The convertible Spyder eclipse is the best purchase I have ever made, much less work than my college degrees and less up keep than my house. Having the top down on a nice day makes that 9-5 rat race so much more bearable and generally leaves me in a better mood + the v6 engine really gives you that extra boost when ever you need it.
Negatives: The truck space in minimal, the backseat is a joke it might as well be a 2 seater, when the top is up the back window is really small and visibility suffers, especially at night and in poor weather.
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.
I love it!
2011 Mitsubishi EclipseDiego Bello - Atlanta, GA01/11/2017
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.
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.
