1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse Hatchback RS 2dr Hatchback


Review

For the two years which I've had my car its been great, especially because it has hardly cost me much on repairs. With 18" rims the look is great and sporty, and a loud exhaust to top it off, love the way it turns heads, it's been a great first car and hope to keep it till it dies out!


Best Features

sporty look, good gas mileage


Worst Features

better sound system

Review

This was my first car and it was wonderful! I bought it in 2002 and it ran well for about 7 years without any major issues. The timing belt went but it's likely on all eclipses. It rides well and is very sporty looking. I'd recommend this car to anyone.


Best Features

The sporty look, the size, and sunroof


Worst Features

power windows and locks

Review

Like may youngsters, I chose Eclipse to be my first car out of the college in 12/06. With the lil money I could spend, I wanted a decent sports car but this one is highly unreliable. To name a few problems - engine oil leaks heavily, door handles broken, power window button set broken, poor battery and alternator system, cheap brakes, emission problems, bad oxygen sensors and poor efficiency 17mpg in the city and about 21mpg on hwy to name a few. It broke several times on the road and would not start and got it towed at least 5 times in the last 2 years. However, when it runs it is fun to drive and looks great from outside and inside.


Best Features

Looks great, leather interior, fun to drive when it runs.


Worst Features

Reliability, better electronics, more power and better mpg efficiency, audio system.

Review

I bought this used car in 2001 with 20k mileages. I drove it for almost 8 years without major problem. The several minor problems: Remote Locker on the left door not work well, sometime would not unlock or lock. I had 1 accident due to rain wet road, crashed the left tire and front bumper after slipped into the shoulder of road. Fixed and runs good. Right now it is 74k and still runs good. I would want to keep it until 200k but due to my wife can't drive 5 speed manual so I have to give it up.


Best Features

Sport feeling, Cool looking


Worst Features

none

Review

The car is awesome, it runs beautiful and the roar you get from flooring becomes addicting. I haven't had a problem with the car. I was never interested in one but my friend urged me and I don't regret it at all. Its hard not flooring the pedal especially after adding bolt-ons.


Best Features

The body looks great. For being stock is pretty low. Turbo spoiler, sunroof, power everything.


Worst Features

MORE POWER!!!!
