2009 Mitsubishi Galant ES 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Bought the car with 34k miles , now have 80k miles and still drives the same. The only maintenance performed have been oil changes and front brake pads once. Drives great on highways and passes other cars easily. Five speed speedtronic comes handy on snow days. great car for everyday commuter.

Mitsubishi is a good option

2009 Mitsubishi Galant Sport Edition 4dr Sedan w/Prod. End 08/08 (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Review

We bought our Gallant new in 2008 and have over 130k trouble free miles on it. NO. Let me say this again NO Major problems with this car. We simply do the planned maintenance. One downside is with the wrong tires, the car is loud. Alot of interior noise. Something just started rattling around in the trunk area .. sounds like something body related. I had a mitsubishi engine in my 1999 Grand Voyager and we ran that to almost 300k. 2 FOR 2, Mitsubishi has been good to me. A great alternative to the overpriced Hondas, Toyotas and Nissans.

Overall a decent car - Needs many small improvements

Review

Overall quite pleased. Car yields about 25 mpg in 90% city, 10% highway driving. Like the sound of the engine when accelerating. Not that many on the road so it stands out with its sporty styling. Random noises occasionally come from the cabin. Can hear sound of gas sloshing around in back when filled full. Rear was redesigned in 2009 which looks somewhat like Lexus IS although with larger tail lights. Also added for 2009 was 4-wheel ABS, Tire pressure monitor, shiftable transmission and daytime running lights. The car sits lower to the ground than other midsize sedans and is more fun to drive than just about all except for the Mazda6. Has tight steering which lets you feel the road.

Could have been better

Review

I bought the base version of this car... It's very plastic, especially the trunk that sounds like a tin-can when you close it. Vehicle has lots of blind spots but for the money, it's still okay to drive. One morning, transmission started shifting heavy, took it to the dealer and after 2 days I find out that a squirrel had chewed off a wire that was supplying power to the onboard computer.. My question is, whey leave such an important cable exposed to the element through the vehicle design in the 1st place. Most annoying issue was the squeal of the car when I reverse right after starting the vehicle. Dealer says is happens to all Gallants. Just traded in...

Superb Value

2009 Mitsubishi Galant ES 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Excellent acceleration for a 4- banger. Wish the MPG were a bit better, have been averaging 22 miles with combo driving. It's been freezing here in MN so I'm hoping the MPG will tick up a bit in the spring/summer. Drivers seat is very comfortable and has great leg room (I'm 6'1, 220 lbs). Rear leg room space is great but the seats are a bit low. My 10 yr old has starting using her booster seat again in order to see out the window better. Purchased new, the 2009 Galant ES was $22K. I purchased mine a couple weeks ago with 49k miles for $9991...not too shabby!!!

Review

Just purchased a used 2009 Galant ES with 49,xxx miles for $9991, brand new, this car was $22k! Traded in a 1999 Camry LE, which we loved, but were looking for a new model family sedan. So far so good. Plenty of space, decent acceleration for a 4 cylinder, and driver seat is quite comfortable. Doesn't have all the bells & whistles of Camry/Accord but pricing is a definite plus and reliability is above avg from what I've read on numerous sites. Looking forward to many happy years of worry free driving.

I like my Galant

2009 Mitsubishi Galant ES 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Review

I really like my 2009 Mitsubishi Galant. I have been driving it for a little over a month, and have no complaints. It had 29,000 miles on it when I bought, and now has 31,000 miles on it. I was driving a 1986 Lincoln town car, so it is a new experience. Other than feeling every little bump on the road, compared to the smooth ride of the Lincoln, it is a dream. The pick-up (acceleration) getting on the freeway is great, even before it's completely warmed up. The rear window defogger works pretty fast. The defrost works good, and the air-conditioning will freeze you out of there. The stereo system is good, with a nice cd player and radio, and the handling is good. I wouldn't trade it.

Best car you might not know about

2009 Mitsubishi Galant ES 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Review

I was reading all of these reviews and I wanted to agree with what everyone was saying. I have had this car for almost 2 years now. I bought it used with 17,000 miles. The reason why I purchased this vehicle was its low sticker price. I must admit I liked it from the beginning the 4 clyinder has power. The reliability is great all I have done is its recommended oil changes and that's it. Very roomy, let me tell you that's really important to me since I'm 6' 250 pounds! I live in Vegas and with all the driving through the snow on the mountains or the 100 plus degree temps. This vehicle has performed just great! I'm about to do my 60,000 mile service! Great buy and great reliability

SECRETS OUT - SMART MAN'S ACCORD!

2009 Mitsubishi Galant ES 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Review

I've looked for over 4 months for a used mid-size car, I looked at 2008 Accord, I wasn't pleased with the road noise and the asking/selling price tag of $17,000+. My research began again, back to square one back to crash test ratings sites/edmunds.com and that's when I found the Galant. I liked how it drove more than the Accord and the price was over $8,000 less! Most used Galants for sale had been rental cars and with over 35,000 miles on them, but I kept looking and found some with less than 18,000 miles and for below $12,000! So I was sold! I couldnít be happier - I did my research and I have saved over $8,000.00! I may do an update review if Iím still pleased with my poor/smart's Accord!:)

Impulse buy - turned out GREAT!

Review

I saw this car in the show room (black w/ black leather, 18's. ) gorgeous. Made my heart stop. Sitting in it, I thought, "I can't afford this" . Killer sale, got it for like 22k and had them drive it out of the showroom. So far, so good, been almost 13 months. No problems, almost 14k miles. I'm loving it. Definitely a head-Turner. Have not see others like mine on the road thus far! Unsung hero. I think Mitsubishi has a lifer now. Definitely would recommend!
