Used Car: 2010 Mitsubishi Galant Review

Review Last Updated: 7/31/12

The 2010 Mitsubishi Galant has a spacious interior and a good reliability rating, though its unremarkable powertrain and inferior cabin materials put it near the bottom of the class.  

The 2010 Mitsubishi Galant is ranked:

When the 2010 Mitsubishi Galant was new, auto critics liked its large cabin and comfortable ride. Unfortunately, that’s all the positive comments they had for this 2010 midsize car. On the plus side, the Galant’s reliability rating is higher than many rivals, which should appeal to buyers who need a dependable used car.

The 2010 Galant’s powertrain is one of its biggest downsides. Respectable, predictable and acceptable were common adjectives used to describe the 2010 Galant’s performance. Test drivers said it wasn’t a car that was a thrill to drive, but the Galant will meet your needs for basic transportation. Since the 2009 Galant’s optional V6 engine is not available on the 2010 model, the Galant only has a four-cylinder, which reviewers said was loud and unrefined. Another sore spot is the 2010 Galant’s interior. Although there’s plenty of passenger room, auto critics said it was plagued with cheap materials and subpar build quality. The Galant also has one of the lowest safety ratings in the class.

The 2010 Mitsubishi Galant comes with a four-cylinder engine and a four-speed automatic transmission. Six airbags, anti-lock brakes, traction control, electronic stability control and an auxiliary audio input are standard on the 2010 Galant. It could be equipped with heated front seats, satellite radio, an upgraded audio system, Bluetooth, navigation and rearview camera.

Other Cars to Consider

Though reviewers don’t call the 2010 Galant ugly, they said the 2010 Mazda6 was one of the best-looking cars in its class. The Mazda6’s sporty styling reflects its performance as well. Test drivers liked the Mazda6’s nimble handling when it was new. Both cars have lots of passenger room and comfortable seats. Though the Mazda6 has the performance edge over the Galant, the Galant has better reliability ratings.

The 2010 Honda Accord excels where the Galant doesn’t, with better interior materials and solid build quality. The Accord also has more powertrain configurations, and when it was new, reviewers liked its strong available V6 engine, balanced handling and responsive brakes. The Accord has better safety scores than the Galant, but its reliability rating is slightly lower.
