2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Worst car in the world!! Bought it with 62,000 miles and it is the worst. So uncomfortable, so noisy, so many rattle, make horrible grinding noises, engine is ok, but not powerful enough, all of these cars have cracked dashes that make all sorts of noises. IT IS SO TERRIBLE!!!!! Never buy this car. OH YA and it LEAKES Water From Stupid A/C. Worst car ever!!!!!!! I can not express this enough!! DONT BUY!

Review

transmissions are good until they go I just had my transmission rebuilt with Labor $3000 engine is expensive if you have an oil leak the labor is so expensive...although I bought this car for my son... and still have to put a new top on it car has 17000 miles on it I bought it at 166966 . the Repair cost and transmission engine work add another $4000 as a car bought used I sunk more money into repair it then whats its worth..

Review

I BOUGHT ONE 6 MONTHS AGO...The review asks what shoppers should know about this car.? Well if you are considering buying a spyder...!!! Do it.. kicking car that is top notch racer... pedal to the metal. No more to be said. Parts are cheap and car is easy to work on. I feel blessed. We say this car stays in the family. replacing parts are easy, I'm at 160 + and haven't had to replace anything. This car is badddd!!!! They won't make a car like this again, I got mine at $2000 blue book because a small 1x2 unnoticeable slightly paint difference patch on hood. no big deal...with no motor / issues which is amazing, I am on here only to tell good people go go go! This is ticket to good car. Every review talks about the dash board being cracked.... whatever? Mine isn't thank God, but big deal.. the car rocks in every other aspect. It's the nicest car I've ever had at40 yrs old now and get compliments every day. If u like driving fast. I do. It's a contender with all new vehicle out there. And sounds like a jet landing when the motor slows down/ trans shifts. VByea people. no joke.

Review

This convertible handles and drives awesome. Has a decent punch and looks fantastic. Super stylish and comfortable interior (for front passengers) with two-toned leather it doesn't get any better for the price!

Review

Sweet. There's not much else that can be said. You can switch to manual and blast around slow moving vehicles at nearly 140 miles an hour.

The G's pin your head to the head rest.

Thank goodness that the Eagles are rated for 149 mph.


Best Features

I love the ability to rapidly switch from automatic to manual assault.


Worst Features

Don't stop making this car. I will buy one for the rest of my life, so help me God.
