I love it!

It looks awesome. The sunset pearlscent (orange) color is gorgeous. I have the GS Sport version, 2.4L engine, and has enough power IMHO. If you are thinking about getting one, go ahead and do it :) Note that the cabin is noisy compared to other cars but that can be improved with an isolation kit. It's on my to do list.

Great car

My sister has a 96 Eclipse 100K + and it still runs!So far she hasn't had any major problems, the car has been really good to her. For my next car I'm going to look for a mitsubishi eclipse, they are reliable, good quality and cheaper than other models of different brands.

Sexy fun ride

I had always wanted a Eclipse and finally got the opportunity to get one. I love it! It is a very sleek car with awesome features. The radio glows in the dark and the stereo is so awesome! The power is pretty good considering it is a 4 cylinder. The car is a bit small but I am 5'6 and petite so it didn't bother me. There are a few blind spots. It is difficult to see out the side windows but after a day of driving I was getting used to it. The ride is a bit bumpy on highway but city driving is a breeze. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for a sporty and head turning car that holds true to its value.
