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 GS 2dr Convertible (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Handles well, rides well, runs well, nice support with leather driver seat. 5 speed shifts good and ratios are spaced well so you are not always shifting. My highway milage is consistently 31.2 mpg with the 4 cylinder. Better than rated average. Very little convertible quiver on rough roads. My golf bag fits in the trunk. Factory infinity stereo is very good. You can spend more but this is just an all around fun ride for the price. PS Would you media reviewers get over the back seat size. You not reviewing your dad's Buick.
