For many reasons but mostly because it's a convertible!!!
It's also fun. It doesn't take all my money to fill it up and I don't visit the pump often, It looks and feels sporty like yet smooth. I'm its 2nd owner, no wrecks, well maintained.
It's a great car!!!
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.
The most comfortable car I ever drove
2007 Mitsubishi EclipseKathe - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida04/22/2011
I'm here to tell you that I have owned Corvetts, Porches, and Camaros and none have been more comfortable and more fun to drive than the Mitsubishi Eclipse. The leather seats are incredible. They literally hug the body and you want to drive forever. This is one car that I would recommend to young and old alike. For the older person you feel like a teenager again. It's fantastic. I especially like it when I open the windows and sunroof and just let it rip down the highway. Do yourself a favor and just test drive one of these babies and you'll be hooked forever.
An extremely satisfied Eclipse owner.
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.
