I owned this car from 1998 until 2005. The 1993 model TSi had the stiffest suspension of any LH sedan and was actually de-tuned the following year because most drivers found it too stiff. The Eagle was designed to be the "sport" model vs the Intrepid and Concorde. My TSi could corner better than my 1984 Toyota Supra. It was the best car I ever owned. It was a combination sports sedan, luxury sedan and family sedan. The fully loaded model had absolutely everything cars twice the price had like the trip computer. These LH sedans saved Chrysler at the time because they were incredibly reliable and multi- functional. You could drive your kids to school safely and take a corner like a sports car.
The trip computer, infinity sound system, traction control, ABS brakes, incredibly large back seat, superb road hugging ability, 28 MPG on the highway...I'm presently driving a 1999 Jaguar XJ8 and it reminds me of my Eagle Vision TSi, seriously!
Some were notorious for transmission problems. Mine was trouble free. If Chrysler had cars like this today, they might have saved them again.
I've had my car for 7 years now and love
it. Never had any problems with it just
keeping up with the oil changes, brakes,
fluids, etc which I do all myself. The
car hugs the curves and doesn't do that
rolly polly thing. Well, for me the gas
mileage is good. Since I drive lots of
long country roads I get 26mpg.
My ratings are higher, but I agree with
the other comments. Bought the TSI when
it was 4 years old with 50K and I now
have 141K 7 years later. I've had
problems with A/C (3 times), water pump,
catalytic converter, and CD player.
I've replaced the struts, battery, and
tires once. I've had two brakes jobs
including rotating rotars. With all
this, I don't remember having an 11 year
old car with so few maintenance items.
I have no plans to sell it. It's still
my daily carpool car.
This car averages 24 mpg and can exceed
30 mpg on the highway. It's fun to
drive, peppy, comfortable, large, and
sporty looking. The stereo is great.
It's the best car I've ever had. I've
owned 3 Nissans, 1 Honda, 2 Toyotas, 2
Fords, 1 Buick, 1 Pontiac, 2 Chevys, and
A/C reliability, headlights are weak,
and too much interior plastic. Improve
the grade of the leather seats.
It was a program car. I drive in
carefully, but have had to have the
front end worked on 2x for rattles. 2
water pumps that were covered under the
7/70. This is what bothers me, the
stereo went out, yes thats right. Never
happened to me before ever. Repainted
in bright platinum color, the light
driftwood faded bad and Chrysler knew
it because I only paid 25% of the cost.
They also gave me a lifetime warranty
on the new paint job. All in all I have
had it 7 years and it has been a very
good car, never left me stranded anyway.
Good gas mileage for a big car with a
214hp motor. Very good looking car in
bright platinum color. Great climate
control system and a great Infinity
Less plastic interior. Stronger front
end design. Lack of downforce on the
rear makes it seem too light in the
year, heavy up front. Heavier braking
system, ABS will come on too frequently.
I bought this because I needed a bigger
car than my Grand Am. The Eagle has
had some reliability problems,
specifically the A/C. The same
problems seem to recurr every 40k miles
or so. At first I had an extended
warranty to 100k so I didn't care too
much. More lately, it has cost me more
to fix. There is a recall on the fuel
I must say that for the purpose (large
car to haul a family) it has done very
well. We take long trips with 2 adults,
a baby, and 2 teenagers without feeling
cramped. The trunk is huge. The
stereo sounds great (Infinity). The
leather seats are comfortable.
Powerful for its age and size, quite
good handling overall.
Headlights are too dim, the wipers skip
above 70mph and there is a lot of road
noise. Reliability is only fair.
