3351/3373 (Galant DE and ES without sunroof/w sunroof)
3560/3583 (Galant LSV6 without sunroof/ w sunroof)
3649 (Galant GTS, has sunroof STANDARD)
The Galant is HEAVY!
I really like though, even if it doesn't have a stick shift.
(ok an exaggeration, but c'mon!!!)
"didn't you know the heavier your car in the road, the more stable it is UNLESS your engine is a 4cyl??"
Please explain how number of cylinders correlates to stability/traction. I was under the impression it had to do with suspension, tires, rigidity, weight distribution. But I may be wrong.
Anyway, the Galant looks to me an undistinguished entry in this market. Incentives, incentives, incentives....
The car looks good, and the ES was priced for $18,997 before destination.
As for the packages, I tried building the car on the Mitsubishi site. I tried to select the ES with the leather package (includes side airbags) and ABS, but it seems that if you select the leather package you also have to select the sunroof package and diamond package ... but I'm totally not interested in a sunroof or an upgraded stereo! So is this supposed to mean that if you want leather you have to get all the other extras? I hope not.
Also, I am considering the 2004 Volvo S40. Apparently the 2005 is a major redesign, so there's like $7k off the MSRP of the '04. Plus, the Volvo gets a way better insurance quote than the Mitsubishi. Can anyone give me pros or cons to getting the Mitsu vs. the Volvo? Thanks!
P.S. Disregard my screenname; it was created when I actually wanted a Passat. Then I test drove it. Yuck.
