    Eclipsed By A Mitsubishi — The Eclipse is essentially a 2 door Galant. A sedan size and performance coupled with a sporty look makes for a great daily driver. The vehicle has undoubtedly been super reliable as I go into the 7th year of ownership with only one defect problem with the A/C compressor locking up shortly after I took delivery of it. Very comfortable and gains a lot of attention.

    Pros: Looks great, spacious and comfortable

    Cons: Slow and pistons are like peanut butter when adding big power.

    It's A Car That Works! — The car is heavy so I wouldn't recommend the 4 cylinder models unless you’re getting the convertible of course! The suspension is awful without aftermarket upgrades. Otherwise, I can’t really complain about the motor because it has taken a significant amount of abuse and is still going 120,000 miles later. Not my car of choice however.

    Pros: It's a Car!

    Cons: It's my car!!

    This Is A Great Car For Mileage And A Smooth Ride! — I love this car! The interior has kept up VERY well! The exterior is in great shape as well and I've had it for four years! Handles great on the road hangs tight to the curves! It may be only a 4cyl. but it acts like it's a v6! I think everyone should have one!

    Pros: The best Japanese car around!!!!

    Cons: It's not an AMERICAN MUSCLE!!!

    I Love This Car. — I like everything about this car and have been driving it for fourteen years. I bought this car new in 2001. The body could use some refreshening. I also like the shifter that you can use as an automatic or manually shift it for more rpm...zoom! It is a petite girls car to drive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handles great and I also love the sunroof and stereo system.  

    Cons: Back seat is too small for passengers.

    One Of The Best Looking Sports Coupes You Can Buy For An Inexpensive Pricetag. — 5 speed. 3.0L V6. 210 HP. 215 ft/lbs. Great Handling because of stiff suspension, but could be stiffer. At 100,000 miles, everything decided to break, but it was all cheap. Great looking car from almost any angle. This car is a blast to drive fast, especially on a curvy road.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Coupe. Very good looking. Decently Powerful in a straight line, but really quick around corners.

    Cons: Coupe.  Gas mileage is just O.K.
