Sick! — I love this car, it's the newest and fastest car i've ever owned! THe car was purcased 6mos ago with crank walk from there it just went up hill from there! The car honestly rips for being a 4cyl. it still needs the simple things fixed but that will come with time!

Performance, low maintenance, good on gas

Oil leaks, some have tranny problems, and interior clips are crappy...

Good Price, Good Performance, And Fantastic Looks For This Body Style. — Overall, good vehicle...easy to mod, good gas mileage/performance. It does tend to leak a little oil here n there, but has been really reliable and never left me stranded. Good cheap, very very fast car with fantastic specs and cheap to maintain.

Fast — Great car if you are a grease monkey and like the feeling of walking all over ricers. Has great acceleration and power. Can break any speed limit in 3rd. Have to have good knowledge about the mechanical workings of this car in order to keep it running to it's full potental.

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.

Pros

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.

handling, accel,

Cons

breaking

35

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

Cons

semi prone to needing repairs

35

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!
