Just a fun, fast car to drive. Lots of power and a comfortable ride when cruising. Stiff, responsive steering, makes it feel like a race car. When shifting the 6 speed manual trans, she just keeps giving more and more power. Before you know it, you're cruising at 80 mph. :D
The entire process from walking in the door at Carmax and approached my a salesman, showing him the Eclipse they had off the Internet on my iPhone too driving off of the lot was very relaxed and professional. The car itself, I have had it since the 23rd of December, 2011. So far I am very impressed! I have always driven a four door sedan. Infiniti G35x and others of the like. The 2005 G35x was most recent car. I think the Eclipse GS Syder 2007 handles the road better and feels more safe and stable in a curve at moderate speeds. I don't get the feeling that the car weight is shifting causing the car to tip in a curve. I could tell more. However, I'm not. For me being a safe and cautious driver but, when I know there aren't any other cars around so that I'm the only one that could get hurt I have a little fun with it. Just bc I haven't had it long so I want to see how it does. In my opinion it is a great car. For the price, well worth it. It is definitely one of the more inexpensive cars for maintenance and repair. I bought the 150,000 mile warranty. The car only had 40,000 miles as an 2007. I calculated MY average miles a year by the finance term of payoff. Personally I don't want to be actively paying for a vehicle and also have repair totals added.
Loved it so much I bought another one!
2009 Mitsubishi EclipseKarlee G - Orlando, FL10/02/2016
I bought a 2004 Eclipse in 2009 and traded it in 2013 for a 2009 Eclipse. I absolutely love those little cars. My '09 Eclipse was dream! All I did was regular maintenance on the vehicle and I never had any issues. It was fun to drive and had a lot 'get up and go' power. People were surprised to learn that it was 4 cylinder not a 6. I traded it in for a Mustang, but sometimes I miss it (nothing against my Mustang). They are great little cars. I wish Mitsubishi still made them.
While the last Mitsubishi Eclipse rolled off of the production line several years ago, you can still find this sleek and iconic little sports coupe in the market today. Americans enjoyed a 20-plus year love affair with this fun Japanese car and its powerful engines, sleek styling, and affordability.
