1989 Chrysler Conquest TSI 2.6 turbo
Very unique and sporty
There has been absolutely nothing wrong with the car. I have only had it since May of 08 though. I put about 300 miles on it this Summer.
I saw this car 10 years ago when I was 18. I worked on a golf course and a co-worker who was retired drove it into work one day. He had bought it brand new and it still looked like he just drove it home off the lot. I was in love with it right there. I was broke at the time so I called him 10 years later and it still only had 43,000 miles on it. He was reluctant, but sold me the car for $5400 dollars. He has the original sticker off the car showing it had a price of $20890 back when he bought it.
It is in mint condition, still looks brand new. He took exceptional care of it and I plan to do the same.
This car is extremely fun to drive and even better to just look at. I have had a few people offer to buy it off of me, but would never sell it. It wasn't as fast as thought it would be, but handles so well that you can get going pretty well on winding roads.
If you see one for sale, I would buy right away.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I gave it all I could this last weekend and could only get it up to 130. It seems like I can't get any boost past 8 on the gage though. I'm not sure why!

You should check the turbo and make sure it's spooling right. You should see 12 psi of boost; have it pulled and cleaned, and check all oil lines. Remember the turbo waste gate as well may have road debris and grime in it, so also check and clean that.
Don't forget, let it warm up 2 minutes before driving it, and 2 minutes before shutting down. What this does is make sure that the turbo has plenty of time to be oiled and cooled down. Thanks, call if you wish and still have the car my name is Paul. Hope to hear from you 765 524 7573.

I had a 1989 metallic blue Conquest brand new when I was 22... Man, did I love that car.
