Wow, I was just about to say I remember test-driving one of these when I came across the engine bay shots. It'* like Mitsubishi can't stop making these engines and finding new cars to put them in! The one I test drove was a 3.8L SOHC with plenty of kick that my sister wanted to buy. I didn't even know they had a 4-banger! I mean, I could have assumed so, but really the Eclipse needs a peppy engine IMHO. How do you like driving it?

Yeah it'* just a lil 4-cylinder. My mom is more into the convertible & great stereo system (hence the big sub in the back seat) then power nowadays. & it'* okay I guess, has a lil bit of kick to it but I'm use to driving my monte with a supercharger in it so obviouslyyy I think it'* slow lol

Invest $10.00 in a California Duster from WalMart.. I dust mine every other day since my wash and the shine lasts for weeks. I hate dust on a black car..
How does the Monty like sharing the garage?
