Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder Expert Review

Staff Writer

After six years on the market, the fourth-generation Mitsubishi Eclipse is still trying to pass itself off as a sporty two-door. While the Eclipse has the looks of an athletic, fun-to-drive coupe - especially when equipped with a rear wing and inch alloys - the car doesn't quite deliver in the performance department. Only the GT, with its hp, liter V-6 has any real performance value.

That said, the GS and GS Sport models, both equipped with a hp I-4 can still be fun to drive, though convertible Eclipse models don't have the option of a five-speed manual. Part of that fun comes from a decent chassis and four-wheel independent suspension. Even if that engine isn't terribly quick, the Eclipse's sleek coupe styling will lead people to believe it is. That engine choice also has the benefit of better fuel economy over the V-6, which is rated at a middle-of-the-road 16/24 mpg city/highway.

But after four generations, the Eclipse will take its final bow after , ending production after more than 20 years in the U.S. market. To send the Eclipse off into the sunset, Mitsubishi is launching a special edition SE model, which gets unique graphics, HID headlights, and dark-finished alloy wheels.

Bodystyle: Two-door convertible
Engines: L I-4, L V-6
Transmissions: 4-speed automatic, 5-speed automatic
Models: Eclipse GS Sport, Eclipse SE, Eclipse GT

Mitsubishi's once-respected Eclipse nameplate reaches the end of the line in , and celebrates its more-thanyear history with the addition of a new SE model as a final swan song. The special edition model's initials stand for "Styling Exercise," as the car gets unique Argent SE graphics, dark argent wheel finish, and Kalapana Black side mirrors. The final Eclipse model also receives heated leather seats, a rearview camera, watt audio system, and HID headlights.

Introduced for model year , the fourth-generation Mitsubishi Eclipse today features the same sleek styling it did when it debuted. Though dated, the exterior design still stands out among sporty coupes currently available. The Eclipse Spyder features an elegant profile with the top up, and looks ready for a day of fun in the sun when the soft top is stowed. Adding to the Eclipse's sporty look is a large, trapezoidal front grille and center valance opening, which combine to form a menacing front end look that's reminiscent of the more-potent Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. For , a new SE model offers even sportier styling with Argent SE graphics, dark argent wheel finish, and Kalapana Black side mirrors.

The Eclipse's cabin design is also dated, with bulbous, bloated-looking dashboard and center stack, and a mids-vintage instrument cluster. All Eclipse models get a standard simulated leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, tilt steering wheel, dark gray center audio controls, and split-folding rear seats. Heated front seats are standard on all models except the GS. The GS also misses out on the nine-speaker, watt Rockford Fosgate audio system which is standard on all other models.

The Eclipse's sporty exterior looks are sadly betrayed by mediocre performance. Two engines are offered, including a liter I-4 producing hp and lb-ft of torque, and a liter V-6 producing hp and lb-ft. While the V-6 feels torquey, the results in our testing show it doesn't live up to the once-mighty sport compact's performance reputation. A Mitsubishi Eclipse V-6 model we last tested in accelerated from mph in seconds, with the no-longer-available six-speed manual. While not slow, it's only a slight improvement over some previous turbo models. Two transmissions are available on the convertible, including a five-speed automatic and outdated four-speed automatic. Handling is decent, with a compliant chassis that doesn't mind being tossed through corners. However, our testers reported a lack of steering feel which saps the fun out of any handling capability the car may possess.

All Eclipse models get dual-stage front airbags, front seat-mounted side impact airbags, and front seat curtain airbags as standard. Other safety features like Active Stability Control, Brake Override Logic, an ABS system, and Tire Pressure Monitoring system are also standard. All models except the GS get a standard back-up camera with rearview mirror display.

Mitsubishi Eclipse

Sport compact car that was produced by Mitsubishi Motors

This article is about the sport compact car. For the compact crossover, see Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Motor vehicle

The Mitsubishi Eclipse is a sport compact car that was produced by Mitsubishi in four generations between and [1] A convertible body style was added during the model year.

