Eclipse 6-cyl

  • 30,000 miles
I've previously owned 2 Eclipses w/ no problems, this one however has been nothing but a lemon. 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT V6. In addition to the clutch which had to be replaced 1 yr after warranty expired, I have had an abundance of problems w/ parts that should never need to be replaced, none have been covered by warranty. I have replaced every sway bar twice, the A/C failed, the antenna embedded in the rear window failed, one oxygen sensor, the middle rear brake light wiring broke, 2 catalytic converters failed. And the worst is I was going through a headlight a month only to discover that the headlights had actually melted the to the connectors on both sides! and now I may have an electrical fault or faulty valve in my A/C unit causing my heat to kick on when the A/C is turned on.
