Summary:

If they hadn't stopped making them, I'd definitely buy another

Faults:

Nothing major has gone wrong with the car since the day I got it. Only the usual replacement needs from wear and tear.

General Comments:

The thing I like most about this car is that it's comfortable and very reliable. It also get very good gas mileage (25 miles per gallon on average).

It handles pretty good and turns on a dime. Also great for parking in tight spaces.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I also agree. My 1989 eagle summit has been running for 13 years now, and this was after I bought it second hand after it had been in a crash. The car is extremely reliable and has gone through much, yet still runs in perfect condition.

I love my 4 door 1989 Eagle summit and my 1994 2 door. The 89 just turned to 72,000 miles and is running like it was new. The 94 my Daughter drives is also running like new, but don't know how much longer as she has already added 80,000 miles on it in just the last two years.

No problems with either car other than normal wear & tear, best cars I've ever owned as to long term and cheap on gas.
