2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse SE-V6 2dr Hatchback (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


I used to have a 98' Eclipse GS, lasted 11 years so I decided to trade it in for a 08. I have never been happier with my car, it's stylish enough for me and affordable, gets good gas mileage in my opinion, and is a smooth ride and yes I'll admit I've had it at its max 155 on a interstate, it rides very smooth even at that speed. If only it didn't have so much weight in it. 3550 lbs is a lot for a sports car and makes cornering devastating on your tires unless you take them extremely slow. Corning can use some work but even my last Eclipse turned like a Semi-truck so I'm used to it. All in all, I love my car and it attracts attention.

Best Features

Stock sound system, smooth ride, sleek design, comfortable seats, interior lights at night pleasant on the eyes.

Worst Features

No back seat room, WEIGHT! You especially feel it in cornering and accelerating, Turning radius, Navigation would be a wonderful feature. Stock radio should be able to hook up with an I-Pod as well.
