NHTSA percentage made in the U.S.: 56% (26% in Japan)
That's a Japanese nameplate, but Mitsubishi has made the Galant right here in the U.S. since 1993. One of the last relics of the old Diamond-Star Motors partnership between Mitsubishi and Chrysler now that the Mitsubishi Eclipse has entered its last year of production, the Galant has been a solid little four-cylinder family car for years. Its combined 26 miles per gallon is still a bit hefty for such an underpowered car, but standard perks such as touchscreen navigation, Bluetooth, heated seats and a sunroof make it the cushiest (if only) Japanese car an American union produces.