The first two generations (1G and 2G) share the automobile platform and parts with the rebadgedEagle Talon and Plymouth Lasercaptive imports. They were built during Mitsubishi Motors' close relationship with Chrysler Corporation. Their partnership was known as Diamond-Star Motors (DSM). In Japan, the first two generations were sold at a specific Japanese retail chain called Mitsubishi Car Plaza. (/) The third-generation (3G) shared a redesigned platform with the Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Stratus. During May , the fourth, and final,(/) generation (4G) Eclipse was introduced, replacing the Chrysler platform used in the first three generations with the PS platform.[2]

According to Mitsubishi Motors, the Eclipse was named after an unbeaten 18th-century English racehorse that had won 26 races.[3][4]

The Eclipse was officially sold in Japan, North America, the Middle East, South Korea, the Philippines, Brazil, and China. At the end of August , the final Eclipse rolled off the assembly line, and was auctioned off, the proceeds donated to charity.[5]

In , Mitsubishi resurrected the Eclipse name on a compact crossover vehicle, titled the Eclipse Cross, which debuted at the Geneva Auto Show.

Overview[edit]

Pre-facelift Mitsubishi Eclipse rear

The first generation Mitsubishi Eclipse was marketed as an entry to mid-level four-cylinder sports coupe segment. Four trim levels were available; all were front-wheel drive except the GSX which was all-wheel drive. The GS Turbo and GSX were equipped with turbocharged engines.

The first generation Eclipse underwent minor styling changes during its production; – models have updated sheet metal and are easily distinguishable from earlier model years. The most notable is that the models have pop-up headlights, whereas the latter model years do not. The Eclipse was revised for the model year as the second generation.

Post-facelift Mitsubishi Eclipse

Trim levels[edit]

The Eclipse was available in five trim levels during its first-generation production run. AWD models were not available until halfway through the first model year.

  • Eclipse: Base model equipped with a 92&#;hp (69&#;kW) naturally aspirated &#;L 8-valve SOHC4G37 engine
  • Eclipse GS: Upgraded model with slightly more equipment
  • Eclipse GS DOHC: Upgraded model equipped with a &#;hp (&#;kW) naturally aspirated &#;L valveDOHCMitsubishi Sirius engine; a naturally aspirated variant of the 4G63T engine[Note 1]
  • Eclipse GS DOHC AWD: Equipped with a &#;hp (&#;kW) 4G63 valve naturally aspirated engine (AWD N/A only available in Europe) All were only available with 5-speed manual transmission and without rear limited-slip differential. Sunroof, cruise control, ABS, central locking, and A/C were included.
  • Eclipse GS Turbo: Upgraded model equipped with a –&#;hp (–&#;kW)* turbocharged &#;L valve DOHC 4G63T engine
  • Eclipse GSX: AWD model equipped with a –&#;hp (–&#;kW)* turbocharged &#;L valve DOHC 4G63T engine

*The GS Turbo with a manual transmission was rated at &#;hp, whereas the GSX with a manual transmission was rated at &#;hp (&#;kW). This was for the purpose of offsetting the additional weight of the AWD mechanism (approximately 2, lbs Vs 2, lbs GVW). However, and later years of both turbo models standardized on the hp version 4G63T. The automatic models were rated at &#;hp (&#;kW) due to smaller fuel-injectors and turbocharger.[citation needed]

These models varied significantly in drivetrains and available options, and included some variance in appearance, as higher trim lines added different front and rear fascia panels and surrounding trim, with the GSX model getting a notably different styling package from the others.

Powertrain[edit]

The basic driveline layout of the Eclipse is a transverse-mounted 4-cylinder Mitsubishi 4G37 or 4G63 engine situated on the left-hand side of the car driving an automatic or manual transmission on the right-hand side. AWD models have a different transmission which includes a limited-slip center differential and output shaft for a transfer case, which drives the rear differential (also available as limited-slip) and half-shafts.

