2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS 2dr Hatchback

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.

Favorite 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.

Suggested Improvements

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