Bought this car in July, and its more fun than a barrel of monkies. Quick, maneuverable, great gas milage. Am selling mine due to a back injury from Viet Nam. Keeps flaring up due the seat design. That has been my only problem Car gets a lot of envious looks.

When it comes to looking for a cheap used AWD Turbo car with power, look no further than for Mitusbishi Eclipse GSX. This car really is worth the value. When it's treated good and cared for, this car will last, all the maintaince should be done as recommended. If you would like this car to be even faster, simple upgrades can make it fly. And since it's a Japanese car, the parts are not that expensive. Overall, this is a awesome car to have. If you happen to come across one, test drive it....

My husband had this car from the time I met him until we started having children last fall. It does better than you would expect in snow and you can't beat it when the weather is nice. Trunk is big enough that we took ours to the beach and for weekend trips. My husband always has the scheduled maint. done, and it was a very reliabe car!

I have a 98 GST Convert. 5 speed manual in which I am going to sell in the spring.I broke my ankle and it bothers me to shift so reluctantly I am selling it. It has only 79,000 miles on it and a new top. It's quick and fun to drive especially in the summer months. I actually get two small golf bags in the trunk.

Eclipse Spyder: Stylish and Fun to Drive

by from Sioux Falls, SD on August 17, 2013

This car is reliable, stylish, and fun to drive. The 2nd generation eclipse had the best exterior styling with the turbo bump on the hood. Reliable and a great investment if well cared for.

The car is designed to go fast but the power given by the engine and chrysler transmission does not do justice to its design and worse of all even with best aftermarket replacement and work done by A-techs the cars performance will only goes down. Ride is not very comfy as it comes with stock suspension system, and with force intakes drivetrain seems to absorb more power then supplying to wheels and electronic system is complete rubish.
