I was a manager at a Mitsubishi dealership.
There was a "secret warranty" on certain Galants where the firewall seam would fair and leak water into the interior. Call your local dealer to see if your vin qualifies. The fix is to simply reseal the firewall crimp seam with silicone sealant.
Alternatively, sunroof equipped cars sometimes get the drain channels clogged in time. Make sure to clean drain holes and use forced air if necessary.
Lastly, some cars have heaters with pollen filters. If those filters become clogged, condensation can accumulate and overflow into the interior.
If any of these solves your issue, please rate my answer

most common problem is the a/c condensor tube is clogged and is under the car and needs to be cleared with compressed air. also the sunroof track has 4 drain tubes and the right front may be clogged or leaking. you can check that by pouring a cup of water down the right front drain tube in the sunroof track and see if water comes out by the right front wheel

There are 2 'weep' holes where tubes come out of the firewall and sometimes they get plugged. Get some compressed air and blow them out.
Also, inside the vehicle, there is a plastic pan that catches all water that might come down from the evaporator or leak from the outside into the interior of the car when the seal is not good between the firewall and the plastic pan that spans from the left to the right of the car under the dash board.
Get some expanding foam in a can and spray it up against the juncture between the firewall and the plastic water pan. This should seal out the problem if done properly.
Over time, the original foam seal goes bad and can actually flake away.
You mentioned the sunroof. Make sure that all the gaskets and that the sunroof does not leak onto the floor. This can be another source of wetness for your vehicle.
Try testing it by spraying water down from a hose to the top of the vehicle, or dumping a bucket of water all at once on the top of the roof. If it leaks, try using silicon sealant to seal any gaps that may exist in the sunroof.
Hope this helps.
