It is a very fun car to drive. It has plenty of power for back road goofing off and has sporty lines that look great. With the top down, the air flows over the cabin perfectly. When you drive, you can tell the designers put a lot of time into the airflow design. I really only drive it on the weekends for fun through the Summer when the weather is nice. I have taken one road trip with it and had an absolute blast driving the whole trip. My Grandmother even enjoyed cruising around in it.
It's very nice car, sporty feel to it, handles great and for a 4 banger it has very get up as go, great gas mileage, the Rockford Fosgate system is the best, no complains , I wish it was rear wheel drive or all wheel drive , but great car
I have now had my 2007 GT for over a year, I feel like I know this car inside and out.
Compares to Mustang GT, Nissan 350z, Subaru WRX, VW GTI, (most of these vehicle can cost quite a bit more too)
Fun to drive
Good Handling on curvy roads
Rockford Fosgate stereo is the best stock stereo I've ever heard.
Most bang for the buck your gonna find.
Nice trunk Space
FWD (because of this, torque steer is a noticeable issue.)
Turning Radius of a pickup truck
Visibility (you get used to this quick tho)
Cheap Leather interior
No room in the back seats, (not that it matters, you wont be sitting back there anyways :P )
If you are the type that modifies I recommend a CAI, it provides a noticeable boost in performance and efficiency. Overall this car gets a thumbs up from me.
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.
