1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS-T Turbo 2dr Convertible


Review

There is nothing like pulling up to a
mustang at a stoplight reving your
motor up and smiling as you burnout
and leave that V-8 in the dust. Don't
let anyone tell you that turbo 4
cylinders are not fast.


Best Features

The turbo, leather seats, cnvertable glass back window with electric defrost,and the power.


Worst Features

Just go to your local tuner shop and tune away!

Review

I love my spyder. It is probably one
of the most underrated cars. The
engine is screaming to be upgraded and
when you do hang on to your hat. I've
left many 50k performance cars
wondering what just beat them. Get
one, learn about it and then mod it...


Best Features

Engine!!!!


Worst Features

Should have been a two seater. The back seat is useless.

Review

Fun little car. Bought a 5-speed blue
Spyder. Handles great at all speeds,
nice ride, peppy engine. Good gas
mileage. I owned a BMW 325iC
convertible before this, and this car
is quieter than my BMW convertible was.
Decent seats, and overall interior is
pretty good.


Best Features

Power top, peppy engine, looks great!


Worst Features

Brighter headlights, bigger trunk, better Infinity system; these aren't bad on the car, but they could be slightly better.

Review

The car is the worst I have ever
purchased in my life. From its
mechanical failures to its plastic body
feeling, it has totally failed me. I
bought the car for my daughter and the
car has not gone 2 mths without
something going wrong. Just be careful
when you purchase a vehicle like this.
The oil pan leaks, which burnt the
heads and now the transmission is
slipping. Need I say more. I will.
The interior is falling apart. The
plastic inside is crap. thats it, i am
out.


Best Features

the top comes off. woopee


Worst Features

everything. should have bought a celica

Review

the turbo whine is enough of a jolt to
the system to almost make me forget the
car's an automatic. 82k miles and its
still pulling strong


Best Features

turbo, turbo, turbo


Worst Features

too much body roll; sloppy steering
