Selling a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse. The car has 164000 miles on it and drives very well. The car is located in Berkeley/Oakland, CA. Title status is clean.
Battery is NEW (with 3 year free replacement warranty).
The car was brought to CA from the east coast, so there is rusting. However, rear shocks are new (replaced in 2014). Tires (Continental PURECONTACT WITH ECOPLUS TECHNOLOGY -- THE BEST AVAILABLE TIRE) are in good condition; they have about 10,000 miles on them.
In the interest of full disclosure:
- the AC is not working; I do not know the reason. It may be that it needs recharging, or may be a bigger issue.
- I suspect the starter will need to be replaced soon.
- The Check Engine light is on and shows the following codes: P0401, P0455, P0335, P0135. These are all minor issues; contact me for details.
- There are some dents and scratches to the exterior. See photos for details. Because of the dents to the front driver's side, the driver's door doesn't open all the way, but it opens wide enough to easily enter/exit the car (see the last picture). It's not a major issue but causes the door not to stay open.
- There is a minor glitch in the locking mechanism for the drivers door. The lock mechanism works but in order to unlock the vehicle from outside you need to unlock the passenger door (unlocking the passenger door unlocks the whole vehicle).
- The trunk must be propped open with a pole, it does not stay open on its own.
- Car fax report lists three accidents by the previous owner. I have no information about how serious those accidents were.
To reiterate, none of these are major issues. The car drives very well.
For us the car has been pretty reliable and fun, the only unfortunate thing was the dent caused by someone in a parking lot. If you are looking at this item, it means that you know that the Eclipse of those years is one of the best fun cars for the money. It is sporty but just a 4 cylinder car and has good gas mileage.
