2011 Mitsubishi Galant review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

The midsize Galant sedan is offered only with four-cylinder power. It competes with the Chevrolet Malibu, Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. It is available in two trims: the base ES and top-of-the-line SE.

New for 2011
A half-inch reduction in ride height this year provides a sleeker stance and a slight increase in fuel economy, Mitsubishi says, though EPA gas mileage figures remain unchanged. Both the ES and SE have more chrome molding, and the SE adds a standard power moonroof.

The Galant’s wide grille now has a new silver-painted mesh design and is flanked by rectangular headlights. Exterior features include:

  • Standard daytime running lights
  • Standard auto-off headlights
  • Standard 16-inch steel wheels
  • SE has fog lights, 18-inch alloy wheels and chrome tailpipe

Inside, the five-seat Galant’s center control panel is busy-looking. For a midsize sedan, the Galant’s backseat is notably uncomfortable — the bottom cushion doesn’t provide much thigh support. Interior features include:

  • Standard manual air conditioning
  • Available automatic climate control
  • Standard auxiliary jack for MP3 players
  • SE has moonroof, navigation system, heated front seats and backup camera
  • Rockford Fosgate premium stereo with steering-wheel audio controls on SE
  • Leather upholstery optional on SE

Under the Hood
The front-drive Galant has one powertrain, a 2.4-liter four-cylinder teamed with a four-speed automatic. Mechanical features include:

  • 160-horsepower, 2.4-liter inline-four-cylinder engine
  • Four-speed automatic with manual-shift mode

Standard safety features include:

  • All-disc antilock brakes
  • Side-impact airbags for front seats
  • Side curtain airbags
  • Electronic stability system

@175,000 and no major problems

I bought this car in 2013, used, with 35,000-ish miles on it. All I've ever had to do to this car was regular routine maintenance like oil, brakes, and one tune up. I put a lot of miles on my car. I kept up with the maintainance, and she's treated me well. I'm at about 175k miles and going strong. A year ago (at about 155k) I noticed she was losing some power, but a tune up got her right back to the car I love. I get an average of 25mpg combined City and highway miles even to this day. Only complain I have is that I cracked that front grill piece. It's made of plastic. And it costs aroundd $450 to replace so I've just been driving around with it cracked for 5 be years because I refuse to pay that much for a piece of plastic. Otherwise, great car!!!


It’s a nice family mobile

I haven’t really had any issues except for my air conditioner.other wise it’s a great running car.now on the other hand the paint on my hood is chipping.


Absolutely LOVE This Car!! Stylish&Reliable!

This car has so many features that I've always hoped I would have in my first car. From fuel efficiency to all year round weather condition durability, the car runs smoothly whether it's in need of a minor repair or oil change ,it doesn't effect the cars performance as it would others .
