1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2dr Hatchback


Review

This car is soooo much fun!!! When you drive it around (especially if you have a sun roof, if your thinking of getting on get one with a sun roof) you feel really awesome. Usually they have some engine problems so that is something to consider and you want to make sure your car is in good shape before you buy it, but Mitsubishis are great, and this is one of its best!

a poorly designed car

1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T Turbo 2dr Hatchback


Review

This car is one of the worst cars I have ever owned. The seats are uncomfortable, no lumbar support,no support under your legs, no knee room under the steering wheel. It rides rough, which should not be confused with a stiff sport suspension, which this car does NOT have. It handles miserably, all the turbo power goes to the left front wheel, pulling the car all over the road when the driver accelerates, especially on uneven pavment. On corners the car behaves unpredictably. In short, it is not a sports car. It is a dressed up econo car.

Review

Overall, the Eclipse GS-T has been a wonderful vehicle. Minor problems here and there. Getting close to 30 now, and looking for a bit more "mature" vehicle, but the car has been great. The 17-24 year old that buys mine will love it!

A Great 'Fun Car'

1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T Turbo 2dr Hatchback


Review

I bought this car brand new, and must say of the 4 cars I've owned, this has been my favorite! It's cockpit like driver's seat makes you feel like you're ready to fly. The turbo is responsive, and supplies ample power to this car. Rear seats are small(as with most sport coupes), and shouldn't be considered for more than children or extra luggage. The car handles great, and was comfortable enough for me to make many cross country trips in. The stereo system absolutely rocked (as much as one can ask for from a factory system). If you're considering a sports coupe in this price range, take a hard look at the GS-T or GS-X.

Turbo is the way to go.

Review

Have owned for less than a year but feel this car is the most fun I've ever had on 4 wheels. Plenty of power, very responsive and handles like a dream. Stock stereo (Infinity) is great sounding and the AWD is all it's cracked up to be.
