Would buy another - if

Vehicle: 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS 2dr Hatchback

I bought this Eclipse a little over a year ago and loved it to death. It had 115K on it with 14K on a rebuilt engine and I did not have any problems with it whatsoever. I brought the miles up to 128k and could tell this car had a LOT of life left in it if it wasn't for a truck plowing into it and totaling it! The seats were very comfortable (back seat space is limited, but the seats are so cushy!), very large trunk, sporty but cute exterior design, and good gas mileage (close to 400/tank with mostly highway miles). Only downsides were that U-turns were a little difficult, a somewhat large blind spot on the side, and the shift knob came very close to the CD deck which was annoying.




A very reliable girl

Vehicle: 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS 2dr Hatchback

I absolutely LOVE this car! I bought this car in 1997 when it had 36,000 miles on it. It now has 192,000 and still starts right up even on the coldest of days. Besides routine maintenance, I have never had to dump any money into this girl. Unfortunately, the Northeastern winters have taken their toll on the body, as it now has extensive rust damage on the undercarriage, including a significant hole in the exhaust...but she is STILL going! As I face the inevitable and begin shopping for a newer car, I will grieve the loss of this old friend.




Great affordable car

Vehicle: 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS 2dr Hatchback

I bought this in 1998 and definitely got my moneys worth! It was a base model, but had a spoiler and sunroof and I added a nicer cd system. The car was very reliable for me driving back and forth to school/work and home. I loved the dark green and how it can fit in just about any parking spot! Also got great gas mileage! While trying to avoid an accident my car ended up over an embankment and hit 8 trees- the car was a mess, but completely took the impact. I broke the front and rear axles, both bumbers were gone and every body panel dented and I...bruised my index finger! GREAT crumple zones! I'm buying a '98 eclipse tomorrow!

I've had a great experience with this car so far. No major difficulties at all.




Not reliable, but fun

by on
Vehicle: 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS 2dr Hatchback

This car is definitely fun to drive at first, but not to long after i bought it, things started going wrong. i don't know how many miles are on it, as the odometer rolls over 1.4 miles for every mile it goes, but i have had to replace the computer, the shocks have gone to crap, and many things on the interior have fallen apart. I also have a highly modified 96 eclipse RS (i did a japanese jdm 4g63t engine swap with many upgraded options including bigger turbo) and it is extremely fast (i have beaten trans ams, lost to z06 vettes) for a 4-cylinder and handles well, but even the japanese engine isn't very reliable.




Its been good to me

Vehicle: 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS 2dr Hatchback

I bought my eclipse in 3/97. It had 28000 miles on it. Now I have 147000. I never had to do any major work. The car runs good and still looks good.

People have always said that Misubishi's are not reliable. True and False. Before you buy an Eclipse(Laser, Talon, =DSMs - same thing) you have to know a few things. Those who say the car is unreliabl...

Im the very proud owner of a 2003 Mitsu Galant GTZ. I traded in my 1995 Mitsu Eclipse GSX with 180,000 trouble free miles on my new Galant in October of 03. I decided to buy the previous generation ...

Well cost wise, if the Z is within $2k of the Eclipse, in the long run, the Z is cheaper. That should be easy enough to predict for resale values. Have you looked at, or in anyway considered a Cross...
