2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We were looking for a convertible to leave at our lake house and bought the Spyder. Its been a nice surprise and great fun to drive. It looks great in black and get lots of compliments. Money well spent.
Update: The car is still doing well. We enjoy driving it and are planning on keeping it for a long time.
Second Update: still enjoying the car with no issues at all.

2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This car is a blast... and a real head-turner.  It's probably the most under rated/reported  sports car in this price range.  I wanted the V6 because the car's weight seemed to justify the beefier engine.  This baby along with the manual 6speed can really push you into your seat when accelerating through the gears.  Much more power and speed then I anticipated... but great Fun!

Since summer the top is always down and the sound system rocks.  Hey this is what having a convertible sports car is all about.  I love it!

2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

The only negative aspects of the car are indeed the poor rear and side visibility pointed out by others when the top is up and the poor quality of the interior plastic that marks quite easily. The car is so far totally reliable and I had excellent service at the dealer for the normal warranty schedule.


Worst Features

Quality of inside plastic. Light in the trunk.

Review

Just traded a Miata for a 2008 with 9,000k. I agree with the purists: the Spyder is not a real sports car (front-wheel drive pretty much closes the argument on that). But it has good looks, great interior, room to spare in driving position and very good performance with the V6 6 speed manual transmission and all this in better than average comfort. The car also made sense budget-wise. I feel I have the best of both worlds: a car that offers sports-like performance and looks with more room and comfort than a lot of more expensive two seaters. Good-looking, but with brains! A word for the torque issue: real, but only if you really push hard the revs, otherwise OK. Mine is triple-black. Love it


Best Features

Easy automatic top-down, quality of top,good insulation against noise when up, less wind factor than expected when top-down, fit and finish better than average, good driving position, exhaust noise just loud enough. Great looks.


Worst Features

Few more inches for back-seat leg room. More trunk space. Better interior door design: electric windows buttons are in conflict with the door handle trying to reach it and the "map" storage room at the bottom is so small it's a joke.
