2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS 2dr Convertible (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

purchased a repo,initially replcd top,
rear bushings & front bumper, all under
warranty, car has been no problem
since, many highway miles, concerned
with cracked dash and rear front
spoiler has small fracture cracks. No
I haven't hit anything. Think it's a
defect. Cheap car, but it looks good.
Fun to drive on a nice day.


Best Features

Sporty and cheap.


Worst Features

Interior is cheap and very weak dash. Sound system lacking in quality. Like I've stated before...cheap car...cost and quality both cheap

2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Bought new GT Spyder in 6/00 -white
w/tan for my Summer car. It only has
9000 mi on it and I never even took it
in for the free 3000 mi. warranty check
because it works perfectly. Mitsu's get
a bad rap, but just check out the
owner's ratings. The car has
shortcomings but overall, it's a
really good car. The (front) seats are
comfy, and the wind noise is
controlled. I had a good feeling about
it when I bought it and still do. I
don't think it will depreciate as badly
as predicted. Consumer Reports is
bearing this out. I have more squawks
on my '04 Maxima in 4 months than on
the Mitsu. in 4 yrs.


Best Features

Styling, turns alot of heads...stereo, the fact that it's a modern car with all the safety features. It replaced my beloved '62 MGA which I had for 27 yrs. I do not compare the cars; the Mitsu will never be a classic, but it's modern, safe and cool, and a 300 mi. trip is a joy.


Worst Features

Turn circle, (but then my 04 Maxima is as bad) interior lighting, vis. with top up, (and down). I am tiring of the rear view...front and side views are still great.

Review

This is the second spyder I have had
and over all they have been very good
cars..the problems were taken by the
dealer and I will probabley buy another
one..I got this one new and have 38000
miles on it. only problem was the top
stained and threads around the window
rotted, but even at 38000 miles they
replaced the top..I love the style and
I have found they hold value very well..
haven,t addressed the gas cap peeling
yet and it is bubbling up now...


Best Features

I just like everything about the car...I get attached to my cars and take excellent care of them and keep them about 6 years average and this car has maintained the good look I want...and I got real good traid in value from the last one and I have 3 more years on this one...


Worst Features

That gas cap and the top.

Review

In the first two years I have owned
this new vehicle here is what has
broken down.

The horn, headlight hard wiring, the
convertible roof motor, the radio, a
speaker. The headlight hard wirng
needs to be replaced again. I am so
dissapointed.


Best Features

Car looks great at dusk.


Worst Features

This car needs a more meaningful warranty. Mitsubishi only gives a 36000 mile warranty because thats how long it will last and not a mile more.
