Best Looks for your Money
Pros: The beautiful side profile and blue lit interior
Cons: the rear view which comes from the exterior shape and stylingEveryone old or young and male or female compliments the look of an Eclipse. In 3 years very few problems, all minor issues under warranty by the manufacturer. Also for a sporty car you can haul alot with the seats folded down. Get one for yourself.
Pros: 3.8 V6 with MIVEC
Cons: it takes premium gasI love this car, very fun to drive. I never get tired of it.
Pros: color- Sunset Pearl
Cons: can't see well out of the backGreat car! Sporty and fun!
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.
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!
