Review

I would highly reccomend this car to
anyone looking for a fun, fast,
reliable car. This would be a great
car for any teen (like me). When I
first drove this car I was in awe at
its performance. I've had this car for
only a month now and nothing has gone
wrong. My only real complaint with
this car is the lack of room for the
rear passengers. It's almost like this
car was supposed to be a two-seater.
As long as you maintain this car, which
happens to be kinda expensive, it'll
last you as long as you want it to.


Best Features

Again, it would have to be the performance. The AWD is especially nice.


Worst Features

I really wouldnt change anything about this car. I only like the car in black, in any other color its pretty ugly.

Review

First things first, if your going to
buy this car make sure you know how to
take care of a turbo sports car. By
that I mean take time to change the oil
atleast every 3000 miles on the dot or
less(it's important for the survival of
the turbo/motor) and do regular
mainenence or else you know, these
things will break down. The weak link
in this vehicle is the transmission.
Just make sure you check before you
buy: 1) if the tranny grinds/sounds
from drive train 2)turbo shaft play(ask
ur mechanic) 3)oil leaks. Again, don't
buy this car unless you know how to
maintain and/or fix a sports car.


Best Features

The turbo 4 cylinder definatly is more then enough 'merge' with traffic. AWD is awesome in the snow.


Worst Features

If I had $2k, i'd have the tranny rebuilt with Misubishi factory upgraded syncros(special gears inside the transmission). An added reminder to cool the car down before turning it off.

Review

This car has been problematic since I
bought it. My eclipse looks gorgeous on
the outside, yet its looks are indeed
deceiving. The automatic transmission
has failed numerous times. (ie: 6
rebuilds and 8 other transmission
failures since its initial purchase)A
head transmission specialist of a local
mitsubishi dealership stated that the
transmission design of the early
nineties eclipses, talons, and lasers
were designed in a manner that is
insufficient at handling the torque
produced by the motor. A trans
specialist of AAMCO transmissions
stated, "these transmissions are a time
bom wiating to explode." This is a
sleek, yet volatile car.
