2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2dr Hatchback


Bought this car brand new almost 10 years ago! Mileage is 94,498. It's been good to me even though I have not always been so good to it. Have had no mechanical issues,except leak and battery. Performed all scheduled mx over the years. Had an oil pan leak last year--changed the gasket and good-to-go now. Have driven it USA cross country numerous times, and all over Europe as well. I have lived in many climates, cold, wet, hot, dry. 3500ft and it has been awesome in all. Heat and A/C work like champs! A/C cools immediately in 115+ temps! It has even been in storage for 1 yr while in Korea and sat outside for my numerous 4-6 month desert deployments. Hence the low miles/many long trips.

Best Features

Style, comfort, price, has held up very well for exterior and interior. A/C is awesome. Carries a lot of junk for long-cross country traveling. Plenty of leg room for the front--but not meant for passengers.

Worst Features

Trunk latch sticks (since year 2), moon roof needs a little push to pop up (since year 6). Stereo speakers stink (1st speaker went out year 4, now they all sound junky, just haven't replaced yet). Needs better MPG.
