I have had several cars in my days American and imports. And by far this is my favorite. I'm a Tech for VW so i know my cars very well. you can't beat an All Wheel Drive turbo car with a manual trans. it's so much fun, its so reliable and it's one of the nicest looking cars ever made. from the mean look of the front end to the wing (spoiler) in the back. it's so easy to squeeze out 350 hp or even more out of this car and cheap too. All in all i think this car is by far one of the best still out there 2008.
Turbo, All wheel drive, spoiler, front end, rear end, manual trans, brakes.
stereo is in bad location. 12v aux input jack is in a horrible location. hard to connect anything and still shift gears into first,
This car gets outstanding mpg ( miles per gallon) for its year and Mitsubishi put in the awd 5spd turbo engine which lets the car punish the pavement. Also, because its a awd car, its a bit easier to drive during winter time because it gets better traction when all the wheels move instead of a 2wd car. This car is reliable, fast, sharp looking, and fuel efficient. This car has all the consumer needs and wants!!!
I bought this car from a lady I worked with. I bought it from her with 150,000 miles on it. I knew she was nice to it so I got it. I had a few minor issues with the car. The struts just went, the master cylinder just went and my truck opens sometimes. I don't mind because it is an old car. It is fast with the turbo at 9 PSI. I like the design of the exterior and the nice GSX rims. It has amazing handling and makes everyone look at it because of the nice design. Good car to mod if you plan on it. Has quick acceleration. Girls love it and I would for sure buy another one if they come out with another GSX version.
The spoiler, body, turbo, AWD, rims, comfortable and looks nice with tint.
Ram intake for the turbo, 2.5 inch exhaust to free air flow, tint, short shifter because the shifter is to close to the radio. Feel every bumb in the car while driving.
I bought my GSX new back in 1998. I
made some modifications over the years
to the exhaust and intake. Strut tower
braces front and rear help to cure the
car's roll during high speed cornering.
There are differences in the 4G63
engine from the 1G to the 2G, mainly
the turbo and intake manifold. The GSX
is the best model because of the AWD
and 4G63 engine. The non turbo models
have to deal with a Dodge Neon engine
that is very troublesome. As with any
car, follow the maintenance schedule
religiously and you won't have a
problem. I've used synthetic oil since
it came home, and I've had no valve
issues or oil squirter blockage that
causes the 4G63 valve click.
Body that is unique. I have not felt
the need to toy with the looks of the
car. My 98 had a two tone interior
(black with charcoal accents).
Stock hairdryer needs to be upgraded.
Strut tower braces to reduce body roll
during cornering. 3inch exhaust. The
stock infintiy radio has a tendency to
blow the stock rear passenger side
speaker. The fog lights are impossible
to change yourself. Larger brakes.
When I bought this car it only had
18000 miles. Yes you read that right
eighteen thousand. Glanzmann Subaru
got the car from a company in PA that
used it as a company car. The car is
in excellent condition. Almost new!
(The previous owner was a smoker, so
that bothers me) no offense smokers.
This car has everything, AWD, Turbo,
Looks, 17inch rims, good for factory
system, power everything. Though I'm
not a sunroof fan. This car brings
negative attention from the wanna be's
though. Great car over all.
AWD, Turbo, Looks, Grip, ability to
smoke neons, civics, and other "fast"
Heavy car "needs a diet"
If the forth gen eclipse goes back to
turbo and AWD, use the 2.4 liter
engine to increase torque
