1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD


I bought my Eclipse in June of '97
after graduating from college and have
never regretted the decision. Great
performance from a turbo 4-cylinder
and outstanding winter handling by the
AWD. Unfortunately, I'm selling it
this fall to upgrade to a more family
oriented vehicle. It's too bad that
Mitsubishi stopped making Turbos.

Best Features

The Turbo!!! Easy to reach controls (stereo, climate control) while driving. Fold-down back seats allow some space to haul. Smooth ride for a sports car and comfortable leather. Great Infinity stereo sound quailty.

Worst Features

Rear spoiler took awhile to get use to seeing through the back window. Stock mag rims are of poor quailty (oxidize and bend easily) and cost $275 to replace. Problems with stock cassette/CD player. Back seat...not really!