There is also a difference between rear axle/rear ends on all-wheel-drive models. early cars have three bolts attaching the axle to the wheel hub. Late – have larger-diameter axles and attach to the hub with bigger, 4-bolt axle cups.

Engines[edit]

The 4G37 and 4G63 engines are gasoline inline-fours. The 4G63 has an iron engine block with an aluminum cylinder head and is equipped with two balance shafts. The turbocharged version of the 4G63 (sometimes referred to as the 4G63T) has a lower compression ratio ( in –, in - , and in the naturally aspirated version) and oil squirters under the pistons for better cooling from extra heat introduced in the system by forced induction. The turbocharged 4G63 engine received an internal update during the model year. The engines built from through April have 6-bolt motors. Beginning in May , Mitsubishi revised the engine to a 7-bolt design. The bolts refer to the number of bolts on the flywheel that connects to the crankshaft.

Problems and issues[edit]

In March , Mitsubishi issued a recall (bulletin 98V) for all Mitsubishi Eclipse GSXs citing, "Lockup of the transfer case can occur due to insufficient lubrication. The condition can cause a loss of vehicle control increasing the risk of a crash." The dealers would inspect the vehicles for the adequacy of the transfer case oil volume, transfer case oil leakage, and operational degradation of the transfer case mechanism. The transfer case itself did not leak but rather the brass plug in the center of the transfer case yoke would leak. Mitsubishi estimated 24, vehicles were affected.[6]

Post-facelift Mitsubishi Eclipse coupe rear

The Eclipse was redesigned in (for the model year) and included standard dual airbags, more rounded styling, a larger interior, and a new engine made by Chrysler for the base model. The second-generation car maintained the market focus of the first generation car but had numerous changes to appeal to a broader market. A convertible model, named the Eclipse Spyder, was introduced in offered in two trim levels; the GS and the GS-T. The Spyder GS was powered by a &#;L I4 naturally-aspirated 4G64 engine. The Spyder GS-T was fitted with Mitsubishi's turbocharged 4G63 engine. The GSX model was also powered by this engine but with the addition of a high performance all wheel drive system. No convertible model was powered by the Chrysler's a engine, nor was there a convertible with all-wheel-drive.[11]

The turbocharged engine option continued as the 4G It was also updated for more power as compared to the previous generation (&#;hp (&#;kW) vs &#;hp (&#;kW)). The naturally aspirated cars had two different I-4 engines depending on the market they were produced for. The US version engines produced &#;hp, found only in the RS and GS trims, and were a modified version of the Chrysler Neon engine, the a, manufactured by Chrysler and delivered to and installed at the Diamond Star Motors facility. The European market engines were a naturally aspirated 4G63 with &#;hp (&#;kW; &#;PS). International market Eclipses made less horsepower than their Japanese domestic market relatives when equipped with the 4G63 (&#;hp (&#;kW), &#;hp (&#;kW)), due to emissions regulations at the time.

This model exceeded Japanese government's compact car regulations regarding exterior dimensions (maximum width of 1,&#;mm (&#;in)), therefore incurred a more expensive annual road tax obligation.

A special version of the Eclipse, called the "10th Anniversary OZ Rally", was sold at the end of the model run with unique inch Enkei wheels with the OZ Racing logo. It also included the leather interior package, accented exhaust exit, “silver” gauges, mud flaps, and hoop-style spoiler that were available as standard equipment on GS-T and GSX models. The special edition package was only offered with the A engine.

A unique version of the 2G Eclipse was sold in some European countries. It used a naturally aspirated Mitsubishi 4G63 motor, similar to what was available in the 1G, unique side-view mirrors, and amber rear turn signals.

