Awesome Compromise

2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2dr Hatchback (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


I bought my Eclipse used with 17K miles on it. I now have 29K and it has not so much as hiccuped. It's powerful, fun to drive, and I get compliments almost daily. The RF system is AWESOME, best stock system I've ever owned (and there have been many). It's a relatively comfortable ride for a sports car and I've taken it on several long road trips. The backseat is best suited for those under 5'4" but at least it has one. The curb weight gives the car a substantial, safe feel. The stock tires are not as sticky as I'd like in slippery conditions. Probably the main negative point for me is the turning radius. Also, the powerful engine combined with FWD equals major torque steer at times.

Best Features

RF sound system, roomy trunk for a sports coupe, sexy styling, 25mpg (great for so much power).

Worst Features

Do something about the turning radius!! Consider an AWD option.
