Perfect Cheap Sports Car

Let me start off with my only complaint. I'm six feet tall, and this car is notoriously small. I find it to be very comfortable, but I've always likes a smaller car versus a spacious cabin. It just makes me feel more in tune with the car when everything is closer to me. The backseat would be uncomfortable for any human over the age of 10. Its incredibly small. But that being my only complaint, I'm totally in love with this model. Everything from the exterior design to the performance of the engine. I recommend this car to anyone who's looking for a sports car thrill without the $20,000 price tag that I believe comparable vehicles come with. Worth every single penny. I'm dreading the day I'll have to move on to a different car. ALSO I live in Chicago weather so I needed something that could handle well with all the snow. This car has a wide axel and my GT (V6) model weighs about 3,600lbs which is plenty to make the handling in snow (in my opinion) a dream. It's a small car, but it won't be sliding around all winter. Also it's a FWD sports car. Love it.

Best Car I Ever Owned

This is my 3rd 4th gen Eclipse and I absolutely love it. These cars make you feel like a million bucks when you drive them. They are unique, sporty, and quick. My first Eclipse was an 06 GS that I used everyday for 10 years with only minor maintenance. I traded for a beautiful Outlander Sport GT. My other two Eclipses are both 11' GT-P's. One is a Spyder and the one I just purchased is a coupe. These cars are awesome. This GT-P coupe has all available options and is a blast to drive. The Rockford Fosgate system is amazing, as usual. Love the sunroof, the color (rave red), leather interior racing-type seats, dual exhaust, fog lights, HID's, and the rear wing spoiler. There is so much to like about this car. It is simple, practical, comfortable and fast. These aren't manufactured anymore, so if you can find a nice one get it. You won't be disappointed.

I own a 2012, 2.4 lite,r GS Coupe with the 5sp. It is a great car. pro: -It looks great from any angle -In real world driving it handles great -Lots of road feel -More than adequate power -Great sounding exhaust -Fantastic front seats -Lots of usable space with the rear seats down. -Very comfortable on the highway at 80mph -Easy car to do 800 miles a day in. -FWD makes it acceptable in snowy conditions -27 mpg in real world driving -Great reliability -Great value as a used car con: -Visibility to the rear quarters. It's a trade off for the styling. Take the time to adjust your mirrors. -The ride is a little choppy and busy on secondary roads. Overall, a fun, reasonably practical, car that will actually have you smiling as you bust on and off ramps on the daily commute. The reliability and gas mileage are bonuses

My 2011 spyder convertible growls, is very responsive for a 4 cyl., and really makes this 72 yr old guy smile. It is winter,but can't wait to put the top down as we will be driving to florida soon. Also bought a plexiglass wind deflector that attaches to the back of the seats and it was only $110. I may add a larger air flow add on to the motor that will increase the horse power by 17hp. They don't make this car any longer, so it may eventually go up in value.

This company has been making engines for close to 100 years, almost indestructible. the features , design and quality cannot be beat by any other maker. The look you get in the car, the sound system, smooth ride, 11 sec top down ,rear seat for extra person, try getting that at Porsche, Mercedes and see what that buys you. the top is the best I have ever had, no leaks , little wind noise....they stop making them so if you can find one in good condition grab it, love it and its my second one in 12 years
