1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T Turbo 2dr Hatchback


I purchased this car at 117,000. In just over a year and a half it's at 142,000. At 142,000, the factory turbo is still working just fine. Just make sure you don't miss the regular oil changes and keep up with your maintenance and the car will continue to work well for you. At 10 years old, there is no rust and everything works. Overall a great car, though keep in mind that with a turbo your maintenance is higher because so much of the engine bay is used up making it harder to remove and get to necessary parts.

Best Features

Turbo of course, low profile, color (red), spoiler, fascia, 46g3 engine.

Worst Features

AWD should have been standard on this car considering the turbo. Too much horsepower for a 2WD, not that I'm complaining (oversteer is too much at times), not great in rain or snow, however keeping it in 1st or 2nd keeps it under control. Stronger headlights, stiffer suspension.
