2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse Problems

The Clutch May Failure Prematurely

The clutch may fail prematurely or cause a buzzing type noise from the dash area. It has been recommended by some that a high quality aftermarket replacement clutch may provide increased longevity over a clutch purchased from the dealer.

PCM Software Update Available

The Check Engine Light may illuminate with no fault confirmed. Our technicians tell us a powertrain control module (PCM) software update is available which may correct this concern.

Check Engine Light Due to Engine Vacuum Leaks

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to one or more engine vacuum leaks. Our technicians tell us these leaks can be caused by damage to seals and/or vacuum hoses as a result of to much ethanol content in the gasoline. Affected hoses and seals must be replaced to correct this concern.

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...
