Great car

Vehicle: 1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse

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.

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

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

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

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

My beat up jewel....

by on
Vehicle: 1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse

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.
