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
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 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.
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.
