2006 Eclipse — i would not recommend this car unless they come up with a turbo and cut those extra pounds. ie. trunk door weighs like a elephant.

Amazing! Loved It — I loved the style and speed of the car. Sound system is fantastic. It goes where I need it to go and does it fast! It was so fun to drive! It was a little small for my family so we are getting something bigger.

POWERFULL

Cons

weak factory clutch

The Mistubishi Eclipse Gt 2006 — 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse Gt had a very powerfull engine with a butt load of torge when you hit the gas it goes, had great cornering abilitys roomy and a great note when put aftermarket exhoust on... one major problem with this car is it had a very weak clutch from factory, recommend replacing with aftermarket clutch and flywheel and make sure the machanic installs correctly

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

Beautiful Car And Perfect Color — Great looking car. Just whatever you do, don't get into a wreck with it. It had some decent get-up-and-go to it. Pretty fun car to cruise around in, until you total it. Still had a ton of fun in it though.

Amazing Car — This is an amazing car to own, I absolutely love driving it. It is a nice mix between sport and sophistication. Maintenance is minimal, and the comfort level is amazing. I would certainly recommend this car to anyone that needs a safe reliable vehicle.

Best Car I've Driven Yet. — I love how the car drives. It's fast, fun, and good on curves. I've own a 2006 Eclipse GT ever since I was 17 and I have driven it for 5 years now and it still runs great. I've had some aftermarket stuff installed in it and now it drives even better/faster than before. I took this car for a road trip from Minnesota to California and back and the car did not disappoint one bit. It ran great through the mountains, snow, and desert. I love it. The only thing that is bad about this car is that it's not very spacious. So, if you're looking for a family car then this is definitely not for you or if you have a child then don't bother getting a car like this till your child is 18. lol

My Cute Little Racer Rocket :) — Overall a great little car. It was in the mid-range of non-expensive to expensive. I haven't had too many car problems with it other then a bad timing belt, twice! It is great on gas. Has horrible room in the backseat though, wish I would have rode in the back before I bought it! Great for a single person with no kids, and/or whom doesn't do lots of road trips with friends etc.

Great Car All Around. Great Looks And Great Performance. — Love to drive this car. Very reliable. Never had any problems with it. Looks great and performs really nice (handling and power). I've seen people break their necks to get a look at the car drive by, especially when it is super clean!
