2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is the worst vehicle that I have ever owned. I have had it for two years and it has been in the shop for over two months during the time I have had it. It has had major problems that multiple dealers have been unable to fix.


Favorite Features

styling, performance


Suggested Improvements

improve build quality. I have had a faulty fan, bad top, replaced axle, bad door sensor, squeaky dash, and bad transmission. I will never buy another Mitsubishi and this was my third one.

2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

When i got this car i didn't have but 40 some thousand miles, and IT WAS THE WORST mistake of my life buying this car, it runs horrible and has been in and out the shop for the past two years from everything to a new top new tires axles and just about everything under the hood. Does not go in to reverse the best either. cracked dash and sound system is also terrible. Rattles and shakes anytime you hit a bump or a turn.

2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

In the first two years I have owned this new vehicle here is what has broken down. The horn, headlight hard wiring, the convertible roof motor, the radio, a speaker. The headlight hard wirng needs to be replaced again. I am so dissapointed.


Favorite Features

Car looks great at dusk.


Suggested Improvements

This car needs a more meaningful warranty. Mitsubishi only gives a 36000 mile warranty because thats how long it will last and not a mile more.

2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I had it for about a year and 1/2. Very poorly made car. Should be much faster for a V6, depreciates like no other. make sure you get in on the class action suit against mitsu over the garbage rims they slap on the car...


Favorite Features

looks


Suggested Improvements

stiffer ride, more power.

2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS 2dr Convertible (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my first time ever writing a review on anything and I'm trying to save someone a big headache. This car is a waste!! When it rains the back floors get wet and it's not because of the top (mine was changed twice!!). It has horrible mpg and interior after awhile starts to look real cheap!! This car should def be a 2 seater and what is going on with that trunk? Can't really fit anything that can't fold in there. The second cup holder inside the middle console was a horrible idea.


Favorite Features

A cheap convertible
