 I am selling a 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse GST Spyder. I am going to try to summarize the car as best as possible. Let me start by saying that I am the third owner and that my friend bought it from the original owner last year and barely drove it. Him and I have put a lot of work into the car as far as small details to get the car back to where it needed to be. This car is very rare. It was well taken care of and was never modified or abused. The stock intake, intercooler, blowoff valve, etc. are still there. This car will make a perfect project or just a daily driver without needing a thing. The car has received fresh plugs, valve cover gasket and grommets, new accessory belts, new front rotors, calipers and pads, fresh pads in the rear. The previous owner had changed the top with new seals throughout and has never leaked that I know of. The car drives on four matching and almost new Continental DWS tires which are great in the snow. The clutch grabs perfectly and was changed at around 120k. The only things wrong with the car that I can think of that need to be done if you are a perfectionist is to respray the body cladding on the driver side. The car has perfect shock towers as I know that this is a problem with these vehicles. The car does have some surface rust creeping up on the lower door jams on both sides underneath the side skirts as well. The original radio was pulled and replaced with a pioneer head unit with an aux jack. I cannot think of anything else to say about this car other than that it has plenty of life left in it. I am selling the car "As Is." The car will last you a long time and can be driven with full confidence.
Please bid with confidence. I have a reserve price set. I will need a $500 deposit 24 hours after the end of auction and full amount paid within 72 hours via Paypal. I reserve the right to end the auction early for any reason.

Mitsubishi recalling i-MiEV models for brake problem

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 08:20:00 EST

Mitsubishi is issuing a recall for the 2010-2014 i-MiEV that affects 1,810 units of the little electric car, because it's possible for the brake vacuum pump to stop working. If this happens, the result would be longer stopping distances, according to the company. The affected models were built between September 15, 2009, and March 25, 2014.
While this is just a single recall, there are actually two things that can cause this brake problem on the i-MiEV, according to Mitsubishi's filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. First, bad programming in the EV-ECU could cause the system to "falsely judge that the relay contact point is stuck," according to the full NHTSA defect notice PDF. Second, the vacuum pump exhaust hole could be corroded and blocked due to being splashed with road salt. However, the company says that if either fault happens, the brake warning lamp would illuminate, and there would be an audible alarm.
Depending on which issue is affecting an owner's i-MiEV, Mitsubishi is going to reprogram the software, replace the pump or both. Scroll down to read the recall report from NHTSA.

Mitsubishi ASX is French for Outlander Sport

Fri, 28 Sep 2012 03:32:00 EST

Mitsubishi has revealed the Euro-version of the same Outlander Sport model that debuted with updates earlier this year at the New York Auto Show. No, the French do not call it the Royale Sport (with cheese), but rather the ASX.
The crossover has received a range of aesthetic and engineering tweaks, including revised interior fabrics. Designers have also abandoned the old rotary knob switch for the vehicle's all-wheel-control system in favor of a pushbutton interface, though the largest change to the recipe comes in the form of a reworked multi-link rear suspension. Powertrain options remain unchanged, however, with a total of three engine mills on deck, including a 1.6-liter gasoline engine with 115 horsepower mated to a five-speed manual transmission in two-wheel drive configuration.
Those hunting up a little more traction can step up to a 1.8-liter diesel with 147 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque paired with a six-speed manual and the buyer's choice of either a two-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive system. A low-CO2 1.8 diesel is also available with 114 horsepower. You can check out the full press release below for more information.

Mitsubishi recalling 2013 Outlander Sport for suspension issue

Mon, 22 Jul 2013 18:30:00 EST

Just 305 units of the 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport are the subject of a recall over a potential suspension issue. Crossovers made from January 17-25 of this year might suffer from a bad weld on the front left strut's stabilizer link. If it fails, damage to the brake hose or tire could result, in turn making steering or braking control of the compact CUV more difficult.
When the recall begins, owners can take their Outlander Sports to Mitsubishi dealers for inspection and replacement of the strut assembly if necessary. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration bulletin below has more information.
