1989 Eagle Premier L.X. 3.0 V6 from North America

Summary:

Lemon

Faults:

Had to replace rear brake cylinders and rear brakes, battery, and I will soon have to replace the front brakes because they warped when the back were inoperable.

All tires worn badly due to bad alignment and one day, while driving on freeway, car started shaking violently due to "split seams" in 2 tires. had to get all tires replaced.

I was concerned about the pickup of the car for a while, but took it into tire shop (where I got all tires replaced) and they checked my air filter and told me a rat had been living in it.

Had to get serpentine belt changed. need new heater core, antifreeze has been leaking into car from vents, also, I've been very dizzy lately had to stop driving it I just found out about leak and have been driving car for 4 months.

Windshield also fogs up.

Drivers side window off tracks.

General Comments:

For a V6, this car has no power. I can't even speed with this thing.

I wasn't expecting much out of a car this old, but I was expecting a car that would get me where I needed to go with minimal health risks, which it did not.

I bought the car for $999 and have put over $2000 into it in repairs. still not drivable.

This is yet another example of a reviewer who simply bought a cheap car thinking it was perfect. Why don't these people get inspections? I mean, I think even the most incompetent mechanic would have noticed evidence of a rat living in the car.

And ANY used car is a trade off. You pay less money up front, but things ARE going to break down over time, sometimes immediately if you don't get an inspection.

Summary:

Giugiaro, you're a wierd one.

Faults:

The heater core is broken. The car still heats, but pumps antifreeze into car, and when heaters not on, the windshield fogs up with antifreeze. Also, the front brakes are warped, so it brakes pretty rough. Both of these things were listed on the recall repair list.

General Comments:

This car sat for eight years and it started right up. The engine is extremely reliable, but very slow in picking up. I have to floor it, just to get out onto the street without getting tagged. :)

Summary:

Giugiaro, you're a wierd one

Faults:

The back brakes sprung a leak and so my for a while, I was only operating on my front brakes, which badly warped them because of the friction. I got back brakes fixed, but now the thing brakes pretty rough..., you know? also, I think the heater core is leaking, because if I don't have the heat on the front window fogs up badly. but if I do have the heat on, all of the other windows fog up badly, so what's more important?

General Comments:

It runs really well. it had sat for eight 1998 and it started right up when I bought it in '05. this car has really grown on me, like a fungus. it's also extremely slow to pick up, but when I hit 25, that's when the horse power kicks in. but I love the design of this car, and it's comfortable.

1989 Eagle Premier LX 3.0 Liter 150 HP V6 from North America

Summary:

Well worth the money and a Good project car

Faults:

Needs Transmission Repair (Pump Seal Replaced)

Runs kind of rough.

Headliner Dropped.

None of the windows work.

Hard to find place to repair car, and when you find one, its not cheap.

It has an alarm than no one has code to, so it takes 2 people to start car.

General Comments:

150 Horsepower V6 Engine.

It sat 5 years and when started, it started right up.

The comfortable bench seat layout in front and back gives more leg room.

The Automatic transmission shifter is on the steering column.

It has good looks like the Camry and Accord of the Era, but is roomier.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

EVERY Premier is a "project car"!

The reason it takes 2 people to start the car: one to sit inside and one to push! :)
