I got the Eclipse for my first car with 150k for around 2k. First off, it's loud since it's a spyder. it interior and exterior are ok for a sports car of those years. reliability is awesome since its at almost 200k now. its fun and very stiff ride, you will feel all the bumps. You will also feel body roll and over steer when going around corner's fast.
The main problems I have with this car is 1 it's FWD which I'm not fond of, and 2 it's hard to find performance parts for.

I have had the car for about 6 months,
and I have had no problems. The 4 cyl.
isn't powerful (as most aren't), but it
is plenty of for me. I'm not really
hugging any curves on any huge
mountains in Indiana, if you know what
I mean? There is a huge blind spot
when the top is up. You kindof have to
look the best you can and pray. The
top goes up and down with ease, and you
get a lot of attention in the car.

This car has been very enjoyable.For
the price I think it is very well
rounded. I do not have one complaint. I
have owned alot of cars I have to say
it is on the top of my list. I drive
from Florida to Pennsylvania straight
thru and not any pain.Love it.

Prior to purchasing my Spyder, I owned
an Eagle Talon (same car as an
Eclipse) for several years and fell in
love with it. In fact, I have 2
children as well as a baby girl and we
all enjoy the ride. The lack of rear
room has never been a problem for us.
It's a beautifully designed car -
exquisite! Since I am not a real
speed freak, I have been comfortable
with the 4 cylinder although I still
sometimes wish I'd have bought a 6
cylinder. Using the Sportronic
shifting provides a little extra jolt.

I love this car, it has plenty of
power for a 4 cylinder, it's quick and
responsive especially on bends, my
husband loves to drive it, my son and
daughter both love driving it, too.
It drives like a sports car - low and
tight and sticks to the road.
Dropping the top couldn't be easier,
and it's a blast to drive around with
the top down, very little wind in your
face. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend
this car to anyone who wants something
fun to drive that is reliable and
affordable and absolutely beautiful!
