So I was out last night with my Pops, and we decided to go check out the new Eclipse, just for fun. So we went in, talked to the sales manager (my old boss) and he threw us the keys to a titanium grey GT-V6 6-Speed. So, the good: - Comfy seats, nice bolsters. - Looks pretty hot, 18" rims and 245/45/18 tires help. - Wide stance. - Rockford Fosgate Stereo was killer. - Under the hood looked really nice, valve cover is red. - KILLER exhaust note. No word of a lie, sounds like a V12 Ferrari. - Shifter is in a good place, dash layed out well. Now, the BAD: - This car is HUGE!!!! - FWD - 3500lbs. - Wider than a Ford Explorer. - Dash looks cheap and is covered in crappy plastic. - 240lbs. TQ gets you going slow in a hurry. TONS of torque, but still a high 14- second car....yet another new car me and my B16 hatch dont have to worry about. - Tight suspension didn't make up for the weight....this car is BIG and HEAVY around turns. - The stance is about 1 foot too high...looks like a monster truck. - You cannot take it through a car wash.....my mechanic friend Rob (Mitsu Mechanic) told me that when I asked how the car was. The design of the rims is just so, that when you go through a wash, it destroys the rims...the tires have one of those rim protectors on them, but thats not where they scratch. - Too expensive for the money. Bank lease rates. So overall...... 6.5/10 Cool looking car, but not a shread of what an Eclipse should be.....Light, Turbo, and AWD.
