I bought my used Galant 6 months ago and so far its been the most reliable car I've owned. It's the first import I've owned as well. Very comfortable to drive and I get 29 mpg with the 6 cylinder engine. Granted, it isn't a German luxury car but if your looking for an affordable used car with a good reputation, this is it. I like it so much in fact, i'm going to buy a 2012 model when my financial situation improves. I was bummed to hear 2012 was the last year but who knows, maybe Mitsubishi will make a new full size car with similar features. Overall, a good buy.

Great value for my buck

I just changed jobs and had to give up my company car sooner then I thought and bought this car without even test driving it from a dealer. I just had a good feeling about the car..Now that I own it I just love it.. Even with the 98,000 miles on it I could tell it was well cared for. Not even one door dig on it so I know the last person watched were they parked it to avoid door digs. Why would someone do all that and not care for the car..Right? I was sad to hear that this car will be dropped after 2012. Just when I find a car I like it's discontinued. Sure a Honda or Toyota is a higher rated car but also a higher price..In these hard times the Galant offered me great value for my dollar

This is the second Galant we've owned. The first one was a 2003 model. We bought it used with 140,000 miles on it and it drove very good for three years. With that type of dependability we decided to go for another one. The 2006 model we just bought has 60,000 miles on it but drives great and it looks like new inside out!

I love my Galant! It chose me at the dealership-I didn't choose it. I didn't even test drive it--I simple drove it away and you have been unable to catch me ever since. It handles great and I haven't had any problems at all with it. It is very fast (or maybe that's just me) I got a lot of bang for a little buck. Used with 22000 miles it was practically brand new. I'll never give it up!

I purchased this car used. It was a one owner lease and well taken care of. I never anticipated buying a Galant. I was in the market for a Camry or Accord. The value of this vehicle is great. I bought a 4 year old car with a warranty, Honda or Toyota couldn't come close. I have now owned this car for one week and absolutely love driving it.

Quick, sporty, more bang for your buck.

I bought this car with 3,000 test drive miles on it. It was brand new. Almost a year later - it still drives like new. Quick off the line, quick stops, it hugs the road through cornering. It has the look and feel of a European driving machine. "Poor man's BMW" is what I call it.

Awesome Car

The Galant is a very under-rated sedan. It handles great, even with the 4 cyl. has plenty of power when needed and can get great gas mileage. It handles very well and looks awesome. It is very unique, not many people drive them. Despite its EPA rating being lower than other sedans, I still manage to get 25-26 mpg by driving it in town. The Galant is an awesome car. Even after two and a half years it feels new. The resale value isn't very good, but that does mean a used one would be a lot cheaper than a new one and still a great ride.

This is my second Galant 1st was 2003 just purchased 2006. Love the improvements made to the newer model, but my 2006 backslips when on an incline. Brought back to the dealer and was told thats just how the car is and it was because the rpm weren't as high as the 2003 model.

I purchased a 2006 Black Mitsubishi Galant ES in January. The car was very nice but was lacking something. One month after I purchased the 2006 Galant ES, Mitsubishi introduced the 2006 Special Edition Galant. A beautiful car, everything I wanted in the Galant: style, substance, and leather seats. The SE was the type of car I was supposed to have, so I got. Love every minute of it.

A Very Decent Automobile!

This was my second purchase of a Mitsubishi Galant GTS and probably my last. Mitsubishi has poor quality control as both vehicles had major factory defects at under 1,000 miles. The car does handle and drive very well, though the engine does give you some wallop when you accelerate.

This is my second Galant and I really like the improvements over the 2001 model. The seating is more comfortable and the car has lots of power for a 4-cylinder. The controls are well placed and convenient. The bold Mitsubishi design is a welcome change from the mediocre designs of the competition.

The 2006 Mitsubishi Galant is a breath of fresh air. It is comfortable, spacious, fun to drive, has more pick up than I had anticcipated, has great looks, and gets good gas mileage. It is a family car with a sporty feel.

I don't see many of them on the road. The Galant is very under appreciated. It is every bit as good, and in some cases better than an Altima, Camry, or Accord. I think it looks better too, with an edgy, more modern styling, especially with the SE tail lights and spoiler. This car looks smaller on the outside than it really is on the inside. I'm 6'4" and I have plenty of head room and leg room. The interior has a very clean, modern look and the blue lighting is unique. The hidden radio controls on the back side of the steering wheel keep everything looking neat and uncluttered. Its four cylinder engine has more than enough power to move this car. I'm getting 25 mpg in town, over 30 mph highway.

Glad I Found This Car!

