Extremely reasonably priced, about the best value for money out there. Very quick, reliable, responsive car which rides beautifully and just eats up the miles in comfort. V6 engine has all the power and "get-up-and-go" you need to get out of trouble.

Bought the car with 34k miles , now have 80k miles and still drives the same. The only maintenance performed have been oil changes and front brake pads once. Drives great on highways and passes other cars easily. Five speed speedtronic comes handy on snow days. great car for everyday commuter.

We bought our Gallant new in 2008 and have over 130k trouble free miles on it. NO. Let me say this again NO Major problems with this car. We simply do the planned maintenance. One downside is with the wrong tires, the car is loud. Alot of interior noise. Something just started rattling around in the trunk area .. sounds like something body related. I had a mitsubishi engine in my 1999 Grand Voyager and we ran that to almost 300k. 2 FOR 2, Mitsubishi has been good to me. A great alternative to the overpriced Hondas, Toyotas and Nissans.

Overall a decent car - Needs many small improvements

Overall quite pleased. Car yields about 25 mpg in 90% city, 10% highway driving. Like the sound of the engine when accelerating. Not that many on the road so it stands out with its sporty styling. Random noises occasionally come from the cabin. Can hear sound of gas sloshing around in back when filled full. Rear was redesigned in 2009 which looks somewhat like Lexus IS although with larger tail lights. Also added for 2009 was 4-wheel ABS, Tire pressure monitor, shiftable transmission and daytime running lights. The car sits lower to the ground than other midsize sedans and is more fun to drive than just about all except for the Mazda6. Has tight steering which lets you feel the road.

I bought the base version of this car... It's very plastic, especially the trunk that sounds like a tin-can when you close it. Vehicle has lots of blind spots but for the money, it's still okay to drive. One morning, transmission started shifting heavy, took it to the dealer and after 2 days I find out that a squirrel had chewed off a wire that was supplying power to the onboard computer.. My question is, whey leave such an important cable exposed to the element through the vehicle design in the 1st place. Most annoying issue was the squeal of the car when I reverse right after starting the vehicle. Dealer says is happens to all Gallants. Just traded in...

Excellent acceleration for a 4- banger. Wish the MPG were a bit better, have been averaging 22 miles with combo driving. It's been freezing here in MN so I'm hoping the MPG will tick up a bit in the spring/summer. Drivers seat is very comfortable and has great leg room (I'm 6'1, 220 lbs). Rear leg room space is great but the seats are a bit low. My 10 yr old has starting using her booster seat again in order to see out the window better. Purchased new, the 2009 Galant ES was $22K. I purchased mine a couple weeks ago with 49k miles for $9991...not too shabby!!!

Just purchased a used 2009 Galant ES with 49,xxx miles for $9991, brand new, this car was $22k! Traded in a 1999 Camry LE, which we loved, but were looking for a new model family sedan. So far so good. Plenty of space, decent acceleration for a 4 cylinder, and driver seat is quite comfortable. Doesn't have all the bells & whistles of Camry/Accord but pricing is a definite plus and reliability is above avg from what I've read on numerous sites. Looking forward to many happy years of worry free driving.

I like my Galant

I really like my 2009 Mitsubishi Galant. I have been driving it for a little over a month, and have no complaints. It had 29,000 miles on it when I bought, and now has 31,000 miles on it. I was driving a 1986 Lincoln town car, so it is a new experience. Other than feeling every little bump on the road, compared to the smooth ride of the Lincoln, it is a dream. The pick-up (acceleration) getting on the freeway is great, even before it's completely warmed up. The rear window defogger works pretty fast. The defrost works good, and the air-conditioning will freeze you out of there. The stereo system is good, with a nice cd player and radio, and the handling is good. I wouldn't trade it.

I was reading all of these reviews and I wanted to agree with what everyone was saying. I have had this car for almost 2 years now. I bought it used with 17,000 miles. The reason why I purchased this vehicle was its low sticker price. I must admit I liked it from the beginning the 4 clyinder has power. The reliability is great all I have done is its recommended oil changes and that's it. Very roomy, let me tell you that's really important to me since I'm 6' 250 pounds! I live in Vegas and with all the driving through the snow on the mountains or the 100 plus degree temps. This vehicle has performed just great! I'm about to do my 60,000 mile service! Great buy and great reliability

I've looked for over 4 months for a used mid-size car, I looked at 2008 Accord, I wasn't pleased with the road noise and the asking/selling price tag of $17,000+. My research began again, back to square one back to crash test ratings sites/edmunds.com and that's when I found the Galant. I liked how it drove more than the Accord and the price was over $8,000 less! Most used Galants for sale had been rental cars and with over 35,000 miles on them, but I kept looking and found some with less than 18,000 miles and for below $12,000! So I was sold! I couldn’t be happier - I did my research and I have saved over $8,000.00! I may do an update review if I’m still pleased with my poor/smart's Accord!:)

Impulse buy - turned out GREAT!

