1991 Eagle Premier Sedan ES 4dr Sedan


Review

My Grandmother bought the car and eventually it was passed down to me. At first I thought of it as a student car I could run into the ground, after many months of it surviving my abuse I found out about the rarity of this car. I have since then rebuilt it and wow, does it ever run well. The interior is very comfortable (might as well have lay-z-boys for seats) and the exterior offers a certain unique quality not found in cars today. I cannot wait until they declare this car a classic (read on it, it will happen) for that will be the time that I will laugh at the ones who called it the "granny car".


Favorite Features

Interior, rarity, driving capability.


Suggested Improvements

At times the engine will get a little hot, nothing turning on the heater cant help. The rarity of the car has offered many difficulties in finding parts etc. DO NOT PURCHASE IF YOU CANNOT SERVICE YOURSELF. This car is not for someone who wants an easy beginner car.

Review

As the title states, I feel the Premier was never fully appreciated by most owners, or dealers. My 91 ES was a bit of a contradiction...great handling, great ride, tons of room & comfort inside, but at the same time, if I didn't have any mechanical ability, cost of ownership would have been sky-high!! If you're looking for an unusual Euro-sedan, the Premier (in ES or ES Limited form) is a great choice....HOWEVER, if you want a reliable, easy to repair vehicle that darn near any mechanic can work on, look someplace else!! Chrysler dealers aren't any help either..they'd just as soon forget they sold the darn things as look at them, so beware....


Favorite Features

ride, handling, combination of power & economy,


Suggested Improvements

not that these matter, but educating the dealer base that sold & serviced Eagles would've helped A LOT!!! Sourcing a transmission ANYWHERE other than ZF might have helped as well...

Review

ScraI got the car for a birthday present on my 16th birthday. The problems with the car began on day 1. Aside from the constant overheating problems it had (which after 2 thermostats still occured), the alternator went 3 times, the battery 3 times, the wiper motor went, the windows didn't crank anymore, the backs of the seats were falling apart, the rims were defective (causing many flat tires), it was nearly impossible to work on due to the fact that nothing was accessible. Don't even think of buying this car.


Favorite Features

It looked nice, and had a lot of get up and go (*when it was running).


Suggested Improvements

Scrap the entire insides of the car, and work with the body.

Review

good car, plagued by electrical problems that escape dealership service department; but are simple repairs to a man that understands electrical issues like moisture intrusion. Connections are 99% of the problems I have had, and have never required the hundreds or thousands of dollars to replace parts as suggested by the dealer, clean and dry connections with die electric grease, made all the difference in each case - engine, speddo sensor, fuel tank sender, etc!


Favorite Features

Suspension, a car this size rides better than those that cost so much more...


Suggested Improvements

radio controls are hard to reach and small controls, that's my one suggested improvement aside from the fact that the dealer mechancis where never trained on this car or have a good understanding of millivolts or weather pack connectors!

The interior makes this car!

Improve the transmission and lifters, rocker arms, and push rods.
