    A Good Car For A High School Or College Student — For a small V6, this car has a descent amount of stock torque off of the line. However, the acceleration drags a bit when entering higher RPMs. The suspension isn't very hard thus allowing a fair amount of drive train slippage. Despite this, the car is reliable and is reasonable to repair.

    Pros: The stereo and the interior is very nice. Handling in dry conditions is very good

    Cons: The tailgate is so heavy that it has trouble staying up. Because of the 24 valve V6 that is in the car, it requires Premium gas, which can get kinda costly. This car is awful when it comes to handling in the snow.

    Poor Quality — Typically for Mitsubishi - the quality is not the best. And out of 2.5 engine, only 150 hp, are you kidding me?! The exterior is OK. The interior is not!

    Pros: Huh?

    Cons: Interior, Quality

    Very Easy To Drive, Great Handling, But Back Seat Is Not Comfortable. — The car is overall easy to drive. It's got great handling. The rear window is angled weird, so it's hard to see out of it. Reversing is difficult and you have to use your mirrors more than usual. The seats are more comfortable than earlier models, but the backseat is still a pain.

    Pros: Handling, Looks, Speed

    Cons: Reversing, Comfort

    You Get What You Pay For — I got it stock and i still love it. It needs some mods, but still a great car.

    Pros: Manuel transmissions are fun! Great Gas mileage when you aren't racing.

    Cons: Needs a turbo...

    You Get What You Pay For. — I drove my friends Eclipse some time ago, I didn't like the small gear box, or at least I wasn't used to it. Good acceleration and nice interiors. Very nice design.

    Pros: Looks good, sporty if you want it to.

    Cons: New model came out, looks like crap.

    Its A Mitsubishi — The Car was quick after some modifications, but it broke down all the time. The transmission went out after about 60,000 miles. The serpentine belt and pulleys kept flying off.

    Pros: Quick and Good on Gas

    Cons: Broke Down A Lot

    I Love This Car, Power's Great, So Is The Handeling — Yeah, it's the stock model, it needs a little TLC and possibly a new paint job, but it's still a great sports car, topping out at 150-160 mph on the speedometer

    Pros: Great Engine

    Cons: Wide turning Radius
