A competent but unexciting mid-size family car

by Erik from Wichita, KS on Mon Oct 08 2007

This car does most things you would want it to do adequately well, but has no exceptional qualities to recommend it nor any exceptional defects to condemn it. Best points: - Brisk acceleration despite the somewhat unpredictable timing of the automatic gearchange (worst when cold) - Good braking performance - Reliable, except for (in my case) a transmission rebuild at only 63,000 miles - Little rolling round bends - Comfortable for short to medium-length drives; suspension absorbs well all but the largest bumps in the road - Good sound from factory stereo/cassette - Reasonably quiet; at highway speeds, loudest sound is from tire roar - Roomy interior for up to 4 people; 5 is a squeeze - Large trunk, although intrusive hinges can crush tall objects - Efficient heating and cooling, with separate hot and cold air vents to the face Worst points: - Indifferent but predictable handling, with front wheels soon scrubbing when pushed hard round corners - Vague road feel - Poor mpg for size of car (23 town, 27 hwy), with range of just over 300 miles max. - Awkward cupholder placement in front of radio - Rather small glovebox - Large gap between sun visors (although they can swivel to the side when required) Overall, you could do a lot worse than buy this model, but you could also do quite a bit better; its blandness gives it many competitors among similar models.

Very reliable car for the price

by Shleubs from Winston, Georgia on Tue May 16 2017

This is a good car. Very reliable. The design is about average but the gas mileage and the reliability make up for it. Good starter car for a teen or a computer car for a college student.

Our Take on the 1998 Mitsubishi Galant

Maybe Mitsubishi needs to remind people it has a mid-size family car.

Wracking your brain to remember what it is? Judging by the sales numbers, you're not alone. A lot of people are overlooking the Mitsubishi Galant.

True, the Galant, which was last redesigned in 1994, is in its final model year before another redesign comes in the next model year.

It's also true that more and more family car buyers are turning to sport-utility vehicles instead.

Still, several of the Galant's competitors — like the Honda Accord and Civic sedans and the Toyota Camry — posted sales gains last year while the Galant suffered a steep, 35 percent drop. The Camry even became America's best-selling... Read More
