2000 Mitsubishi Galant Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
Mitsubishi's Galant sedan was redesigned last year, and this year it gains several standard and optional features. Mitsubishi builds the Galant at its plant in Illinois, where it also builds the Eclipse coupe and Spyder convertible. Among the new standard features for all models are a keyless entry system, engine immobilizer system that requires the proper coded key to start the car, and a three-point seatbelt for the center rear seat position. Traction control is a new standard feature on LS and GTZ models.

Interior
All models seat five, though the two who sit in front will be more comfortable than those in the rear. The EPA classifies Galant as a midsize car based on interior volume of 111 cubic feet, although we have grouped it with compact vehicles based on its wheelbase. The trunk has 14 cubic feet, and the rear seatback is split and folds for extra space on all models except the base DE. DE and ES models have a new standard sound system with a CD player, and the LS and GTZ models get a premium Infinity system with a CD player. A six-disc in-dash CD changer is a new option for all models.

Exterior
An overall length of 187.8 inches gives Galant the body of a long compact or a short midsize sedan, but the 103.7-inch wheelbase is just half an inch longer than the subcompact Honda Civic's. Contemporary styling marked by chiseled fenders and sweeping rear roof pillars gives the Galant the appearance of a larger car.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
