LeMons Torture Test Results: Mitsubishi

We've been quite shocked by how utterly, horribly terrible Mitsubishis have been in the 24 Hours Of LeMons. Eclipse, 3000GT, Talon, Colt, whatever, it's spent more time in the pits than on the track. Won't someone find a reliable Starion and race it? We totally want to see a Starion take the overall win! » 1/17/10 10:00pm 1/17/10 10:00pm

Eclipse Dockable TomTom Head Unit Now Available

I know, I know, you were jealous of Europe and especially its Toyota Yaris with dockable TomTom GPS navigation head unit. You can breath a sigh of relief because Eclipse has taken that idea and made it available for anybody! Hooray! » 3/07/08 4:45pm 3/07/08 4:45pm

Chicago Auto Show: 2009 Mitsubishi Eclipse

2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse SE: But Will It Block Out the Sun?

Will a large airfoil wake up interest in Mitsubishi's Eclipse? Perhaps not as much as would an AWD Evo package producing upward of 400 hp. But that's not in the cards.

No Starion From Mitsubishi: Eclipse Spyder, Concept-CT Instead

No doubt, Bumbeck's weeping in his cranberry juice right now, as his pleas to Mitsubishi to bring back the beloved Mitsu variant of the StarQuest twins have fallen on deaf ears. However, they did introduce what they refer to as an "attainable exotic" in the form of the Eclipse Spyder. Because the Solstice is… » 1/09/06 12:39pm 1/09/06 12:39pm
