About Mitsubishi Eclipse

After more than two decades on the market and four generations, 2012 marks the final year for the Mitsubishi Eclipse coupe and Spyder (convertible). While this 4-seater once stood out for boasting high-performance features like a turbocharged engine and all-wheel drive at a reasonable price, in recent years the Eclipse has become a merely "sporty" front-wheel-drive car that favors the comfort side of the equation to attract a broader range of buyers. Although the 2012 Mitsubishi Eclipse boasts curvaceous looks, a low starting price and a powerful V6 engine option, it lags rivals like the Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S, Chevrolet Camaro, Kia Forte Koup, Honda Civic Si and Hyundai Genesis coupe when it comes to powertrain options, refinement and performance.

"I bought my Eclipse in 2008, when I was 21. It is paid off now and I can't even think about getting a new one. The Eclipse is fun, sporty, pretty, comfy, and perfect for me! It has never failed me, it is great in winter, despite everyone who told me not to buy it because of that reason. The good old Eclipse PLOWS through the snow (I have exceptional tires on her though) I am 5'1", female, and it fits perfect for me. fun inside. Everyone who gets into my car thinks it looks like a space ship! LOL. It is comfy except for if anyone over 5' 8" looks like donky kong on Mario brothers racing. haha! The back seat isn't really made for anyone to sit there for long periods of time. I really like the seats fold down so that I can fit stuff in the hatch back. It is amazing what you can fit in this little ride! I also have to note that even though I have top notch tires on it, it SCREAMS on the highway. I have to crank the music to hear it because the car is so loud on the highway. Otherwise, she is reliable, beautiful, and fun! I will keep her til she dies!"

"The Spyder places itself in a paradox. It has a backseat that is only adequate for small people, making it a poor 2 2, but a great roadster. The ride and performance is sporty for a 2007 offering. The appointments on this car are geared towards the utilitarian sports crowd with a few options that give a hint towards the luxury side. The best attribute is the rear styling. I love the rear of this car. The front styling is boring, but certainly not an eyesore. Overall, I am still impressed by the looks of this machine. Some of the short comings: Turning radius Tiny rear window Requires premium gas"

"The car runs great since I have owned it. Very smooth and the factory Potenza Tires lasted me a long time. I'm actually still running on the original 2 fronts and only had to replace the rears with Falkin Federal Z912. Very comfortable and still starts up like it was brand new. Even though I get a code that pops up every now and then, it is only because of my aftermarket Injen cold air intake that I have installed. I'm running full synthetic and it makes a world of a difference. For the price and reliability, this car is great. Its my second Eclipse. I used to own a 2004 GT."
