BEST CAR EVER OWNED,HAVE HAD MORE THAT 35 VEHICLES OVER THE YEARS, SECOND BEST WAS MY FACTORY ORDERED 1999 MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE SPYDER, WITH THE SMALLER 4 CYL. AUTO TRANSMISSION. ONLY ISSUES WITH ONE WERE NORAL WEAR ON TIRES AND BREAKS. AS WITH EVERY VEHICLE I HAVE EVER OWNED, ALL RECOMMENDED SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE WAS ALWAYS DONE, FLUID CHANGES ALWAYS BEING DONE USING BEST QUALITY PRODUCTS. PROBLEMS I EXPERIENCED WITH THE CAR AFTER PURCHASE, WERE ALL RELATED TO VEHICL BEING PARKED AND NOT DRIVEN, THAT WILL ACCELERATE SEAL, BEARING AND OTHER MOVING PARTS MUST BE LUBRICATED TO LAST THE LIFE EXPECTANCY. I WAS 3RD OWNER, PREVIOUS DIED AND ESTATE WAS NOT SETTLED IMMEDIATELY.

This coupe was a great fit for me. The interior design wasn't too over done and and the cars performance is amazing. Gas mileage on this car is pretty decent and the inside is spacious. The car does sit a little low but it's a fun little coupe.

My second Spyder, love the handling, performance, great styling, comfortable ride. If required maintenance is done as per mfg. suggestion, will serve it's owner very well. Timing belt change is critical, if neglected, and it breaks, very expensive engine rebuild will be required.

Where to start. I bought my eclipse January 2011. Ive got the fully loaded 01 GT V6. This car will pull very hard in first gear if you use sport tronic. handles well around the on ramps and things like that. Also I like highway driving because the car has good power at the top end and I have gotten up to 140 more than once. I personally don't like city driving because the car doesn't absorb bumps well especially if you get low profiles like me. The exterior and interior are nice, Nothing too special in the inside beside power everything, leather, sunroof, sport tronic trans. Good speakers to rock out with the infinity speakers. As far as reliability I think it may have just been mine but trans did go out at 95K miles. Motor mounts have been replace twice. Headlight harness and wiring is very low grade and WILL melt. My radiator cracked also. EGR Valve had some issues and valve cover gasket has been known to leak oil. The issues I named are common and you can check them out on the club3g forum for Eclipse's 2000-2005. I have a love hate relationship with mine. about 70/30. Super fun when shifting manually. Great pull for a small V6. My dealership has pretty good customer service also with lots of coupons on basic maintenance. Car is OK on gas depending how you drive about 21 mixed and about 320miles on a full tank which is only 14 gallons. I ALWAYS use PREMIUM because thats probably keeping the engine running ok. Keep up with regular maintenance and you should be good.
