    2006 Eclipse — i would not recommend this car unless they come up with a turbo and cut those extra pounds. ie. trunk door weighs like a elephant.

    Pros: Nice interior compared to older models

    Cons: no acceleration what so ever and it weighs a ton

    Sweet Ride — Ive had this car for 2.5 yrs now with very little trouble. Having an issue with the sunroof at the moment but the amazing warranty will take care of that one.

    Pros: Fun to drive and turns alot of heads.

    Cons: To heavy for a four banger, Im sure the v6 milage would be close to the same.

    The Fun, The Fast, The Good Looking — The Eclipse is a fantastic looking car that drives well and is a great ride. The seats are comfortable and the interior is great looking espacialy at night. I have driven the Automatic and ended up buying the manual it's much faster.

    Pros: Fantastic Design, Good Acceleration, Easy Shifting

    Cons: 5th gear has next to no acceleration, Rear visablity is bad, rough ride

    Fast And Gorgeous — the car looks good, drives amazing, handles amazing, is fast just being stock but could be faster with a few upgrades but other than all that it is amazing...

    Pros: the whole car speaks for itself, its awesome

    Cons: only bad thing is the sound system that came in it was a joke

    I Love My Car!! — there are no problems with this car whatsoever. one thing i find frustrating though is that the seatbelt, when taken off, hits the plastic piece it rests on when not being used and causes the plastic to get chipped... nothing anyone but me would notice probably but still something that frustrates me... stock brakes are really strong, stops on a dime... i drive it in the snow and it's not as bad as some may think. defroster works very well, car heats up quickly... the exterior trunk release button is a button, like in new corvettes which is cool

    Pros: stock sub hits really hard; car won't lock when on and in park--prevents locking your keys in the car

    Cons: the seatbelt thing; no interior trunk release

    Great Car! — I bought my Eclipse in June of 2007, and did buy used. I have the GT with a sporttronic transmission. I love this new style of Eclipse for many reasons; First, the new body styling it's both cute and mean and flows together nicely, I was glad to see they smoothed the sides of it from the third gen model, bringing back a little of the second gen. The way the rear seats fold down and how the rear panel is easily removed, the car opens up to fit quite a load in (great for college kids!) I've driven it nearly 6k miles since June and it is very comfortable for those long drives, the bucket seats fit well and it has adjustable lumbar support, the only thing i'd like to see with the interior is a telescoping steering wheel. Second; it's now got a 3.8L V6! The power is great, deffinantly not as much as some other cars, and if I could, I would deffinantly go for the 6 speed manual transmission instead of the 5 speed sporttronic, however that's a preference thing, I have driven the manual and it does feel more powerful. I do like the sporttronic, it's automatic when I need it to be and I can have fun and turn it into a clutchless-manual when I want to feel that power. Third; it handles incredibley well. I drove the pontiac G6, Hyundai Tiburon, Honda Civic Coupe, Scion TC, and Chrysler Crossfire while shopping around and the Eclipse handled very nicely. It responded acurately and cornered very well. You just have to get used to the front wheel drive, it's very easy to over-correct.

    Miles Driven per Year:24,000

    Pros: smooth styling, handles well, plenty of power for a psuedo-sport, moderately priced

    Cons: large blind spots due to the hatch-back, nearly no head room for backseat passangers

    I Love My Car But Teacher Are Losing Their Jobs Left And Right This Year It Was My Turn. — Since there is a sound system in the truck you have very little storage, but it didn't bother me. Love a six speed because most people can't drive it and I was never put in the position to let someone borrow my car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: it starts when I turn the key

    Cons: tires cost more than regular cars
