Hello Sunset and welcome to the Garage.
Finally got one of your own.
Purchased in June of 2018 to save fuel and as a reliable daily driver. Installed OEM Cruise and a few little things here and there.
Gets 45MPG with 50 happening fairly often. Enjoyable little car imo.
Nickname is from TMNT.
Day I picked it up
Added the OEM console an hour after I bought it.
Working OEM Cruise.
See thread here:
Mitsubishi Eclipse Hubcaps
Nice! Love that color
View my fuel log 2015 Mirage ES 1.2 automatic: 40.6 mpg (US) ... 17.3 km/L ... 5.8 L/100 km ... 48.8 mpg (Imp)
I will be adding the armrest. Looks great and I love that color, too!
Thanks for all the comments guys! I love the color too.
The more I drive the thing the more I love it.
I was going 80 down the turnpike without an issue, doesn't even sway like my sisters 15 does! Two big dudes in the car too!
I received 50.8MPG on my trip avg going to work this morning.
I filled it up for $15. The tank average for 320 miles was 43.6 mpg..
It's fun to drive...
If I have to complain about ONE thing, its the fact that the clutch has no feel, but either way is extremely easy to shift and shift perfectly smooth. That, and like alot of cheap cars, the shifter is notchy.
I ordered the clutch switch and new brake switch for adding OEM cruise too.
Did some research at a local junkyard with a fubar G4.
From all the previous deductions and now harness confirmation, I am 95% sure if I get a cruise steering wheel harness and button set from a 14/15 or maybe even a later one, my base 18 wheel will work.
The delete plate just unscrews, and the harness plug which in a base just has the horn ground, is the same as a 14/15.

I took my sisters 14/15 cruise switch out and it will 100% fit and look right.
But the even better news is this.
The 18s have the cruise wiring already.
Here is my sisters 2015 RF.
Here is my 2018 ES (Base)
And there is the green plug.
This is fantastic news.
Once I confirm this all works, I will make a forum post with the information. I have access to a etacs computer also.
Also, I personally don’t like the 18+ console front storage thing with the USB in it. It’s a subcompact car, I’ll take all the storage I can get. So at the junkyard I grabbed one of normal 14-17 console cubby’s.
Grabbed a 3 foot USB extension, some GAF tape, and ran the USB up to the glove compartment like it should be. The clips are even still there. Lol
And boom, much better.
Oh and I ordered a Cruise Switch, so we should find out if this works fairly soon.
