I bought this car about 9 months ago and I have been very impressed with it. The car is turbo all wheel drive and drives like it's pretty new. I would say that getting a car like this with the miles i got (118,000) you're going to expect to put around $1000 dollars worth of maintenance and general repairs, which is not untypical for cars nowadays (120,000 mile timing belt, maybe clutch, etc.). However with that maintenance alone the car drives way better than my old 1996 Eclipse RS, and has less problems thus far. Don't expect much room in the back. This car is a great alternative to the Eclipse costing 1000s less than its counterpart; its a great performance vehicle!
I'd say my 5 favorite features of this car are: 1. The turbocharged motor 2. All wheel drive 3. Folding rear seats 4. Sleek body design 5. Fully loaded interior.
If they brought this car back, I think they should get rid of the spoiler (I know I already did). Also, a larger turbo would be nice; the one that comes on it is the size of a hairdryer. Lastly I would seroiusly rethink that hump in the middle of the backseat and add beefier drivetrain components.
This is a great car if your into cars!
It is reliable and fun to drive...but
even better any performance improvments
are really felt...I would recomend this
car to anyone who is into the import
The exterior is very sleek and the car
My experience with this vehicle is a
good one. Its sweet looking and the
chicks dig it. The 2 liter engine is
pretty much the only down fall,
although, I'm not into street racing so
I couldn't care less. Thanks for
My favorite feature is probably the
exterior visual. Its Rad looking.
A suggested improvement would have to
be that people can't really sit in the
back seat cuz thier head will hit the
roof, unless they are 5'4" tall
i bought this car after looking at many
an eclipse, and i couldnt be happier.
the car is absolutly solid & perfect.
the motor is imaculate the interior
still smells brand new, nothing is
faded or cracked. the build
quality, and overall fun factor
involved in driving a 2GNT is
overwhelming. these cars ride on
rails yet are smooth as silk. lighter
than the turbo with many aftermakret
kits for adding boost. a great car that
i would recommend to anyone, from
grandma to your younger brother or
sister whos learning how to drive.
