2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT V6 from North America
With bad paint, car catching fire and the brakes not working, it is just not a well built car
Black paint faded very badly after only 1 year of owning car; Mitsubishi said that there was nothing they could do, and it is not covered under the warranty.
Brakes kept going out; dealer could not find the problem, so about 10% of the time when I come up to a stop, the brakes would not work the first time I pressed them... I would have to pump them to get the car to stop. Rotors wore out after 2000 miles were on car.
Battery cable caught fire when trying to start the car. Luckily I saw the smoke and found the flame (could have been VERY bad). I drove this car like any other car I have owned, I was never rough with it.
I did like how the car drove and how it looked (for the first year anyway), but the car was too dangerous to drive, so I had to trade it in.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
