This is an amazing car, I call it the poor mans porche because it has the looks and speed of porches but is affordable. I haven't had any issues with it other than a few minor ones. Its a fast beautiful car, it does't have alot of space but that is easy to live with.

Love the eclipse!

This is my second eclipse. My first one was a 2006 four cylinder. Unfortunately it was totaled in an accident. I missed it so much I went and got a 2007 GT. LOVE IT! The power and handling is amazing. People are always surprised with my takeoff speed. The Rockford fosgate stock system sounds amazing. Fun car to drive and always gets compliments!

I bought my 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT used from a dealership in which the one owner of the car worked there. I bought it in 2011 with 80,400 miles on it. It's now almost 2015 with a tad bit over 108,000 miles and I've haven't had any issue with it. I've forgot to do oil changes thousands of miles overdue. It's started in nine degree weather fine. I've done over 100mph plenty of times and it was fine. I've been cars price range of $3K all the way to $280k and mine was the best! Yay Mitusbishi!

Awesome car!

This is my second car after my 02 chevy malibu. Wow! I love it! I average about 27 mpg. I recently took a 3,000 mile trip and this car was awesome! It handles corners amazingly, however, it's not as comfortable as a sedan on long trips (I was expecting it) but it wasn't too terrible. Backseat is very small. The eclipse is a two seater car with backseats. I was hesitant to get the automatic, but the sportstronic transmission is actually a lot of fun. I can't say enough good things about this car and it's certainly a head turner! I always get people trying to race me. The 4 cyl. certainly has more than enough power to get you off the starting line. I love it!

So much fun

I've had this car now for 3 1/2 years, got it with 64,000 miles on the odometer. it now sits just above 102,000 miles and has never let me down. I'm in the military and have moved state to state for years now. I have never had to replace a part in the engine; other than the normal stuff. recently i have begun to upgrade some parts of the engine and she still keeps on trucking taking what ever i throw at her. (dirt trail riding, a little bit of puddle crossing , and alot of track time) All in all i love this car. my first wife as I call her.

I decided it was time for a new car when my 93 Subaru Legacy crapped out. I had intentions on buying a Subaru WRX, but time was an issue so I picked up a 2007 eclipse on the spot. Of course me being a young kid (20) I had to tint the windows and put on a cold air intake (which really does make a difference). But I have had this car for 3 months and have not had an issue at 29,xxx miles. I highly recommend this car, Its a fun car to drive, and its pretty quick for a single over head cam. these cars run a 14.8 in the 1/4 mile and 0-60 in 6.9 seconds. Forget the American gas guzzling pieces of crap, get an import. The variable valve timing (MIVEC) is a great thing.

Great value for money

Reliability: This is the third Mitsubishi in my family, and I knew this was going to be a very reliable vehicle as its predecessors were, we still own the 2002 Galant and totaled another Eclipse. Fuel economy: I average about 25 mpg on daily commutes and 30.5 mpg highway. Comfort: It is a great ride for two, especially on long journeys. Rear passenger needs to be less than average height to be ok. Practicality: The trunk is big enough to easily fit any shopping and with folding rear seats it is huge. Handling: It accelerates as fast as any other 4 cylinder, cruses effortlessly on highway speeds, and easily gets over 100+ mph. Elderly people may find suspension a bit stiff.

Buy one, it's worth it!

I'm a mature woman and love this car but young at heart! It handles very well in all weather conditions, I was mostly impressed as to how it plowed right through the snow and did so well on icy roads. My previous car was heavier but didn't handle well with icy conditions as it seemed to hydroplane, but not my eclipse. I got used to driving with the mirrors more and had no problems seeing other vehicles. Have no fear if you're considering purchasing an Eclipse.

Came from Honda's and Acura's so this was somewhat of a let down as far as build quality goes - interior has some rattles - brakes squeaked at first - paint quality is terrible - clear coat is coming off already on my bumper. Exterior design is great except for the hideous wheel well gap you can fit a small body into - what's the deal with Mitsu and their big wheel wells on eclipses?? As of right now, so long as I don't have any major issues and she doesn't leave me stranded, I'm happy. Going forward though, I'm gonna stick with what I know and that's Honda.

I love this CAR!!!!

I love this car it is wonderful. Stylish, fast, and just great. The only problem is they don't tell you how fast it depreciates. I bought it new and it's not worth a quarter of what I am still paying. So I do recommend buying a used or older year.

The negatives on this vehicle are interior space. Hardly any back seat. Not good for extremely tall people. I am 6'4" and fit very snugly. Worst is severe blind spots. Very low to the ground. Handles very well. Average fuel economy for 4 cyl. Decent acceleration/power. Always been reliable. Speaker in trunk eliminates some storage space.

I will not buy another Mitsubishi

The 2007 eclipse has 2 problems: some of the models sunroofs do not open all the way (mine does not) and my air conditioner has not worked properly and the dealership does not resolve my issue, only makes excuses. I will not buy another Mitsubishi; their engineers do a poor job in my opinion and that of the service rep I spoke with. BEWARE!

