2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse GTS 2dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

Review

I bought the car new in May '02 and had to replace the factory clutch in Sept of '02. The car now has 53k on it and I have only had to replace the front breaks. No problems since then w/ anything mechanical. But, for essentially a two-seat sports car it could be faster. The seats should also be more supportive and less cushiony. The suspension is noticable soft/bouncy and feels more like you're in a sedan than a sleek hatchback. It also turns like a Mac truck (40+ ft turning radius!) overstear also becomes a problem w/ more spirited driving. Consider the Acura RSX as well if you are considering a Mitsu.

Favorite Features

(get looks all the time) V6, body style/design, sunroof, customer service experience @ dealership

Suggested Improvements

smaller turning radius, improve suspension, AWD, improve gas mileage (17/21 w/93oct!)
