Goodbye Eclipse by An MSN Autos Consumer on 03/04/2012. Trim: 2012 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS Sport Spyder, Owned 1 year.
Pros: The Eclipse has more room than the Miata for a weekend getaway. Its more a cruse around car but I think still fun to drive. I get a nice car comment every time I'm out in it. I have a 2010 model and I just spent two thousand dollars for custom wheels and tires. I wouldn't have done that if I didn't like the car. Of course I would rather have a more expensive sports car but for the money its just fine. I don't think all the bad reviews the car has gotten are warranted. My friend has a Miata and his wife likes my Eclipse more. She won't even ride in his Miata!
Overall review: Even with all the bad reviews, I'm still happy with my Eclipse and I know I will have many good times with it.

2012 Mits Eclipse by An MSN Autos Consumer on 01/12/2013. Trim: 2012 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS.
Pros: i have the 4cyl and I couldn't believe how quick this car is, yet it stops on a dime. I commute 60+miles a day and i look forward driving this car more and more. My wife and kids love it too. I am over 6foot tall so its basically a three seater as no one can sit behind me. THe stereo is top notch and control are perfectly placed.
Overall review: already stated

The Somewhat Sporty Coupe by Matt from Kansas on 10/27/2012. Owned 1 year.
Pros: If you're a normal person, this vehicle would be fine for you. More than enough power if you're not one of those whom has a need for speed. (Me) Handles great and has more room than most low end sports cars.
Cons: 265 HP was not enough for me. Especially when I'm getting 20 MPG on a good day. I got a tune and went to stage 5. If you're interested in having a TRULY fast Eclipse, be prepared to spend a good $20,000 to $25,000 extra for performance modifications. That sounds like a hefty chunk of change, but the finished product will blow you away. When I'm cruising down the highway and I get a Ferrari or Porsche pulling up next to me, It's the best feeling to walk away from them. I'm running 792 HP on the dyno now with an 80mm Garrett turbo and a racing grade anti-lag system. Keep in mind you'll want to upgrade to a racing flywheel/transmission as well to avoid damaging the stock tranny.
Overall review: If you're a normal person, this car is somewhat sporty and great all around. If you're a competitive driver, be ready to have $20k - $25k to shell out.
