The Eclipse GT is the product of Mitsubishi's 'World Class" spirit of making cars. This spirit lives in the Eclipse. The car is embodiment of "fun"! It's built solid, looks great and drives like a sports car should. A random motorist, my pharmacist and a stranger at a local restaurant have all gone out of their way to tell me how 'NICE' a car I have. Three compliments in just a month! They're right too, it is a fantastic vehicle! I'm a fan!
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 have really enjoyed driving this car. It rides great, gets good gas mileage and is comfortable. There isn't a lot of room in the back seat, but generally, it is only my 45 pound dog back there, so it is plenty of room for us.
