Would buy another - if I could find one!

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.
Comfortable seating, fun to drive (5 speed a must!), very reliable, trunk space.
Ability to change CDs while in 1st, 3rd, or 5th gear would be nice, sturdier cup-holder, better turn radius.
