1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX 4G63 2.0 I-4 from North America
A screaming little sleeper, better get AAA just in case
My power steering belt snapped at 117,500 miles.
My ignition module melted at 118,000 miles.
Steering knuckle broke at 119,000 miles.
Balancing shaft belt broke at 119,800 miles, taking the crank shaft position sensor with it.
As of yesterday (6-26-04) it is in-op again from unknown engine problem.
This car is extremely fast and handles like a dream, but so far I have spent more on fixing it than the price of the car ($3,000).
My friend that I bought it from had just put $5,000 into the engine rebuild and new turbo.
Why keep this money pit around? I just love humiliating rich yuppie in the Z06 Corvette, Porsche 911, and the "almighty" Saleen Mustang.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I doubt you 'humiliate' anyone by racing them in your beater. Even if you do manage to edge by a Z06 or 911, in the end, they're driving Z06's and 911's, and you're still driving a p.o.s. DSM.

I have more problems with my eclipse than anybody on this site. So I know everything you are talking about. But no eclipse can beat a porsche or a mustang. Your racing buddies probably couldn't drive their vechile's like they should have.