A minor style revision was applied for the model year. The front grille opening was given a more aggressive profile. The headlights were given a sharper slant on the inner edges, and the previous all-chrome fixture interior changed to a black interior with chrome reflector inserts. The driving lights were revised from a reflector type to a smaller projection type. The rear bumper cap was altered and had the reverse lights restyled and moved out into the bumper fascia, away from their original central position by the license plate bracket. The GS-T coupe and GSX received a large rear spoiler. The interior color choices also changed from blue, and grey in – model years to black/grey, tan/black, and grey in the – model years.[11] The black leather interior option was only available in ; the package included all seats (with the 'Mitsubishi' logo embroidered on both of the fronts), door inserts, and a center console armrest.

Powertrain[edit]

The basic driveline layout of the Eclipse is a transverse-mounted 4-cylinder Chrysler A, Mitsubishi 4G64 or 4G63 engine. The Mitsubishi motors are mounted in the same orientation as the first generation cars. The a-powered cars had the engine mounted on the right side of the car, and further back in the chassis. AWD models had a similar transmission to the first generation car. The second-generation GSX also had a stronger carrier/differential when equipped with the limited-slip option.

Engines[edit]

All motors are four-cylinder gasoline engines. All have cast iron blocks with aluminum cylinder heads. The 4G63/4G64 engines retain the balance shafts for smoother operation, while the a does not use them. The – turbo engines were given an increased compression ratio of , up from , and a smaller turbo, a Garrett T25 set to 12 psi in place of the previous Mitsubishi TDG (automatic cars) and TDB (manual cars). This was done to minimize turbo lag, which was an undesirable trait for mass-market appeal in the U.S. These changes led to increased horsepower and torque vs. the previous 1G turbos. The 2G turbo cars produced &#;hp (&#;kW) at rpm (&#;hp (&#;kW) at rpm w/ AT) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) at rpm (&#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) at rpm with AT.)

The 4G63t engines found in – models have a 60&#;mm throttle body compared to the – MY's 52&#;mm. The intake ports on the head and runners of the intake manifold are also larger on the 1G. They also have larger crankshaft bearing journals to allow better lubrication. Because they look similar, it is important to note that the cylinder head is more on the side of high air volume, while the cylinder head is more on the side of high air velocity.

Mitsubishi Motors quietly updated its 4G63 engine in and The crankshaft is more precisely shaved and cut compared to previous years. It is identical to that used in the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, which was not yet sold in North America until The thrust bearings have been revised to a "split" type to allow better lubrication and self-alignment with the crankshaft. It also had improved tuning and functionality thanks to a new ECU, which was similar to Lancer Evolution ECUs. Although originally deactivated to protect the drivetrain, it included advanced features such as launch control, boost control, adjustable rev-limit, fuel system control as well as fuel and boost map selection for certain Mitsubishi Heavy Industries turbochargers.

Problems and issues[edit]

The 2G Eclipse received numerous Technical Service Bulletins (TSB) affecting a variety of issues with the car however there was one notable powertrain recall. In March , Mitsubishi issued a recall (bulletin 98V) for all Mitsubishi Eclipse GSXs citing, "Lockup of the transfer case can occur due to insufficient lubrication. The condition can cause a loss of vehicle control increasing the risk of a crash." The dealers would inspect the vehicles for the adequacy of the transfer case oil volume, transfer case oil leakage, and operational degradation of the transfer case mechanism. The transfer case itself did not leak but rather the brass plug in the center of the transfer case yoke would leak. Mitsubishi estimated 24, vehicles were affected.[6]

Another issue that impacted the mid Eclipse GS-T/GSX (4G63 equipped vehicles) is thrust bearing failure commonly referred to in the Eclipse community as "crankwalk." Mitsubishi never publicly addressed the issue via a recall or TSB. There were a variety of symptoms however the most common symptom of crankwalk is the clutch pedal would stick to the floor upon making a left turn. If crankwalk occurred, it typically meant engine failure. In , Mitsubishi revised manufacturing processes to correct the issue.

