I decided it was time for a new car when my 93 Subaru Legacy crapped out. I had intentions on buying a Subaru WRX, but time was an issue so I picked up a 2007 eclipse on the spot. Of course me being a young kid (20) I had to tint the windows and put on a cold air intake (which really does make a difference). But I have had this car for 3 months and have not had an issue at 29,xxx miles. I highly recommend this car, Its a fun car to drive, and its pretty quick for a single over head cam. these cars run a 14.8 in the 1/4 mile and 0-60 in 6.9 seconds. Forget the American gas guzzling pieces of crap, get an import. The variable valve timing (MIVEC) is a great thing.

This is my commuter mobile. It has plenty of power and torque despite it's a 4 cylinder engine. Plenty of interior room for front seats but the rear seats are not for people - just extra storage space. You get a lot of car for its price - style and performance compared to its competitors.

For the price I paid for this car I think it was the best on the market. As far as toys and looks go it is a very very good car. If you are not planning to race around professionally, the performance is good enough for you and the stereo system, design, etc., makes the car look more expensive than it actually is.

This is the first two seater I've ever owned. I had always driven sedans. This car is a good value. Its styling is to my taste and the interior design is well thought out. This car is enjoyable to drive although not a high performance sports car by any measure. I am getting 27 plus miles to the gallon with only 2,000 miles on car so far. I am still adapting to the driver's seat. It took me one month to find a comfortable driving position. Getting used to the passenger side blind spot is no big deal.

I don't understand the poor reviews of this vehicle by the so-called experts. I drove several cars (Mustangs (2), Miatas (2), Honda Civic Si, RX-8, Solstice, Corvettes (2)). While this car is no Corvette (frankly the Corvettes were too much car for me), it is a lot of fun to drive. In fact, given legal speed limits, I would say it allows one to jump on the gas and still remain at reasonable speeds, i.e., you can actually utilize what the car offers. And, I liked it much better than the Honda Civic Si - which all the "experts" rave about. If you're looking for a reasonably priced car, and don't plan on limiting your driving to pushing the car to the max on an oval, it's worth trying.
