Pros

Great fun little sports car. Sound is awesome and just a great car overall.

Cons

Does not handle very well in snow.

25

Pretty Darn Good! — I like the style of the car and I like the sound. I dislike how it handles in poor weather conditions. Also I dislike how little room there is if you have any company and you cannot haul around really anything.

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

Pros

Style and performance

Cons

Practically no back seats

35

08 Eclipse — Great car, I have wanted one since they came out in 06'. It looks and sounds amazing, im hoping to push the power to about 200+hp before i get into any cosmetic work. The back seats are non-existent so if you weigh like 90 pounds and are about 4 feet tall, then theres plenty of room. Then again I didnt buy it to drive people around.

2008 Eclipse Gt (sportronic) — One thing that I heard about this car is that it's too heavy. It is quite heavy for it's size but I do like the added weight when I drive it. It has a solid feel when you drive it at higher speeds and seems to drive better the faster you go. The interior fits me pretty well and like the way the seats hug me. Things I like about the car. * power - it has decent power even with it's fairly heavy total weight * form - has a nice look to it * quality - haven't had any major problems with the car Things I don't like about the car. * the gap on the wheel well. It could stand a drop of about 2 inches. * The trunk is very small esp. with the RF sub in there. * doesn't hold it's value as well Would I recommend this car? Yes, but don't buy it brand new from a lot like I did. Look for a year older and you'll get a great deal on a nice car.
