Advice: don't waste your money on this!It really bugs me to drive this vehicle. Very unsatisfactory.
Pros: The 'Look'
Cons: When you bring back up the top the windows go down.
Advice: BUY BUY BUY it makes the BMW look like a cheap ride with thousands of dollars less.The 2002 Eclipse Spyder is off the hook. I bought it in Red with black leather interior. I put 18' inch rims with low profile tires on it. The car handles with ease hugs the road like a trooper I have hit 130 MPH and it handles like a Vette. The body of this car is such a beauty that it turns heads everyway I go. But then again I got the florescent lights on the bottom. I also got the Lamborginin doors to boot so the car is off the chain!
Pros: the power of the engine, also the moon roof
Cons: the lumbar seat
Advice: get the sport package, and the disk playerWhen i test drove it, i fell in love with it. it was great!!! alot of power, and smooth ride! i especialy like the sport package!!!!! i am going trade this one in in a few years and get the newest one. I LOVE THIS CAR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pros: can let auto shift or I can shift
Cons: passenger seat is not electric-can't 'autoset' for 2 different drivers
Advice: Have fun with this sports car!I bought a 2002 in Feb this year. I have been very happy with the car - the dealership service needs improvement. I do feel it is rather expensive but then I got ALL the 'goodies'
Pros: The sporty look.
Cons: The blind spots and the lack of passenger seating in the back.
Advice: Make sure this is what you are really looking for before you sign on the dotted line.Overall I like the car but I don't love it. I would not buy another one. I also wish I had gone with the Spider. I traded in a Honda Accord Coupe for the Eclipse. The Accord is by far a better car. I will probably only keep the car for, at the most, 3 years and then trade it in or sell it.
Pros: Fold down seats for added room.
Cons: Black plastic interrior pieces scratch very easy.
Advice: If you have any doubts about the quality, lease it....then you can return it.Very fun to drive!!! It is now 4 months old, and I just passed 12,000 miles.
Pros: The Audio system
Cons: Not enough features
Advice: Cost to much for what it is. Think hard before you get it.Im not sure if it is just my car or the model it self. I have had this car for three months and it sucks. I wish I had got a different one. The brakes squek bad, A/C sucks, and dosent have as much power as I expected. This car cost to much for what I think its worth. Do not consider this car if you plan to have more then two people, because the back seats are so small and has no room for all passengers to feel comfortable. Buy something that will make you happy.
