1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX GSX Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD


Review

I've had two 2nd gen GSXs. These cars are very nice looking, the AWD is great for performance in the snow, wet and dry. The turbo engine has pretty good torque, but it has noticeable turbo lag and the engine runs out of breath at about 6000 RPM, so the fun power band is actually relatively narrow. The mechanical and electrical systems on the car are far from reliable. The dashboard design, while attractive, is ergonomically flawed as the shift lever blocks the stereo. There are squeaks and rattles from interior panes and suspension parts, rain can leak into the cabin. If you're tall, cars with a sun roof can be a tight fit.

Review

Everybody hears about the reputation these cars have, but people who have experience will tell you different. If the car is taken care of, this car is awesome. It has the tried and true 4G63 which can be made powerful with ease. The '95 model has an EEPROM ECU and no CAS so it will be a positive for modders. Also, since its a '95 and AWD you are exempt from OBDII test and dyno test. This is the best year, just do the conversion and you are set.


Best Features

The 4G63 turbo motor and AWD.


Worst Features

The 97-99 body conversion.

Review

Overall, this car is by far my best investment ever. It looks great, and drives fantastic. It provides great performance and decent handeling. The only downside to my car is the gas milage while driving it hard. I don't plan on getting rid of it anytime soon. Upgrading parts on it is fairly cheap, and makes it even better.


Best Features

The looks. Inside and out, it looks, feels, and drives awesome.


Worst Features

The only thing that I can think of would be some better springs/coilovers on the car. I plan on upgrading mine. It brakes down every once in a while, but overall it is a great car.

Review

I have only had it for two weeks, but it's completly stock and runs great and so smooth. I'm loving it! Not sure what I plan on doing with it, but I just hope it doesn't turn out to be like my 1995 Eagle Talon.

Review

In the course of owning this car, I
have become a DSM mechanic. It is
important to realize that anytime you
attempt to push HP levels beyond what
the manufacturer intended, you
sacrifice reliability. However, I have
been more unlucky than most. I was
diagnosed with crank walk 1 month after
purchase. $3000 later and a few
modifications the tranny exploded. Now
another motor later, and replacement of
most moving parts, and at ~400WHP most
of my issues have been resolved. As a
commuter car or grocery getter, this is
not the ideal car. As a platform to
create a very respectable 4 cylinder
drag car it is ideal. For that power
you pay the price in reliabity.


Best Features

AWD + (slightly bigger) Turbo + boost = 0-60 faster than any production car.


Worst Features

Crankwalk is a problem known to mitsubishi. A full recall would cost hundreds of millions in full block replacements. It is real and it is quite common. If stricken with this there is a great deal of info on the web about 90-94 block replacements to curtail future crankwalk issues.
