1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS Spyder 2.4 from North America
I love my Mitsubishi!
The valves/lashes started tapping at 51k miles (which were supposed to be adjusted at 50k), I was unaware of this and had to have all 16 lashes replaced. Luckily it was all covered under warranty (freebie).
The top is leaky, but well worth it in the summer.
Mitsubishi decal, located on trunk, completely came off with light washing. And new stickers can't be bought in local auto stores.
Alarm has gone psycho quite a few times, only when top is down and doors are locked.
Cigarette light shorts out.
Driver side door speaker crackles.
A small gas tank causes frequent stops for gas.
Excellent bottom end acceleration.
Mid-range torque could be better.
At high speeds, it rides really smooth.
Back seat and trunk are small.
Car has a nice sleek look that grabs your eye.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
