Fun, Yet Reliable — For the price you can have a sporty car. Handles extremely well, brakes tend to need replacing frequently, though that might be because of my own driving style. Never had any problems with things breaking. Built very well. Steering wheel kind of shakes when under heavy breaking.

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

Pros: Sporty, comfy, well equipped.

Cons: Sits kind of low

Embodiment Of A Sexy Sports Car — This car is exactly what a true sports car should be- it's fast, comfortable, small, and has a smooth transmission that is always energizing to handle. The back seats are really only good for bags or luggage, not at all suited to transporting anyone. A family car it's not, but that's clearly not the point of a sports car to begin with. Garage kept by its first owner for almost 8 years, this car is in mint condition. Only real complaint with the appearance of the Eclipse is the spoiler, which is perfectly position to obscure about 20% of the view from the rear-view mirror.

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

Pros: An incredible sports coupe that gets 27mpg. Intuitive handling, ridiculously comfortable ride, and in mint condition. Trunk has installed support bar to lend firmness to the frame in sharp handling.

Cons: Negligible room for the back seats.
