Review of the 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder

  • A fun drop-top, but those seeking real performance should look elsewhere.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Distinctive styling, V6 power in GT trim, easy-to-use convertible top, wind buffeting kept to a minimum.

  • Cons

    Uninspired interior design, intolerable rear seats, antilock brakes are available only as part of an expensive package.

  • What's New for 2002

    Only trivial changes are in store for the Eclipse drop-top this year. Two new exterior colors (Titanium and Flash Blue) are added, and as well as a Mitsubishi triple-diamond chrome badge. The interior is upgraded slightly with illuminated vanity mirrors and a glovebox lamp.

2002 mitsubishi eclipse spyder gs

Vehicle: 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS 2dr Convertible (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

I just recently purchased this car. It is fun to drive. It also is colored a Pearl White. The interior is clean. and the exterior has only one small nick on the bottom of the front. Every thing works in it. It has power locks power windows. It also has a keyless entry. The interior is brown cloth. The car only has 35,000 miles on it. The topper is beige. The driving experience has been so fun. It rides really smoothly and the gas pedal is very sensitive. That means you will be bugging down the road and not realize it. The gas mileage for this car is about 25 mpg. The battery has just started to leak, I think the wires were it charging too much. It holds one CD at a time and has a radio.

The Eclipse Spyder is the most enjoyable car I have ever owned. Absolutely sticks to the road no matter how bad the curves. Easy to talk to the passenger with the top down. Four cylinder has enough power. Gas mileage about the same between the four and six, looking back think six would have been a better choice so I could really drive like a maniac. Hard to beat the top down experience on a warm day.

This car is sleek, and has alot of style. Fun to drive and very comfortable. Milage is good, but not what I expected for a small car. So far very reliable, even in the cold and snow.
