1993 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS Base 1.8L 4 cylinder from North America
Amazing quality in a fun to drive, gas saving car
So far nothing on my watch has gone wrong, however there are a few things to mention that have been wrong with the car since before I purchased it in August 2014.
The key will not unlock the passenger side door or hatchback, the driver's side window is hard to roll up (manual windows), and the lever to "pop" open the hatchback is very ornery, usually requiring a few lifts to hear a ping sound to unlock it.
The far corner turning signals turn on with the headlights, yet won't work when flipping the lever to signal a turn in traffic (however I think someone may have messed with the wiring before I bought it).
Mechanic says there is one oil valve that is leaking, an easy fix. Considering its age, the engine is in great condition.
I love this car, it has not given me one problem. The A/C runs amazing! YES, the A/C ha ha! All the electronics and dashboard instruments work too.
Overall, for a 21 year old car, it is in fine condition. It's not in perfect condition, but better than some I have seen for its age. I have always been a Mitsubishi fan, my first car at 16 was a 1995 Mitsubishi Mirage, and it was a great car too. This car, while much sportier and more fun to drive, reminds me of my first car.
The looks and feel of this model are awesome, although TBH I would prefer the next model up (1995-1999), but for a $1000 car bought for work primarily, I am extremely thrilled at my purchase, and will have it for a while!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
