1984 AMC Eagle DL 4.2 inline Six from North America
Tough, comfy, but sloppy handling
Brakes, shocks, front springs, tires are bald, hole in the gas tank, exhaust, carburetor.
I got this car for free while looking for a car for my friend. I've put about $100 into it and have driven it for a year. I love the leather seats. They are really comfy on long trips. The four wheel drive is awesome in the snow and mud. The carburetors on these cars suck big time. I replaced it with a carb from a 318 v-8. The choke doesn't work, but the engine will still start even when it is 10 degrees out. The quality is really good for an eighties car. The previous owner really neglected the car. The oil looked like it wasn't changed for like 30,000 miles. It was all dark and sludgy. The only things I have fixed on it are brakes, exhaust, and the gas tank twice. But it is leaking again. When it was fixed the car got really good gas mileage, about 25-30mpg.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
