Passenger side mirror and door handle have paint peeling. Why is this happening? according to several body shops this is poor paint quality and issues from Mitsubishi. Ive noticed that almost all of the black Eclipses are having this issue.

There is a hollow opening behind carpet in floor under gas pedal. In less than 10,000 miles, a hole wore through the carpet. Now heels of shoes (just normal women's shoes, not spike heels!) get stuck while driving. An accident is inevitable if the problem is not repaired. I have driven many other model cars, many with worn carpeting, but none had a design flaw like the 2009 Mitsubishi Eclipse. I have been close to crashing several times. I reported it to the dealership, but they said it is not covered under the manufacturer's warranty.
