Old and fun

Vehicle: 2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS 2dr Convertible (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

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.




Nice sporty car

Vehicle: 2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS 2dr Convertible (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

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. About every week, I get a compliment on it.




Great ride, fun times!

I bought this car for a fun convertible ride, and it has proven worthy! I love this car and get lots of attention driving it! It has a very smooth ride and great pick up speed!

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.




Love my car!

Vehicle: 2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS 2dr Convertible (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

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.




Highly recommend owning one

Vehicle: 2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS 2dr Convertible (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

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!
