Purchased the car 01/24/09 it was leaking fluids, cutting off after driving on the expressway,and revving on it's on while in park. Took it into the place i got it from with my own list of things as well as a list of cars. They kept the car for several days and when i got it back it still did the same thing a week later. It stopped running 04/09 had to get it towed 3 times. Got it towed to the place i got it from and they kept it for about 2weeks and the problems are still there except it starts now but it has other problems as well and i have to make payments on it every month. They are also charging me a arm and leg when they knew the car had problems in the first place. I also took it up there before then and they kept acting like i had to leave it for them to fix it and i didn't want to do that because the other times they kept it didn't get fixed. Whatever they are doing it only last for a week or 2 then it breaks down again and they are charging me double the bluebook value.

The contact owns a 1993 eagle summit wagon. The contact stated that the front seat belt anchorage system failed in the vehicle.

As a result, the cable could drop out of the chamber with the shoulder belt anchorage becoming stuck. The manufacturer stated that the part that was needed was no longer being produced. The failure and current mileages were over 100,000.

1996 Eagle Talon - 4E3AL54F0TE- Idaho Falls, ID: March 8th, 2006
The transfer case went out of my talon tsi awd turbo in 06/05. I was driving down the road 75 mph & bang! -jerk! Bang! Jerk! Bang! Jerk! The steering wheel also felt funny, like it got loose and wasn't hooked to the tires anymore. I pulled over the and heard a loud clunk (metal on metal sort of sound) and put it into gear to baby it into work, it made more noises and jerks but seemed to run. I could smell a burning smell so i parked. The shop picked it up and could not find anything wrong with it. They asked if i was sure i knew what i was talking about! I had driven the car for 90000 miles! I knew what wasn't normal! I picked it up and guess what, it ran great! I speeded up and slowed down again and again and it just wouldn't act up! I could faintly smell the burning smell but figured i picked up some piece of something off of the road and it had been stuck but fell out when i stopped. I went for 50 miles, no problems, then the banging and jerking started again much worse this time. I kept going to see if it would stop and it got so loud that it sounded like a sledgehammer was hitting some part of the engine over and over. It would bang-jerk- bang -jerk etc.. And kept getting worse. Then it just died. The shifter went slack. There was a puddle of oil under the car and the smell of burning fluid. The mechanic picked it up and replaced the transmission/transfer with a used one. I'm wondering if this was the transfer case and not the transmission at all! The mechanic said there wasn't enough oil in the transmission. I didn't know if the transfer case and transmission share the same oil supply or not. After reading this article about the locking up thing it makes perfect sense. Its felt just like it wanted to lock up but for some reason didn't that first time it acted up. The transmission place said they hadn't heard of a transmission banging and clanging like that. *jb

1996 Eagle Talon - 4E3AK54F4TE- Glendale, AZ: September 29th, 2005
I went through emissions and failed because there was an obd error saying that my check engine light is on, however it was not. I called to the state emissions board and they said it was a recall. I took it to the dealership, at the end of may and it has been in and out ever since trying to fix this recall. It has now been in the dealership consequently for two months. The dealership has told me more than once that they are going to do one more test and then if it fails they will call chrysler and tell them it can not be fixed. But every time they do the test and it fails they end up doing the tests over and over again. I actually had to purchase a vehicle so i would have a car to drive to and from home work school and dr's appointments. I am 8 moths pregnant right now and on bed rest and my doctor is saying i do not need all this extra stress. I called the manufacturer three times whom tells me all i can do is continue to work with the dealership. I have spoken with the general manager of the dealership and same thing, no answers. The general manager actually told me to get a lawyer. I have wrote the better business bureau and now i am writing you. I do not know what else i can possibly do. Please help me!! *jb

1995 Eagle Talon - 4E3AK54F8SE- Lafayette, CO: September 27th, 2005
I own a 95 eagle talon and brought it to pro jeep eagle in early summer. The staff replaced the drivers side but stated the passenger side was not in need for replacement. I disagreed. This morning as i pulled out of my driveway and into the street, before getting 100 feet my front end fell to the ground. The ball joint broke. I called the dealership and they said they were not responsible, again i disagreed. This could have been a wrongful death. Auto recall date: apr 05, 1999 vehicle component: suspension:front:control arm:lower ball joint. *jb

1998 Eagle Talon - 4E3AK24Y2WE- Philadelphia, PA: September 15th, 2005
On aug. 24 2005 purchased an eagle talon(1998)the day we bought it the car wouldn't start. The sales rep messed with some wires and it started. We got it home the following day it wouldn't start. Our mechanic had to replace some of the wiring. The next thing that went was the clutch cables. The same day the cables were replaced the brakes started acting up. We took it to the mechanic and they found that the entire brake system had to be replaced. Someone had put power steering fluid in the master cylinder,which ruined the system. The mechanics are willing to make the statement that this damage was done before we bought it. The car was supposed to be inspected the day before we bought it,that can't be true because the damage would have been noticed. The rotors were so thin that they cracked,they were cracked when we bought it. *nm