I bought my car after trading in my horrific '05 Toyota Highlander. I was sure I was going to buy either a Ford Fusion or Honda Accord (never another Toyota). There happened to be a Mitsubishi dealer next to the Honda dealer, so I stopped in. I immediately fell in love with the looks of the Galant SE. I test drove it and also loved the comfort, handling, acceleration, and quality/design of the interior. It's very sporty compared to the Accord, and is every bit as good in quality. Also, it's union made in the US by the UAW. This is important to our family. This car has top notch safety and reliability records, and the longest warranty in the market. The Fusion's made in Mexico and wasn't as nice.

My driving experience has been excellent: good road feel, firm, not stiff or jarring ride. I would and will buy Mitsubishi vehicles from now on due to this being my 4th purchased from the manufacturer. All have had the same qualities: excellent fit and finish, above average powertrains with power and efficiency, outstanding, unique styling (many compliments from friends and strangers alike).

I purchased this car in Feb. of 2006. I also got the protection options on it. I love this machine. It handles great, with tremendous acceleration, and outstanding options. The car has tremendous room, agile handling, and the blue lights inside make this vehicle very sharp. I would recommend this car to anyone. The sound system works great even with my satellite readio hooked up to it. The only suggestion would be to have dual power seats up front and back seats that lay down. This is an excellent car to drive and own overall. Great job to the employess that came up with this awesome car. To answer the guy's comment on 2/1/06 it does come with heated mirrors on the exterior.

I purchased the car a few weeks ago, after checking out many others, it was between this and the Honda Civic LX sedan. I went with the Galant because I liked the exterior look better, it felt more solid on the road, its acceleration is better, and the warranty is awesome. It's been a thrill to drive so far! One minor problem is the glove box does not close quite flush on the left side and the service manager is telling me it's normal. Of the twenty other various trims on the lot, not one is as out of whack as mine. I'll see if the GSM takes care of it, and I won't die if they don't, but expect better on a $20,000 car. Also, the silver console does reflect in the windshield, but it does not bother or distract me.

A little bit of everything...

I bought the car without ever test driving it - I didn't even like the way it looked. I used to own an Avalon XLS, which was the biggest and baddest luxury car I had ever seen. I also owned a 1993 twin turbo RX7, which outran and outhandled everything but the Corvette Z06. In February '06 I got in a crash that cost me both cars. I needed a car quick, and I didn't have time to shop around so I looked for the best deal I could get on a reliable ride. I've had the car for less than a week and I already love it. The car glides along highways and satifies the desire for a luxury-car-feeling, yet locks down tight onto the road when you get the burning desire to rip around a 90 degree turn at 30 mph.

A week ago I purchased a 2006 Galant GTS V6 and I am loving every minute I'm in it. I have only tallied 400 miles in it so far, but I am highly impressed. It has fast acceleration, quick turning, holds the road through curves, and turns like shes on rails. There is plently of room inside to give four adults plenty of room. A few improvents that I would suggest would be to heat the exterior mirrors and upgrade the interior rear mirror with the autodimming feature that it available on Mitsubishi's higher end SUV's. Also, the passager side seat needs to be upgraded to a high-end power seat. Overall this is a very reliable and enjoyable car to drive.

I looked at the Galant on a whim, while passing a dealer. I test drove the car and it felt very comfortable. I liked the style and the size (I did not want something too small) So far I am happy with it. I think it far exceeds the handling of the Honda Accord I test drove and is much more comfortable. I have not had any "glare" from the metal plate near the radio! I don't know what all the hype is about that. The only thing it needs is a lighted shift console. Other than that I have no complaints yet!

The automatic transmission (my very first automatic) is very smooth. Its accelerations is crisp. The ride is awesome, it corners well, and handle bumps effortlessly.

I have not had any problems with my 2006 Mitsubishi Galant ES so far. It idles a little low for my tastes, at about 500 rpm though. 750 rpm would "feel" more stable. Also, it will not take you long to dislike the silver trim around the radio/heater console. It shows a very bad reflection in your windshield. It seems like I constantly am staring at this reflection in my windshield, does anyone else notice this?

So far I have put 8,500 miles on my 2006 Mitsubishi Galant GTS V6 and have had not problems. It gives great, responsive power and has a nice balance of comfort and road feel. It is the roomiest vehicle in its class, comes with a solid warranty, and an outstanding sound system. Its handling is a good balance between comfort vs. road feel, thought the car is not meant to be pushed to hard (it's a sedan - doesn't take to sliding around corners well!). The abundance of torque and power make it a very comfortable car to be driven, it's hard to keep below 80 mph. Its clear guages, and autoshift provide some additional "enthusiast" feel. This is a very pleasant, reliable car - I look forward to driving it each day. What more can you ask?