I saw this car in the show room (black w/ black leather, 18's. ) gorgeous. Made my heart stop. Sitting in it, I thought, "I can't afford this" . Killer sale, got it for like 22k and had them drive it out of the showroom. So far, so good, been almost 13 months. No problems, almost 14k miles. I'm loving it. Definitely a head-Turner. Have not see others like mine on the road thus far! Unsung hero. I think Mitsubishi has a lifer now. Definitely would recommend!

I've had a 98 Jeep Wrangler for a decade. So moving to a sedan is an upgrade in most ways. Interior, styling, ride, acceleration; ALL are an improvement for me. I know a Camry or Accord might be better outfitted, but so far, I'm digging it. It is at once distinctive AND doesn't call attention to itself. 2009 restyle fixes design incongruities from earlier models. 4 cyl engine does much better than I thought it would. I'm very pleased. If you are moving from a lesser car you won't have many complaints. I test drove a 2010 Kia Optima before this one, and the 2009 Galant kicks its behind. But then, I guess it should. Love it right now. We'll see if I feel the same after 9 years.

This is my first Mitsu (prior Camry & Accord owner). Not as refined as a Camry/Accord, but with rebate and deal, a far better value for the money. However, I'll be bringing it back for third service to hunt down an intermittent engine noise. Although disappointing on that one issue, it has been otherwise a good car (so far). A comfortable fit for a tall person. I purchase a car and drive it into it's grave. Camry's and Accords have gone the distance for me (10-15 reliable years). I'm hoping the Gallant will go the same distance.

I am a car guy. I bought the Ralliart used surprisingly. It looks great, drives and is simply a rocket ship. The Liquid Silver is a great paint and the wheels are nice. Leather is comfortable. The Navi is okay with accuracy but the features of the Navi and radio are terrific. My wife even enjoys the ride of the car. Winter is almost here and I'm curious to see how it handles snow. I am averaging between 420-450 miles a fill up.

This is the second Galant I have owned (previously had 2003 with 95,000 miles and that was a great car). Have had this 2009 ES for one month and have put 2,000 miles on it so far. Not a problem, not a strange noise, nothing. Very nice car. Great styling. Nice to have something a little different than everyone else has. Nice ride, love that ABS is standard. Comfortable seats. Very roomy. Very pleased so far.

Overall, Love It!

I bought this car new one month ago and enjoy the ride to work everyday (city driving). My 6'3" tall but lean body build fits into the drivers seat with just enough headroom. The ride is a tad noisy from the engine, particularly with the high rpm's upon acceleration, but not so much to be bothersome. I don't care about the "plastic" interior comments from some of the reviewers. I care more about the small side-view mirrors and wonder why nobody has mentioned this. Also, the turning radius leaves a lot to be desired. Why can't I turn into tight parking spots? The trunk is roomy. The rear passenger space is roomy for a small car. The good crash test performance gives you confidence.

This is my first Mitsu. I’ve been driving it for about 2 months now in summer weather on both city and highway. I’m combining about 25 MPG on 91 octane gas, which I think is great due to the elements. The car feels sturdy and 2.4 MIVEC engine picks up well on sportronic mode. It has a roomy interior and comfortable front and back seats. The controls are well laid out for easy access on the go. It comes with high performance all season tires which comes handy on the east coast changing seasons. This car is great buy! Everything sums up to a comfortable, reliable, spacious, sporty fun vehicle to drive. I would recommended this vehicle to a small to mid size family looking for a 4 door sedan.

Mitsubishi did a good job on the rear end of the 09, but hardly did anything to the front. The Sports Edition that I have does have the chrome top to the grill and darkened headlights but that's it. Its ok on gas and ok on comfort. On a recent trip, my backside really got sore so I assume the seats could have been made better. I do not like the waffle like dash, I can already see where dust settles on it. When in idle, you can't turn the headlights off, like when you're waiting for someone. To me that's irritating. There is not an accessory adapter in the console like the prior years did. Engine is very noisy compared to my 08 Camry, and the doors sound tinny compared to the Camry.

I just picked mine up today. After you factor price, 10 yr 100000 mile warranty, then Toyota, Nissan and Honda just don't make sense. So far, I've enjoyed driving it around. It's comfy and the 4 cylinder feels as good as any on the market. If you are in the market for a comfortable, modestly priced, long term family vehicle, not another run of the mil "Camry" like the neighbors, then buy this car.

The Galant Ralliart '09 is a very powerful and beautiful car; I love it. High points are acceleration, cruising power, sport leather seats, aluminum pedals, 20" alum. alloy wheels, stereo system, GPS system with many additional (and helpful) applications. Low points include cheap plastic interior, VERY tight suspension system giving a bumpy (and noisy) ride, adjustable seat limitation set too high, rattling seat belt mechanism, over-sized tail lights, and the GPS DVD player in the trunk is set in a very poor location. However, the Pros far outweigh the Cons. As an all-around sport edition of a mid-size car, I'm very pleased with it, but hopefully, the 2010 will address the low points.

