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 Eclipse Spyder has been a reasonably good choice for me. I wanted a front-wheel drive convertible with enough of a back seat for the dog. My 4-cylinder model is zippy enough for my use, and I get lots of positive feedback about it's looks. For negatives, the passenger foot well is small, there's way too much plastic in the interior for the price (and it's started to buckle), it has a few odd creaks and weird noises, and the trunk is miniscule. My suitcase has to go in the back seat. Still, the car is pretty much what I was expecting it to be.
This car is fun to drive, I chipped mine with performance chip and added a cold air ram induction.Sounds pretty good ! The stock radio is junk, replaced with a pioneer double din unit. Turn radius is bad and the torque steer problem continues to be a pain. When you get on the throttle feels like the whole front end gets out of shape. Should have made this car AWD. Needs rear wing to stabilize the ride with some down force. Thinking about going with a super charger and a bigger sway bar to keep the body from twisting so much. Could really use some performance parts in the suspension area as well.
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.
