I know absolutely nothing about cars, but IMO, the eclipse looks cool/somewhat unique. And it's Mitsubishi, which sounds cool as well.

sounds like your friends car has had some work done to it. any warrantys on the motor? has he ran the piss out of it? spoilers on a front wheel drive car are pretty pointless for an everyday driver also lol.

actually, i ride w/ him alot, and he never even does the common "5-10 mph over the speed limit" that everybody else does. aside from reving it up really loud a few times, he has never dogged this car. hes taken good care of it, imo.

nope. he drives quite granny like, actually. i mean, he takes off from red lights w/ considerable accelration, but he never peels away from a red light or anything. he never drops from neutral to drive, btw.

Eclipses are pieces of ****. I would trade in a heartbeat.

alright, first of all...is the exhaust and spoiler...gay? like fart can exhaust, that's just the tip, not full catback or anything, spoilers on civics are generally a no, and the wheels...do you liek them? Basically, it sounds like a large bowl of uncle bens to me, but if you like it, then go. Usually the B series motors in civics are more sought after for their tunability, as well as the Vtecs. Their both auto, so your not getting anywhere with that. is the eclipse 4WD? what do you think of the interior space, trunk space. does your car have any reliability issues? does his? honeslty, mitsus tend to have crankshaft issues, mainly from being driven hard, and Hondas have proven to be more hardy cars...it's your choice. Do you want to trade because of looks, or do you want a more reliable vehicle? Cause i like the look of the eclipse better, but i'd probably take the civic for reliablity.
