2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


My Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder has been a fun car. It is a good combination of power and pleasure. It keeps up with the other cars in it's class speed-wise and it just looks cool. People still watch these cars go buy with envy. It has blind spots, but no worse than the other convertibles that I looked at, the Honda S2000 is just as bad. Besides this is only a problem in parking lots, not everyday driving. I love the "manual" automatic transmission. I've had no mechanical problems, fortunately.

Best Features

The convertible top is very high quality. After four years has minimal creaks and rattles, which is pretty amazing. The canvas keeps it's good looks. I couldn't say these things about the pre-owned Mercedes-Benz that I test drove before I bought my Eclipse Spyder. The back seat is poor for passengers, but it makes for extra storage.

Worst Features

Add auto trunk release on the remote. There is a handle at the driver's seat but it doesn't help you when you're carrying packages.
