decent by hailkingbob on 07/19/2007. Trim: 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS, Owned 1 year.
Pros: great design, handles very well. good gas mileage,
Cons: Good first car, only OK acceleration. Not bad for a 4 Cylinder, but not a mans car... Don't plan on having more than one passenger, no one is going to fit in the back seats...
Overall review: good for newbie or kid...

Black Buzzard: Looks cool, flies great, but nasty habits. by Ben on 06/10/2005. Trim: 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT, Owned 4 years.
Pros: The car is great to drive. Responsive and agile, although a little rough on bumpy streets. After 70,000 miles I haven't had an major drveline issues and it doesn't show any signs of any coming soon. Mechanically (engine and driveline) I'm completely happy with it.
Cons: The paint is horrible. I have the black and, as I have noticed on other black Eclipse's, the sun is eating right through the clearcoat and Mitsubishi won't do anything about it (it started at about 40,000 miles....just out of the factory warranty). Major AC issues. I've had it in twice (under warranty) and this is the 3rd Texas summer in a row it has gone out. Black car + leather seats + no AC + Texas summer = never another Eclipse. Although its a blast to drive, the lack of manufacturer support for obviously shoddy materials will definitely steer me away from another Mitsubishi. Paint issues on a 5 year old car with today's technology is inexcusable.
Overall review: For what I paid for this car I could've gotten a Prelude and known that I'd never have to put a dime into it other than regular scheduled maintenance. That should say it all.

Low miles, Low money =Buy! ; High miles, High money = Dont Buy! by Rafal from Greentown, PA. on 05/19/2004. Trim: 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Its a fairly decent car, mine came with the sun and sound package which offers the sunroof and the Infinity sound system. The audio is not too bad, but could use some more bass and lower tones. Suspension is very good. I zip around sharp turns around 45-50mph. With no squeeling of the tires.
Cons: With the SOHC 4 cylinder, you dont really get much power. If your driving down a two way road, and you need power, you really need to step on the gas to get it going, and you have to wait until the car downshifts in order to get the power you need. 0-60mph is also disapointing. My window motors are not very good, they seem like they are about to die out all the time. . IFor anyone who drives this car in 80-90 degree weather. I suggest you wear shorts and short sleeves because if you turn the AC on, it will take so much of your power away, you will be barely able to make it up steep hills. The AC takes away so much power, its disgusting.
Overall review: Overall, if you get it for a good price then my opinion would be to buy it. If your going to pay 10,000 to 12,000 for it, I would let it pass. You could get a better car for that amount of money. If you like the look, are tall, and dont mind waiting for the power, then this car is for you. Chicks dig it, but the guys know its not worth racing.
