A real stormer!

Vehicle: 1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS Turbo 2dr Hatchback

I have had the privilege of owning this car for 10 years now. I bought it from my neighbor for $1000 in the spring of '04 as it was hit in the back end. I fixed it up for another 1K and for 2K I had a real rocket ship. Power is unbelievable! will plaster you to the back of the seat in first four gears! Stay out of the turbo and get 30 mpg on highway. Who could ask for more? I have restored it in last couple years and looking forward to many more carefree miles. If you get a chance to get one...JUST DO IT!!




Great car

Vehicle: 1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS Turbo 2dr Hatchback

Owned the car for 10 years and replaced the battery and tires and did routine maintainence, that's ALL. The car was quick with loads of torque steer, awesome car.




The basics of the basics

Vehicle: 1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse 2dr Hatchback

I recently got my 90 eclipse base and it's 1.8 L non turbo FWD. and it's my first car so I'm kinda disappointed because it's not what I thought I was getting it's only got 94 horsepower but it's a great car for gas. I'm at about 174,000 miles and there's nothing wrong engine wise except that it's not fast at all. i mean this car has never even heard of the word torque. but it's a good car for saving gas.and if your only taking about 1 person with you. and my hatch arms don't hold it up to i gotta get some new ones but i hear that happens all the time.




17 years of owning this

Vehicle: 1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD

With 17 years of owning this car I have to say it has been fun. A rebuilt trans, a new engine and many other things but I have gone 175,000 miles with it and gone all over the country. many memories and it still looks almost new, which surprises even the dealers.




A "poor man's porsche"

Vehicle: 1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS Turbo 2dr Hatchback

I owned my 1990 Eclipse Turbo from mid-1990 to the end of 1998. In that period I logged a bit over 46,000 miles in this little rocket, and enjoyed the heck out of it. I sold it only because I'd heard that that the turbo engines were developing problems after 50-60,000 miles, and my wife didn't like driving it once the roads started filling up with huge SUVs. In retrospect I wish I'd kept it a couple of years longer. The torque steer when you accelerate is noticeable, but manageable. Overall, a lot of car for the money!




Best car i ever had

Vehicle: 1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2.0 2dr Hatchback

Though it had its faults, torque steer being one of them, this is the car that I still think about.

the mid-80's. In 1990 you could get an AWD Turbo Eclipse GSX. Where did that company go and how can we get them back?...

Although I am not familiar at all with the TC, I test drove an 06 eclipse GT just yesterday. While it's not the exact model your looking for, the interior volume should be the same for both models. ...


I owned a 1990 Eclipse turbo. It was an absolute blast to drive for a front wheel drive but from a quality perspective it was a piece of garbage. That was a joint Mitsubishi/Chrysler effort so maybe...
