1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2.0 N/A from North America
Economy with style
I've had this car for a month now, and my opinion on the car is it's cheap. A very cheap feeling car; everything is plastic. I hit a bump and it feels like it's going to blow apart.
When I got it, I had to replace the valve cover gasket and the check engine light came on.
The brakes are squeaking and the belts are whining.
Sunroof rattles when you run anything over; it's really annoying.
I bought this car because gas prices are $4 a gallon, so I wanted something efficient.
It's as fast as a tugboat chugging through a tar pit, but at least I'm getting phenomenal gas mileage. I drove 250 miles on 7 gallons of gas, which is pretty impressive.
The car looks awesome too.
Basically this car is a glorified Cavalier; cheap, economic, and slow.
Compared to driving my 1967 Chevelle SS, this car is a dog. If I jam 3 of my friends in it and try to take a hill, forget it, the poor little engine can't handle it. I might as well throw the 4 ways on because we're crawling to the top.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
