2005 Lancer Ralliart Rocks!
Pros: Short throw manual coupled with the very strong engine.
Cons: I'm not much for the color yellow, but I bought it for how it drives.Got this used, with 82k miles on it already. Everything was in tip top condition. Have a short throw manual, and one of the best transmissions I've driven. Engine is very strong. Ride is not as soft due to the low profile tires, but it's not awful. Get a lot of compliments on it, especially from the younger crowd. Excellent buy!
just right vehicle
Cons: power windowIt was my first time when I bought this car. I just passed my DMV test and I put up a down payment w/o me having any knowledge about cars. And being a used car that not everything was reported there were some hitches. I wish I knew then what I know now, maybe things would have been better and I would have been happy.
Best looking coupe for the dollar
Pros: Night time Interior blue lighting
Cons: Rear ward visibiltyIf you love the Audi TT and do not want to spend all that cash, get an Eclipse. The sound system is top notch, gets great mileage, and has excellent warranty. After 43,000 miles, have yet to experience a single problem. Every day receive compliments on the appearance and shiny paint.
Cons: backrestHas never failed me so far. Long as maintenace are kept within schedule, this vehicle will return the favor in performance.
Bought it just for the LOOK!
Pros: Solar color with Rear wing spoiler
Cons: The digital reading in the Instrument Cluster shows km/h which does not make sense when other has miles as unitI picked Eclipse over Scion tC for the better body look. Both cars were about the same after $3k cash rebate from Mitsubishi. Not use to the cloth seat and manual seat adjustments and road noises compare with my previous Lexus GS300 but it is acceptable as a weekend FUN car. I noticed the car has to work hard when making uphill when seated with 3 peoples. My review maybe too harsh since this is the first car I bought that cost less than $40k. I like it BEST as a $20k car.
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!
