    2008 Mitsubishi Lancer - GTS

    Pros: Combo NAV computer/HDD/Sirius sat radio

    Cons: Engine power output w/ CVT tranny

    Advice: Good buy for commuting, but don't expect to have a blast driving it.

    I owned the 04' Ralliart Lancer before, and traded it in for the 08' as soon as I saw it on the lot. The car is feature packed for the cost, as long as you get the GTS model with the NAV package. The technology keeps you occupied on long drives to work, while the comfort level keeps you happy when you get there. The only downside is that the CVT version of this car feels downright anemic when you step on the gas. It takes it's time to get moving, but once it gets up and running it hums along easily. Would recommend.

    2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse - GT

    Pros: Sleek exterior, heated leather seats, warranty, pickup

    Cons: blind spots but eventually you get used to them if you use your mirrors correctly

    Advice: Hold out for the V6. It's definitley worth it! And hold out for low initial mileage.

    I loved this car the moment my foot slammed on the gas. It takes premium fuel but hopefully that means the engine will stay good longer. I have had mine for about a week now and I love it. I take mine out for rides just for the hell of it. Surprisingly, I enjoy the fact that the car has virtually no backseat cuz then nobody will want to pile in the car. Which is nice for people who don't want to perpetually haul their friends around. Beautiful rear LED lights and cool blue interior, this car is definitley a little rock star for all the attention that it gets. I don't regret buying this car one bit!

    2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse - GS

    Pros: My favorite feature is the color (and the steering wheel controls and sunroof).

    Cons: The lack of leg room in the back seat. Why are seats even there? It makes people want to get in

    Advice: If you're looking for a quiet interior...forget it. The heater and a/c are LOUD.

    Test drove 2007 Eclipse GS on freeway. I loved the smoothness of just cruising, and the thrill of it's accelleration. Blind spots were at first a concern, but once I became used to the mirrors and positioning, blind spots really not a problem. Just position and use your mirrors properly.

    2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder - GS

    Pros: Quick, no fuss automatic and hide-a-way top-down operation

    Cons: Lower gas mileage than expected of 22MPG mixed city/hwy. Mileage has not gotten better with 8000 miles driven so far.

    Advice: Think hard about buying the GT with the larger engine. My smaller GS engine was less expensive and has excellent acceleration without requiring Premium gas

    I have had NO problems with torque steer some have complained about. Car drives perfectly with low road noise for a convertible. I love this drop-top. Sexy styling, easy top-down, AWESOME 650W - 9 speaker stereo, and good trunk space for a convertible. This car ROCKS!!! By the way, blind spots with the top up are normal for convertibles.

    2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder - GS

    Pros: Love the styling, color, fit, finish, mileage, stereo.

    Cons: Steering pulls to left, hot seats, poor turning radius, no light in trunk

    Advice: Test drive the car in the left lane of the freeway and release the wheel, (I didn't do this until after I bought the car), the pulls quite noticably to the left, requires CONSTANT pressure to keep straight.

    I have had the car for only half of the month since I bought it. The rest of the time has been spent diagnosing why the car always pulls to the left, really bad in the left lane and even in the the far right lane. Several the dealer personal have driven the car and agree it pulls left. Test drove 4 other new Eclipses, they all do it. The deal sent me to a frame and alignment specialist. He tried to adjust but concluded there was not enough adjustment and that he could not make the car go straight down the road. The car is very fatiguing to drive. Mitsubishi sent an engineer and agreed on our test drive that it pulls left...engineered that way. Working on a solution but no caster adjustment. May have to return the car. Totally unacceptable as it is. Would Fabric seats do not breath very well, very hot.

    2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse - GT

    Pros: it has to be the radio controls that are mounted on the steering wheel they are so awsome

    Cons: Seats tend to get uncomfortable after about an hour of driving

    Advice: if you dont like attention

    Test drive was amazing, salesman said go ahead and open it up on the freeway... So i opened it up and holy heck this car has really got some power to it, really love how in every gear when you tap the gas it makes your head jerk back.
