I bought this baby 6 months ago with 40k miles on it and since then have driven for another 10k miles. Glad to report that I haven't faced any issues so far. Just got the fluids replaced once. Pros: I love the performance, peppy engine, huge comfy back seat with ample legroom, comfy front seats as well, large trunk, great warranty (5-year bumper to bumper & 10-year powertrain) looks better than the comptetition (in my opinion), reasonably priced spares. Cons: Not the most fuel efficient car - I get 22mpg city and 28mpg highway, interior fit and finish is slightly below competition, slightly coarse engine note. But the biggest factor that puts a smile on my face. I bought this car at an approx. 30% discount to an equivalent Camry/Acccord, which is amazing value for money. The 3-5mpg gain in fuel efficiency by buying a Camry/Accord is not large enough (in most cases) to cover the $3000-$4000 upfront premium you have to pay for it. Also you get a peppier engine as a trade-off. Therefore, I believe this car is good value for money if you are purchasing it in the used car market.

Wonderful Decision

by from Allentown, PA on December 8, 2008

After a lot of research, I've decided on a 2006 Galant. Perfect car: best warranty (5 years/60k), beautiful interior, and it definitely has a lot of power. I've also noticed many people look at my car as I drive by, something I didn't notice when test driving the typical Altima or Camry. You get everything with the Galant, and you won't be the tenth person in your town to own it like a Nissan.

Purchased a new 2006 GTS version. Tested several competing cars (Altima, Fusion,Accord) and found the best value/style to be the Galant. Love the 240 watt stereo system, leather seats, powerful engine and nice exhaust note. This car is not confused with the "clones" found at every intersection. Way to go Mitsu!!

I've driven my Galant for 8 years now and I highly recommend it. It's stylish, it's comfy and it's reliable. I've had no major issues with it, and it's at almost 130K miles. The only thing I don't like is that when the steering wheel is tilted all the way down, I can't see the speedometer, I have to tilt my head down. I mostly drive on the HWY and I hold the steering wheel down low, so it gets annoying every now and then, when I can't be on cruise control. Before that I used to have only Honda Civic's, and this one is just as good in my opinion.

This was my first foriegn car so I was not expecting the power to be so smooth and readily available. I like a performance car and drive as such. My galant can hold a tight turn as good as my 1982 Corvette, which really surprised me. Its fun to drive a sleeper and out perform many a surprised kid in the mustang next to me. This is not the fastest by any means but it does surprise many. It will easily do 100+ and remain stable. Mileage for me has been a steady 25 mpg average. I am happy with my car and it has not had one issue in 27,000 miles of "spirited driving"

What a nightmare

This is my first car, and what a problem it has been! I have had to replace the brakes several times along with many other item that should not have worn at 20,000 miles. Also for what I paid for the car I should have gotten more, but instead paid for a problem on wheels. I do love the look of the car and the performance, but i just wish I wouldnt have to replace things every few thousand miles.
