THEY STILL MAKE THEM!
The Eagle Summit is a Mitsubishi Space Runner also sold as Mitsubishi RVR, available as a 4x4 and 4x2. My Mitsubishi is 4x2. The new model is slightly bigger and a little more expensive.

Bought used in 1996 with 33000 miles on, $3400.00 Put in a set of half shafts and 2 head gaskets through the years. also I replaced front seals and timing belts, and drive belts plus usual maintenence. This car taught both my kids to drive. My son is still running it 113000mi.The body even stayed clean untill this year, rust started coming through. just about used up. Best car I ever owned.

Have a 1988 Eagle Summit with the 1.6 liter double overhead cam engine. It has 181,000 miles on it and just keeps going. The 4 spd automatic with the kickdown button gets the same mileage as the five speed manual. Great car will try for 200,000 miles.

I found mine at a gas station in the city. Was sitting in the lot for over a year, they could not figure out computer was shot. I paid 350 for the car. I replaced the front wheel bearings, then the rotors and calipers which seized from sitting so long. I travel 102 miles a day, six days a week, for the last four years with this car, I've got 186000 miles on her, runs like a charm and are you ready...42 mpg with the 5 speed. Its incredible, best car I ever had!!!

I bought mine from a used car lot for $750 @169,000 miles. Just had the first repairs done -- one year and 35,000 miles later -- and the mechanic called to tell me how great the engine is -- says he's sure it'll go to 300K. Can't wait. Wish I could find another for my son to drive.

1989 Summit has 190,000 miles on it. Auto trans was rebuilt about 30K ago. Gets high 20's mpg. Should get to 225K miles with no problems. Has 1.6 litre engine, rides, looks nearly new.
Do not let the timing belt brake! Will bend valves.
