1992 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2dr Hatchback


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.
