Most reliable vehicle i have ever owned

GTS 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

I bought my 03' spyder gts in Nov. 2011 with 127k miles at a used lot. I am writing this on 5/22/2014. I love this vehicle. So much. I have the 5 speed manual tranny, and this thing has some JUICE, to the point where, despite having been through 2 fender benders with no repairs other than cosmetics, still beats the faster 2007+ mustangs and ricer hondas/nissans/scions. Oh, my 03 eclipse is completely 100% totally stock. It now has 178k miles and not only runs brand spankin' new but still beats new cars in accel. contests. Despire neglecting oil changes, being through 2 wrecks, taking it off roading, putting it through hell on the street, this is the most reliable vehicle i have ever owned.

Lots O' Fun Behind the Wheel

Since buying this auto I have been totally impressed by its performance, the low cost of upkeep and the WOW factor, everyone loves the style, ride and the handling (for a car at this price more fun can't be had!). Now mind you this isn't a 300GT V/R4 (I owned one of those!! YOW!) or the fantastic EVO, it still holds it's own! There are also plenty of after market parts for it so personalizing it is a fun way to go! In conclusion if you're in the market for a cool auto, that's inexpensive to upkeep, handles well in the snow (I live in Wisconsin!!) and gives you that open road freedom this is the auto for you!

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.

We bought this car because we were looking for a convertible in a reasonable price range. My wife and I have found this vehicle to meet and exceed all of our expectations. Fun to drive, sleek exterior, comfortable, SUPER gas mileage (33 mpg @80 mph Hwy. miles in the MOUNTAINS of Tennessee)

I rolled 130,000 miles this week much to my dismay and pleasure. Nothing but standard maintenance. Had to replace factory brakes with some better ones as the rotors kept warping but since I usually drive 75-80 that may have been my driving habits. NOTHING has broken in the car, paint hasn't held up very well but it isn't rusting so I can't complain. The car is still as fun as the day I bought it. With Sportronic and leather this car is as nice as cars costing twice as much. Also own an Audi TT and if I were shopping tomorrow, I would be at Mitsubishi, not Audi. I feel like it isn't going to be a stretch to get over 200k without anything but maintenance.
