| ||General comments?||After having two very different cars (91' Grand Prix and 96' Jetta), I got a taste of many different aspects. The Grand Prix was quick and had very comfortable seats. However, the brakes were an absolute nightmare and it was entering death at only 76,000 miles. So I got a Jetta for its reliability, brakes, and nimbleness. However, it was not comfortable at all and was very slow.After experiencing all of these pros and cons I made a decission to find middle ground. The Galant was it! Aside from its beauty, it rides smooth, and brakes and handles good. Its 4 cyl is not as quick as my Grand Prix's 6, but alot better than the Jetta's enemic 4 cyl. I found it to be a lot more comfortable than the Altima and 626; and it had a lot more room than the Alero. I never tested the historically unreliable Ford and Crysler products, but I will say the new Taurus looks pretty nice. I didn't bother testing the Camery and Accord because they cost several thousands more and offer NO incentives (which could amount to several more thousand dollars). For the money it was the best decision. Unless you have a large family (in either sense), the Galant makes the most sense. I paid 17,500 for the 4 cyl. and I am satisfied with the power. If you are a speed devil, spend the extra 1,500 and get the 6 cyl. and be done with it. I have had it for 2 years now and experienced no problems to date. Time will still tell. Either way, it is very fun to drive and with its great price and financing offer (.9%) you can't go wrong. I believe they are now offering 1.9% for 60 months. Just the interest rate alone can save you close to $3,000. That makes it a $15,000 car when comparing it to a car that has no special financing. That makes this car fun to drive and fun to pay. Remember, you get what you pay for. For an $18,500 sticker you are going to have some things about it you wish were better. If you are looking for the perfect car then get a Lexus or Audi and pay for it.|
| ||Previous car||91' Grand Prix - much faster and very fun to drive, but at 76,000 miles it was dying. 96' Jetta - Desired more reliable car. It had excellent handling and braking, but it was very slow and very, very uncomfortable.||
