2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


This is my second Eclipse RS, the 1st was a 1999. Unfortunately, I may have to be on to my 3rd. I was hit by an 18-wheeler in the 1st & was hit 2 days ago for the 2nd time in the current. This car is incredible for safety. Despite the fact that I have been hit 3 times, even when the damage was extensive, I walked away. The current one may be totaled, in which case I will go on to a newer model, but my experience with this car leaves me no doubts about it's safety - just the invisible "hit me" sign which appears to come with the ones I've bought. AND, the mileage has been terrific. I avg 27 back & forth to work, and up to 40 on the highway! I LOVE this car!

Best Features

The looks, the fuel economy, & the safety.

Worst Features

It could use a bigger back/side window to make the blind spot smaller. Everyone else complains about the small back seat, but since I don't sit back there, & rarely have riders, I don't particularly care.
