2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS 2.4 from North America
I love my very sexy Eclipse
Clutch slave went at 80,000 miles; covered under warranty.
Replaced a bad O2 sensor at 86,000.
New pad at 91,000 miles.
I'm at the shop now replacing the timing belt, water pump, all belts and valve cover gasket. Preventive maintenance.
I love this car! For an RS it's fun to drive, great on gas, and I love the handling.
I love the car so much, I sold my 98 BMW 540, and gave my wife the Eclipse, just so I could purchase a Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder. I've always wanted a convertible, and the Spyder is beautiful in any model year. I will be purchasing my Spyder in 2 weeks; an 05 or 08. I'm test driving the 08 tomorrow.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

(Update) it's been almost two months now since I purchased my 07 Spyder, and though I love my 03 Eclipse, my Spyder is an amazing pleasure to drive, top up or down. The front is more roomier than my 03, it's faster, & when the top is down it feels amazing. Changing out the Rockford Forsgate head unit for the alpine IVE 535HD. It only has 45,000 miles on it. First I've owned 2 of the same model & make at the same time, & plan on buying a third this time; an 05 & V6. Love my Eclipses.
