2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Owner Comments

Eclipse 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission

I have a 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse gts. It has about 75,000 miles on it now. I have now bent 4 wheels on this model. They keep blaming it on me, saying its my driving, but after the fourth time, I know it is not me. I should not be regularly bending wheels on a car, especially when the vast majority of my driving is highway driving.

Have a 2003 Eclipse and many many problems since purchasing. After regular scheduled tire balance and rotation, took the car back because of shaking at 50-60 mph, the dealership told me the rims were bent, and they would have to be replaced, and they did (right after balance and rotating" would they balance if the rims were bent") had my car in numerous times for moisture in my windows when putting them down and back up, a lot of moisture and bad visibility, replaced strips which helped mold smell, but can't fix the moisture. B/C of the bad visibility I am extra careful, but my car should not have this problem. Recently the molding on the windshield was coming loose, the dealership fixed it (sent it to a window place) and since then I have a film on my windshield which makes it very difficult to see...I have cleaned the glass numerous times, my wipers were fairly new, mitsbushi wouldn't look at it when I took it in for another rim replacement. My car still shakes, my windows and windshield have bad visibility problems, and now my sunroof button has popped out and will not open unless I hold it in first.

Bulge on front tire of 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse gts. Tire is a Goodyear rsa P215/50 R17. Less than 10,000 miles on tire when bulge appeared. Both Mitsubishi and Goodyear blamed defect on me and offered no compensation. Also have two bent original rims on car. The rims and tires on the Eclipse have a poor history and safety rating.
