Nice Car,good Handling,good Brakes,great Car Overall — The 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse Sports Value Option Package.This was my first car and it was wonderful! It rides well and is very sporty looking. I'd recommend this car to anyone.The car is awesome, it runs beautiful and the roar you get from flooring becomes addicting

Good Fun! — For me the styling of the 97-99 Eclipse works really well. With the turbo engine and manual transmission it goes well. It's not that expensive to run but does require regular attention, which is not a surprise after 15 years. Things to watch out for: - Infinity door speakers seem to stop working - Rust on the front strut domes

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

It was soo easy to add mods to it and make it look even better

Cons

SLOW

Mitsubishi Eclipse — It was to slow for my liking. The interior was a little dated. Other than that I loved the car and I loved adding and changing the look of the car. When I sold it I wish I would have done more engine work to it.

Cons

Tranny is weak and breaks easily when you start making real power.

Wicked Fast — Not built to be a show car. All about performance and power.

My Eclipse Experience. — I am sort of salty about this because there was a GS-T right next to it, with more miles, and more money... at the time, I didn't know why. Oh well. I did a few things to it, for example, I fiberglassed the interior, put a JL Audio sounds system in it, a three gauge pod cluster on the A Piller (glassed of course), projector headlamps, intake, front strut bar, did a few other things to the outside... Pretty slow car, loud and obnoxious... but I liked it at the time!

more care at older age

Mitsubishi Eclipse, 99 — I love my little Mits Eclipse! Its fun to drive! I feel like a part of the car when i'm driving it. The only thing about it is that as they get older they require a massive amount of care to stay together and working. As long as you do that, they will treat you with the same care.

Great Car — This car is very fun to drive, also very reliable never had problems with it in a hard Midwest winter or hot summer...If you want a gas saver with a decent power/reliability/stability and everything else this car is a way to go. I drove it thru half the Country without a problem! I also had a 2003 Eclipse GT 5 spd and i kind of like this generation better when it comes to look and handling. Also if getting these cars make sure you get a manual trans, because automatic is not even close to being fun as 5 speed in these cars, transmission in automatic is not very reliable and also it leaks performance wise...so manual is the way to go in the Eclipses :-))
