are the turbo eclipses 95 and up high maintentance mechanically? i've decided to get a 95 or later model to modify and i'm just thinking if eclipses are the right way to go as far as mechanical problems and such. the reason i wanted to go with another eclipse because i've had a 92 and it's over a decade old and i've never really had to do anything major to it besides the tune ups. never had any mechanical problems all this time i've had it, so i'm thinking that mitsubishi is pretty reliable. however, my 92 is a basic non-turbo model. is a faster car more likely to have problems than my non-souped up car? any opinions? bottom line, i'm getting a different car that i'd like to modify and a 95 and up eclipse with around 200 hp starting is what i'm leaning towards since there are a lot of aftermarket mods for it and i've had experience with an older eclipse. though, i don't know how reliable a more powerful engine would be. hope some of you can put your two cents in.
