Maintain Then Enjoy —

This car is amazing. I bought it with all maintenance done (breaks, tires, oil, new head gasket, transmission fluids, everything). I heard from the previous owner that this car had one thing after another going bad with it stock, which is a complaint I have heard before about this car. Once you get the maintenance done you can go ahead and enjoy it without any worries. The power is just enough, mileage is great considering the V6 engine and premium fuel is a necessity. Don't even get me started on the drop top, it's a beauty. I will put the top down as much as I can because it's just that fun, and it's so easy to put down (the car has power everything). The car is also comfortable. Handling is great, I'm 5'11 and fit like a glove and the seats are just overall comfortable. I use this car as my daily driver because it is just that versatile. If you are looking for a fun, economical drop top sporty car, the '02 Eclipse Spyder is the way to go. Like I said, though, make sure either the car has been well maintained or you have the money to put out just in case for repairs, replacements, whatever. Overall, the car is worth every penny spent.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very powerful in comparison with gas mileage, daily driver capability

Cons: Maintenance costs

Amazing! — I really enjoyed the time I had with this car it truly is a one of a kind unique luxury fully equiped tuner with all the power in all the right places. Engine sounds beautiful and the looks are out of this world.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its fast it looks great, it impresses the ladies, and its unique. Oh and it has a V6! Also its the same model as the car in 2 fast 2 furious.

Cons: It gets cold faster because its a convertable.

It Is What It Is — The spyder is a versatile car. It's great for getting around town and highway travel as well. In the Spring, Summer, and Fall the convertible is amazing. There's nothing like a relaxing drive in the country with nothing between you and the sky. This car has it all; Good MPG, performance and great looks. It's red and ready to turn some heads.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Versatillity

Cons: None

Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder 2002 Gt Convertible — Performance: acceleration is terrific! Have to be easy on the breaks; replace often. Handling is good, except in the rain. Build Quality: No repairs yet. Bought it with a dent and haven't fixed yet. Appearance: Absolutely gorgeous! The cloth seating is kind of hard to keep up. Mine has faded. Cost of Ownership: Not too bad on gas for what it is. I've only had to pay for a battery so far. Dealership gave me free oil changes for a certain amount of time. Fun factor: LOVE IT.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Acceleration and looks

Cons: Low Profile Tires

Eclipse — I love this car! Theres nothing i dont like about this car. With it's V6, it has an amazing punch. One downside is that it only uses premium gas, however it gets great gas mileage if you drive sane. In general, it is a great car.

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

Pros: Sexy black convertable, whats not to love?

Cons: premium gas only
