Reviewers agreed that the 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse offers an excellent assortment of features that only lack in a couple of areas.

Features available on the 2008 Mitsubishi include cruise control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, air conditioning, remote keyless entry, and a 140-watt, six-speaker CD stereo, which, according to Cars.com, "plays MP3 files on CD-ROM discs." Edmunds.com praises the "unusual details such as door releases shaped like flip phones."

Again, the 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse takes the cockpit-style front seating area to the next level. Popular Mechanics reports that the optional "650-watt sound system [is] designed to compensate automatically for driving with the top up or down." However, Cars.com was somewhat surprised that "the car doesn't have an auxiliary input for connecting a portable player like an iPod."

Edmunds.com explains that the Sun and Sound option package includes "satellite radio, steering wheel audio controls, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, outside temperature display and compass"; and Cars.com notes that the Premium Sport Package for the GT coupe offers such luxurious touches as "heated leather front seating surfaces, automatic climate control, heated mirrors, aluminum pedals."

Surprising for a sporty car, the 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse shines when it comes to cargo space, offering an enormous 15.7 cubic feet of storage, and according to Edmunds.com, this is even "before folding the backseats."


Conclusion

The 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse offers a comprehensive package of features to fit the needs of almost all car enthusiasts minus the addition of auxiliary input for MP3 devices.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
