1993 Eagle Summit ES 1.5 Ltr from North America


Very fast, dependable and nice looking car


Timing belt broke (not replaced on time)

Seats wear quickly on outside edges.

Rebuilt the engine at 200k as a preventative measure.

General Comments:

This has been the most reliable car I have ever owned. I am extremely hard on vehicles.

The first problem was due to my negligence. (I didn't change the timing belt on time)

The result was bent valves galore. Fortunately the pistons were spared.

I took this little car from east coast to west and back. It's extremely fast for a small motor! I have a ticket to prove it! 250kph!! I have hung up my racing gloves it got too expensive.

I have recently rebuilt the engine it cost about $300Cdn not bad for another 200k! I put Slick 50 in the motor after it was broken in and the wear was very minimal inside the engine. If the timing belt didn't break it would still be going strong!

I recently bought a second one for my wife to drive. It's used, but I have great faith in this little car.

1993 Eagle Summit DL 1.3? from North America


Old, banged up, but still reliable


Hood latch broke while I was driving on a highway, sending my hood flying at my windshield at 55mph.

Trunk latch/lock broke.

Glove dept door jammed.

Transmission & Clutch went out on me at the same time.

General Comments:

Seeing as how I bought the car 5 years after it had been made, I really cannot complain too much. I've had it now for a little over 3 years, and while I've put more money into it than I wanted to... overall it has been quite reliable as I make frequent trips out of state and thus the reliability is always important. It does get great mileage on the hwys. Not much more sportiness or room. But if you are looking for a fairly cheap economy car that is relatively reliable, Summit is the one. ONLY - if you check the history to see what's already been taken care of. Otherwise you might be setting yourself up for trouble.

1993 Eagle Summit LX 1.8 from North America


This is one awesome car for reliability and a great bargain.


I bought this car from a used car dealer. I got a great deal. Since I have had my 1993 Eagle SummitLX Wagon, I have had only normal maintenance to do until this week. In the passed 3 years all I have replaced were tires, brakes, thermostat, and had oil changes. I can only say I love this car so much I am about to spend $875 for a new distributor because we cannot find a used one anywhere. I don't understand why they quit making these except the insurance is outrageously high. I didn't mind paying for it for what I got. My friends and family all love my car as well. With children to haul around it has been a Godsend. I LOVE MY LITTLE RED BUGGY!

1993 Eagle Summit 1.5?? from North America


Try to avoid buying one!


This was a junker if there ever was one. I had so many problems with this car and I believe it had Mitsu engine parts that were the cause. The tires made this loud popping noise when you turned, the engine sounded like a lawnmower no matter what I had done to it.

General Comments:

Disaster... I've heard that all of Eagles cars were this bad and I believe it.

I'm finding it real hard to get parts for mine. Any suggestions. Besides the junkyard. Can't find them there either.

Re: 1993 Eagle Summit DL 2DR:

A runner. I've dented it up over the past 9 years, and the interior hasn't held up terribly well - the vinyl fell apart and the cloth is worn out on the driver's seat. I'm looking for a good-quality replacement. And the rail that allows the seat to move is rusted/worn.

Mechanically, it has been good. I bought it for $9300 Canadian. Overall a good investment. Low maintenance costs (mind you, low mileage - 55,000).

Manual transmission is getting a little worn, but the clutch is fine. Motor is good! - 1.5L, enough pep for city driving.

Handles well enough with rack and pinion (I believe) and front-wheel drive is OK. Get good-quality tires - it'll help.

It's a little noisy on the highway (I don't really mind). Headroom is good (I'm 6'2").

Stylistically, it has held up. It was the first year of the new design, and, for the money, I still think I got a smart-looking car (colour's no help - sort of a weird blue).

Worst feature has got to be the rubber moldings that keep road-noise out. They're really poorly made. And the step-plates (also reduce noise) are wrecked (cheaply, cheaply made).

You get what you pay for with this car, in my opinon.

Eagle summit transmission went out the second time looks like it would be best to part out?Every thing is good engine fine at wits end any answers?

Yep I do have some comments... I have my own car, I'm only 17, and that my car, which is Eagle Summit 1993, and my car doesn't have any problem... except for that automatic belt... it sometimes opens when the door opens...
