I owned a 2002 Eclispe for 7 years and loved it. It was time for a new car and I wanted a 2009 but they were no where to be found - the Cash for Clunkers program depleted the supply. I wasn't looking for a previously owned car but my 2007 convertible is perfect. I love it.
I bought mine 4 years ago and it still only has 29,000 miles on it. It is the most dependable car I have ever owned. I Previously had a Toyota Celica which I liked but the Eclipse has a wider wheel base, more room and a lot more get up and go. Every once in a while I will floor it and the front end comes up. I get a charge out of that every time! Beautiful car, baby blue and not a scratch on it. I also went to a dealer and they wanted me to sell this car for a new Eclipse. No way! This one is paid for and looks brand new. I don't understand why it doesn't get more publicity. Very happy with this car!
I have had my 2003 Spyder GTS for 6 years, I drove it off the showroom floor in Oct. 2002, It has 72,000 miles on it. All I have ever had to do is buy tires and a battery. It is still black ,sparkling,beautiful. and runs like a dream. It's for sure a heard turner! I get calls all the time from people trying to buy it. Dealers included!
I went to purchase a new car since mine is getting up there in years but everytime I looked out at my Spyder in the lot,and then looked at the new car parked beside it, I said "That's OK ,I will keep mine" the other cars just couldn't hold a candle to it. Yes Including the new spyders,
I guess I will just get a tune up,add XM RADIO, and keep the best car I have ever owned.
If you have a chance to but a 2003 Spyder, My advise is to go for it! You will love it,
it's a soon to be Classic.