Safety[edit]

All 2G Eclipses came standard with driver and front-passenger airbags, side-guard door beams, front and rear body structure crumple zones, 5&#;mph energy-absorbing bumpers, safety-cage body construction, 4- wheel disc brakes (except RS), three-point ELR/ALR lap/shoulder safety belts (ELR only for the driver) and height-adjustable front shoulder belts. Anti-lock brakes were optional on all models (except for RS).

Overview[edit]

The Eclipse underwent a change into its third generation in , closely applying the Mitsubishi SST design study which debuted at the North American International Auto Show. It was the first concept vehicle exhibited by Mitsubishi at an auto show in the U.S.[15]

Two new powertrain options were available, a &#;hp (&#;kW) &#;L valve SOHC 4-cylinder 4G64 and a &#;hp (&#;kW) 24v SOHC &#;L V6 (6G72). AWD was no longer an option. The suspension setup was modified to provide a softer and more compliant ride quality.

The third-generation Eclipse shared its powertrain with the 8th generation Galant. In late , the power of the GT trim was lowered to &#;hp (&#;kW) as a result of tightened emission standards forcing MMNA to adopt the California emissions standards for all variants of the car, rather than selling independent 'Federal Specification' and 'California Specifications' versions.

In mid, the GTS trim was introduced for the model year. This vehicle included an engine with a compression ratio, revised camshaft profile, and an improved Mitsubishi Variable Induction Management (MVIM) air intake system that gave the car an extra 10&#;hp (&#;kW) and a slightly improved power curve. The – GTS coupe, GTS Spyder and GT Spyder[16] shared the new engine while the GT coupe retained the &#;hp (&#;kW) powertrain.

With the introduction of the GTS model, the Eclipse saw minor changes including a redesigned front bumper with slotted fog lights, as well as a recoloring of the taillights. On the interior, the gauge face changed, and the door panels were also redesigned. Newly designed five-spoke chrome wheels were offered with the GT and GTS trims.

In , Mitsubishi Motors imported the Eclipse Spyder to the Japanese Domestic Market as a special edition.[17]

Trim levels[edit]

The Eclipse was available in 7 trim levels: RS, GS, GS Spyder, GT, GT Spyder, GTS, and GTS Spyder. All trim levels (besides RS and the Spyder) came with an automatic tilt and retracting sunroof. All models were FWD. The GTS trims were introduced for the model year. For the model year, the RS trim was discontinued and a special "Remix Edition" GS trim package was introduced, which included chrome wheels, identifying placards, and the premium interior package from the GT and GTS models, which was not previously offered on the GS trim.

  • Eclipse RS: Base model equipped with a &#;hp (&#;kW) &#;L valve SOHC Mitsubishi 4G64 engine; automatic RS models were only 3G Eclipse without Mitsubishi's "sportronic" select-shift option[18]
  • Eclipse GS: Upgraded model equipped with a &#;hp (&#;kW) &#;L valve SOHC Mitsubishi 4G64 engine
  • Eclipse GS Spyder: Convertible model equipped with a &#;hp (&#;kW) &#;L valve SOHC Mitsubishi 4G64 engine
  • Eclipse GT: Upgraded model equipped with a &#;hp (&#;kW) &#;L valve SOHC Mitsubishi 6G72 engine
  • Eclipse GT Spyder: convertible model equipped with a &#;hp (&#;kW) &#;L valve SOHC Mitsubishi 6G72 engine. convertible FWD model equipped with a &#;hp (&#;kW) L valve SOHC Mitsubishi 6G72 engine with MVIM[18]

  • Eclipse GTS Spyder: Convertible model equipped with a &#;hp (&#;kW) &#;L valve SOHC Mitsubishi 6G72 engine with MVIM

Engines[edit]

