Pros: "Fun to drive! Has a back seat."

Cons: "Back seat is for stuff, not people."

"We purchased this car used for our 30th Anniversary present to ourselves. It has been a great warm weather vehicle to travel in. It has a back seat, but when the top is down, it's not comfortable to sit in as it's very windy and you can't hear a thing back there. The back is great however, for your cooler and camera. It has been great fun!"

Half-a-million miles with original engine!

"This is an UPDATE to a review I left on 12.11.11. I still own my 2000 Eclipse GT which is now 16 years old (I purchased in Dec 1999). My silver Eclipse is automatic transmission with 3.0L V6 engine. The odometer just turned over 500,000 miles with the original engine and very little maintenance (click on pic to see), and it still looks great! I have changed the timing belt only once in 16 years and had only one tune-up. I get the oil changed every 10,000-20,000 miles (clearly I'm bad at following recommended maintenance schedules). I changed the radiator myself at about 480,000 miles which was super easy (I'm not a mechanic. I looked up how to do it online). It still runs great though a few minor problems (small oil leak, AC not cooling great, lifts no longer hold hatchback open) which is expected after 16 years and half-a-million miles. Still runs great whether in summer heat or extreme blizzards (WY/CO). I will be sad when my "Silver Horse" stops running."

"I bought my 2003 Eclipse new. I have really enjoyed this car. Great for road trips and just getting around town. It has never given me a bit of trouble. I have had to replace the battery once in all the years I have owned it. Hate to get rid of it, but I need something with a little more room, and something with a little higher clearance."

"Great little car. I loved it so much I drove it for 210,000 miles and it's still running great. A/C lasted all this time with no repairs or re-charging then died at 210,000 miles. No major repairs, replaced the chain twice. Regular oil changes at 4,000 to 7,000 miles. Replaced headlights often but that was it! It just keeps running. Pretty good gas mileage: 25 around town and 31 on the highway. Back seats fold down so you get a great trunk space. Back seats are tiny and not very easy to get into and not much leg room. Wonderful commute car."
