It is a solid mid size car with lots of legroom for us tall gals as well as a large trunk. Furthermore, the quality of the materials has become subpar. Test drivers are disappointed with the interior material quality in the Galant, saying the interior also looks dated, especially with newer, more modern interiors in other cars. Even so, it's acceptably pleasant to drive, so long as you steer clear of any extreme driving. Good seat comfort, though the addition of a telescopic steering wheel would help some drivers fine-tune their positioning. Cabin storage is nothing special. I can't hear any engine noise because I am laughing all the way to the bank.
That day has passed, and now the Galant's stereo and climate controls look as if they came from an old boombox and can be difficult to read at a glance besides. And with the sportronic trans in manual mode I can easily keep up with the Bimmers etc. Most also like the back seat legroom. Large, well-lit gauges with soothing blue backlighting win a few fans in the automotive press, and a 2009 refresh made the climate and entertainment controls much larger and easier to use. From electric to electrifying, we break it all down in a concise, model-by-model review that begins on the next page. Galant is hurt by offering only a center pass through to the cabin, rather than folding rear seat backs.
Cabin storage is nothing special. Take it from the old man, you get a lot of car for the money and very good warranty. The 2012 Mitsubishi Galant is disliked by the automotive press for its use of cheap, dated interior materials. If I had found this car ten years ago I would have bought two by now. She was very businesslike and personable.
Com'on kids, make a adult purchase, you won't be sorry. The saleswoman was an absolute joy to deal with. After dark times nearly ground the auto industry to a halt, production lines are back up to speed, sending bright, shiny -- and most importantly -- quality vehicles into showrooms. Oh and the heated seats were a nice surprise on those cold winter days. Great on gas, great reliablity, great warranty. The car is beautiful and very reliable. No problems or recalls in almost 7 years of ownership.
Previous model years have scored four stars for rollover protection, but other ratings are lacking. Lots of car for the money as compared to an Accord or Camry. That day has passed, and now the Galant's stereo and climate controls look as if they came from an old boombox and can be difficult to read at a glance besides. The Galant strikes a pose like that of the old Nissan Altima, and in its early life it was almost competitive with the likes of the Altima, Accord and Camry. Some of my favorite features of the vehicle would be the spacious interior and comfortable seat design that aids in long trips.
She knew the details of our car like the back of her hand. But there's no getting around the fact that these features reside in a dated cabin constructed with some materials that don't measure up to the competition. But there's no getting around the fact that these features reside in a dated cabin constructed with some materials that don't measure up to the competition. The somewhat drab, industrial-grade interior is packaged well, with roomy areas for front- and rear-seat passengers. Then each time you turn the car on it goes back to the last audio type you had on. Furthermore, the quality of the materials has become subpar.
For more on this family sedan, take a look at our most recent. Its not running away with itself like Toyota and it is comfortable and a little different. The Bluetooth controls are in an awkward spot by the rearview mirror. Chevrolet remains in third, but… What a difference a year makes. I know 2 people who have had Galants for years and love them, so I'm looking forward to enjoying this vehicle for years to come!.
For example, the Mazda6 has 16. Engine gets a bit loud when you push it hard but settles in once you get up to speed. The rear seat does not fold down to permit cargo volume to be enlarged, and although there's a ski pass-through, the rear seats do not fold down. The exterior still strikes us as blandly handsome, and the efficient interior suffers mostly from open-grained plastics--it's well-organized and the driving position is good. Still, nearly every review complains of cheap-feeling, hard plastic interior parts that are unlikely to hold up well over time.
But one test driver says the back seat is uncomfortable because the cushioning lacks support. Buy one, save a couple thousand, and enjoy. I didnt know what I had been missing out on all these years. To make things easier,… Welcome to the latest installment of the only complete, model-by-model review of all the latest new cars heading to U. Anti-lock brakes, dual-stage front airbags, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, and side front and rear curtain airbags are all now standard on the Galant, as is stability control. If you have a small family or need a great commuter car and on a budget, do yourself a favor and go pick up a Galant! The steering is firm enough to the touch, the brakes modulate well, and ride quality is resilient.
