Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: The looks
Cons: The huge deppreciation in value
Advice: Make sure you really want itIt accelerates nicely. Hugs the curves like its nothing. Its a headturner where ever I am. Great infiniti sound system. Its pretty economical on gas... I get about 27/28 mpg and on the highway I gotten as good as 32 mpg and its a V6. The worst thing is the value drops tremedously. It makes refinancing nearly impossible. It also is pretty loud in the vehicle. I was spoiled by my prior Toyota vehicles.
Pros: Keyless entry/power everything/huge trunk space/lots of room
Cons: honestly cant think of anything.
Advice: GO FOR IT!!I just bought a 2004 Galant. This car has amazing pick up for a 4 cylinder. It looks a lot like a Altima, but less expensive. It is a beautiful car and handles great!! It rides and looks like a brand new vehicle...and it is 2 years old.
Pros: Aggressive styling, exceptional power, impressive sound system, surprising leg room
Cons: front grill
Advice: You must test drive the GTS before you buy a car.Unbelievable acceleration. The handling has a German car feel - not what you'd expect from Japanese engineering. The ride is solid and confident. Pass with ease. I get looks and head turns all the time - people don't know what kind of car it is b/c there isn't many new Galants on the road. Make sure you use premium unleaded gas.
Pros: The titanium trim on the inside.
Cons: I love everything about it!
Advice: Buy this car, you won't regret it!I love my car! Lots of room, and power! Great luxury family car.
Pros: great fitting seats, low headrests
Cons: it is noisy when you take off
Advice: Buy it!I test drove an Outlander, Galant and Lancer. I couldn't see around the headrests on the Outlander and the Lancer just didn't do it for me. This is my 4th Galant and the best one so far. I had an absolutely wonderful car buying experience at Burlington Mitsubishi in S. Burlington, VT. As a return customer they bent over backwards to show their appreciation for sticking with Mitsubishi. The new look of the Galant is great, the interior is well appointed for someone who is vertically challenged the seats fit nice under the thighs (not too long) and I can see over and around the head rests. The new 3 year inclusive service incentive and 5 year warranty were one of the deciding features of staying with a Mitsubishi.
Advice: TEST DRIVE YOU WILL FALL IN LOVEI JUST BOUGHT MY 2004 GALANT AND I LOVE IT.EVERYTHING ABOUT IS PERFECT!!!!!!
Pros: The interior comforts of the Leather Plus package.
Cons: Absence of 60/40 fold down seating.
Advice: Find your nearest Mitsubishi dealer and enquire.The dealer insisted I take the showroom model 2004 Galant LS for a test drive and I am glad I did. It perfomed excellently in traffic. Acceleration(230hp) and braking (ABS/EBD) kept me at appreciable distances from other commuters. Outside noise was very minimal. Being showroom, this car has all the bells and whistles, which even included a DVD with screens mounted in the driver and passenger headrests.(Finding Nemo works great for calming kids on long trips) I can't say enough about the great service I receved from Jaime Luna, my salesperson, and all the El Paso Mitsubishi staff that assisted him in the sale of this awesome car. Thanks.
