I just got a 2010 & completely agree with you. It's an enjoyable, classy ride. Love it so far!

Please keep us updated as time and mileage accumulate. You have only put 1 thousand miles on it.

I have had the sport package for almost 2 years now and love it. City mileage is OK @ 25 MPG, but highway is great. Almost 500 miles to a tank.

The only bad is the interior seat fabric and the dash are lint traps. Mine has black interior. I find the interior hard to keep clean.

I have an 09 Galant, and really like it for the most part. Has anyone else ever had problems with theirs in heavy rain or snow?
