    A few years ago (6) I had a 99 GS (OZ Edition) and have regretted getting rid of it ever since.
    Well I'm looking for another. I want a turbo this time. Would love a Turbo.
    Looking for a G2 (97-99 GST or GSX).

    I have been looking for something with under 150k miles and little to no rust.
    I have narrowed my search down to this ....
    1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse, Used Cars For Sale - Carsforsale.com

    Any thoughts?
    Thanks in advance.

    Don't look like to bad of a car. Although I would find out when the work was done on this car. Have to say if this would be your daily driver go over everything with a fine toothed comb. Example if it's been ran hard on the stock transmission an it grinds when shifting you could be looking at transmission issues later on. Do a compression check on all cylinders before buying, has trimming belt ever been changed, look at the head gasket does it look like it's leaked at all. These cars are a blast but be ready to work on yourself an if you wanna play you have to be able to play. I have 92 sitting in my garage waiting on me to spend more money on it. Somewhere around 350 to 385 h.p. tuned by Devon in Chicago because I did not plan things out better I'm replacing head gasket. Car ran awesome for a bit an then I learned a lesson. But it's not my daily driver it's a toy so down time don't kill me just passes me off. An with anything wheel an deal an get the lowest price. Good luck

    Thanks for the reply:
    Yes the looks of this one caught my eye (Minus the stickers). I would swap the headlights and tail lights back to stock and remove the blue stickers.

    This would be a daily driver for me (back and forth to work 8 miles round trip, and I would not be running it hard (all the time :D).
    As far as the maintenance; I plan on asking about all the maintenance records and if it looks and sounds good and drives good, I would be willing to wheel and deal the price down and replace the timing belt myself. (If needed)
