Overall I've been very happy with my 97' Eclipse GS.
For starters, the car is absolutely gorgeous... easily
one of the most attractive 90's sports cars. The
interior is also very well designed. Small back
seats.. but really, you shouldn't buy a car like this
with backseat comfort in mind. No problems with
reliability... give it routine maintenance and watch
the gasket (as it seems to be the least reliable part
of the car). The engine itself is decent in terms of
performance. It is competant, but not particularly
fast... If you're serious about speed look into a GST
or GSX. Fuel economy is excellent, and the car
handles very nicely. Pretty good sound system, too.
Beautiful exterior, well-designed interior, good fuel
economy, reliable engine
I love this car, this is the perfect
car for someone who wants to learn how
to modify cars. This car is safe, fun,
and reliable. The only bad thing about
this car is that the gas gauge is
wrong. Since it is all-wheel-drive the
gas tank is split in two. So when it
says your on empty and the low fuel
light is on, you actually have 7
My favorite features of this car would
have to be the turbo, the all-wheel-
drive, and the moon-roof.
Better quality cup holder. Second
Eclipse I had with the darn cup holder
