1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS 2dr Hatchback

Review

The Eclipse RS has an I4 engine with a 5 speed transmittion. It certainly can get out of its way but it also has a sporty design which econ boxes can't match. I like the basic design with roll up window. My model has the optional 17" wheels which improve handling and look great. The car had an head gasket problem but the dealership replaced the head gasket and the timing belt and water pump. So beware of head gaskets issue before your purchase.

Favorite Features

Handling and economy is great!

Suggested Improvements

The engine should not need a head gasket after 57K miles(although my dealship fixed it). The RS has a Dodge engine, I would have prefered the Mitubishi engine
