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.
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.
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
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.