The third generation Eclipse utilized two distinct Mitsubishi engines: The SOHC 4G64 &#;L valve four-cylinder and SOHC 6G72 &#;L valve V6. Both engines use cast iron blocks with aluminum cylinder heads. The four-cylinder, found in the RS, GS, and GS Spyder trims, used a compression ratio and produced an output of &#;hp (&#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque throughout all years.[16]

The &#;L V6, however, used in GT and GT Spyder models, produced &#;hp (&#;kW) in Federal Specifications between and &#;hp (&#;kW) in all GT models in California Specifications, all years with a static compression ratio of In , the &#;L V6 was improved for the GTS and GT/GTS Spyder, using a revised camshaft profile, raised compression ratio of and variable-length MVIM intake manifold. This engine produced &#;hp (&#;kW).

Safety[edit]

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has determined crash test ratings of Eclipse of different model years:[7]

Mitsubishi Eclipse EV[edit]

The Mitsubishi Eclipse EV is a prototype electric vehicle with a lightweight electric motor and lithium-ion batteries in the chassis of a third-generation Eclipse. It is powered by manganese lithium-ion batteries made by Japan Storage Battery, which have 65% reduced charging time over nickel-hydrogen batteries.

The prototype model participated in the Shikoku EV Rally, a &#;km (&#;mi) circuit around the perimeter of Shikoku, Japan, where it drove in excess of &#;km (&#;mi) on a single battery charge.[19]

Overview[edit]

Another substantial styling revision was introduced, with the new model taking some of the profile from the second generation model but maintaining a front fascia consistent with Mitsubishi's current corporate styling features. Drivetrain features of the new model include a &#;hp (&#;kW) &#;L MIVEC V6 for the GT trim, and newer models have &#;hp (&#;kW). The GS has a &#;hp (&#;kW) &#;L MIVEC four-cylinder, both derived from the Mitsubishi PS platform family, with which the Eclipse shares many mechanical components. Like the Galant and third generation Eclipse, the new Eclipse is FWD only, although a concept model has been produced by Mitsubishi and Ralliart with a MillenWorks designed hybrid-electric AWD platform, the 4G63 engine from the Lancer Evolution, and more aggressive body styling with imitation carbon fiber accents.[20] The V6 produces &#;hp (&#;kW) and &#;ft⋅lbf (&#;N⋅m) of torque.

The fourth-generation Spyder (convertible) Eclipse was released for the model year at the North American International Auto Show.

Since , power is upgraded to &#;bhp (&#;PS; &#;kW) at rpm and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) at rpm of torque.[21] The intake valves begin to open at 5° before top dead center, and close 55° after top dead center. The exhaust valves open 51° after top dead center, and close 17° after top dead center. The oil pump is a trochoid type. The cooling system is water cooled forced circulation with a centrifugal impeller type pump.[22]

Emissions Control[edit]

The Eclipse is equipped with dual bank catalytic converters on the manifolds of both the 4 and 6 cylinder engines with O2 sensors placed after each catalytic converter to monitor operation. Downstream of these is a third catalytic converter placed mid way in the exhaust to assist in preventing further emissions.

The Eclipse has an EGR system.

The Eclipse PCV system returns into the intake piping to prevent contaminants from escaping.

Facelifts[edit]

Mitsubishi Eclipse coupe

The Mitsubishi Eclipse was given a minor facelift for the model year, the front fascia changed the fog lights and deleted the triangle housing the "three diamond" logo used to sit on in the grille; the rear fascia changed the "Eclipse" insignia from an indent to raised silver letters. An option to add a dual exhaust and projector H.I.D. headlamps also became available. The V6 engine now rated at &#;hp (&#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque in part due to the more open front fascia as well as a new stock dual exhaust system.[23] It was unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show.

