1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD


As a huge Mustang 5.0 fan of the 80's,
I was frustrated that all three of the
GT's I owned left me on the side of the
road at some point in time, so I bought
a 1992 Eclipse GSX. This car was so
much better in every respect, POWER,
especially since I'm 6'4". My
insurance agent also loved me because
of all the safety features including
the auto seatbelts, ABS and AWD. I
drove this car until 120000 miles, than
traded it in on the 1996 GSX. WOW. I
couldn't imagine my car could be any
better, but I was wrong. You can tell
how great this car is by looking in the
want ads...they are NEVER there.

Best Features

Low center of gravity combined with All- Wheel drive and 210 horsepower (Stock!). Mine came with a CD changer located in the trunk, power sunroof, garage remote made into the visor and more.

Worst Features

You have to know the rear seat are for either children, or your briefcase. After 96, Mits. made a bunch of design flaws, like putting the 3rd brakelight in a box mounted on the rear window. 1996 was the finest year for the Eclipse or the 3000GT.
