    Good Daily Driver — Its a drivers car not much room for other people. Fun to drive every day. You can tell the care was built around the driver. Eats more gas then cars with same engin size but not too bad. The car is kinda long for my taste.I put a body kit on mine...not a good idea.

    Pros: fun car

    Cons: not of racing

    Great Car — Fun little car. Has only needed repairs because of age. I just wish it was a faster car so i might be able to keep up with my friends. Id recommend it to a friend as a first car definitely. I want to upgrade it a little bit to make it more fun!

    Pros: Good looking, good handling

    Cons: not as fast as id like

    Original Title 2nd Owner — It has gone 147 six times and is very quick until 130. Parts are way tooo expensive and doesnt have alot of aftermarket parts. Steering wheel controls are nice. 17 inch factory rims. Metallic silver paint is one of the best colors.. my preference i guess. Custom exaust sounds nice. Factory infinity 210 watt system w/ aftermarket alpine type R 12" sub and Kicker 360 watt amp. Not much room for more than 2 people. Factory spoiler and moonroof. 3.0 24 valve v6 w k&n air filter. 25 plus miles per gallon. Lumbar driver seat. Foldin rear seats. After owning this car for 3& a half years i would rather have something else.

    Pros: Great speed and appearance

    Cons: Too small

    Fun And Reliable Compact Sports Car. — Awesome car and totally reliable. Never had any problems. Was a four banger but preformed and kept up with the six cylinders. A cheaper car to own too, was fuel efficient and very fun to drive. Was very flashy and caught everyones eye. I would deffinately buy the car again if the oppertunity arose.

    Pros: Acceleration, looks, reliability, almost everything.

    Cons: none

    Great Car — Far from the fastest car on the street, mine is much more of a show car. It is a quick car though it is somewhat heavy, but with a slight amount of suspension work it handles like a dream. The car has a great look with awesome lines.Also if your looking for a great a gas saver the 2.4L 4 bangger will be your friend.

    Pros: Looks Great, and good gas saver

    Cons: not a racecar

    Good Looking Exterior But Without The V6 Model This Car Is Slow — The 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS is a little peppy car with a manual transmission. Without it, though is a dog. Overall it is a great car very good on gas since its a four cylinder. Its exterior like always on the Eclipse is very well designed and made. It comes with a spoiler and a sunroof. The bucket seats inside are very comfortable. Even though with minor back seats they are comfortable. The hatchback gives plenty of room. All in all this FWD vehicle is fun but is not in the same league as its predecessor.

    Pros: Great interior, exterior look. Unique styling. Sunroof and spoiler come standard.

    Cons: Lack of engine power. No ABS in this model, handling is not the best.

    Solid, Fun-to-drive Car That Works Great As A Daily Driver. — For the life of me, I can't figure out why this car depreciates so quickly. An excellent condition 2003 Eclipse will only run you about $10-$13k. Small wear-and-tear problems will drive that price down quickly. This is a great, fun, and exciting little car. Very good for a first-car, in fact. I have had the car for 3 years now, the car is 6 years old, and the only problems in its entire history are replacing the brake pads (probably my fault...) and a leaky coolant hose, which cost me about 60 dollars to repair. Beyond that, no problems at all with anything. I highly recommend this car in a manual transmission. The 5-speed is easy and smooth, and a great car for first-time manual drivers. I should know, I was one :) First time ever driving a stick was the test drive. Second time was off the lot that same day, I loved it so much. The only downsides to this car is its top-end power and perhaps the interior amenities. Below about 3300 RPM the car is a bit sluggish. Okay, it's VERY sluggish... But if you can keep the revs up in your shifting, the car has enough get-up-and-go for anything you may need (passing, quick acceleration, etc). The interior is very "plastic wasteland" though, somehow (unlike a lot of American inexpensive cars) it does manage to look tasteful, in spite of its cheap materials. Visibility is good in all places except for the rear corners. Just take a quick glance over your shoulder to double check what your mirrors are telling you, and you'll be fine. The WORST problem with the car, however, is the hideous understeer when keeping speed through a corner. Absolutely monstorous...but then again it is a front-wheel drive car, so how much are you gonna ask for it anyway? 99% of the time this is not an issue...I've only spun the car once, and that's because I was deliberately driving crazily at 11 PM on a deserted road :) Yes, I was going way too fast. But enough about me... Great little car, inexpensive, easy to drive (manual), VERY fun to drive, good audio system...go buy one now :)

    Pros: Supercar looks at an inexpensive price
    Easy/fun drive
    Great audio system for the price
    Comfortable seats
    Trunk space

    Cons: Rear-corner visibility
    High-speed handling
    Low-end power
    Room in back seat
    Frameless driver/passenger windows can goof up sometimes
    Depreciation value is steep

    Love The Eclipse — Awesome Performance, breathtaking appearance, good on gas, and LOADS of fun to drive.... Just watch you don't bottom out as the front end is both lower and wider than it feels

    Pros: What's not to like?

    Cons: Very low and wide front bumper; misleading when trying to squeeze into parking spots etc.
