1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse from North America
Too many problems
Engine had to be replaced.
Transmission had to be replaced.
Several different sensors had to be replaced.
Clear coat on paint was horribly coming off.
Kept misshifting or not shifting at all within it's last 10k miles of life.
Shook at around 70 mph.
I liked the look of the car. I believe the car was horribly abused before my family got the car. In the past 3 years, the car has been having tons of problems. Considering the car was 10 years old and that it might have been driven rough by previous owners, I don't know if that might attribute to it. I think overall the car was only partially reliable. So much money had been put into the car to fix things, it was just ridiculous, so we traded it in for a Hyundai Elantra GT hatchback 2005.
The handling, such as turning isn't very good. You could easily feel any bumps while driving. The driving wasn't smooth at all. It is very cramped in the car. And there was probably more problems than what I mentioned, because it was originally owned by my mom.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
