2005 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

"I bought this car 2yrs ago at 138,000 miles on it and the car already had a few mods. It has an AEM Cold Air Intake, Headers, & Performance Exhaust. It also has a tune and that's important because I have the "sportstronic" gearbox which has the manual mode and I am able to red line it. 1st and 2nd gear pulls are definitely the strongest while 3rd and 4th gear pulls are typically weak. My 0-60 time is anywhere between 6.0 - 6.5 seconds which is pretty good for the price I paid for this car. You cannot find a turbo or supercharger for this car anymore but if you are satisfied with bolt-ons you can expect to get alot from this vehicle. I've beaten tons of other modded Mustangs and modded Civics. The most reliable car I ever had as I've only had to change the fuel pump since I got it."

Review

Overall the car is a good car. It looks good and handles good. I have had no problems with either the engine or drive train. My three negatives, one because of space available between the seat, roof and steering wheel it can be a little difficult for driver to enter. Second engineering design has turn signal blocked by steering wheel.(move light or change steering wheel design). Last this summer two bad paint spots appeared. One between sun roof and back window, the second between trunk and rear window.


Best Features

Looks sharp. Ability to handle and move well in traffic. Fun to drive


Worst Features

Fix Paint job, Move turn signal, look at passenger compartment, to ease entry.
