1994 Eagle Talon ES 2.0 non turbo from North America
It's a great little 4 cylinder with balls
Well only a few things have gone wrong with my Talon.
First my torque converter blew from me revving my engine too high, trying to be a bad ass. It cost 750 dollars in part and labor.
Then at 152,000 miles, the timing belt snapped, causing my valves to bend. I had to get a used engine to replace it. The new one has 130,000 miles on it. It runs great now, but it cost 800 dollars altogether to fix it.
After that, the car ran great for three days until the alternator went out, and I had to get a new one that cost me nothing, but other than those problems, the car runs great.
This car is a great starter car.
But if you get one with high miles, prepare to pay some money for repairs.
The interior is great; kinda like a jet cockpit; it's awesome.
This thing's also got great pick up and top end speed for being an automatic.
I love my car; it's my baby.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Wow LOL, that's the same thing wrong with mine. I also own a 94 ES. First the timing belt key was going bad, so I had no power; I mean you could walk faster then it would move!!
Then the belt snapped after I got the key fixed, so I had my dad replace the valves.
Last the darn converter went cause I also was trying to show off!! It's now in the garage and hopefully it won't cost much to fix. The guy says I'm looking at 1000 to rebuild if that is what's really wrong with it.
I was revving up and pulled out; next thing you know it wouldn't move. It starts, but has no gears, and there's something spinning in it when you shut it off.
Other than these problems, I think it's a great car, and can't wait for my baby to be fixed!!
