I'm considering buying a 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse. It has 79K miles, 4 cyl engine, automatic trans and from all appearances has been left totally stock. The only obvious things wrong with it are, the A/C doesn't work and there's a few tears on the plastic facia. Other than that it doesn't look like it's had too hard a life. With 79K miles, my guess is the timing belt is about due to be changed. Is that something that's possible by a fairly experienced mechanic or is it a "dealer only" job? Is there anything '03 Eclipses are noted for that might make me want to stay away from this vehicle? Thanks for your time.
have the same problem?
