The most important thing is to take care of it. I take mine for regular check-ups and oil changes and inspections, and so far have had no problems. Also, treat it with care and don't slam or swing the doors. Invest in a backup camera.

I love my car, it's very good looking and it has never left me on the side of the road. It's fuel economic and gives me a lot of mileage for one tank. It's stylish and makes a good impression. However there is low visibility when I am backing up. Also some parts are kind of cheaply made and a little flimsy. One time I swung open the door but the hinge or something came right off and now I have no door stopped. The air vents are all broken. I don't know how the previous owner treated it but all the vents are broken, and the front radio speakers don't work. Also the bumper looks badly assembled. It came right off after an accident which I don't think should have happened.

My car has issues! How to get along with a car with multiple issues.

Bought used. Previous owner had rewired new imported headlamps in--however car company lied and said nothing had been done/changed. Vehicle has electrical issues--sometimes fan will/won't work, same with rear defogger. Cannot lock it because alarm will go off for no reason. Sorry I bought it, but cannot afford another one right now.

Eclipse- overall... Not a bad car!

Lots of blind spots due to back windows and being low to ground. Needs more accessories (back up cam, internet capabilities) . Very reliable, handles well. Good on gas, very sharp looking car. Built in subwoofer. Decent stereo system. Nice interior (seats, speedometers look like a race cars) awesome color.
