This car is great to drive and easy to zip around in!

My car has a lot of "get up and go" to it which I love! The breaks are very sensitive and overall I get around good in this car. My only problem is that I have an oil leak and it causes smoke to rise up from under the hood. Other than that (and the engine light being on for quite some time) I enjoy driving this car. It is comfortable, but not a family car. This car is great for 2 people but once there's more people riding in the car it becomes a hassle to pull the seats up in my opinion.

Some problems with a Mitsubishi eclipse 2003

I have had to replace almost the whole engine after i drove from North Carolina to Michigan; though i have had problems in the past. The alternator was the hardest thing to get because no auto parts store has them because they aren't allowed to have them; so you have to call the dealership and hope they have one and then wait for it to be shipped to you.

It is a dependable, economical car that is sporty and fun to drive.

I bought my used Eclipse convertible in 2004 with about 37,000 on it. It has a 5-speed manual transmission and I love driving with the top down. It has over 156,000 miles on it now and, overall, has been a great car to own. My only complaint is I've had ongoing heating/ac problems that no repair shop has been capable of fixing on a permanent basis.
