Love My Mits

2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2dr Hatchback

Review

This is the best car I have ever owned. There have been no mechanical problems, it performs well under all circumstances. The mileage on my car are 85% hard (city driving) and it doesn't seem to mind at all (even though it do love the open road!)

Review

Oxidized paint and 3 cracks in the dashboard. Black eclipse with oxidized paint. been painted now a few times by the dealership ( contracted out ). Paint is not oxidized, but still looks bad. dashboard still has 3 cracks, but the dealership states the heat from the southeastern US caused it. anyone else with these problems...contact Mitsubishi and complain.

Incredible vehicle...not one problem with 60k+ on the car...great power, handles great, incredibly smooth ride, fuel/mileage incredible... Blows the Cougar and Celica out of the water...not even in the same class!

Not As Fun As It Looks

2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2dr Hatchback

Review

Bought new from dealer. Besides all 4 tires blowing out, no major problems until now. Things in/on dash are starting to wiggle & jiggle, and a $1000.00 clutch problem has developed at 50,000 mi. Is this the beginning of the end? Fun to drive & turns heads, but has also been the target of 2 acts of vandalism and hit & runs. Awful commuting car, guzzles gas, carries high insurance, and has no resale value. Sportronic tranny is boring & annoying to use(downshifts automatically).Don’t open hatchback after rain, H2O drains directly into trunk (mold). I’m getting rid of mine before it falls to pieces. It’s not as fun as it looks.

Such a fun 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!

Review

Because of this car, I will NEVER buy another Mitsubishi. This was the worse car I've ever had - and that's compared to the one I paid $700 for when I was a teenager. Reasons I don't like this car: - Passenger seat won’t lock into place. - The buttons continually fall off the dashboard and the sunroof controls - The plastic cover over the back of the seat falls off. - The thing always sounds like it has a hole in the muffler. - It always stinks - it's got a slight antifreeze smell. - The glove box wont stay closed. - too cramped inside. - school buses have a better turning radius. I had to terminate my lease 6 monthss early - I couldn't take it anymore!

Eclipse GT 90K Still Prefect

2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2dr Hatchback

Review

I bought the V6 GT loaded! I know I might be the exception, but the car has been awesome and free of problems. The new styling is beautiful and the car (manual) is fun to drive. I owned a BMW 325i, but I enjoy this car more, the fit and finish is better and though the balance and control on the Bimmer was tighter, I paid thousands less. Now I have over 90,000 miles, I have had no mechanical problems. I still have the original brake pads, timing belts, spark plugs, everything. The only thing the car goes through is tire wear (17" V), I am on my third set. Hopefully I won't jinx myself, but I love this car.
