Thank you so much. That does make sense but it does look a bit different.

I owned a 99 eclipse and that was the color combo my car came with on the inside. I have to admit that I thought it was very distasteful so I had it all replaced with a black/red theme. But no it sounds all good.

Comforting. I think if the colour really starts to bother me, I too will have it replaced. They must have been on good something when they designed the colour schemes

I have a 2007 Eclipse 6cyl/5 speed automatic. I have had my car on two cross country trips totaling about 8000 miles. At 4000/3000 feet my normal driving area, I get on an average of 22 city and 29 hwy. On my cross country trips I was averaging between 29 and 33.5 mpg highway! I noticed as the altitude decreased my mpg went up. While in Chicago for three week my city mpg was about 23. Also note where I live New Mexico (4433 FT) the highest octane around is 90, only at lower altitudes was I able to find/use 93 octane gas. PS: Octane levels sold at the pump also has to due with what altitude you live at. The high the altitude the less octane that is required for proper ignition. Still would prefer to run 93 all the time.

I'm considering an '07 Eclipse Coupe w/4cyl/5spd. Does anyone have highway mileage near 30mpg as listed on their sticker and assured me by the sales mngr?
I realize you ask this a long time ago but since it is a common question I'll share my results.
I own a 2006 GS Eclipse with the 5 speed manual. It is in the UV Blue Pearl color scheme. I'll admit I drive the car faster than I should most of the time. I'm quick off the line and drive at high speeds on the highway. Even with this, my mileage averages out at 28 mpg. When I drive calmly, I have no problem getting 30 mpg and have in fact got 33 mpg before. The lowest mileage I have seen is 26 mpg but I normally get the 28 mpg as mentioned earlier. I just like to drive the car fast!

I recently bought a one owner 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS with 122,000 miles on it. Yes 122,000 miles. The carfax showed it being serviced every 3000-4500 miles at the dealership. The dealer even let me contact the previous owner. He gave it up reluctantly for a new 2009 Honda since he felt there were deals to be had in this economy. He HATES his new car and even asked if I'd be willing to sell it back to him. Sorry dude but I love this car even owning it now just a couple months. It was meticulously cared for.
Mileage is 21-24 mpg with short 14 mile commutes to work each day. There is not a single wet or fluid spot on or under the engine. I paid a whole $5000 for it after talking the dealer down from $7995.
My point is do your research with carfax reports and also do comparison pricing using cars.com or autotrader.com on the same thing within a couple hundred miles. Go prepared to walk out if they won't deal as you will find one that will.

Less than 4,000 miles and 4 months and clutch goes out, won't honor drive train warranty and payments paid and repossesing to get by warranty. Even said at first the clutch wasn't a part o drive train.

I know of no MFG that covers clutch after 30 days. Not shocking at all. As to get by warranty comment, I've never heard of that. Did you stop paying? If so the creditor is not the MFG: They are always entitled to their cash. Good Luck! Don't blame the car.
