The 2G Turbo Eclipse is the best car you can buy in its class
The rear hatch storage cover broke. That is the carpeted cover that lifts up when you open the hatch. The clip on the edge broke. Other that that, NOTHING!
This car was pretty quick stock. If you do a few of the bolt-on mods that can easily be found on the Internet, this car gets REAL fast. I am not a professional mechanic. I do not have a lift or any great amount of tools. I was able to follow the instructions that came with most of the parts. Nothing to it, really.
The car is still nice and quiet. When you pull up next to that nice police officer at the lights, he will never know the car just ran low 12's at E-town. The only noise you may notice is a little road noise. This went away as soon as I got rid of the lousy tires that came with the car.
The only thing you need to think about is the back seat. This car is a 2 passenger car. That back seat is only there so you have a place to throw your coat.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