For , the Mitsubishi Eclipse featured a "blackout" roof, similar to the model. Mitsubishi also lowered the suspension of Eclipse about half an inch to create a lower center of gravity.[24] A rear backup camera and Bluetooth hands free calling to the Sun and sound package were included. In the GS trim, the car gets the same inch wheels and blackout front end as the GT model called the GS Sport.[25]

Final model year[edit]

Mitsubishi Eclipse SE

For the model year, the Eclipse received three slight changes: brake override logic, a clear lip spoiler on the GT trim, and one new exterior color. According to a review and rating by Motor Trend, the fourth-generation Eclipse was described as "dated" - but its "exterior design still stands out among sporty coupes currently available."[26] The model year Eclipse was now six years old and "is still trying to pass itself off as a sporty two-door."[26] This was the final model year, albeit a short run because production ended in August [27][28]

The last Eclipse to roll off the assembly line was built on 16 August , painted Kalapana Black, its color was chosen by members of Mitsubishi's Facebook community, who picked from a historical Eclipse color palette. This was the only Eclipse equipped with both the L/&#;hp V-6 engine and the commemorative SE package, as well as special inch Dark Argent alloy wheels and one of a kind graphics. It is also built with a sunroof, leather interior, W Rockford Fosgate 9-speaker audio system with Sirius XM, hands-free Bluetooth phone interface, rear-view camera, and HID headlights. The car was auctioned off by Mecum Auctions in St. Charles, Illinois on 17 September , for $35,[29] Proceeds went to the Japanese Red Cross to aid victims of the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami.[30]

Grand total Eclipse production was , units.[31]

Recalls[edit]

  • 05V - Recalled 6 February , vehicles were found equipped with faulty brake booster assemblies. The brake booster could separate due to improper crimp joints resulting in total brake failure
  • 05V - Recalled 27 June , master cylinders were found to have improperly installed seals. Brake fluid may bypass the seal and result in longer pedal stroke, and reduced braking pressure
  • 15V - Recalled 6 February , vehicles made between 23 December and 13 February were recalled for corrosion issues in the ABS unit. This can cause internal valves to seize, resulting in sudden brake failure or reduced stopping ability
  • 08V - Recalled 9 September , certain vehicles had improper fuel tank mounting brackets which could split. This could result in the fuel tank to come undone in a collision and potentially cause a fuel leak.

Motorsport[edit]

The Eclipse has been campaigned in various auto racing events.

Rally, endurance and road racing[edit]

The Eclipse, and its Chrysler-branded counterparts, have competed in Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) events.

In , a GT2 class specification Eclipse GSX was entered into the annual 24 Hours of Daytona endurance race. It was placed on grid number 74, at the back in last place. It moved up to 24th place overall finish without any issues.[32] It nearly set a new record as well, passing a total of 50 cars.[33][34] In , it entered the race again but was now in a lower specification class (GT3/GTS3)[35] It finished in 24th place. In , the Eclipse made its final appearance in the race, achieving 39th place, after posting laps.[36][37][38] The name of the team was Spirit of Daytona and their sponsor was Daytona Mitsubishi. Craig Conway, Eric Van Cleef, and Todd Flis were the drivers.[39]

In and , Greg Collier won the NASA Super Unlimited class national title in a Plymouth Laser RS Turbo.[40] These wins were over purpose built Ferrari Challenge and Porsche Carrera Cup race cars.

In and , an Eclipse Spyder GS-T driven by Matt Andrews and Andrew Brilliant won the Super Lap Battle Limited championship in Willow Springs, California.[41]

In , a heavily built and tuned Mitsubishi Eclipse piloted by Mark Rybníček won the Czech Hill Climb championship.[42] Other drivers such as Karel Stehlik[43][44] and David Komarek[45] have used Eclipses in hill climb competition as well. Some of engines produce as much as &#;hp (&#;kW; &#;PS). They also have short transmission gears to accelerate into triple-digit speeds.

