Best car I've owned
By hot_karl on
2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2dr Hatchback
After owning 3 Camaros I decided it was time to try something different so I went ahead and bought an Eclipse GT. I owned the car for 6 years and drove it hard all year round, did numerous cross country trips with it and had very few problems. It may not have been the fastest car out there but it was still very fun to drive. The handling felt great and the V6 sounded awesome when you revved it past 3000 rpm. Gas mileage hovered around 28-30 on my trips which consisted mostly of highway driving. I sold it about a year ago after I let a friend of mine drive it and he burnt up the clutch. Now I'm trying to find another car that was just as great as my Eclipse was.
Decent power, looks great, sounds great, handling felt great, reliable, and you'll be surprised what you can fit in that trunk!
Routine maintenance (tires, timing belt, spark plugs etc) got a little pricey. It only took premium fuel.
