    My Gt — My first ever new car.Handles great ,drives nice and stops on a dime.Have had this car from day 1 and have not had any maintenance issues at all. It is starting to show it,s age a little with a little wind noise on the drivers door and a few interior squeaks nothing major that can't easily be fixed.Fuel milage depends on how I drive it really. One week of going to and from work stop and go and it gets in the upper 20's straight interstate driving on vacation the lower 30's. Overall it's a fun car to drive definitly gives ou a very sporty feel.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: i'm the only owner so I know how it's been driven

    Cons: don't like the styling on my factory wheels but that's fixable

    A To B Car... Doesn't Play Nicely. — It is the worst Eclipse generation ever. Especially the GS. Drum brakes in the rear? Really? Disc technology is that hard to come by? RPM gap between 1st and 2nd gear is 2500? Those Synchros hate me. Mitsubishi lost so much money on this car on warranty work that they tried to screw me outta mine.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: If you enjoy seeing dudes trying to check you out until they realize you are a man.

    Cons: Avoid the Manual Transmission Model

    3g Eclipse — I never realized how much I liked it until it was gone. I would've preferred the GT with a v6 instead of the 4 cylinder but it was still a pretty fun car to drive. It was a 5 speed manual also which made it all the more fun. I never ran into any problems with it. The car looked beautiful too.

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

    Pros: Looks good and its pretty fun to drive

    Cons: it was a GS

    2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse — I have really put a lot of effort into my car. Needs some work now but overall I love it. Custom painted interior, double den indash touch-screen dvd player, new speakers and subwoofers. And now I just need to put in the new stage 2 clutch

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

    Pros: Its quick and I like the body styling

    Cons: Wish it was turbo

    Not Bad, But Not A Race Car. — I really like the car, it turns heads for sure. It's not the fastest car on the block and the 6 cylinders are harder to boost. If you want a straight-line car that can get under 14s without putting out much cash, stick with a Mustang or other rear-wheel drive car. If you're looking for something to take some corners, shell out the grand or two and you'll be set.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Looks good, turns some heads, great online community.

    Cons: Gas milage on the 6 isn't the best.

    Pros: Fast

    Cons: back seat space, but who cares about my passengers!!!
