Greatest Car In The Whole While World — I love it, its taken quite a beating, I race it all the time everywhere and not a glitch. It wasnt that expensive and I havent had any repairs beyond oil change. It picks up a bunch of girls. Love it

Pros

good on gas

Cons

slow as molasses

25

Not Me — slow, boring, embarassing, annoying, no bolt-on potential unless you wanna stick NOS on it and blow it up for fun. But, its been reliable and its small enough to fit in tight parallel parking spots.... totally whip-able. My little tank.

You should drive it.

Cons

Not a lot of people fit in this car, but sometimes thats a good thing

25

Its A Nice Car, I Like It. — The cars alright. It has a lot of potential and mitsubishi engines are really reliable. The clutch is really nice on this car and I'd recommend throwing a short shifter in it. Its kind of on the small side, you can put two people in the back but not comfortably. The engine bay is set up real simple too, perfect if you're looking to do work to it. I like driving it and the car moves if you want it too. Its actually really good on gas and overall fun to drive.

Modified Eclipse — performance wise this is a pretty good base car. it is lighter than the turbo model so if it is modified for turbo it will have even better accel. then the turbo model. handeling is great have a good solid feel for the road. braking could be a little better ... or maybe i just have bad breaks ... only needed to replace the fuel pump at 110.000 miles

Looks, Performance, Modabilty

semi prone to needing repairs

2g Dsm 1998 — The overall car is very good for ten years old a lot of the engine has been upgraded for mild racing with an all engine build. The quality of the car is good but being a DSM it is prone to needing repairs. Appearance is nice. Overall I love all DSMs and they are a blast to drive.

Eclipse Gs-t — great car to drive and own only normal wear and tear to maintain drinks alot of petrol but what american car doesnt lol. lots of tuning potential as its an evo III engine 4g63t but 7bolt can be prone to crankwalk 95-96 models more then 97-99. amazing car and turns sooo many heads even next to ferrari's only 1 of 9 eclipse's in the u.k!

It's fast and fun to drive.

Cons

It takes a while to warm up.

Eclipse! — It's given me some problems. Like the first night I had it the shift/select cable broke. And I've had to replace a few headlight bulbs. But other than that it's fun to drive, especially since it's stick and it's very sharp looking. I have a carbon fiber hood on it as well as aftermarket headlights, tail-lights and exhaust. It's actually a 1996 but it has a 1998 front end conversion after it got in an accident. Inside I have custom glow gauges and racing seat belts.
