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


Review

The Eclipse Spyder is relatively fun to
drive, but ranks below other sport
convertibles I have owned, e.g., the
BMW Z3. The size is more accomodating,
but design features such as the huge
right blind-spot and the raised door
jambs make this car a little
uncomfortable. Handling is good and
tight, as a sports cars should be.
However, gas mileage on my particular
car is lower than I have experienced on
similar vehicles/engines. All in all,
a fun mid-level car that is probably a
few thousand dollars too expensive
(even though I did get a pretty good
deal).


Best Features

Power top

Fix the blind spots, PLEASE!!!

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Looks good with top up or down. Handling on twisty roads is exceptional. If you hit a turn too fast the steering and handling is good enough to bail you out.


Worst Features

Hard to see when the top is up. There is an ugly welded seam below the doors. No seam on the coupes. Turbo charge the six for about 250 HP. Back seat sits too straight-up.

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


Review

Deep in Minnesota and bought a
convertible on a snowy January day. I
have no regrets. The car handles better
in the snow than the wifes minivan.
Total fun in the sun and the car turns
many heads.


Best Features

Awesome sound system. Styling - eye catching.


Worst Features

Add adjustable lumbar support to the passenger seat
