2009 Mitsubishi Galant Sport V6 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Extremely reasonably priced, about the best value for money out there. Very quick, reliable, responsive car which rides beautifully and just eats up the miles in comfort. V6 engine has all the power and "get-up-and-go" you need to get out of trouble.

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.

Great engine, fund to drive.

No Ipod connection / aux input.

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.


Best Features

Gas mileage, Exterior looks, performance, endurance, reliability.


Worst Features

Improve dash layout

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


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.


Best Features

MIVEC Engine, Sturdy feel, low to the ground, good crash test ratings, Strong Heat / AC, Orange-Red Instrument panel at night, Roomy, Steel wheels.


Worst Features

Shave few hundred pounds off the curb weight for better pickup and mpg, Needs projector headlights, MPG computer, miles until empty, temperature display, timing chain instead of timing belt, dual exhaust, double wishbone suspension, 4-speed transmission??, upgrade to at least 5-speed, needs slightly more torque down low.
