- Rare and unique, great value, different and eye catching looks, sporty performance
- Heavy, poor rear visibility, turn radius, big engine should put out more power
Purchased As Used
Being that I worked at Mitsubishi, I may have an affinity for the brand, but Mitsu really does build great cars! I wish Mitsu was more appreciated and had a higher profile.
I really like my 07 Spyder GT!! It gets looks and positive comments everywhere I go! Mine is the ultra red pearl with black top, plus I modified it with 19" wheels, lowered it, MagnaFlow exhaust, Injen intake, and factory aero kit (manly mods lol). Looks and sounds sweet, and the girls love it! Interior is good, if a bit bland (I'm dressing it up with carbon trim). Great looking front seats that are comfortable. It is a rare and unique car, not many built esp. with the 6 spd manual like mine. And now that Mitsu is ending Eclipse production, it's even more rare now.
But it is very heavy at 3600 lbs, and the big 3.8 V6 should be putting out more hp to move that weight around. But still goes pretty good. Handling is good for a heavy front driver. Backing up is hazardous with the major blind spots, but that's to be expected in a convertible.
Overall I love the car!...read morehide

- Excellent performance when it is not in the shop. Looks great on the back of a tow truck
- On the back of a tow truck often
Our 2007 Eclipse Spyder GT has "eaten" its timing belt twice within 8000 miles. Both times required an extensive engine rebuild...about 40 days in the shop the first time...still waiting to get the car back from it "blowing up" again 2 weeks ago.
I would be extremely cautious about buying this car. Be prepared to deal with plenty of maintenence issues, extremely poor customer service from Mitsubishi, and lots and lots of heartache....read morehide

- GREAT stereo, easy-working AUTOMATIC top, AWESOME gas milage w. cruise cntrl, GORGEOUS body style
- brakes squeal sometimes and large turning radius
This would make my 3rd and best Mitusbishi Eclipse I have owned. I traded my 2002 silver Spyder for a Triple Black fully decked, all the bells and whistles 2007 GT Spyder that happened to be the first in New Mexico back in early Feb 2006. I must say I enjoy all the gawking, head-turning, and compliments my car gets on a daily basis - people refer to it as the "black suited 'Spyder-Man" car". By the way, you drivers who complain about blind spots, try turning your side view mirrors all the way out - I know you want to look at those beautiful curvaceous sculpted hips of your car but trust me, "turn your mirrors OUT so you can see the road as well as all those envious jealous drivers trying to catch up to you....read morehide

- Great design; great warranty; comfortable for size
- Tire size allow for easy scrapes on expensive rims; trunk doesn't have ease of access; basics missin
Requires most expensive gas-
Rims scrape easily due to tire size exposing rim and rims you've never scraped may be scraped easily. They are very expensive to replace so beware.
Some basics on dash not available.
Back seat comfortable only for small children maybe.
Compartments not well designed-small items can get stuck in any compartment....read morehide

- Looks and Sounds Great. Good Radio. Good monthly payments with the financing.
- Guzzles the gas. Needs a bigger Sub.
I bought this car 3weeks ago and love it. Its so nice to put the top down and listen to the engine roar, plus I added the Injen clod air intake sytem which gives it some extra HP and deep engine sound, especially if you punch the accelerator. Which brings me to the con of using too much gas, partly the engine's fault, partly due to its hard to resist jamming your foot on the floor. The radio is loud and clear, plus has an indash 6-disc changer, but could use a larger subwoofer. Still not bad for FACTORY!! The special APR offered when I purchased it makes it the best car for the money. I can't wait to afford some 19" for it!!!...read morehide

- SEXY Car inside & out! Tricked out straight from off the lot.
- Blind spots -- solved by adding mini convex mirrors.
I love everything about this car. Performance, looks, handling, sound. Especially love the 2-tone copper leather/suede interior! What's not to love!? I highly recommend adding stick-on adjustable mini convex mirrors to solve the as-expected limited rear quarter side view/blind spots, as pretty much all convertibles have this issue due to the lack of rear quarter windows in the rag-top. (With these little mirrors, I can now back into a parking spot and actually SEE the lines! And the adjustable ones I got actually match and look stock.)
While not the most fuel-efficient car (it IS a performance car after all), it goes like stink and is super fun to drive!
The kids don't even complain about the tight back seat -- the Fosgate subwoofer and stares they get from all their friends more than makes up for any discomfort!...read morehide

- Steller good looks both in and out, great sporty handling, great performance
- It's a convertible, so, when the top is up - rearward vision is limited.
Best value for a convertible under $35,000. I got a loaded GT, with premium option package, sportronic automatic trans and aero kit, as well as the "Sunset pearlescent" exterior color - WOW!!
I looked at a lot of other convertibles: BMW 3 series, Audi A4, Chrysler PT Cruiser and Crossfire, Pontiac G6, Pontiac Solstice/Saturn Sky, Miata, Honda S2000, etc. THis is the best of that bunch!!!...read morehide

- sleek design, definitely a head turner, great sound system.
- paint chips off and plastic parts scratch easily.
This car, in my opinion, was designed for fun with class. Anyone suffering from low self esteem, defnitely should own one.What catches your eye with this one is the design: the rounded back, the spoiler, the clear headlights fog lights and LED tail lights, and the less than 20 sec retractable roof (ample time before the lights turn green). Back seats are designed for smaller people( like kids) or an extra space if cargo does not fit in the trunk. Sound system is definitely a killer. With the roof down and the bass thumpin', you got your instant beach party DJ. On the roads, other cars have to stop or don't try to surpass my speed 'coz they needed time to stare.
What I have discovered is that the rooftop compartment can serve as an extra storage for small items. Just be careful not retract the top when items are in there. The radio controllers behind the steering wheel can be modified to be paddle shifters, too.
I have owned a black spyder for about a year now. So far, the engine has been running pretty smooth, and growls when you want to....read morehide
