Nice comfort and performance--GTS model
Pros: interior comforts
Cons: a little light in the front endIf you're in the market for a used sedan and want one with some style and power check into these-i've had mine for 4 years now and i am very pleased.
great over all cheap car
Cons: very plain lookingI have put 55,000 miles on this car. I have changed the oil and filter every 3,000 miles and put one set of tires on it. No other cost to keep it on the road.
Pros: size of the trunk
Cons: engine noise
Advice: BEWARE(2004 model) I bought this car new in September 2004. The selling feature was the free scheduled maintenance. However before I had 15,000 miles on the car. I was told that the rotors needed to be replaced. Having had 4 cars before this one that was quite surprising. Before 20,000 miles the brakes needed replacing and before 30000 miles the tires needed replacing. I might say this was a fluke but my best friend bought one the same week for the same reason and has had the exact same problems and mechanics say that these problems are common. And as for the free scheduled maintenance all they did was change the oil and rotate the tires for 2 years. Very disappointing.
Pros: smooth ride--best without the price of a high-end luxury car
Cons: Hubcaps that came w/ the car
Advice: Good gas mileage--nice car. GEt oneI love this car. Fast, good pick-up, nice looking, smooth ride. Good audio sound.
Pros: Mp3 and sound system
Cons: the grill
Advice: Go for itWhat a nice car to drive, fast when it needs to pass on the road and understated enough when I want to, I can see the surprised faces of Honda and Toyota owners. I bought mine used, only 6500 miles, and so very happy I did, I know that depreciation is an issue, but for me it suits me well, I put a lot of miles in my car, so I don t expect to sell it 3 years later for a lot of money, same would happen for a Honda or Toyota.
Pros: auto headlights
Cons: Engine noise
Advice: Highly recommend it. Very solid and reliableI love the way this car drives. The transmission is very smooth, and has more than adequate acceleration, and the handling is great. The gas mileage for me has been averaging 24-mostly city driving. The galant is very comfortable for 4. The drivers seat is height adjustable. Controls are very logical and easy to reach. Fit and finsh is excellent. Most interior materials are good, but some of them seem cheap to me. I love the exterior looks. I had a sunroof installed, and this adds much to the looks. The exterior is easy to clean-not alot of hard to get into creases.
