Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

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.

Exterior
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

Interior
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-horse...

Love this car

by Meeemo from Oak Creek Wi on November 30, 2018

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.
