    2009 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder

    • Attractive things include stylish design, top-down cruising, the V6's ample power, comfortable front seats, and a powerful Rockford Fosgate audio system.

      - Edmunds.com
    • As this is the third generation of the Eclipse Spyder (though the fourth-generation Eclipse), the car was designed from the outset to have its roof chopped. Extra bracing to the PS platform of the Eclipse was needed mostly for crash safety, but had the side benefit of increasing torsional rigidity by 55 percent versus the previous Spyder.

    What reviewers liked least about the Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder

    • Extra power gives stronger acceleration but at the cost of nose-heavy feel, far too much torque steer, and a tendency to spin the front tires on takeoff-even with a light foot on the throttle. Tip-in is too quick and too sensitive, despite the grip of the 235/45VR-18 tires offered with the GT premium package.

      - Automobile
    • It has a barely usable backseat, poor top-up visibility, sluggish four-cylinder engine, torque steer on V6 models, large turning radius, and no stability control.

      - Edmunds.com
    • The car's heft, 60/40 front/rear weight distribution and front-wheel drive add up to handling that is fine for 7/10s-and-below driving, but becomes a less-than-willing partner over that aggression level, with a high amount of understeer.

    Best one-liner about the Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder

    • The Eclipse Spyder is not a sports car, in the truest sense of the term. Accept that, and you can't go wrong.

      - New Car Test Drive
    • Bring on the sun.
