Don't Waste Your Money... by nik from Utah on 04/07/2006. Trim: 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS, Owned 10 years.
Pros: I have owned this vehicle and drove it off the lot new. It looks very "sporty" and is nice to look at.
Cons: Well, there are HUGE probelms with this year Eclipse. For starters, there is a faulty head gasket in some models (mine) and Ive had it replace 2 times for oil leaks, each time fixed by Mitz dealers. Also, the engine is very heavy in the front and the brakes wear out very very fast. As of now, I am having to replace the head gasket AND brakes again for over $2,000 which is ridiculous because the car isnt worth much more than that. I would not buy another mitsubishi ever.
Overall review: Overall, I have been unsatisfied with the car itself AND the lack of honest and fair Mitsubishi dealers out there. I had a Galant before this car and it was much better. I am not sure what's wrong with the 1996 Eclipse, but I keep having to fix the same problems over and over and over and dealers aren't willing to take any responsibility for what they do.

Big Bang for the Buck by Stevie G from Kansas City, MO on 09/26/2001. Trim: 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: This is a very fast car with lots of power in any gear. The car is very stable even when you are on bumpy pavement. Mitsubishi's transmission is very smooth and easy to operate even if you're not an expert with manual shifters. Good feel all the way around.
Cons: The ride is a little rough but I guess that is common with most sports cars. The seats are a little hard for a long trip but nothing unbearable.
Overall review: This is an excellent car that holds its resale value very well. If you're looking for speed and good looks, this is the car you want!
