2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS 2dr Hatchback


I have really enjoyed the comfort of
the car for the long haul, the
appreciative comments and glances from
passer-by and friends. The performance
is perfect for me, it's reassuring -
not freaky while still fun. The car
also is a tank, I T-boned a vehicle at
40 and walked away. Car was
rebuildable. The final note is that
the interior needs tightened a bit for
world class refinement and a bit more
firmness in the front suspension to
keep the wheels planted in wet
weather... otherwise a great companion.

Best Features

The cruise control for it's quick and accurate response to adjustments. It never lugs trying to adjust 3 mph. Awesome for keeping pace with mixed traffic. Fuel Economy - I drive assertively with a full intake upgrade and still average 27 mpg most weeks.

Worst Features

Firmer engine mounts. The stocks are just a tad soft, allowing for wheel hop in rain conditions. Tighter fit 'n' finish on the interior. I tighten down a panel every so often it seems now that the car has accumulated mileage.
