I had a GSX once,and my friend had one also. Mine was a '90 his was a '97. Both cars were, absolutely, PHENOMENAL in wet weather. I could floor that car (and mine had a few simple modifications) and the tires wouldn't peel in the rain. I felt SO safe in that car. I really miss it.
The thing is, the build quality was junk. At around 90k it started falling apart; some computer thing that was to cost $1100, suspension work, tranny was weak, it was burning a bit of oil etc. THe car was only booked at $3000 I couldn't justify that much $ into it. The thing is, my buddy's '97 was the same way, and it was a new body style (the kind in this thread).
IMHO, mitsubishi makes crummy cars. Not just eclipses either.
Now I drive a Corvette, it gets awesome mileage and hsan't given me a single problem yet (65k miles). It's a '98. Best car I ever owned in many ways, gas mileage, handling, obviously accelaration. But... I suuuure wish it was AWD
