    His first complaint is the starter and alternator going out and he's running headers (not wrapped) that will kill the alternator, and the starter lives above the front pipe, my guess is front pipe is upgraded as well and no proper heat shielding there either. I know he said he bought it that way but don't blame the car for someone's negligence. Again reason 3 is not the cars fault that's the buyer's fault. #4 is fixed by the net now a days. #5 is not the car either, he's listing someone's stereo install as something he hates which is fine but it's not the car.

    The only legit one is #2 is tinting is a pain in the butt. That's a problem with most hatchbacks as well.

    Sounds like that owner is an idiot. Almost all of his complaints are things he did to the car or the previous owner did. "Don't buy a modded car without a list", sounds like he did if the list was outdated. Tinted windows were his choice, no the cars fault. Twenty-two year old cars will have parts starting to fail, especially if the car was neglected by the previous owner. I can get parts from my local parts stores easily, mostly a one day wait as they don't stock every part at one location. Lets be honest, most people buy aftermarket parts anyway which are found online.

    That video was pointless and a rant about him not knowing anything about what the previous owner did before he bought it.

    Modded performance cars aren't for everyone. Even less so when they're 20+ years old. It takes a certain type of passion and dedication that some end up realizing they don't have. The romantic vision you have of owning one doesn't always mesh with the reality. And some people just don't really know cars, or care to learn about them. It's actually kind of sad.

    Lol "Mistusbishi wasnt the highest quality for its time" ??? really??? really??? so then tell me oh wise one, what car company from "that time" was higher quality? so.. how many 25 year old turbo cars are still around in abundance? how many Toyota's that are 25 years old are on the road? how many Subaru's? how many Honda's? how many Nissan's? how many Porsche? how many Audi? how about VW, Chevy, Ford, Chrysler, etc etc etc... and out of any of those how many have a better interior for that time period? really? LOL for its time the Eclipse was one of the nicest cars that could be had, interior included, not many had anything better.

    This guy is an uninformed entitled millenial moron, he was struggling to make up 5 things as it was, tint on curved glass? thats a problem? you dont like that the sports car has a hatch?? really? so you would rather it have a trunk? LOL buy a Spyder then that will fix that issue. you cant walk into the local store and buy control arms? so you think you can buy control arms at Vatozone for a Chevy Cruise off the shelf? so thats a problem with the car? so I guess you he hates most cars out there then because you wont be buying control arms for many cars off the shelf. He hates that the car thats 25 years old needs an alternator or a starter or a sensor? are you kidding? how many 5 year old cars need those same parts? about 70% from where I stand, he must hate them too. I hope someone else gets that poor car that can appreciate it and get it out of that douche bags hands before he queers it up any further.

    5 THINGS I HATE ABOUT THIS DOUCHEBAG:
    1)COMPLETELY IGNORANT ABOUT THE SUBJECT MATTER OF HIS OWN VIDEO
    2)IF HE CAN'T FIGURE OUT THE SIMPLICITY OF STEREO WIRING HE'S IN A WORLD OF HURT BUYING A MODDED DSM.
    3)HE SHOPS AT AUTOZONE.
    4) CAN'T DO SIMPLE MATH.
    5)HIS HAIRCUT.

    I knew everyone would get a good laugh out of that! Freaking audio system is a perfect reason to hate a specific car

    At least he sold the car before doing TOO much damage to it.

    Didn't watch the videos but I imagine it's your usual click bait YouTube car sh** that everyone is doing nowadays in hopes that they can quite their sh**ting day job to make repetitive YouTube videos. Next, he'll buy some 240sx and the video will be titled "5 things I didn't know about 240sx'".

    The way this guy talks is extremely annoying. He also seems like one of the most nitpicky ppl, kinda like some of the customers I get.

    They REALLY do need to build that border wall, keep the classic cars where they belong.
