Bought the car brand new in Edmonton, AB back in 1990 with 0Km on the car. The car has just rolled over to 400,000Km (Aprox. 250,000 Miles) The car is still wonderful to drive and the exterior styling is although true to its time. Its still a very nice looking car!
Factory Radio, In Canada for 1991 there was a Limited Edition released which came factory with 8 speaker sound system, Cd player and 16 inch Rims.
Wish it didn't have them annoying hide away headlights that no longer work on mine so they have to stay up all the time!
The car is now 17 years old, but still has the guts and get up to smoke mustangs etc. I've had to replace nothing other than a clutch and the hatchback door struts. The car handles like it's on rails. What a joy to own and drive ! And heck it gets great fuel mileage to boot. If you want a really nice car that got some jam under the hood and has the reliability of a locomotive buy one, if you can find one that is.
I love my Eclipse/Talon. Very dependable, awesome power when needed and fantastic gas mileage when just putting to work and back. Great, classic, aggressive sports car lines, yet kind of a sleeper look. The AWD version is perfect in snowy climates and on the big circular freeway on ramps. Handles like a dream! Nice interior for two, although both of my kids have ridden in the back seat many times when they were younger. Hatchback gives plenty of room for groceries or reasonable luggage.
Turbo, AWD, classic sports coupe lines, pop-up headlights, driver's cockpit and handling.
Cup holder, you'll need your girl to hold your beverage.
My Mitsubishi was great for the first three years, but after that it was all downhill. My car had two broken timming belts (the original one at 50,000 miles and the third one at 150,000 miles) and I needed to replace the spark plug wires three times. I hate the crappy automatic belts. It is kind of fun to drive, though is it not so great taking off when the ground is wet. The paint job is terrible. The very few '91 Eclipses that are still running look pretty bad. I tried to maintain my paint but lost the battle after 6 years (my Nissan truck which always slept outside still looks new). My Eclipse has been sitting broken in my garage for the past 4 years.
The outside looks, good cornering, nice gear stick positionv(manual), awesome heater, good mileage, confortable front, and I love the pop up headlights.
Make it cheaper and easier to maintain ($900 timing belt), provide cheaper replacement parts, better hatch shocks, manual front seatbelts, better exterior paint, better reliability, better dealers, make it easier to get in and out of, give it a better sound system, and better front traction
After adding simple upgrades such as upgraded turbo, large intercooler, dropping intake cone to front bumper, ported headers, and a bodykit, this car is menacing and will smoke almost any car and run 11's at the track on 4 slicks.
There are so many but the large stock turbo was great for those looking to get into racing for cheap.
The headers could have been designed for equal length.
