    1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse Gs — Bought a 1999 in 2007, with 86K miles on it, so the engine feels slightly old in terms of acceleration. Acceleration drop is clearly noticeable when I load the cargo bay and trunk with luggage. When light, it handles great, especially when taking turns at higher speeds. Interior styling looks great, in spite of being fabric. Mine has a black exterior with the design of the 2g eclipse and it looks absolutely gorgeous when it's out of a car wash. After a few snow storms, not so much. My 5-speed (manual) gives me about 22 mpg city and about 31 mpg highway - awesome! Beware of maintenance costs though. Body shops tell me these kind of cars get damaged from the front and parts are quite expensive. I guess you sign up for it when you get a sports coupe! I would definitely recommend this car to a driving enthusiast. For racers, the GS is the non-turbo trim with about 120hp, so I would suggest the GS-T or the AWD GSX. If not, there's also a lot of information on how to turbo-charge the GS, but it looks like your pockets have to run deep and you will have a lot of reading to do for a DIY.

    Pros: Handling, styling, acceleration

    Cons: Maintenance, parts costly, not so comfortable (back seats)

    V8 Killer — The car looks great and has alot of power. The awd is awsome, but the drivetrain is weak and breaks whenever you start making real power.

    Cons: Tranny is weak and breaks easily when you start making real power.

    Small Size, Big Impression — Since i saw the movie The Fast and the Furious, ive been wanting a car like the Mitsubishi Eclipse particularly a 2ng generation like the one in the movie. When i first got the car i was real excited. For a four cylinder with no mods it was a good engine. The interior had many options as well. I bought this used from a lot but this i assumed was the sports package GS because it came with pretty much everything from leather seats to a 10 disk cd changer when they used to be in the trunk. Overall for the short time i had it i absolutely was thrilled just to drive it around the corner. My only complaint is that it wasn't the GSX with all wheel drive and a better engine

    Pros: Aggressive exterior, low suspension comfy interior

    Cons: Only a five year old or small dog could fit in the back, engine could of been a little better, cheap plastics in the interior

    140k Miles...still Running Strong — Great car, would recomend to anyone. Strong engine, not the fastest or quickest car in the world, but it will out run a pinto.

    Pros: Gas mileage is great, not made out of cheap materials

    Cons: small interrior, window trim illogical, parking brake in weird position.

    Good Project Car For Future Jdm Tuners — This car, has been my dream car for years. I, personally, love it. Very easy to learn all of it's little quirks, and easily to manuver through turns ( especially if you're a lil heavy footed like me and end up powersliding through the broader turns, lol). For only having 140 HP, it has a good bit of pep in it's step. If the base model performs this well, i can't wait to find out how magnificent the GSX AWD package handles.

    Pros: as long as yer easy on the pedal, gas milage is good. good beginner car.

    Cons: it's FWD, pulley's need tightening after every 2k miles. Very small cab.
