Model Highlights

Mitsubishi has positioned its 2007 Galant sedan to compete with the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima, all of which are well-entrenched opposition. This year, Mitsubishi gave the Galant new transmission, with the four-cylinder receiving a four-speed and the V6 being mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. All of them feature manual-shift modes.

The base DE, which starts at $19,899, packs a 2.4L four-cylinder that makes 160 horsepower. Standard features include power mirrors, automatic headlights, daytime running lights, an anti-theft engine immobilizer, power windows, power door locks, and remote keyless entry.

Most customers will want to step up to the ES trim. For $1,100 more, anti-lock brakes, cruise control, MP3 playback capability, and additional dashboard and console metal trim accents are added. Options on the ES include the $1,000 Sport Package, which upgrades the wheels to 16-inch alloys, adds a tire pressure monitoring system, upgrades the audio system to a high-powered Rockford Fosgate stereo with Sirius satellite radio. The Premium Package includes leather seats and a power sunroof for an additional $2,000.

The SE trim keeps the same powertrain but adds 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, a mesh grille, fog lamps, leather seats, and a center color display for the stereo that includes a trip computer and climate control.

Mitsubishi's 3.8L MIVEC V6, which generates 230 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque, becomes available on the GTS trim. To increase body rigidity, the GTS gets a front strut tower bar. A power sunroof, heated mirrors, a power driver seat, stylish white-faced gauges, a 270-watt Infinity stereo with a six-disc CD changer, traction control, and 17-inch alloy wheels round out the upgrades.

Options on the GTS include the Sun and Sound Package which provides a 360-watt Rockford Fosgate stereo, Sirius satellite radio, and a power sunroof for $1,000.

Mitsubishi's performance arm, Ralliart, who is responsible for the iconic Lancer Evolution, turned their attention toward the Galant and came up with the Ralliart V6. The same V6 now puts out 258 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The suspension was also tuned for better handling and stiffness, and 18-inch wheels replace the GTS's 17-inchers. The standard seats are perforated leather, and the stereo is the same Rockford Fosgate system found on the GTS. A navigation system is the only option, and runs $1,850.


Model News

For 2007, the Mitsubishi Galant sheetmetal has been slightly freshened and the standard transmission has been upgraded across the range. Now all Galants get a Sportronic automatic with manual shifting capability. Mitsubishi dropped the LS V6 trim and added a higher performance Ralliart edition. Prices are up about $700 on the four-cylinder Galants and about $2,000 up on the V6s.


Value Writeup

The 2007 Mitsubishi Galant is priced to be competitive with the Toyota Camry CE and the Ford Fusion SE I4. The Galant packs a more powerful base four-cylinder engine than Toyota and Ford, and it also offers slightly more interior room, with better legroom and headroom than a Camry or a Fusion.

Summary
MITSUBISHI IS RECALLING 45,988 MY 2005-2007 ENDEAVOR, GALANT, ECLIPSE COUPE, AND MY 2007 ECLIPSE SPYDER VEHICLES. THE BRACKET THAT IS THE ATTACHMENT POINT FOR THE LEFT REAR FUEL TANK MOUNTING STRAP MAY HAVE BEEN IMPROPERLY FORMED DURING A METAL STAMPING PROCESS. THE PROCESS MAY HAVE CAUSED THE METAL TO HAVE A SPLIT IN THE AREA WHERE THE BOLT THAT HOLDS ONE OF THE TWO FUEL TANK STRAPS TO THE UNDERSIDE OF THE VEHICLE IS LOCATED. IN THE EVENT THE FUEL TANK IS FULL AND THE VEHICLE IS SUBJECT TO A SEVERE COLLISION, THE BRACKET MAY BREAK AND ALLOW THE FUEL TANK TO DROP DOWN, POSSIBLY CAUSING A FUEL LEAK.

Consequence
FUEL LEAKAGE IN THE PRESENCE OF AN IGNITION SOURCE COULD RESULT IN A FIRE.

DEALERS WILL INSPECT TO SEE IF THE LEFT REAR FUEL TANK STRAP MOUNTING BRACKET HAS SPLITTING BEYOND A SPECIFIC LIMIT. VEHICLES WITH MODERATE TO SEVERE SPLITTING WILL BE REPAIRED USING A REINFORCEMENT CAP, A SPECIAL STRUCTURAL ADHESIVE, AND A RIVET TO REINFORCE THE FUEL TANK MOUNTING BRACKET. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING SEPTEMBER 2008. OWNERS MAY CONTACT MITSUBISHI AT 1-800-222-0037.

CUSTOMERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
