Review

K, Enough about this ride being a chick magnet! I'm a chick and I drive this thing! I'm not the typical type of girl, though, No car accidents! It's a sporty, fast car! Still have to see if my 2 toddlers would fit in it! This is the type of car that I've always wanted and at 25, I got it, WOOP WOOP! Sorry to all the suckas who have to get a car to try and get girls. Better luck at a bar!


Best Features

Exterior, Convertible, Comfortable!


Worst Features

More room in back, but what can you ask for with a speedster!

Review

I bought the car with 57k miles on it - hasn't even had it's first timing belt change - from the second owner. I thoroughly enjoy the car, and it is quite quick. I would not call it "fast", but it does move pretty darn good!


Best Features

5-speed, convertible top, turbo


Worst Features

better speakers - front door ones are broken.

Review

I bought my 98 GS-T Spyder for my 50th b'day. Very fun to drive but pushing the clutch in Atlanta traffic got old. Finally let my teenage son drive it to school for his Sr year. Had to have the valve guide replace, seems to be typical for Mits. engines. Recently the throw out bearing seized up so had to cough up $900 for new clutch kit. Just started driving again and enjoying it while summer traffic is a little lighter. Yes, the front speakers went awol but I replaced with inexpensive set of Jensens from Auto Zone that sound great. Convertible top and brackets are now in need of repair.


Best Features

the look, the turbo


Worst Features

better valve guides in all Mitsubishi engines.

Review

Well I bought an eclipse syder gst with 48,000 miles, and I think the GS-T is reliable and also fast. I have won so many races, I picked up a lot of girls and I have no problems with it. When u first drive the gst it feels fast but then you don't even notice until you drive a normal eclipse. I think the eclipse spyder gst will last me for a long time.


Best Features

the convertible top, the performance and the sound from the turbo.


Worst Features

tweeter from the rfom suxs, and needs less police attraction

Review

I am the second owner of this car and the only thing I had to fix was the alternator and that was recently. My car has 140,000 miles on it and it still runs great. I didn't drive it for about two of the six years that I've had it, but I put roughly about 30,000 miles or more on it every other year. I wish it could last forever.


Best Features

The exterior is the best thing on the car. I love the turbo because I had a GS model before and the GST has the power I needed.


Worst Features

The seats need to be made a bit more comfortable.
