"I bought this car 2yrs ago at 138,000 miles on it and the car already had a few mods. It had an AEM Cold Air Intake, Headers, & Performance Exhaust. It also had an ECU tune and that's important because with the "sportstronic" gearbox which has the manual mode, I am able to red line it without the car shifting for me before redline. 1st and 2nd gear pulls are definitely the strongest while 3rd and 4th gear pulls are typically weak. My 0-60 time is anywhere between 7.0 - 6.8 seconds which is pretty good for the price I paid for this car. You cannot find a turbo or supercharger for this car easily but if you are satisfied with bolt-ons you can expect to get a few gains outta this 3.0L. The most reliable car I ever had as I've only had to change the fuel pump since I got it. However be careful for engines that have the dreadful "lifter ticks" as it can get louder over time and become an expensive fix."

Great car great buy!

Overall the car is a good car. It looks good and handles good. I have had no problems with either the engine or drive train. My three negatives, one because of space available between the seat, roof and steering wheel it can be a little difficult for driver to enter. Second engineering design has turn signal blocked by steering wheel.(move light or change steering wheel design). Last this summer two bad paint spots appeared. One between sun roof and back window, the second between trunk and rear window.

I'm a women in my late 40s and this is the first car I ever got to pick out brand new and buy just because I liked it. I've had it now over two years and I love it. I still smile every time I see it in the driveway. It runs great and is very fun to drive. My only complaint is that shortly after I bought it, I bumped into a pole (too low to see at my son's baseball field) and it creased the bumper. I thought for a hit that light, it should have not shown any damage but it did. So I think the body is not very forgiving. Still wouldn't want anything else, it's a fun car.

I am very pleased with my Eclipse. Though, this is the second one I've owned since 2001. The car extremey fun to drive and not something that becomes burdensome after a short while. The leather seating is comfortable, and the interior is roomy enough for the driver and passenger. I don't consider this car a true "Sports Car" by definition, but I would call it a "Sporty" vehicle. It has enough power and torque to get you where you're going as fast as you want, but don't expect to race your neighbor's flashy Nissan 350Z. Mitsubishi has definately upped their build quality since the '90's. This Eclipse feels solid and is extremely reliable. The clutch on the 5-speed models is very forgiving and easy to drive.

Sporty & Powerful (V6)

My 2005 Mitsubishi Eclipse GTS is fun to drive, especially during warm weather with the sunroof open. It is as powerful as many of the V8s were several years ago. Its price wasn't too bad for a sports car. The cost of insurance is kind of high though.

Awesome!

We have only had our Eclipse since Feb 2005....so far we love it! We are in our 40's and this car has a way of making you feel 20 years younger. With the sunroof open, and the whole day ahead of us.......we are young again. Our Eclipse is Pearl White, and we put a black bra on the front, I truely think it's the sharpest looking car in our city.

Okay - it's only been 2 months but I also own a 2003 Maxima (Which I love) and this car rides BETTER and is more fun to drive! Not as quick but oh so close...Both cars have Goodyear Eagles. Unlike on the Maxima, they are very sticky on GTS- even in the rain. This is a tight car. It gets lots of compliments! Will post review after one year and winter in New York City. I Love this car so far. I intentionally purchased a 2005 model, the 2006 model looks too wierd for me.

Bought my Eclipse 3 months ago and love it. Looks like a Ferarri, but more affordable, and easy on the gas. Could've used a bigger engine for more torque, but is a lot of fun to drive with the 4 cyl. I love this car, best one I've ever owned and has a great warranty and service agreement. Handles great, and comes flying out of corners like a bat outta hell!

I recently purchased a used 2000 Eclipse GT. I love it. It runs amazing and is the perfect car for me. It is stylish among being very resourceful. I wouldn't own any other car. I am 100% satisfied with its performance this far. It hasn't given me any problems. As far as I can tell it is going to be the best car I own.

I've always been a Mitsubishi fan and I really wish they still made the 3000GT- that was one hell of a car. I've had my Eclipse for less than six months and for a sports car, it survived the winter with no problems. Mitsubishi offers one of the best warranties around, so when you're a broke college student like me, what's not to like about that? :)

This is my first Mitsubishi. It is a 2005 Eclipse. I feel that it handles great, especially on the corners. The ride is smooth. I find it hard to see what is around me though, whether I am trying to change lanes or back out of a parking space. I also have found the stereo system to be one of the worst I have owned in a car. For the price, a better system would have been expected.

WOW!

Had a Galant for two years. Traded it in for the Eclipse. Has the same 2.4l engine as the Galant. Comfortable seats, good gas milage, pleasant handling characteristics, surprising amount of cargo space with the rear seats folded down. Looks sporty, but is more a 'Mom and Pop' 2-door coupe. Sensible 'Midlife chrisis' car for relatively short money.

This is my 2nd Eclipse and is the Remix Edition. Eclipses handle very well, are quick, reliable and fun to drive. Drove the first one 150K+ miles/9 years. It never left me stranded. The 2005 seems even better built and the warranty is excellent. The remix edition came with a great option package for the money. Anyone buying an Eclipse won't be disappointed. For a female driver it is a perfect comfort fit size wise. The interior seems to be better put together than the previous body style was. Buyers should understand that with any Eclipse, they will have to handle the scheduled maintenance/parts replacement tasks very responsibly or the car definitely lets you know its time.

A lot of car for a little less money

I walked into showroom after seeing the car I wanted, sat down and the Eclipse caught my eye. I had to have fun looking car for little money. I took it for test rive and knew right away it was me. It gets good gas mileage, pretty good giddy up and go for a 4 cylinder. I am very happy and feel like a kid again.

I love my eclipse

Was looking for a sporty looking (mid- life crises?) car and found it in the Mitsubishi Eclipse. Haven't won the Powerball yet, so the Ferrari is still a dream. This car handles well with the rack & pinion steering and though it won't beat a vette off the line, it looks like it could.
