1997 Eclipse Rs — ok the cra stock as everyone knows is pretty slow for a sports car being a non-turbo but the looks are great. i have built mine to be a 350 whp beast now so the car is a good platform to build on and has great potential. They are fairly cheap to pick up and the aftermarket is pretty big for this vehicle

Pros: cheap great gas mileage, easy to build in any trim, good looks and very dependable

Cons: unless you get a turbo ur not going to be getting anywhere really fast, and windows rattle in place on most of these vehicles

Benro's 97 Eclipse Gs — for an eclipse it has horible acceleration. Those of you that know a lil about cars might know that in the late ninties mitsubishi had bad crank walk problems with the 2.0 engine luckly i have not had that problem yet but i am having problems with the trans. but over all it woul be a great car for a non car person

Pros: it is a stick (5 speed)

Cons: it does not have a turbo so it is slow   tops out around 120 but i would not know that lol

Driving A Suped Up Car —

This car was the most enjoyable car of my life & at the same time, gave me the worst time of my driving life. This amazing look and the sound were very enjoyable to drive, but when it started to break apart.....:*( Eclipe is known for the look & couldn't agree more. I purchased the car as is. The previous owner was my best friend and he bought it from the first owner, which did amazing job on the body. But as it was a local show car, I think he built this on his own and made a lot of mistake on a lot of things. He obviously didn't care about the performance. Only thing he tweaked was vavle to make the car turbo ready. First I thought he had the turbo in and took it out, but as I was driving the car, I realized that wasn't the case. So, when the axle of the car fall off on me due to the lowering the car too much...I almost died...if it happened any other places than a mall parking lot. Overall, performance wise, the car isn't the greatest "supe up car". Appearance wise, as you can see. The car looks beautiful. You will def. grab a lotttt of attentions. Including COPS :( Is it fun to drive? Indeed. Is it worth to own for daily drive purpose? Probably not. If you know some about car, you know eclipse after this model is not that good appearance wise. So, I had the car, had a lot of fun, but Never would want it back :D Thanks for reading! -Eric Lee

Pros: Appearance. I still couldn't find anything look hotter than this car.

Cons: Everything else except appearance! :*(

1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse — Well, it's a manual, sparkly purple, and the driver door has some bad welding on it :( I love it though, because it's fast, and it has badass handling. It's a trip to drive.

Pros: Awesome to drive, great handling

Cons: Not reliable in the winter time

1997 Eclipse Gs — This was my first car. It needed some serious help but I gave it love and it usually returned the favor. Had to get the timing belt and head gasket replaced once but that wasn't too bad. The sunroof came off track once, also not too bad. Excluding forced induction, I stretched the engine about as far as it was going to go. Cold air intake, stainless headers and downpipe, magnaflow catback. seems like there was more to the engine now that I look back but maybe not. anyway, hurst short shifter, brembo slotted/cross-drilled rotors, ceramic pads, dc sport front strut tower bar, obx rear strut tower bar and lower tie bar. didn't do audio or wheels which i kind of regret but i sold it to buy the spyder so i'm happy. car was a blast.

Pros: Gratuitous amounts of fun.  

Cons: I had to sell it.
