1995 Eagle Talon TSi AWD 2.0 turbo from North America
Great handling car, too expensive to repair and maintain
So many things have gone wrong with my car that I can't remember half of them.
Changed 3 out of 4 bearings.
Changed ball joints ($1800.00).
Changed timing belt & water pump.
Had to get the fuel system cleaned out.
Changed the oil light sensor.
In total I have spent over $7000.00 repairing this crappy car.
I love the how the car handles & drives. It is comfortable & fast.
After 6 years it is still an exotic looking car. Would never buy one again but I can't seem to get rid of it because I am addicted to the ALL WHEEL DRIVE (handles great in winter). I feel like the car was made for me because it suits me perfectly the way it drives & looks. Too bad I'm broke because of it
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

OK, what kind of gas did you use, and how do you drive it?

I'm in the same speed-boat, too. Add to your list a weak clutch, replaced with a Stage 1 racing clutch for $1500 and the brittle tranny which blew a throw shaft for 3rd and 4th, $1600 - and worst of all... rattles and squeaks!
Still, without a doubt, better than the average car all-around. I have also been rear-ended and had my nose torn and inter-cooler replaced under the insurance.
It seems to sit in the shop a month or more each year. I'm currently waiting 10 days so far for a nose/air-dam and decided to have the belts changed and W.P., bearings, pulleys and tensioners replaced at my cost. Aside from the clutch upgrade, my only out of pocket expense.
It's soon time to upgrade the suspension and add 80-100hp!
