The entire process from walking in the door at Carmax and approached my a salesman, showing him the Eclipse they had off the Internet on my iPhone too driving off of the lot was very relaxed and professional. The car itself, I have had it since the 23rd of December, 2011. So far I am very impressed! I have always driven a four door sedan. Infiniti G35x and others of the like. The 2005 G35x was most recent car. I think the Eclipse GS Syder 2007 handles the road better and feels more safe and stable in a curve at moderate speeds. I don't get the feeling that the car weight is shifting causing the car to tip in a curve. I could tell more. However, I'm not. For me being a safe and cautious driver but, when I know there aren't any other cars around so that I'm the only one that could get hurt I have a little fun with it. Just bc I haven't had it long so I want to see how it does. In my opinion it is a great car. For the price, well worth it. It is definitely one of the more inexpensive cars for maintenance and repair. I bought the 150,000 mile warranty. The car only had 40,000 miles as an 2007. I calculated MY average miles a year by the finance term of payoff. Personally I don't want to be actively paying for a vehicle and also have repair totals added.
I absolutely LOVE my Eclipse Spyder! It handles very well, has good pick-up for a 4 cylinder, and looks great! The back seat is very small, but i knew that going into the purchase and am fine with that. I have been driving mommy cars for many, many years so it is great to have a FUN car again. I can't wait for warm weather so I can enjoy the drive with the top down. I would highly recommend this car to anyone looking for a great value in a great little sportscar.
I started looking for something that would give me get-up and go feeling in the seat of the pants in the $15 - $20k price range. I was also trying to have a back seat as we are a family of four. I tried several makes, including the Mustang GT when my Wife pointed me to the Eclipse GT. On my first test drive I came back all smiles. This car felt great and it would move. I was sold. After a little over a month I still LOVE this car. I have made a week trip putting just over 600 miles on it and had no problem setting for a tank of gas. The car averaged about 20mpg.

Looks great inside and out. Gauge and control placement. Cons � Road noise is a little high, Mileage could be better but a Cold Air Intake will give another 2 � 3mpg. Requires premium fuel. High power and front wheel drive = torque steer but OK once used to it.
