I haven't seen a better combination of performance, looks, and price than the 09 Eclipse GT. It has more hp than the other cars in it's class, looks better (in my opinion), and in many cases is less expensive than other cars that less to offer.
Lots of torque at low RPM, very quick off the line. 18" 10 spoke wheels standard on GT. Exhaust has a great sound, not as loud and trashy as some aftermarket exhaust, but the hum is enough to turn some heads.
Gas mileage is pretty bad, I'm getting around 14-15 mpg (city). Blind spots, not much visibility out of the rear corner windows, especially if the passenger seat is positioned a certain way. The spoiler that comes on the GT takes up much of your rear view mirror. Cup holders interfere with shifting
