2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse Problems

Brake Pedal Pulsation

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.

Airbags may not deploy as expected

There have been reports of airbags not deploying in the event of a frontal impact. Some claim that a shorted airbag wire harness can cause this to occur. Unfortunately there is no diagnoses that will isolate this problem other than fault codes stored in the airbag control module. Our technicians recommend to have any airbag light issues diagnosed and repaired in order to help ensure the airbags will deploy when needed.

Charging system may stop working due to fuseable link

The 80 amp fusible link for the charging system can fail and is often overlooked when diagnosing a charging system that is not working. Our technicians recommend to make sure this fusible link is OK before replacing any charging system components.

2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse Recalls

Brakes May Not Function Properly

The anti-lock brake system unit may corrode internally. This can cause extended brake pedal travel and reduced braking ability. Dealers will inspect, flush and clean the anti-lock brake system hydraulic unit using high grade brake fluid free of charge to resolve the concern.

Crash May Damage Fuel Tank Resulting in a Fuel Leak

The attachment for the left fuel tank mounting strap may have been improperly formed, causing the metal to split. In the event the fuel tank is full and the vehicle is involved in a severe collision, the attachment bracket may break, allowing the fuel tank to drop down and possibly causing a fuel leak. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the mounting bracket and perform repairs as necessary. This recall is scheduled to begin on September 20, 2008. The Mitsubishi recall number is SR-08-005.

The Brake Master Cylinder May Fail

The hydraulic seals in the brake master cylinder may have been installed incorrectly. As a result, the master cylinder could fail without warning, increasing the risk of a crash, Dealers will replace the master cylinder to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on June 28, 2005. The Mitsubishi recall number is SR-05-003.

Can't believe there are NO! reviews for the new body style Eclipse (introduced 2006 model year). I bought the car new in early 2006 and it has been one of the most reliable and enjoyable small and sporty looking cars I've owned. Oh, there are some preference items I would want different if money were no object; but for the money I spent (around $22K brand new), the car is a terrific value & l...