I traded my 07 Spyder GT for this black 07 GT coupe back in April and have no regrets. I have the sun & sound pkg so I still have some open air. The hatchback has come in handy with our recent move, you can fit a lot in there. Love the exhaust note, comfort & all the looks I get. I have averaged 23 MPG for city driving which is the same as my wife's 04 Spyder so no complaints there. I don't "get on it" much because then you will see the needle fall. I find it funny that the critics hate this car and all of the consumers love it. I'll believe an actual owner over a magazine any day. I expect it will do well in our Ohio snow as did my spyder. Great car and highly recommend!!!

Best Sports/Touring Coupe 4 the $. Not a Performance Car, but it does have decent performance/economy for a 4 cyl 162 HP Engine & the 5speed transmission is smooth. Average 25 city & highest MPG was 34 Hwy w/o using A/C. I usually trade once a year, but I'm keeping this one. It has a few limitations, but for your $ investment, you can't go wrong if you are looking for a great touring coupe with a super warranty & features. I've owned a Honda Si, Nissan's, Toyota's, Corvettes, and for the money spent, this is the one I enjoy the most. Test drive one, & you will want one also. Enjoy your highways of life more, in an Eclipse. : ) You get more then you pay for in a Eclipse.

This car is just awesome. So much fun to drive. Dash lights are beautiful at night. I don't check my gas mileage cause the car is made to drive fast. I make road trips often and the car is very comfortable. Sound system is excellent. Love the rear fold down seats. Two sets of golf clubs and luggage will fit great. I had a wind deflector installed on the sunrooof and the wind noise with the roof open is gone. I have the orange one and it is such a head turner. When driving alone, I recline the rear of the passenger seat and it helps with the blind spot. This allows for a better view out of the smaller side rear window. I suggest you buy one today.

Bought the car back in November. Traded in a 07 Mustang for it and I'm glad I did. The car is pretty peppy for an inline 4 and gets great gas mileage (I usually averaged about 30 mpg). It has a cool design and interesting interior. It's also pretty comfortable as well. I did, however, wreck mine about 3 weeks ago and totaled it. It held up very well but the airbags didn't deploy, strangely enough. Overall, I liked the car and would recommend it for someone who is looking for an affordable, sporty car that gets good gas mileage.

This car is amazing. I owned a Cadillac before, and thought I would be disappointed, but its a lot of fun and drives great. I have been rearended by a heavy duty truck, and hit a deer at 50 mph - not a single scratch on the car. It's very reliable and takes a lot of abuse. It's the best car I have ever owned. I would highly suggest it to anyone. It's definitely a headturner, and unique, which were big pluses for me.

I traded in a Dodge Dakota because I wanted a sportier vehicle. I did my research and after comparing the Mustang, RX-8, Civic-Si, and Eclipse, it was my favorite. I have had it about a month now and it is the best car I have ever owned. It's flashy, fast, hauls my golf clubs, and makes mundane trips to work a lot more exciting. It is an excellent medium between a full on performance car and a livable, daily commuting or touring car. The stereo is ridiculous. I didn't know you could get a stereo that sounds that good from the factory!

Phenomenal Car!

Bought mine used with 17,000 miles on it. I was just looking for an everyday runner, and this car was available. Simply unbelievable. I never even looked at Mitsubishi before, but it's true that they've thought of everything. I have the convertible GT V6, and this baby is a runner, alright. Previous owner put a carbon fiber hood on her, 20-inch black spoke wheels, an air induction system to increase her horsepower, and all the options! Wow. She's amazing! The ride is incredible, the look is amazing, and the officer who pulled up alongside of me to tell me I was going too fast even gave me a thumbs up and a wave! And my golf clubs fit in the trunk! You won't be disappointed!

I looked for a very long time to get this car. I bought it with the Rockford stereo, which was a must, and complete with all the options. I was reluctant at first to buy any car with a 4 cylinder, but was very satisfied after driving mine. It did not take long to figure out that it has an amazing ride, as well as, all the power and handling anyone could ask for. This will not be my last Mitsubishi I promise you that.

I purchased this car brand new off the lot in 2006. I have been driving it for two years now and would not give it up for the world. I love the comfort, sportiness, and sexiness it gives me on the road. The power is excellent for a four cylinder, although I do notice a sluggish start when running the A/C on high from a dead stop. Long distance drives have not left me with the "numb butt" feeling. That was a plus. I average about 28-30 mpg in town, if driving casually. If I romp on it, I can almost see my gas gauge move! Driver tendencies depend on gas mileage. I love the interior, although the driver side door could have an elbow rest a little higher. Absolutely great car!

Overall the car is gorgeous and reliable. It's heavy and built solid like a tank, which makes me feel safe. The sound system is FANTASTIC! It's fun to drive and I always get lots of looks when I'm out and about in it. Luckily, I'm short so the car offers me lots of room. I hauled a 32 inch 100 lb tv in the trunk 220 miles to my brothers and had room left over for my luggage and dvd player. It's all in how you pack your cargo.

