Hot Convertible — I liked how sporty this car looks and it drives the way it looks, fast! I enjoyed the automatic convertible top and the leather seats were a great touch. It had decent gas mileage, pretty good for a sports car with lots of pep. Maintenance was cheap on the car and fairly easy to perform. Overall a lot of fun to drive!

Nice To Rent But For Some It's Great To Own — If you ever decide to buy one, get anything other than silver or gray. The colors silver and gray doesn't really do the car justice. It's easy on the eyes to look at but at the same time you want a color that's gonna make this car POP out at you and say "oh hell ya"!!

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

Good Car But Cost A Lot To Keep Up — Just do your homework before you get this car. It can be your friend or your enemy! Simple parts can be so expensive and there for major parts ares crazy money even when from a pull a part. I love this car but when it starts falling apart its time to get a new one.

2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder Gts (the Green Goblin) — Great car, very sporty, lots of fun with the top down. Plenty of power for such a small car. Top is a one touch operation, very convenient. Interior is very confortable, spacious in the front seat, not much of a back seat. Plenty of trunk space for a sporty convertible.

Can't fit tall people such as me and don't have enough room to fit kids in the back seat

Fun And Stylish — Not much I dislike I have more likes on it I have mine in my garage doing some custom work to it so far it's been easy to do except installing the lambo door hinges on it I ran into a lot of problems with that

Her Ride. — She looked for along time for this car. It is a great fit for her. She loves the looks and gas milage. Wish the top did not leak but all in all its a great car. And when it gets out of the shop I hope to get my truck back from her.

Great First Car — Its ok. First car not bad, I have had fun tuning it out as clean as possible, tuning the engine is impossible and useless unless you force induct it (which is expensive) but overall the looks are slick when clean.

Great fun to drive.  Makes going to work a thrill.

Cons

I do not reccommend this car to anyone who is uptight.  Do not drive if you don't like to smile.

I Will Keep This Car For Many Years To Come And Will Probably Buy Another One. — First off the body styling is absolutely beautiful. I love curves, on the road and on the car. The interior styling is modern and subtle, not eccentric like...other...manufaturers now owned by the government. Solid build, has not needed any serious repairs beyond routine maintenance. Gas mileage is great and improves with intake and exhaust upgrades. The MVIM Intake Management System shows its prowess after 3000 RPMs when it remaps the fuel/air ratio. The exhaust not gets real racy and there is a very noticable spike in acceleration. The lower gears have plenty of torque while the higher gears give plenty of top end speed. The suspension takes curves like a champ. This car is the most fun I have had with my clothes on. This car is and will always be my baby.
