2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse ProblemsThe 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.
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 manual transmission may become difficult to shift, this is commonly caused by binding between the synchronizer and the gear surface. Adding a special friction modifier to the manual transmission fluid will often correct this condition. If the problem persists revised synchronizer kits may be available.

2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse RecallsBrakes 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.
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 shifter interlock to key lock cable may be improperly manufactured. This may allow the key to come out with the vehicle not in park. This could allow the vehicle to roll out of control. Dealers will inspect the cable and replace it if necessary. The Mitsubishi recall number is SR-06-005. This recall began on November 20, 2006.
