2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Wheel base is poor compared to my Celica. I thought buying a 6 cylinder car would increase my power speed at take off, but my 4 cylinder Celica had much better power. I do like the looks and the comfort, but it has a long way to go to beat Toyota's quality.


Favorite Features

look, feel, and comfort


Suggested Improvements

increase the wheel turning base

2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse GTS 2dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I expected a lot from this car and got nothing. I am so unsatisfied, I can't wait to get rid of it. It's a good car when the roads are dry, but when it rains I lose my traction control and anti lock brakes. I have had problem after problem with this car, the windshield leaks, the whole braking system doesn't work properly and the car makes unknown noises.


Favorite Features

Horsepower


Suggested Improvements

I think the whole brake system needs to be replaced.

2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse GTS 2dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I love to drive my car but it is having an issue and the dealer does not know what's wrong because there are not codes. The good thing is that my warranty is not up till 12/09. It's not a fast car but it's a blast to drive it corners great and has tones of low end power.


Favorite Features

moon roof - audio controls on the steering wheel - 6 disc CD player


Suggested Improvements

AWD

2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Owned this vehicle less than 4 months, and had to spend $800 to repair the condenser. Dealership and manufacturer claimed it is not under warranty as the damanage might be caused by road hazard. Heard someone that had 400 miles had the same bad luck as I did. Just to remind buyers to be wary of this potential problem with the Eclipse as the condenser is poorly protected.


Favorite Features

Looks pretty


Suggested Improvements

Enhance the protection of the condenser on the eclipse

Review

Hello everyone! Hope all is well, my name is Patrick, a college student at the Arts Instutite of Boston. I bought my Mitsubishi GTS this past May. Over all I think its okay. It does need some things....


Favorite Features

Style is great! Fun to drive! Good sound system. Everyone alwayes comments about it to me: "thats an awsome car man!" etc... Has a happy-Go- Lucky look to it, that I personally like!


Suggested Improvements

Power! The car performs okay, howver I personally believe that it looks MUCH meaner then it drives. Needs 250hp. A better sound system. Heated seats? 5 speed auto, and 6 speed manual.
