2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2dr Hatchback


Grant it I think this car, looks
beautiful, but being the last "sports"
coupe mitsubishi made they really
should have put a little more effort
into it. The quality of materials that
have been used are very dissapointing,
the glove box that doesn't properly
latch, 6 spoke GT rims bending, and 5
spd transmission problems. These items
were the most of my troubles some
others being acceptable; rear spoiler
blocking to much rear view, cup holder
not allowing to shift, hatch to heavy
for release to function properly.

Best Features

the sound system.

Worst Features

relocate cup holders, since can't shift with a drink in it, higher line spoiler so I can see people behind me without the spoiler blocking 60% of my view. Better quality components, and make it rear wheel drive, lighten the hatch.
