Loved This Car

This car has been mine for over 15 years. It was purchased at 31,000 miles and now has 157,000. Many parts needed to be replaced over the years, but is still zooms around. It has also survived two boys and now in the hands of the last girl. I bought another one, a 2008, as a result.

Loved that car

Sporty and handled like a dream. Hugged the road. Drove it off the lot with 7 miles on it. My test drive miles.

Eclipse Spyder: Stylish and Fun to Drive

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.

Fun runner

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.

MOST BANG FOR THE BUCK

This car is so amazing! There is so much you can do with it! Make sure you dont get the turbo though! GREAT ON GAS AND GREAT FOR SUMMER AND WINTER DRIVING! IF YOU FIND ONE OF THESE GET IT!

Disapointment

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.

We loved ours!!!

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!

Great Fun Car To Drive

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.
