2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder Convertible GT 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Great car at a great price. Unsure when I bought whether or not it was the right car for me but it has eliminated all doubts. I'm from Wisconsin and it handles superbly in the snow.


Best Features

Convertible top is easy to use. Can accelerate faster than most cars. Sounds great. Definately leaves a good first impression. Keeps warm in the winter :)


Worst Features

Blind spots-I know you've read about them but they are horrible. I have not had too much of an issue however as I'm an observant driver. I don't know if I'd trust a bad driver with it.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

The convertible top is great. I also like the Pearl White color color. It looks like it has been taken good care of.

2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder Convertible GT 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I bought the car with 43,000 miles on it. The only problems I had were with the AC not cooling (it needed servicing - $600 for "the works") and a bad battery (I bought top of the line at Sears for $120). The engine light was on due to a bad PCV solenoid and now it is good to go. Otherwise the car is fun to drive and looks cool. I don't know why Mitsubishi changed the model to the ugly looking new one. The new one looks like a souped up Avalon.


Best Features

The style, convertible top, and Tiptronic transmission.


Worst Features

Give it a better suspension.

Review

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder may not have the best performance, or be the coolest convertable, but I love it!


Best Features

The drop top...


Worst Features

Change the stereo display to a more normal type...not up high on the dash, and separated like it is now.

Review

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder is a fun car to drive, but no one ever likes to ride in it. Tall people beware - it is very uncomfortable. It has good pick up when you need it. However it is very costly to repair or maintain. I seem to need new tires all the time because of the low air pressure and the tires are very costly. Also, the rims bend too easily which affect the tires. I like the ease of use of the convertible top.


Best Features

The convertable, the quick pick up, great power, good handling, minimal wind with the top down, good sound system, and its cute.... I look cute in it!


Worst Features

Lower maintenance costs, make it more roomy, and less noisy.
