    Great Car If You Want To Turn Heads — Its a blast to drive...I wish the build was better (more feeling to the ground) but Ive modified mine ...(cold air intake exhaust headers etc..) but other than that its a great car. Great starter car for those who want a kick but don't want to break the bank. Overall I'd recommend this car to anyone who wants to have fun driving and turn heads in the process.

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

    Pros: Fun and speed

    Cons: its not rust proofed fully

    Great Car, Worth The Price. — Love the power of the engine and the first 3 gears are quick, dont like the engine design. Love the body style except the front bumper, it could be more aggressive. Just to drive and own its an expensive car but its made up for how fun it is to drive.

    Pros: Amazingly smooth and fun, plenty of hp.

    Cons: Speeding tickets and rednecks call it a ricer, but its a V6.

    2001 Eclipse Gt — its a great car, a blast to drive but to me it needs alittle more power cuz just at 200 horsepower most mid size sedans have that type of power. mitsubishi should of built a turbo package for this car. But overall its a really great car handles great and the looks well ill let them speak for themself.

    Pros: fun to drive, very reliable, cheap

    Cons: horsepower, heavy

    Pros: fun to drive, has a sporty feeling

    Cons: average quality, rattles at high speeds

    2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse — The 3rd generation Eclipse is a great line of cars. Getting into one is like sitting in the cockpit of a fighter jet. All the controls and setting just surround you while to simply enjoy the ride to heaven and back. These cars are just so addicting, I love them so much that I want to go get another one.

    Pros: Great looks and solid engine

    Cons: Big blind spot and a tad large

    I Would Recommend This Car To Somebody As Long As The Previous Owner(s) Took Care Of It. — I really like eclipses. I like the way the body of the car is designed, how low it sits, the little grooves it has on the sides of the doors, etc. I really like the fact that it's a car that you can do a lot of work to on the body for a car kit, give it better exhaust, tail lamps, theres just so many things you can do to it to make it look slick. It's quite peppy when it needs to be, but my transmissio went out on it with 87,000 miles and cost me a whopping $2200.00 to fix! You do gotta watch how you drive them, because the transmissions on them do wear down quickly. Overall I think they are great cars, they even seem to handle well in quite a bit of snow!

    Pros: quick car, sporty slick look, easy to clean and make look good

    Cons: transmission failure, kind of loud since it's a hatchback (but i like loud), takes premium unleaded gas, but you can put regular in it, just hope you don't get any engine knocking, and not very much back seat passenger room.

    I Love My Car! — I love the exterior, very sporty and reminds me of a shark. I love having the antenna in my widow. I love having the automatic stick. Pickup isn't the greatest. My sunroof is off the track & it would cost $500 to fix... but it still works. Gas mileage is amazing. I get 375 to 400 miles per tank (16 gal). Backseat is pretty small as far as head and foot room goes. I bought it used.

    Pros: Fast, Sleek, Relatively Cheap, Great Gas Mileage...

    Cons: Safety Rating Sucks

    2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse — car has been very dependable. Is a blast to drive. Low end torque is not that great but once it hits around 60 it starts to hit its stride. It looks wonderful and gets great gas mileage. Parts are cheap and total cost of ownership is very acceptable. Would recommend this car to anyone.

    Pros: Very dependable. Easy to work on. Nice looking. Good MPG.

    Cons: slow off the line

    Ryan's '01 Eclipse — Third gen eclipse is solid, well built, and has more than enough power stock to get you running off the line. Aftermarket support is pretty good, still a few pieces lacking, needs definite attention to detail. Most parts need to be fabricated, and the steering is a little loose. The sporttronic transmission is a breeze, and it's just a fun ride. Not a hardcore following, but then, being original is the key.

    Pros: Build Quality, Suspension, Body Styling

    Cons: Steering, Interior, Lack of Power
