Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS 2dr Convertible (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

I love this car it was my dream car... It was all i expected - fast, stylish, and an eye catcher. I often bumped curbs but other than that it was great - never had a problem brought it at 52000miles. The only thing i had to do is get a new battery at 79000 miles.

Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

I bought my UV Blue Pearl right off the showroom. I have since installed several performance parts including intake, exhaust, springs, and new stickier tires - this helped a lot, and I have much more to do. This car is a babe-magnet and is wonderful with the top down. Hardly any wind buffeting at all. This is a perfect car to modify and customize. It will not be a rocket, however because the convertibles weigh a little more than average. Enjoy.




Great car

Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GTS 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

After reading the expert reviews I was a little leary about buying a Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder. However, I got a deal I couldn't turn down and have since enjoyed it immensely. If I wanted a backseat and a lot of trunk space I wouldn't have bought a convertible. This is a great car to drive. The V6 engine accelerates smoothly and handles fairly well. It is quite comfortable for the driver and passenger with easy to use controls. The convertible top is easy and quick to raise and lower and with the top down, there is minimal problems with the wind. Overall this is a great car and a lot of fun to drive. I am glad I ended up buying it.
