Excellent — I couldn't ask for anything better for the cost of the vehicle, little maintenance, decent power, great handling, awesome to drive, stock everything w/ a little self-adjusting and got 146 MPH out of it with 97,000 miles on the car

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

It's A Fun Car To Drive, Gets Good Gas Mileage, And Decent Performance! — For the price and class of sport compact car it is in, it is a good deal. The car was quicker than most cars in its class, fun to drive and tops out at 152 mph. The looks of the car are very sleek. It also got pretty good gas mileage for a V6.

Eclipse — Very fun car to drive is somewhat underpowered due to its hefty curb weight but with a sporty supension it makes up for it one those windy back roads. has a few issuse like large turn around and rear spolier that cuts cars in hlaf in the rear veiw mirrior

Pros

Lots of rubber burning torque for a FWD car

Cons

Super heavy (4000lbs)

85

Mitsubishi Eclipse Gt — Handles decent, makes good power, but extremely heavy for its size coming in just shy of 4k lbs. Also brake fade shows after only a few hard turns, though it does have 2 piston calipers in front. All is easily fixed with minimal mods which I'v nearly completed with my GT.

Cons

It's not an AMERICAN MUSCLE!!!

This Is A Great Car For Mileage And A Smooth Ride! — I love this car! The interior has kept up VERY well! The exterior is in great shape as well and I've had it for four years! Handles great on the road hangs tight to the curves! It may be only a 4cyl. but it acts like it's a v6! I think everyone should have one!

Pros

It's a Car!

Cons

It's my car!!

It's A Car That Works! — The car is heavy so I wouldn't recommend the 4 cylinder models unless you’re getting the convertible of course! The suspension is awful without aftermarket upgrades. Otherwise, I can’t really complain about the motor because it has taken a significant amount of abuse and is still going 120,000 miles later. Not my car of choice however.
