1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX 2.0 turbo from North America
A high-matiance great-potential traction-addicting speed-pleasing wallet-busting beauty.. GO 1997+
Thought I bought a great car, it was a true gem when purchased and I treat my cars like gold.
57000 miles - passenger wheel bearing
57000 miles - drivers axle
57000 miles - clutch pedal
59000 miles - clutch slave cylinder
60000 miles - AWD transmission clicking (needs rebuild - but still drives OK)
60000 miles - new rear rotors and pads (brakes squeak loud, constantly)
60000 miles - sunroof rattles and would need new tracks to fix, but still works OK.
Little odds and ends over my 97' Honda Civic EX coupe...
Eclipse windows rattle
Eclipse sunroof rattles
Long trips not easy on the body
Seats wear easily
Rattles all over the car in general
The only good thing about this car is the ability to attract attention and go fast (even in the rain the traction is great)
Would I buy again?
I would only if I could have been the first owner back in 1998 when the car came off the lot...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
