matter what the RPM range. I couldn't stand the stepped style shifter in the Mazda 6, the Galant had the same type transmission however a much smother shift pattern. Handling: This car sticks like glue, I would love to get it on a closed course and see what it's capable of.




Pretty as a pearl

Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Galant LS V6 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I was considering the Chrysler 300, but didn’t like it after the test drive (the viewing is really limited especially for the blind spot. Driving home a little depressed I stopped by the Mitsubishi dealership and was impressed with the style of the Gallants...went home did some research and a week later bought my car! The Dover Pearl color looks awesome and I'm saving to put some 19" rims. I love the smooth fast ride. Gas is pretty average (28-32 bucks to fill her up) I got a crazy deal 0 down 0 APR which was nearly impossible at the Chrysler dealerships. Overall, I love my car, love the price, and love the warranty.




A fun to drive peppy

Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Galant LS V6 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Having been owners of Mistubishi cars before and know how reliable they are and how long they last, we decided to get a new 2005 Galant LS. Besides being an eye-catching car which has had many compliments, it is a smooth driving car, roomy, and with its airbags both front and side and a heavy body, it is a safe car. Mitsubishi warranty is fantastic -- 10 years - 3 years of normal routine services (oil, change, rotate tires, etc.). For someone looking for a stylish car that lasts, no one would be disappointed with the Mitsubishi Galants.




I love my galant

Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Galant LS V6 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I received a 2004 Galant as a graduation gift and I love it. I searched from Nissan to Toyota to Honda. Not only was this in my budget, it was complementary to my style and image. I feel an obligation to always keep it looking good. When I first got it, I remember after getting out of the car always having to look back at the car in disbelief that such a beauty was mine. Love the big body design.
