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!
For many reasons but mostly because it's a convertible!!!
It's also fun. It doesn't take all my money to fill it up and I don't visit the pump often, It looks and feels sporty like yet smooth. I'm its 2nd owner, no wrecks, well maintained.
It's a great car!!!
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.
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.
