1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder 2 Dr GS-T Turbo ConvertibleReview

A Fun To Drive, True Sports Car —

For a little 2.0 liter 4-cylinder turbo charged engine, this car moves like the wind. It's the front wheel drive model, meaning 1st gear is basically worthless when the turbo spools. Second through fifth, however, will sit you firmly in your seat. The top starts to get pretty loud around the 90 to 100mph range, and even worse up around that 130 to 140mph range, almost to the point where you think the top is just going to leave the car. The actual car is still prett stable for the most part around those speeds. Maybe a little light in the wheel. The braking is also spectacular. The upper model cars have 4 wheel disc brakes instead of 2 disc and 2 drum, and they work. Well. If you arent ready, you'll meet the windshield, face first. The cornering is that of a true sports car. It's very stiff and rigid, which helps with the body roll (or lack thereof). The gearbox is very tight, meaning a person has to pay attention if they want the correct gear. Overall, it's a sharp looking, good running, fun to drive car that still gets mid to upper 20's for mileage (unless of course you drive it like it's meant to be driven).

Pros: Fun to drive, good handling, good mileage.

Cons: NO back seat to speak of, top can get loud.
