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 two lighted mirrors and the windshield that does not let glare bother when driving at night.
Cons: no ashtray, noisey a/c, cheap cloth interior
Advice: when a/c is on, passing is not as quick so calculate your distance well.I love the way it drives, love how easy it is to park in small tight spots, corners are fun to take.I pick this car used instead of a new dodge neon.
Pros: Feminine Curves
Cons: Depreciates like Crazy
Advice: I would buy a Camry or Accord - same price and will hold their valueI was very happy with my Mitsubishi - no complaints what-so-ever.....until I went to trade it in. This car depreciates like crazy. While car shopping the kbb trade-in value dropped $700 in 1 week. That scared me enough to trade it in that very day, didn't want to see it drop again the next week. I traded in my 2003 Galant for $7500.00 - can you imagine a 2 year old car that someone paid $20,000 for being worth less then 1/2 that barely 2 years later.
Cons: Paint Quality
Advice: Don't hesitate, buy itOutstanding Performance, and I live in the Rocky Mountain area. It climbs hills with ease. Very comfortable ride, as smooth as a friends 2003 Lincoln LS, both in looks and in comfort. You can hardly tell the two apart, except when it comes to getting Value for your money.
Pros: the price
Cons: noisey engine (4cyl)
Advice: go drive itroomey lots of leg room ,nice low end torque for a 4 cyl. Clean lines has all the toys for less $$. Handling is chrisp,breaking is great hardly any brake fade.
Pros: The smooth transmission
Cons: The rear cup holder
Advice: Get a Galant ESMy Mitsubishi Galant ES has the 2.4 4 cylinder and starts up and drives really smoothly. The fuzzy logic automatic transmission really doesnt hunt for gears like my Honda Accord. It makes for a smooth drive when you live in a hilly area as I do. The car is very stable and I drove it through the middle of an ice storm. It always brakes very strongly and no matter how heavy the traffic jam is, the engine always idles smoothly. I've driven this car across Texas a few times and am amazed by the comfort and great fuel economy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this car to anyone who wants a reliable, comfortable and stylish family sedan.
Pros: the color
Cons: lack of space
Advice: buy an accord or camry!This is the worst choice for the price we could have made. We bought it because of the incentives. A huge mistake. The interior is flimsy and cheap. Few storage places. The space is cramped. On the positive side:decent acceleration, options and colors.
Pros: nice looks, super speed
Cons: i wished it would been better on gas
Advice: the galant in 4 cylinder can not be compared to the V6.Zippy ride. Overall good value.
