2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

I purchased my 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse
GT brand new. It has been a nightmare
since almost the first day. I have
replaced the wheeel 5 times.(one wheel
2
times) here have also been problems
with the rotors, the clutch, the A/C,
the lights, and starter, severe rust,
and a few more problems. I tried to
trade it in but after 50 months of
payments, the trade in was still less
than what I owed. Also, the parts are
skyrocket high - $500 for a headlight,
$500 for a muffler, $600 for a tune-up,
$600 to replace the timing belt, etc.
I would not recommend this car.

Review

It's been a very expensive car to have,
even if i do like it. It's broken down
on me from atleast 4 major mechanical
problems, from a new engine to a new
transmission, 2 clutches, altenator
broke down the next morning when i took
it off the lot. It was a new car with
only 26 miles on it too. Only the
engine and altenator were covered with
the warranty, everything else was out
of pocket, even car rentals which
lasted up to 1 month. My out of pocket
cost would be about 6,500. I wouldn't
recommend any mitsubishi, service from
all areas was equally as bad. The
minute you pay them, they forget who
you are and ignore any of your other
concerns.


Best Features

I did love the sporty look and the sporty feel of it on curves.


Worst Features

Major mechanical improvement.

Review

I didn't set out to buy this car, was
sort of conned into it by a boyfriend,
then stuck with it when he didn't buy
it off of me like he said he would.
When I moved to Vermont I thought no
way this car would last one winter.
Now I'm on my third winter. I put on
studded snow tires and this car
handles better than a 4x4. People are
surprised when I tell them. Sure it
still can't handle deep snow, but
roads are usually plowed, so it's not
a problem. It's amazing how much you
can fit in the hatch.


Best Features

I saw some reviews that complain of the cars pick-up. I disagree. I think the car has excellent pickup. And I can cruise up these Vermont mountain hills at 65mph, no problem. Perhaps it is the 5 speed transmission that helps.


Worst Features

More head room in the back seats. Of course that would change the look of the car.
