1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T Turbo 2dr Hatchback


I currently have 198,000 miles on my GST, mostly freeway driving. Overall, I had good experience with the car. I went through 4 sets of tires and changed & resurfaced the front brakes 4 times. Lots of oil changes. The front rotors do get wrapped easily. Major expense was replacing the manual transmission and clutch at 140K. Recently, my car developed another problem. It stalls when the engine is hot and cannot be restarted until the engine cools off. Thus, I have to tow it for repairs. I am hoping that it is nothing major.

Best Features

Great Style, Turbo engine. Good gas mileage. I averaged 29 MPG.

Worst Features

Bring back the turbo.
