I love my Mitsubhi Eclispe. I recieve so many compliments and head turns in this stylish coupe. This is the first time I have actually gotten a car that I really wanted and liked alot. I'm very grateful and thankful :)
I purchased the GTS V6, 5-speed with Infinity surround sound and 6-disc in-dash CD changer with a leather interior and sunroof about four months ago and have been extremely happy with my purchase.
I had test driven other cars and compared similar vehicles from other manufacturers and this one was by far teh best value for money. It has pick up, control and is very economical on gas. I was especially surprised with how good the transmission felt. I have driven other stick shifts before and this car is easily the most fun to drive (the other household car is a Subaru WRX, which is great for off road but is a bit finicky about how you shift, resulting in a bit more concentration at the end of a hard day and while stuck in traffic).
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.
