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.

Pros: looks interror and exterror

Cons: would have gotten a turbo kit for it the 4 cylenders blow

Built For Look Instead Of Speed — Interior & Exterior: nice curve, the whole car looks kinda chuppy :p but it's cute! Outstanding Brake system. Acceleration: cuz of the weight of the car, even with 210 of base hp, still kinda slow. Overall : I like my car :D try to make it cuter now hehe

Pros: ...

Cons: ...
