2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS 2dr Hatchback


Review

I got this car for free with 160k miles when i sold my other car, anyways the guy drove it for 3 hrs overheating due to bad radiator so when i got it i replace the radiatorand put around 10k more miles...the car hold fine with no other issues so i decide to pump it up a little. Now it has 250k miles and dont even smoke!!! Great car but it has no $ value if you are going to sell it.

2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS 2dr Hatchback


Review

I bought this car brand new in 8-00. I have never had a minute's trouble except one time when the battery died. Other than that, I kept up with the normal maintenance, including oil changes, filters, tire rotations, tranny flush, timing belt, etc. I absolutely loved this car. I had it until the other day when a car ran a red light and I hit it. The airbags deployed and I walked away without a scratch. The car, however, suffered more damage than it was worth. I was very upset about having to give it up. I'd probably buy another Eclipse, but would definitely upgrade.

P.S. I got a great insurance settlement!


Best Features

I felt it really had nice pick up, especially at higher speeds (65+) it had that little extra umph I needed to pass. I also liked that it always looked stylish, never outdated.


Worst Features

Why black interiors? I live in Florida! Black is hot!

Review

My Eclipse is absolutely the car of my dreams. I wouldn't have another car..especially for my first car. It's been a great gas saver--about 300 miles to the tank which costs 25 dollars to fill up! Ahhh, it really was love at first drive!

EVERYTHING!

Review

I didn't set out to buy this car, was
sort of conned into it by a boyfriend,
then stuck with it when he didn't buy
it off of me like he said he would.
When I moved to Vermont I thought no
way this car would last one winter.
Now I'm on my third winter. I put on
studded snow tires and this car
handles better than a 4x4. People are
surprised when I tell them. Sure it
still can't handle deep snow, but
roads are usually plowed, so it's not
a problem. It's amazing how much you
can fit in the hatch.


Best Features

I saw some reviews that complain of the cars pick-up. I disagree. I think the car has excellent pickup. And I can cruise up these Vermont mountain hills at 65mph, no problem. Perhaps it is the 5 speed transmission that helps.


Worst Features

More head room in the back seats. Of course that would change the look of the car.

Review

I love my doodle-mobile! It's cute,
fun, reliable and an overall pleasure
to drive. It's a perfect single
person's car. And, the hatch provides
ample space for luggage or just about
anything you need to haul. My next car
will be an upgrade to the GTS . .
Mitsubishi did it right with this cutie!


Best Features

Appearance, handling, acceleration and reliability are my favorite features.


Worst Features

The interior quality of the RS isn't the greatest.
