I have a 1988 and it has been a great car no problems at all just basic maintenance. You must have bought a lemon car. I would buy another again.

I had an 89 model and it went through 2 tranmission changes in the first 36,000 miles due to low quality service and parts. I had other major problems like a rusted out heater core due to the airconditioning leaking water or not expelling it, that was like a $1300 repair in itself. The electronics on the car were crap too as the fuel gauge stopped working along with some other lights. I finally sold the car for $500 in 1999 when it had fewer then 85,000 miles on it. These were nice to drive cars, but the quality was worse then an 1985 Hyundai.

I have a 1988 I have 114,000 miles on it, Its the best car I ever owned, you did put 200,000 miles on it, so that means you got your money out of it, I thInk you should't be so hard on the POOR THING and IT's also 16 years old.

So please grow up. Please feel free to e-mail me waterboy97707@yahoo.com.

Thank You,

The second vehicle I ever owned was an 88. A horse and buggy would have been quicker and more reliable. Every imaginable part on this car broke.

Manual window crank

Wiper motor

Heater core

Fuel pump


#1 cylinder low compression due to improper oil distribution.

The transmissions were so poor in these vehicles that Chrysler had a plant producing trannys just for its used Eagles. Good thing most of the tranny's broke down before warranty ran out.

I did manage to get 65000 on this car before it found its resting place.

I have a 1988 Eagle Premier. I love the car, it rides nice and everything. Mine has only 112000 miles on it. I bought it from an elderly couple.
