martymcfly Posted June 29, 2007 Posted June 29, 2007 Well, I'm getting my license in December, and I have to start deciding what to drive. My sister got a 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS last year, but I was thinking of getting a four-door sedan so that I can be more useful. My dad gave me a budget of around $30,000, so I am looking a new Nissan Altima (3.5 SL) or Maxima. But now that I think of it, the Eclipse is a decent car. It is pretty weak because it is the 4-cylinder model. The Maxima and the Altima are both over 250 hp while the Mitsubishi is 162. However, it would be plenty cheaper to keep the Eclipse. I figure that if I decide to keep the Eclipse, I'll get it repainted orange (it is currently white). How much would that cost? I figure I can convince my dad to pay for that if I save him so much by keeping the car. It is in almost perfect condition with about 6000 miles. Maybe I can also negotiate for some other performance or aesthetic modifications. What should I do? Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
