    The Mitsubishi Eclipse Returns as a Crossover

    I saw that news via a post on Allpar. http://www.autoblog.com/2017/02/28/m...-geneva-97531/
    https://www.allpar.com/forums/thread...ssover.167062/

    For those of complained of a FWD Dodge Charger in the 1980s or the current 4-door sedan. Just imagine how Eclipse fans reacts to see the name recycled for a crossover.

    Never thought the XR4Ti's bi-plane spoiler would make a return.
    But there it is, sort of.

    Such a shame. The Eclipse was such a cool little car with its turbo 4 back in the day - for a decent price. I had three friends who owned them and loved them. They screwed up with the next Gen when they moved it to a V6 - and made it uglier.

    Mine has a 4-cyl and no turbos. They're the ones that last because except for the top they're no-tech cars.

    Highly Symbolic.

    Telling.

    Here lies a real 'Other SUV /CUV' victim.

    And yes.... it is a shame.

    It's been five years since the Eclipse ended production.
    Pretty long time ago to be considered a victim today.

    Poor Eclipse, this is Blasphemy. It is horrendous and needs a different name.

    Ex-Girfriend had one, I do not speak of her or her car.

    I used to beat that car to crap and it still kept going, not sure how I didn't fry the clutch.
