This car is more comfortable than my 2004 spyder and rides smoother. It has more power and the gas mileage is incredible. The best I've gotten on the highway so far is 31 mpg. The worst I've seen in the city was 21 and I was moving pretty quick. I just wish they made more kits for it.
This car is a play toy for the wife and me. Got the automatic for her, but no regrets. Between the V6 and the Sportronic mode I can have my fun. Love the looks, power, handling and that awesome stereo. Plenty of room in the front seats. The back seat is for kids only, but hey it's a convertible. It's not supposed to be practical. A great fun car to cruise the scenic backroads with. The sunset pearlescent paint and the body style really gets attention. This is the most expensive car we have ever bought. It has all the options.
Looks, performance, stereo system.
Improve rear visibility with the top up. Make the back window bigger. Make the V6 less thirsty. We have averaged around 20 mpg in mixed use driving.
Fifth consecutive Eclipse, by far the best. Hard to believe actually! So fast, and even with the 18" wheels, rides very well in our rough NJ pavement. Cuts corners like a pro, shift throws are short, braking is strong. Fuel mileage is so-so compared to my last GT 5-speed, but it makes up for it in sheer power. Thanks Mitsu for finally installilng a REAL sound system, heated seats, a windscreen, auto climate control, and an automatic boot cover. Those few things totally transform the car and make it feel much more expensive than it actually is. Love this car!
Heated seats. Auto climate control. Windscreen. Looks, handling, performance.
Telescoping steering wheel would be nice. Automate the convertible top latches for truely one-touch operation. Shifter knob is a little tall and balky, but just a little bit.
The six speed manual performes smoothly. Torque is impressive in all gears. Convertible top operates like magic. Rear seating is very limited. Makes my daily commute to work a pleasure. The lines of the car are distinctive and will get you second looks. Little torque steering from front wheel drive.
The 260 horse power engine has great torque. The convertible top operations is an engineering marvel.
Visibility to rear. Braking distance should be improved.
Have had the car for nearly a month, but half of the time has been at the dealer with steering problems. The car pulls to the left, pulls really hard in the left lane of a 5 lane freeway and as you move to the right, to the far right lane, still pulls left. Has been test driven by several dealer service people including a Mitsubishi engineer and a frame shop alignment specialist. The cars, as it turns out is designed that way, there is no correction. The car is very fatiguing to drive. The fabric seats are also very hot, don't breath. May have to return the car. Test drove 5 of the cars, they all do it and the engineer agrees. Hard to believe but they have designed cars that pull left.
Love the style, color is great... stereo is fantastic. Love everything about the car except the seats and the pulling to the left.
Fabric seats that breathe, and a car that goes down the road straight. Light in the trunk. Compass and outdoor temperature indicator. Rear backing up sensors. Better turning radius.
