This is a great car. Too bad the 6-cylinder didn't come in a stick, but the 2.0 liter DOHC 4 cylender is fun too. I heard some bad things about them, but I have loved mine and never had any major problems. You can mod the engine with Eclipse parts since Mitsubishi makes them both.
The look of the car, and the handling. It's quite spacious for the backseat passengers
More power. It looks fast, but doesn't live up to it unless you're going for top speed. Engine mods are a must.