Before I test drive my Galant, I had preconceived notions about the Mitsubishi brand. I'd always heard that they were unreliable, underpowered, and boring. But, once I put my foot on the gas, all of that flew out the window. The 2.4L has plenty of power, and has more pickup than my previous car, a 1999 Saab 9-3 turbo, even though it has less horsepower. The Galant rides perfectly on the highway, with some wind noise that some of my other cars didn't have. But, it handles better than I could have expected. Braking, accelerating, and cruising are all top notch.

After 3 used cars, the 09 Galant became my first new one and I love it! I came out of a 98 Galant and what a difference. I've racked up over 12000 miles in 5 months so I have a good feel for all aspects of the car's performance. I could nitpick and agree about the lower quality plastic interior and stuff, but that's not what I rely on to get me around town. The interior is driver friendly, spacious, and comfortable in any type climate. It pulls well going up mountains, downshifts nicely in bad weather and has smooth acceleration. I would wish for a few more horses on those short on ramps, but otherwise, it has plenty of get up and go.

Happy so far

I bought this car w/ 16mi. on the odo. And put just under 2k to so far. I really like the front grille and tail lights for 09. I'm about 6'1" and it fits me perfectly. I had a 02 Eclipse and 00 Linc Continental. This Galant is perfectly wedged between those cars in terms of performance, ride quality, features, gas mileage and size. The Galant gets me from A to B with good sound from the 140w system, decent pep when passing hwys, great safety features.

The whole experience of the 2009 V6 sport is extraordinary! Extremely smooth ride, and when take off power is needed, it is definitely there! Very classy and luxurious look with its leather interior and sun/moon roof. Definitely puts my old 2007 to shame. Look out US and Euro competitors... you have a big problem on your hands.

I just returned a Mitsubishi Galant ES '07 and was looking for a new car in or about the same price range. There really was no contest, Mitsubishi wins again. I purchased the 2009 Galant Sports edition 4 cylinder model. I am a big guy and have plenty of room anywhere in the car. The trunk space is huge. There are plenty of comfort features, heated leather seats, tire pressure. This model drives like a 6 cylinder and feels very sporty and has a comfortable sedan feel at the same time. The Galant is very reliable. For the money I feel this is a winner all the way.

I looked at the Camry because of styling, but after driving it I could feel the car felt more like a GM than a Toyota. I then looked at the new Accord and was overall impressed with the car, except for the comfort of the vehicle and ease of access to the controls. I even looked at Nissan which I said I'd never do again. The plastic interior still needs major improvement. Finally I figured I would look at the Mitsubishi Galant. The sport edition pulled me right in and for a 4 cylinder it has PLENTY pep. The handling is great and the car is extremely comfortable. Even the interior is top notch. I love my Galant. Toyota just lost another loyal customer and Mitsubishi gained a new one!

In time for 09!

Overall the outer styling is top notch. The interior is nice but leaves room for improvement. The plastics are cheap and that cheapness is everywhere. The plastic scratches very very easily. My car has 4000 miles and looks like it has 50,000. It has only one 12 V adapter. Cup holders are way to far back, seat heater buttons are in a horrible location. The car runs and drives great with the 4cyl motor. This motor does take a bit to rev up but then the power kicks in. By no means is this car fast from the stop, if you want that get that Raliart model. I have already had the turn signal break and the rubber on the brake pedal fall off ( warranty items). The gas mileage is not that great in town.

Having driven many different rental vehicles in the past two years, I had a good idea of what I wanted, and didn't want, in the vehicle I was buying. The 2009 Sports Galant from Mitsubishi motors is a great sedan with a moderate price. It reminds me of the Hyundai Azera but it costs several thousand dollars less. The 4 cylinder has good get up and go, and it accelerates quickly. The car handles well and the ride is very smooth. The car has a big trunk with the option of gaining more length by accessing the back seat interior. The car is the new canyon beige color and the exterior and interior is stylish. I am very satisfied with the car, and would have paid even more for it if I had to

We owned a Mitsubishi Diamante VRX 03 model and were looking to replace it after 5 years of trouble free driving, and found out the Diamante was discontinued. The other car makes were all test driven and some stood out more than others, like the Passat and Maxima sedans, and then my wife and I drove the 09 Gallant Ralliart. Well it rekindled our love for Mitsubishi with the build quality in the car plus the wonderful 258 horsepower 3.8 MIVEC engine and sport shift automatic transmission. All we can say is we recieved more for our money and fun for our dollar!

Great job!

Although Mitsubishi only made slight changes to the 2009 Galant, they seemed to pick the best features to improve. The ride is smoother and quieter. The new sport fabric seat is very comfortable and they even have power and 2-part heated fabric seats. They did away with the cheap plastic console and it look very tastefully elegant. A+ overall!
