2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

I love everything about this car --
performance, looks, and reliability.
The V6 w/ 5 spd is awesome. The tranny
is very smooth. The infinity sound
system is sweet! The suspension
handles well, although I wish it were a
little stiffer. I have aftermarket
wheels on it, since the stock wheels
were not my favorite, but other than
that the exterior design of this car is
awesome. The modern look of the
interior and dashboard makes it a fun
car to be in.


Best Features

The engine, 5 spd tranny, infinity sound system, styling, and the sound of the stock exhaust is awesome


Worst Features

relocate the cupholders, telescoping steering wheel, slightly more head room, and better turning radius

2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

I've owned this car for four years now
and absolutely love it. It is a heavy
car which is great in winter driving
conditions as well.


Best Features

I don't really have a favorite feature although the moonroof is nice and the car has a great heater for those cold winter months.


Worst Features

The turn radius on the car could be a bit more loose, for a small car this one is pretty tight.

Review

This is a great looking, great
sounding, pretty fun to drive car.
When I brought it home the first day,
my brother asked me if it came with a
speeding ticket. It just looks like
you should be driving it hard.

I mostly use it on weekends, but
occasionally drive it to work on snowy
days. It handles surprisingly well in
the snow.

My only doubt in buying this car is
whether it would hold up over the long
run. After almost five years, it's
still doing everything that I expect.
It's nice to have a car that still
catches my eye and makes me glad to
own it two years after it was paid for!


Best Features

V6 + 5-speed rocks, awesome stereo, drives great, looks terrific, hatchback is very versatile


Worst Features

Turning radius is too wide, more seat adjustment in the base, use higher quality materials (no hard plastic), either make a real back seat or make a two-seater, less road noise, fewer squeaks and rattles, telescoping steering wheel, both windows auto down/up, flat trunk floor

2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2dr Hatchback


Review

It's been a fun car *and* reliable &
economical to boot. Good-looking and
practical! Have not had any repair
issues even at 75K miles. It is
sporty, yet can be roomy enough in a
crunch. Lower the rear backrests, and
there's considerable luggage space.
Don't like the rear visibility esp.
with the rear spoiler.


Best Features

Adequate zip, looks, and reliability.


Worst Features

The manual shift stick vibrates funny sometimes. Poor rear visibility.
