We had the same problem on our 2001 Eclipse GS, in the engine compartment close to the bottom of the car on the firewall, there is a plastic nipple that comes out of the condenser under the dash. I put a piece of rubber hose that was about 4 inches long and bent in an L shape on that nipple, pointing down, no more water on the floor.
2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse 3.0 heating & cooling issue causing me to drink!!\r\nA year ago, my girl's car had an issue with blowing cold air from heater in the dead of winter. It escalated this spring into an issue of the cooling systrem overheating by the temp gauge. The thermostat and cap were changed this Spring, but the car continues to have same issue. Today I spent a rainy afternoon day to ... Read More
look just keep your money i had a car warranty it was not a good thing to buy .warranty are on good .just keep you money and wen it time spee it on the car
I've had my Spyder for 8 years and love it! I hope to keep it for many years to come, but as all cars age, they run the risk of normal deterioration. I've kept mine in good condition, always had regular service and oil changes, even have it detailed every summer. With its age, though, I'm thinking of investing in a car warranty with one of the national companies (CarEx or ... Read More
I recently bought a one owner 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS with 122,000 miles on it. Yes 122,000 miles. The carfax showed it being serviced every 3000-4500 miles at the dealership. The dealer even let me contact the previous owner. He gave it up reluctantly for a new 2009 Honda since he felt there were deals to be had in this economy. He HATES his new car and even asked if ...

I am in the process of possibly purchasing a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Syder Convertible and find that the colour of the interior is a bit odd. The dash board is a dark grey (almost black) and the door panels, seats and carpet is tan. Does anyone know if this is normal for this year or has something possibly been replaced? Thanx so much Newbie
I have had 3 Misubishi's. All have a very good dependability record. However, my wife's 2001 Spyder is one of the most difficult cars to work on I've ever experienced (excluding vans). Why in the world did they design the intake over the spark plugs? It also seems to go through headlights rather quickly. The local mechanic said that was a common issue with the Eclipse. The last is the heater ... Read More
I would contact Mitsubishi corporate if I was you and explain your situation with them. They should be able to get this resolved for you. By the way it sounds like you have a very poor service department that you go to. My 2001 GT had a defective passenger side airbag replaced under warranty about 2 years ago. A sensor in the seat had failed and they replaced the whole back ... Read More
When I got my driver's liscense in 1992, one of the cars on my dream list (but couldn't have it due to insurance) was an Eclipse GSX. I even drove one a few times (awesome car) I liked the way it evolved through the years and even liked the last GSX with the high spoiler (and I'm not a fan of high spoilers). The new body style came out in (2000?) ... Read More
Do 2001 Eclipse hatchbacks offer ELECTRIC remote release on any trim level? I ask because I recently purchased a 2001 RS and am attempting to hook up the deck lid release to an alarm with keyless entry. The Mitsubishi dealer claims that the factory keyless entry does not release the hatch, and that an electric release is not available on any Eclipse. Is this correct? Could one be taken from a ...

I have a 2001 eclipse. It is still under warranty. I reported to the dealership that I was having problems with the AC. I come to find out that something hit my condenser and it is not covered by the warranty. It will cost $700 to fix it. A mechanic looked at it for me after my initial shock and told me that it was a poor design for the condenser ... Read More
I recently purchased a 2001 Eclipse RS with automatic transmission. I used to own a '96 sebring, and i know that did 110. I was testing top speed on my eclipse, but i wouldn't accelerate past about 92mph. I was wondering if anybody knows about Mitsubishi putting a speed limiter on the newer eclipses? If this is not Mitsubishi's doing, has anyone heard or had similar issue? Thanks.
I am looking at buying a new car in the next month and want to kow what people think of this car, if they own a 2000 or 2001. My primary concerns are reliability, performance, and handling.