Purchased as a first car for my daughter but I'm driving it more than she. Every time I drive it I'm more impressed. Today I drove a combination of interstate and U.S. Rt 1 from Richmond, VA to D.C. in heavy downpours and lots of standing water with my wife and daughter onboard and felt in control at all times. Always looking for an excuse to drive. Peppy, sporty ride and handling, great braking, tight steering, just overall fun to drive. Lots of compliments on styling with the sunset color. Weird because I was looking for BMWs when my daughter talked me into driving it. The price was $500 more than Kelley Blue Book TRADE IN with the balance of a 6 year, 60,000 mile warranty.

Although I haven't bought the car yet, I have to say the two days I test drove it, I was so impressed. I currently own a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am and have always loved the sportier cars and have to say the Eclipse is pretty amazing. The get up and go is awesome, def. more torque than my grand am and the sound system is pretty awesome too. I'm getting the green/silver/blue color and think it's a very classy choice.

From the day I bought the car, I just liked it, not loved it. I didn't buy it for the gas mileage, so I wasn't expecting good mileage. The power was fun (manual makes it better), but I notice all the other things like the blind spot, rough ride and road noise. To top it off, when I took the car in for a shimmy while braking, I was told that it is normal for the rotors to have to be resurfaced every 10,000 miles. So have fun with the car, just don't use the brakes.

I bought this car used with only 15,000 miles on it. Used to be a rental. I absolutely love the body. The interior is great, mostly at night with the blue interior lights. The car draws lots of attention, thank God this comes standard with security. Surprised to find such power in a 4 cylinder. I test drove a 6 cylinder, the extra pick up was better but not enough to make me want it. The 6 also requires premium gas and when purchasing this, gas was definitely an issue. The gas mileage is okay if you're not running and gunning. I love the way the engine sounds and the handling is pretty good. I like the fact that there is more room than in the older models.

You must get one!

This is my commuter mobile. It has plenty of power and torque despite it's a 4 cylinder engine. Plenty of interior room for front seats but the rear seats are not for people - just extra storage space. You get a lot of car for its price - style and performance compared to its competitors.

This is my 4th eclipse, Mitsubishi knows what they are doing. They make the vast improvements with the vehicle years. This model pretty much takes the best of every body style and puts it into a powerful, reliable, well controlled, tank. This car is for the price the best buy for the buck.

Most fun for your money!

I love this car. It's not as sporty as G1/G2 Eclipses, though it traded some of its sportiness to a true everyday comfort and that was a square deal. It's still fun to drive either it's mountain Colorado roads, everyday commute or 2000 miles vacation trip to Yellowstone. Ride is smooth but you have all the control through the corners you can expect from a n Eclipse. V6 gives more than enough power for civic roads, thanks Mitsubishi for standard stability control! In its price range Eclipse GT has no close competitors, you'll get most for your money.

Keep on reading... dont give up!

For the price I paid for this car I think it was the best on the market. As far as toys and looks go it is a very very good car. If you are not planning to race around professionally, the performance is good enough for you and the stereo system, design, etc., makes the car look more expensive than it actually is.

This is my first Eclipse and I love it. I get so many comments from so many people and it feels good. I wish the car was lighter and had dual overhead cams instead of a single because I'm 24 and I like to have a lot of power, but with modifications it could be a power house. Over all I love the car, the feel of it on the road, the inspirated racing seats, the blue gauges astound me every time. This is a very fun car to drive and fun to look at, its a real eye catcher.

This is a classy car. Eclipse SE 2.4ltr automatic (black). The 18" alloy wheels on this beautifully wide coupe make a driver feel secure, especially in bad driving conditions, as well as make you look good while driving... lol! Very smooth ride. I've only had this vehicle for a few days. Although I researched my options with other makes and models prior to this decision, I must admit, I'm very pleased!

What a car

Some people don't like this car because it's a V6 and front wheel drive, but it doesn't matter what they think when I'm passing Mustangs with their V8s. This car doesn't only look fast, it can back it up. If you don't regularly drive more than 1 person you should be fine, otherwise it might be an issue with the back legroom being absent. But the interior is great, displays all blue at night, has sunroof, 6 disc rockford phosgate system, displays the temp, cd track and time. I'm very pleased with this car.

I love the color that I got. The car is pretty quick for a GS. I like the style of the body, and most definitely love the interior light. I love the sub they included and plan on putting in my own.

Love absolutely everything about the 2007 Eclipse GT. The design is the best. It is extremely fun to drive. It sticks to the road like glue. It is very good in winter driving. This car is absolutely comfortable and FUN to drive.

The 2007 Eclipse is an awesome ride. It has the styling of a small speedster, the beauty of a classic sports hatchback, and the get up and goes of a roadster. The 6-cyl. 24 valve, 263 HP engine, provide plenty of power to rock the road. Do not hesitate to take it for long drives. The car hugs the road with my all season Toyo Proxes FZ-4. Its ride is very comfortable

Took Me a Month to Adapt

This is the first two seater I've ever owned. I had always driven sedans. This car is a good value. Its styling is to my taste and the interior design is well thought out. This car is enjoyable to drive although not a high performance sports car by any measure. I am getting 27 plus miles to the gallon with only 2,000 miles on car so far. I am still adapting to the driver's seat. It took me one month to find a comfortable driving position. Getting used to the passenger side blind spot is no big deal.
