Mitsubishi is a good option

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 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.

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!!!

Better than the reviews I've read

I've had a 98 Jeep Wrangler for a decade. So moving to a sedan is an upgrade in most ways. Interior, styling, ride, acceleration; ALL are an improvement for me. I know a Camry or Accord might be better outfitted, but so far, I'm digging it. It is at once distinctive AND doesn't call attention to itself. 2009 restyle fixes design incongruities from earlier models. 4 cyl engine does much better than I thought it would. I'm very pleased. If you are moving from a lesser car you won't have many complaints. I test drove a 2010 Kia Optima before this one, and the 2009 Galant kicks its behind. But then, I guess it should. Love it right now. We'll see if I feel the same after 9 years.

I purchased my car when I was left with the engine computer going out of my Yota on the highway going 70+mpg in late 2009 when all the recalls were occurring. Safety and reliability are important for me...I took a huge loss as I had negative equity when I purchased that car and then again trading into my Galant. I’d say by far the Galant has been the best vehicle I’ve ever owned. It was made in my hometown state of IL.. and I’ve only had to do some minor maintenance on it and the factory tires.. are AMAZING! I’ve special ordered the tires three times from my local tire dealer because of how well they held up... and they are cheaper since they’re petroleum based. My Galant was purchased with SIX miles on it and I now have nearly 190,000! I’ve thought a couple times on trading into a SUV for my growing family but feel this car will continue to be reliable and safe for my family for a few more years! I commute to work daily (70 miles) and have taken 3 19+ hour trips and never once felt it would have any mechanical issues. Although my family feels it’s time to move on to something newer with less miles, I’m sticking to this Galant until it becomes too costly to repair issues.. I hope to see 300-400k miles out of it! Reliability: 5, Heavy Car With Peace Of Mind on any road conditions: 5, Roominess: 5, I absolutely LOVE my car.. not sure on the newer models but this one is a 5 star rating for me!
