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

Review

I have had this car for 3 years and bought it with 73,000 miles on it. It now has 148,000 miles on it. The v6 is torquey but still good on fuel. The manual transmission shifts smooth but has a direct feel. It leans a bit more than I'd like in sharper turns but never feels unsafe. I've never had to do any major repairs to this car. Only thing that broke was the EGR solenoid. A $40 part from the dealer. Very fun to drive and easy to to long trips in. I drive it 100 miles round trip everyday. I average about 28.5 mpg.

Favorite Features

V6 engine power, manual transmission, low seating position

Suggested Improvements

Add a turbo! Make it lighter. 3250 lbs is a little hefty for a car this size. I guess it doesn't compare to the 3600 lbs the new one is though.
