Mitsubishi Eclipse Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Mitsubishi Eclipse

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.

The sunroof worked perfectly before but while it was open one night it got shoved back from someone standing out of it and it sounded like it got knocked off track. Now the motor works because it will open and close, but now when you first open it, it doesn't pop up as high as it was and it ...

The passenger side sun visor may detach if an accident occurs with it in the down position, and the passenger front air bag is deployed, striking it. Dealers will install a tether strap to retain the visor free of charge to resolve the concern.

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.

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...

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!

Great car, except mitusubishi went cheap on the interior, especially the plastics.
