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.)

Good Looking Fuel Saver — Love to cruise around in this car fun to drive because its a 5 speed gonna turbo it one day and build it but for now ill just drive it to save me some fuel instead of my big duramax.

Nice Starter Car — it is a good beginner car real good at hugging the road. now this car is not a racecar 140 hp lol but there is tons of aftermarket parts available that could give you the power it lacks. if you want something good on gas and looks nice i suggest this car. if you want something fast i would get the gsx or gst models. you get the same look with a raised hoop spoiler and a turbocharger, and with the eclipse gsx you get awd instead of front wheel drive.

Very Fun To Drive And Fast! — Awesome car, very fast and fun to drive. When you drive it economically it sips gas, but when you put the hammer down it really really goes. It handles well and even gets around good in the snow seeing how it has all wheel drive, which also helps with take offs. A real head turner.
