2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse Review

Big style plus big performance equals maximum thrill. The 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse is the physical embodiment of a lifestyle that demands form and function beauty and technology. With the available 263 horsepower 3.8 liter V6 it anticipates desires and exceeds expectations. The platform and body rigidity keep the Eclipse composed at any speed and the sport tuned suspension with MacPherson struts in the front and low mounted multi tiered struts in the rear gives the Eclipse sharp precise handling to master any road. Eclipse has you covered with a six airbag system. Eclipse’ interior envelopes the driver. The available heated six way adjustable leather toped seats cradle. The unique gauge cluster informs. Design flourishes abound and the 650 watt Rockford Fosgate audio system fills the interior with a serious punch. The 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse you’ve practically lost your license just looking at it.
