The best car ever made!

1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX GSX Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD

Review

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.

Its Worth It!

Review

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!!!

Eclipse GSX

Review

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.

Had mine for 6 years now.

Review

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.

Poor Man's Porche 911 turbo!

Review

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.

Great car

Review

Very fast and responsive and grips the road phenomenally. Because of AWD, it turns like on a rail. Excellent in snow too. I compared to a WRX with great expectations, but this car has indistinguishable performance, plus leather, s/r and good looks. Almost no repairs in 5 plus years--the best of any car I've owned, which includes some great Euro sports sedans.

Review

I love everything about this car.. There are a few fixes that should be done, better bushings in the shifter. A bigger turbo for sure,also the tire size is a bit big Mybe a 17x7 in stead of 17x7.5.. Overall this is my first import and I'm hooked Thanks DSM.

Review

bought it with 15K, now have 40k, no problems (with regular maintenance). turbo needs to be taken care of, but nothing major. ride is choppy: you feel every bump. ride is also noisy, but not really noticeable. radio is directly in front of shifter: cant use it while in first gear

Review

This is a great car to own. With a stock quarter mile in the upper 14's this car is a performance monster. With better fuel economy then the big V8 american powerhouses and similar performance i would say this is the best bang for the buck. This also is in my opinion one of the best looking cars on the street.
