2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This will be my 4th Mitsubishi and I've said it before and I'll say it again...they are highly under rated!
I have no complaints about any of them.
I had two 30000GTs, then I bought an 06 Elipse that I loved and now I will be picking up my new 2007 GT convertible and I can't wait!
It only has 25K miles on it so it's practically new.
Its red with black leather and 6speed!
I'm going to have alot of fun this summer!!!!

I know already from reading all the reviews that this will be another great car from Mitsubishi!

2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS 2dr Convertible (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

It's been a really fun car for 6000 miles in 2 months. From Phoenix to Ohio and back, it was great. Not quite enough leg support for longer journeys for tall people, but a small price. I've read multiple reviews here, and those with certain issues should read their owner's manual. It specifically conveys to NOT clean the car via an automated car wash. It specifically conveys that if the CD changer "overheats", it WILL shut down to protect the system. These are really incidentals in the grand scheme. I do wish that I didn't have to take it to a dealer to change the gear box fluid of my 5 speed. I've never done that in my life for cars that went 200K, but it is what it is.


Best Features

Top Down, good sound system, heated seats, just a ball to drive, handling is fantastic (curved off ramp taken at 45 mph and glued to the road)


Worst Features

readjust torque or give a bit more horse in the 2.4 so the AC doesn't lug the motor so much, better rear view on the convertible, a little deeper seat for taller drivers, and as everyone else has indicated, a left hand arm rest. Also, better turning circle in smaller spaces

So much fun to drive! Definitely has a blind spot without the top down. To me driving this car in sunny weather is like having a little bit of vacation right on your local streets!


Best Features

Convertible top! Stereo! Heated seats!

Alleviate blind spot

2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS 2dr Convertible (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Just purchased this 3 weeks ago, having a blast driving it! The only complaint is the blind spot with the top up, but I am just driving it in the summer! I think it is a great car and reasonably priced compared to other convertibles!


Best Features

The radio, and the great ease of putting top down and the engine immobilizer!


Worst Features

Bigger windshield in back to help with blind spots

Review

I bought this spyder new and now have only 23,000 on it. Not much has gone wrong yet. There is a heat shield that rattles because of the Ohio winters and the salt on the roads corroded it loose. It handles quite well for a 4cyl. but wish I had gotten the 6. Gas mileage is good, not great, but what do you want for 170 horses. Needs a place to put your left arm when it is not on the wheel. CD changer would not play some CDs when it got very hot outside, then it fixed its self when it cooled down. Top is well designed and works very fast. Top material seems to be high quality and does not make much noise at highway speeds. Aerodynamics with top down are very good.


Best Features

Heated seats, Sound system, fast top up and down, fun to drive. Great sound from exhaust.


Worst Features

Left arm resting spot for driver. Decrease blind spots. Sixth gear
