2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse Problems
The sunroof may become stuck in the closed position or require "help" moving forward and backward. The common repair is to replace the guides but often the problem will resurface again.
The brake pedal may pulsate when the brakes are applied. This is most commonly caused by the front brake rotors warping. Resurfacing the affected rotors may correct the problem for the short term but replacement would generally considered a longer term solution.
The manual transmission may become difficult to shift due to problems with the synchronizers. This most commonly affects second gear. Replacement of the affected synchronizers may be required to correct this concern.

2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse Reviews
Sporty, and smooth shifting, Don't like having no real rear seats nor the poor turning radius. Miledge is 20 miles per gallon around town and 24 Hwy. is fair considering the power 200 Hp. The car has that pushing you back deep into the seats when you punch the pedal!
bought this car with 120,XXX it was fun driving.. so smooth and fast as 4cylinder types.