Drag racing[edit]

Brent Rau has won three world drag racing championships using an Eclipse; IDRC, NDRA, and NHRA.[46] Many other notable names have also claimed big wins piloting Eclipses for drag racing as well.[47]

Jett Racing entered a 3rd generation Eclipse for drag racing competition. As of , they hold the world record for the world's fastest four cylinder. It has 1,&#;hp (1,&#;kW; 1,&#;PS) and is RWD. It is capable of over 2,&#;bhp (1,&#;kW; 2,&#;PS).[48][49] On 29 November , they ran seconds in the quarter-mile with MPH for the top speed.[50]

With eye-catching style and heart-thumping mechanics, the Mitsubishi Eclipse sport coupe — in production for more than 20 years — was an Eclipse you couldn’t help but stare at.

Its low, road-hugging stance stood out among other sporty coupes and promised to raise its owners’ street cred. In the face of countless competitors, the two-door, four-seat Mitsubishi sports car maintained continued success over four generations and, to this day, has a strong fanbase of car aficionados and motorsport enthusiasts.

Mitsubishi Eclipse

A True
Driver’s Car

Despite being built at a Mitsubishi plant in an Illinois town called Normal, the Mitsubishi Eclipse was anything but — attracting plenty of attention for its futuristic appearance and wide, sporty silhouette.

The first generation Eclipse — designed in the U.S. at the Mitsubishi Motors North America Design Studio and introduced in — was available in four trim levels: Eclipse, Eclipse GS, Eclipse GS-T (Turbo) and Eclipse GSX. With the exception of the all-wheel drive GSX, each Mitsubishi Eclipse was front-wheel drive.

Both the Mitsubishi Eclipse GS Turbo and Eclipse GSX were equipped with a turbocharged liter 4G63 engine that achieved up to horsepower, and could go from zero-to in less than seven seconds. With its spirited acceleration and precise handling, it was entirely befitting for the purpose-built Eclipse to be named after an 18th century English racehorse with a record number of wins.

Over the years, new models were added and Eclipse continued to anticipate desires and exceed expectations of form, function, beauty and technology — as a true driver’s car should. But as Mitsubishi’s global focus shifted towards meeting environmental targets around the world, the company announced the discontinuation of the Eclipse, to invest more time and effort into developing battery technology.

To mark the end of the Eclipse’s illustrious career, a final special edition was created for both the sport coupe and Eclipse Spyder models. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Special Edition featured distinctive badging, leather interior with contrasting stitching, a sunroof for the coupe version, and a choice of two engines: a liter 4-cylinder engine producing hp, or liter V6 cranking out up to hp.

Today, while the Mitsubishi Eclipse sport coupe is no longer produced, drivers can still be the envy of the masses with Mitsubishi’s lineup of versatile crossovers, including the Eclipse Cross — a crossover SUV with sharp coupe looks that builds on a history of style, and fun-to-drive dynamics.

From Eclipse to
Eclipse Cross

The Eclipse
Spirit Lives On

Mitsubishi designs are rooted in Mitsubishi heritage. And since there was much to love about the Mitsubishi Eclipse sport coupe, it was only natural that it would inspire one of the best-loved vehicles in our current lineup: the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Although the two vehicle platforms are distinct, both are driver-centric. Many features that made the Eclipse a success — from the ergonomically-designed cabin to the turbo engine — were fined tuned and live on in its namesake.

The GSX’s all-wheel-drive technology continues in the Eclipse Cross with a new version of Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC). And much like the Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T and GSX, the Eclipse Cross is equipped with a turbocharged engine that encourages weight savings. The feature has been adjusted to promote better mileage results.

While the coupes’ Sportronic transmission is not akin to the Eclipse Cross’ CVT, it did inspire Mitsubishi to add paddle shifters2 to the Eclipse Cross’ steering column, giving the crossover a sportier feel. In addition to the available paddle shifters, the 8-step sport mode lets drivers shift manually for maximum control.
