1998 Eagle Talon TSi Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD

Review

Spitzer dodge (Lakewood), the dealer who Chysler insisted I keep taking the car to for repairs to their incompetent warranty work never did repair all the car problems. The anti-locks don't work again, they damaged the wiring harness causing additional problems, feul guage doesn't read correctly, etc. They couldn't even adjust the alternator belt. You could here it in the showroomwith the car parked in the street and the service manager insisted that was normal. Engine and handling are good. Brakes have been serviced twice due to rotor surface peeling away.

Favorite Features

Fun to drive. Drive train is reliable aside from brakes. Works great in snow with Blizzaks as long as you keep it under 3000 rpm.

Suggested Improvements

Daimler Chrysler has convinced me that they don't care that they can't repair their products. (I have 2 TSI and 2 SL's) Service personnel need to be trained. Brakes are not up to snuff.
