I pulled my father's Mitsubishi out of a junk yard after it was on fire. put some gas and a new battery in it and it ran and it has been the most reliable car i have ever owned. i don't really like the size of the back seat but i don't really use it any way. and it's really fast with some small cheap performance mods.

I bought the 1992 GS Eclipse in April, by May I had to replace the cluth, and ever since then the Eclipse has been in and out of the auto shop. I had to have a new starter put in, the alternator rebuilt, and am currently having a problem with the Cam Shaft Sensor. It will drive perfectly for a little while, then all of the sudden the engine RPM's will drop down to 0 and the car will die, and not restart. I also have a problem with the syncro's in my 3rd gear. It was fun to drive...really fast, but it is not worth the hassle of the constant promlems.

This car has been problematic since I
bought it. My eclipse looks gorgeous on
the outside, yet its looks are indeed
deceiving. The automatic transmission
has failed numerous times. (ie: 6
rebuilds and 8 other transmission
failures since its initial purchase)A
head transmission specialist of a local
mitsubishi dealership stated that the
transmission design of the early
nineties eclipses, talons, and lasers
were designed in a manner that is
insufficient at handling the torque
produced by the motor. A trans
specialist of AAMCO transmissions
stated, "these transmissions are a time
bom wiating to explode." This is a
sleek, yet volatile car.
