 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.

Consumer Reports: Ford Fusion fun but flawed; Mitsubishi i-MiEV slow, chintzy [w/videos]

Wed, 23 Jan 2013 16:31:00 EST

Waiting for a Ford compliment from Consumer Reports these days is like waiting for a low-cost new product from Apple. So we weren't really expecting a glowing review of the 2013 Ford Fusion when CR got its hands on the car. The institute's crew bought three different versions of the Fusion (Hybrid, 1.6-liter EcoBoost and a Titanium with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost) to put through its barrage of tests, and while we aren't too surprised by some of the findings, they're still interesting nonetheless.
CR praises the Fusion for its "eye-catching" design and says that the sportier Titanium trim level is the best-handling midsize sedan they've ever tested, but that's about where the good news ends for Ford. The Fusion Hybrid also posted the best-ever fuel economy CR has recorded in a midsize sedan, but the only problem is that their number was 39 miles per gallon combined - far less than Ford's 47 mpg rating for city, highway and combined. As expected, CR also dinged the Fusion for its MyFord Touch, but some of the other gripes about the car include a cramped cabin and poor fit and finish.
Other Ford products tested this time around include the Focus Electric and C-Max Hybrid. Like the Fusion, CR's observed fuel economy of 37 mpg for the C-Max fell well short of Ford's advertised 47-mpg rating, and both cars were criticized for the use of MyFord Touch. CR notes that the Focus Electric's interior is also cramped, with the battery pack taking up a lot of cargo space.

Mitsubishi boss confirms new Mirage for US; i EV enduring dismal sales

Mon, 12 Nov 2012 14:31:00 EST


By March, Mitsubishi expects to have sold just 55,000 cars in the US this fiscal year. That's a tiny sum - by comparison, Honda has sold over 276,000 Civic models thus far this year - and that's just one vehicle, not an entire brand. Mitsubishi president Osamu Masuko recognizes this is not a tenable position, and he's hoping the company will shift 80,000 units next fiscal year. Warding off speculation, Masuko has repeatedly stated that his company will not retreat from the US market like competitor Suzuki.
We reported on one part of Masuko's plan, the updated Outlander, and now he has confirmed that the small Mirage will be sold in the US beginning next September. The cut-price hatchback is selling well enough that Mitsu's Thailand plant is at its full capacity of 150,000 cars. "And even at that level it's not keeping up with orders," Masuko tells Automotive News. Masuko went on to say the plant would be expanded next year to handle an extra 50,000 units. We can also expect the Outlander plug-in early 2014.

Mitsubishi Evo snow frolic caught by aerial camera

Tue, 30 Apr 2013 20:00:00 EST

Guido Tschugg is a professional mountain biker and a Red Bull-sponsored athlete in downhill and four-cross. He's also a fan of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and drifting in the snow, and with the help of filmmaker Mario Feil and drone videographers airv8, the rally car and the powder are combined to glorious effect.
We could continue talking about it, but that would delay you from enjoying the two minutes of frosty beauty in the video below.
