A great looking car, but a money pit
Clutch throw out bearing started to rattle at 34000 miles. It was taken to dealer where they said it was not a problem. Popping in right front started occuring at about 36000, just after warranty expired. It was taken to dealer where they said they fixed it. Popping still existed so it was taken back, they then said they didn't know what was causing it. Took car to another Mitsu dealer, they said popping was a bad strut and my clutch was bad. Also my sunroof had began to get stuck and not close all the way. I took it in for that and they said they fixed it. All they did was put grease on it, that didn't work, so now I just don't use the sunroof. With 78000 miles on it I finally had to replace the clutch, it was slipping badly. Car drives fine, but it it still hard to get into gear especially when cold. Also my dash board has two cracks in it, I guess from the heat and sun. But should the dashboard on a car that's only 4 years old crack, I think not! Other the numerous rattles, the car drives fine.
2000 Eclipse has a lot of problems Mitsubishi should be ashamed of and address. I had a 98 Eclipse and never had a single problem.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
