1992 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS Turbo 2dr Hatchback


Review

Why I gave all 10? Because it has worked great for a family of husband and wife. It has taken us from long to short distances. I bought this car from a private party for $700 and I have spended no more than $500 mechanical issues. Change oil every 3- 4k. miles and spark plugs, all filters twice a year. Always take it to a certified mechanic for better service I also use 89&92 fuel grade. Motor still running great I would buy another car like this, meavy an upgrade to 1995. This car gives me an average of 25 mpg although when I got it was in 17 mpg. With good service got better mpg. On the hwy 30+ mpg riding at 80 mph my average speed a car with turbo and its age I say I own a great vehicle...


Favorite Features

Turbo, excellent handling, manual transmission the best, location of gears over all one of the best vehicles made.


Suggested Improvements

head lights and length just 1 ft. more

1992 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2dr Hatchback


Review

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.


Favorite Features

the room in the 1.8 makes it really easy to work on.


Suggested Improvements

Small mods cut off the box to the intake, new muffler, take good care of it I have so many things for factory like my transmission, fuel pump, and oil pump if you take care of it it should last you for a while

1992 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2dr Hatchback


Review

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.


Favorite Features

It is a fast, great handling, fun to drive car.


Suggested Improvements

Too much horsepower for the transmission to handle. Elecrtical problems. Poor interior quality.

1992 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2.0 2dr Hatchback


Review

This car is a tank. i got in two accidents. a scratch for a honda civic and a van, mine going 45mph and caused a bent radiator and hood. this car is so safe to stick in high speeds. also this car is fast. its easy to get to 90mph at 4500rpms in 4th gear. its a hot HOT CAR. if your thinking turbo, well think again this car hasnt lost on me yet unless you like lag.


Favorite Features

the build quality, the controls right where you need it, the engine speed and of course the ability to customize!!!!


Suggested Improvements

a bigger back seat or convertable would be nice and addicting to drive, i cant help it when people stare, HELP ME! LOL

1992 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS Turbo 2dr Hatchback


Review

This car has always been a lot of fun to drive, but when it started having major problems it became more of a burden than anything. My odometer just passed 90,000 and now the turbo is out. It just locked up one day. I've replaced the clutch, the radiator, the slave cylinder, and the valve cover gasket. These repairs cost me between $300 and $900. Now with the turbo out, I've decided to get rid of it.


Favorite Features

Turbo. Until it goes out.


Suggested Improvements

Be very meticulous in maintenance schedules. Watch the oil level, it burns like crazy.
