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.

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.

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!

My previous car was a 1990 crx -
automatic, dx. That I didn't want to
sell because was so dependable but I
needed the money. A friend of mine sold
me the car cheap- dirt cheap ($600). As
you can imagine, the car was in need of
some major "tlc" but it ran and was a 4
cylinder. The first time I drove it I
fell in love. As beat up and horrible
looking that it was, it got up and went
like it had been hit in the rear end by
a locomotive. I haven't regreted the
purchace since. It's never left me
anywhere stranded, always starts and is
a blast to drive.
