1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD


Bought this used in '98. I had no
idea what a great car I had
purchased. AWD and turbo for a
bargain price. I have mintained this
car very well and could not resist
adding some of the modifications
available. I took it out on to the
road racing track and surprised
Corvettes and RX7 turbo cars. This is
a very special car that unfortunately
Mitsubishi no longer makes. The
Evolution 8 is the only thing close.

Best Features

It has to be the AWD and turbo, but there is so much room under the hatch. This is a great car for road trips - as long as you watch your right foot! It is very easy to find you are going a lot faster than you think you are.

Worst Features

The quality of the leather was very poor. Tanned elephant skin. Changed it out for a full Katskin interior. The front ball joints need to be looked after carefuly. There are some minor faults, but there is nothing like it for the price. I laugh at Porches that cost 100 time what I paid for mine
