Better try something else...


2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


It says it all: built in USA with "some" Japanese parts... Used to have a 1997 and besides absolutely gorgeous, way much better in every way (of course totally manufactured in Japan!) I had to add lots of aftermarket parts to get decent engine performance (even having 0.4 liters more than the '97 model), and is a gas guzzler! Front is very roomy, but back is a pain for guest riders. The dashboard is made of the thinnest and cheapest plastic they found, so every other owner has it cracked, electric problems everywhere, struts and tires won't last more than 60k miles.

Best Features

Front exterior design, sportronic gears whit good automatic tranny (so far), good stereo, not much engine problems.

Worst Features

All electrical parts improvements are a must as dashboard plastic too! More fuel economic and added power, better: paint, tires, struts, electrical windows and better quality of parts all over in general.
