2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

OK, I love the car's design and it's fun to drive, but I got the manual transmission for the fun of the drive. I know how to drive a stick as I grew up doing so. At 4,200 miles my clutch decided to go out along with all the components associated. Mitsubishi decided that it was aparrently my fault, not that it might be the design (which I had a Nascar tech tell me was going to be a problem three days after I got it, during an interview for school). Anyway I forked out almost $1,000 and that's after I got a price break because I knew a maintenace person at the dealer. Any way they fixed it. Two days later it was back in the shop. The flywheel was making a loud noise and in neutral my clutch is burning. I rate the transmission pack a 2.

Favorite Features

The Sound and Sun pack.

Suggested Improvements

The transmission needs a major redesign,.
