Good looks can be deceiving

2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

Review

The third generation Eclipse is one of the sharpest looking vehicles on the road. Mitsu engineers did a fine job with its lines. They also made a lot of people happy by putting a V6 engine in the top model. This is one of the most affordable sports cars (bang for your buck) on the market.

2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I've had an overall positive experience with this car. The only problem that I've experienced is with the power moonroof.... at one point it started to shake while opening, and got progressively worse. I brought it to the dealership to repair it while under warranty, and it was fixed (a bad cable was replaced).

Review

I have owned 2 Honda products previous to my Eclipse. Ihave found the quality of the Eclipse to equal or better in all areas. The financing and incentives offered by Mitsubishi made this a much more attractive purchase than another Honda. I was able to get much more car for my money with Mitsubishi than Honda. Hondas are excellent cars, but they are far too proud of them and unwilling to deal on the price.

Nice Looking Car

2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This car is one of the sharpest looking cars on the road. It handles well and has good acceleration with the 4-cyl and 5-speed. Mine has 25,000 miles on it and I have had no problems. However, the paint on the front of the car is terrible. I have so many chips to the point it needs a new paint job after only 1.5 years!! The interior is of low quality grade materials.(seat fabric, and dash board) Overall, I would go to the Acura RSX for the money. I just may!!

Review

The Eclipse GT is a solid "fun-ride". It looks great inside and out. The fuel economy is good. I have had no problems with mine except the drivers window sticking a little in cold weather.

Hard to Eclipse an Eclipse

2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

Review

This is an all around fun GT car. No, it's not a "sports car" like a Porsche, it's a GT car like a Lancia or Alpha Romeo. The car has excellent pick up and good cornering. The car can be pushed much harder than most drivers realize. As such, early body roll halts at .7 G's and then you can really feel the car dig in. The torque band is very broad, but if you push the rev's a little bit (4200 RPM's) the car definitely takes off.

Review

The torque steer is pretty severe and the handling is a bit soft. The engine and transmission are exceptional.

Review

It's a solid built car and very enjoyable to drive. So far I had one problem with power seat but fixed under warranty no problem. The handling is not as agile as Calica or RSX. You should rather cross shop V6 GT to V6 Accord or Solara.

Review

This is a wonderful car. I have the GT model and it is wonderful in the snow with the ABS, Front wheel drive and traction control. It is so much fun to drive, especially when teenagers are trying to race you from a complete stop. I have not had one thing go wrong with the car.
