2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The car has excellent acceleration for a 4 cylinder. The suspension is stiff but yet smooth. There is plenty of room in the trunk for many items. The back seat is a bit cramped, but there is plenty of room up front.


Best Features

I really enjoy the child seat anchor points. It allows me to take my nieces and nephews for a ride. The 400 watt Infinity stereo has a beautiful sound quality.


Worst Features

The car needed to return the gst and gsx models. I really wish it had awd. The Infinity stereo should have come with a subwooofer.

2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I purchased my Eclipse a year ago and I have loved every minute of owning it. It is a very reliable car and a lot of fun to drive. It drives and handles very well. I love the appearance, inside and out. I would not give this car up for any other car out there. The gas mileage is good for a sports car and I have had no problems with this car.


Best Features

sleek look, moonroof

2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse GTS 2dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I just got the GTS, 5-speed about 2 months ago. A little late maybe. But it's what I could afford. I think this car is very solid and runs great. As long as you keep up on your oil changes, and put premium in it like the owners manual suggests. The first thing I noticed because I immediately drove it on the highway was it takes a while to find a comfortable adjustment on your seat in conjunction with using the clutch as well as sitting for prolonged periods of times. My back hurt for about a week in beginning to drive it. It's fast though, for sure. This car packs a punch! I haven't had it long enough to really even encounter mechanical problems... *knock on wood*.


Best Features

Gas Mileage-I get 26/31! (no joke) And I've only had it two months. I'm sure I will get more in the future. Steering wheel controls are nice, looks, 6-CD changer, compass/outside temp, rear wiper.


Worst Features

Better turning radius, clutch is weird...maybe mine just needs to be adjusted.

2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I never cared for this body style at 1st, but since I had credit problems in the past I wasn't able to get into a newer Eclipse. I have owned this car since Feb 29th 2008 and let it be known that this car is pretty sweet. The drive is nice, power for a 4 cylinder is tight. It's no 6, but gas prices these days makes this a more a advantage. I love to mod cars and the aftermarket has plenty to go with this car. Eat your heart out boy and girls this car is for REAL.


Best Features

Style, after owning it its been nice to stare at. Interior looks good, as a driver the seat feels like its securing you in. small, compact, nice ride, gas tank is large


Worst Features

backseat does not exist, some angles of viewing are less enjoyable at 1st, trunk storage is limited as with any compact 2-door,
