Extremely Reliable Car
This car has excellent handling and power for the body. Drives very good in all seasons.. Feels and sounds sporty, changes gear very smoothly. Excellent pick up and good gas mileage! The only issue I have is that I am tall and don?t have enough headroom.
Pleasantly surprised - great vehicle
Bought it used about 3 months ago. Great 4 cyl. performance. my wife loves it. Easy to handle - good visibilty - comfortable. I'm a large person and find it very comfortable and easy to operate. Can't comment on long term use but so far very happy in all respects.
Fabulous car for the money
I purchased this car only a short time ago, and it is truly impressive. It handles like a small car, yet boasts more power and impressive interior room. The ride is smooth, and the exterior design is classy yet fun. The gas mileage is also a plus... 30 mpg highway.
The V6 kicks but
I rented one of these vehicles while my truck was being serviced. The first thing I noticed was my head scraping the roof as I got into the drivers seat. I'm only 5' 10". My last sedan was a MR2 so it's not like I'm used to big vehicles. The driver's seat can be lowered and tilted back but somehow it didn't feel right leaning back like a lowrider. I also wasn't impressed with the new look. The new grill looks silly. The sharp lines didn't impress me either. It just seems like Mitsubishi is trying too hard to make their vehicles look futuristic. One thing that did impress me was the 3.8 liter V6. A gentle tap on the gas and the car nearly lept off of the line. Having driven 4 cylinder vehicles that require high revs, this came as a big shock. The car sits low to the ground which gives the feeling of being in the cockpit of a race car however the handling (on the LS) was way too light for my taste. The car felt floaty which didn't give me a feeling of confidence when taking turns at high speed. I can't comment about reliability. With the plethora of midsized sedans on the market, I probably wouldn't consider buying one but I wouldn't discourage anyone else.
Bought Galant new, has so much pick up and features. Infinity CD Changer is awesome. Fun to drive and very good gas mileage.
My Beautiful Galant
I just bought this Car over the weekend, Used. I LOVE IT! Went from a 02 Ford Ranger to this, and I CANT beleve the pickup on this 4cyld. Everyone LOVES this car,I have had 2 full Size people in the back seat with no probs, very comfy, and spacey, I am 5'6 and I have a little prob with head room in the drivers seat. It could prolly be a bit higher. I Love the Stereo in this car, it sounds AWSOME. I love the ride, it is SOOO Smooth! It takes corners VERY WELL! I would SOOO Recomend this car. I have had a 04 lancer for 3 mo, and ABSOLUTLY HATED It. So I didnt think I Would like this car... But to my surprise I DO!
