not quite as good as the 1995-1999 turbo

2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2dr Hatchback


The first thing Mitsubishi needs to do
is rethink the quality of materials in
the interior. The leather feels cheap,
i lotion it at least once a month and
the passenger seat is drying and
cracking already.The interior design
however is a big step up from the 2nd
generation. The black paint sucks! It
looks like crap already, despite
getting waxed once a month.The sunroof
motor won't open and close the sunroof
all the way sometimes. The glove box
door pops open when the car is jolted.

Best Features

The new styled interior is nice, and the room in the back seat is very spacious. The v6, so far (65,000 miles),has been very reliable. The shifter has a much shorter throw. The sound system is alot better than the offering in the 95-99's.

Worst Features

First off, they need to fix all the damn rattles in the interior body panels. Then find a better quality leather. And lastly offer it with the 4g63 4 cylinder turbo front drive or all wheel drive motor/drivetrain.
