Eye Catching And Fun To Drive — I really like the looks of this car and how well it handles. The sport package interior is a really nice touch. I don't see many of these cars with that. Having to put 91 octane gas in isn't too great because of the cost but it isn't too bad.

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.

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

Very Nice And Clean — I loved everything about this car. It is very comfortable. The acceleration is outstanding. The brakes are good. This car is definitely fun to drive. I felt very safe and in control while driving it. This is a really good first car.

Great speed, looks and cost effective on fuel!

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!

Excellent — This is good car if you want something for regular commuting,and some minor racing.Has good acceleration and if you know how to power shift you will have no problems getting passed others on the road.The sound is awesome and has no problem staying inside the car and won't irritate other drivers.

Mediocre gas mileage, smooth ride, and a monster under the hood wanting to break tires loose... Awesome car

Cons

This is not a car to haul your friends around in, the back seat is comparable to that of the old fox body mustang

Eclipse: Economic Fun — Awesome acceleration, and a fair amount of power. The only thing I have ever had to do to this car is replace an O2 sensor... well other than routine maintenance ie, oil change and tire replacement. In my opinion it is a fun car to drive.

06 Eclipse Gt — Awesome car!! just a bit rough on the aftermarket world, and it is a bit heavy, but it is a costly car due to the gas of premium. But awesome car to drive, really really fun. Wouldn't trade in for anything different.
