1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS 2dr Convertible


Review

I bought this car, thinking it would be a nice reliable ride. Another plus was that I thought it was imported; boy was I wrong. I soon discovered that the top leaked like a river (2 days after purchase), and the transmission shifted erratically. My mechanic said these cars are disasters (engine leaks, failures, etc.); however, I gave it a chance, but before I traded, I knew the tranny was getting ready to explode. I also had a problem maintaining the oil level in the car. I would not recommend this car to anyone who needs a completely reliable vehicle or who doesn't like to take a shower on his/her way to work or school.


Favorite Features

The vette style interior and console.


Suggested Improvements

The convertible top, motor, body, and transmission.

Review

This was a great car and it was a lot of fun to drive with the top down. although, I live in Florida and you would think I would have the top down all the time, but I didn't! With the humidity down here, I would need the AC on and with how rain here is so unpredictable, it would leak through the soft top, it was so annoying!


Favorite Features

It had a lot of kick to it and it definitely is a sporty car. Although I am 6'0" so it did feel a little bit small at times.


Suggested Improvements

Definitely improve the quality of the soft top, it was horrible, although it has survived 3 hurricanes. Convertibles aren't all that fun to drive here in Florida with the humidity! It would be more fun for people that have summer 3 months out of the year.

Review

Try to get parts for this car . Some are made of pot metal, they break and dealers do not have replacements. The car looks nice if you can hold it together without duct tape.

Review

The moment I drove this car I bought it. It has stunning looks and handling, awesome exhaust note and the head turning appeal. Yes my top leaks but a small price to pay for such a exciting car. I have 93,000 on it and all original parts, I have never had a more reliable car. I drive this car every day and it never gets old I recommend this car to anyone who wants a sexy sport convertible that gets great gas mileage.


Favorite Features

The road gripping handling is amazing it is almost impossible to lose control. Everywhere I go people tell me what a beautiful car it is styling is right on. The exhaust note is incredible i feel like I'm driving a race car every time I start her up.


Suggested Improvements

4 wheel disc brakes please. make back seats into something more useful. A bump in horsepower is always welcome also.
