1992 Eagle Talon TSi 2.2L turbo from North America
Great, if you have money to throw away.
Little things normally associated with wear and tear on a vehicle, such as brakes, hoses, etc., I won't mention.
The day after I got it, the clutch went out on a 4 lane highway!! Dealer tried to tell me that it went out because I didn't know how to drive it. Do you think maybe he was trying to take advantage of a woman?? Anyway, after 2 weeks and threats of litigation, (car under warranty with "bring it back guarantee") I got my little red monster back.
It was lots of fun until I took it to be inspected @ 78,000 miles. Wouldn't pass! Two different dealers couldn't find out why it wouldn't pass emissions test. Finally spent enough money to get a "waiver" sticker. Then I got a little letter from Chrysler about a recall on the timing belt. Had dealer replace it, got it home to find it revving like a funny car. Took it back. Timing belt was installed wrong!
Next a recall on transfer case, leaks oil and could cause accident...nice.
Spent the next year trying to figure out the emissions problem. Car wouldn't pass again. Finally a local mechanic said that the problem was that the timing belt had caused damage to the valves, and by then, I had put too much money into it to care! Goodbye engine!
Ladies, beware! I still love this car, but, just like a man, love won't fix it's problems!!
Lots of fun, power, great handling...
But, problems, problems, unless you're a mechanic!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
