Mitsubishi offers impressive warranty coverage on all of its cars, including a five-year/60,000-mile basic warranty. The Eclipse also comes with a ten-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

Some reviewers think the Eclipse is capable of providing such a lengthy warranty because they don't anticipate drivers using it. As Motor Trend explains, the Eclipse GT "proved not just reliable, but faultless." Over the course of their long-term test, "its service history was limited to two mandated dealer visits (at the 7500- and 15,000-mile points). Oil and filter changes, inspections, tire rotations, the usual."
