eagle talon-originallly posted in wrong group
this is what I know so far....96 eagle talon...about 140,000 could be a less as 100k .supposedly needs a new head, radiator (damaged in a crash) and front fenders....and a paint job...that is just from a guy, a mechanic that was going to work on it..the radiator and fenders will come from a 97 mitubishi eclispe we have...any advice....not having a licenses mech work on it...someone who "fixes" up cars...from what i have read on this same subject...i should have a certifed mech give it a once over and let me know what is wrong etc.. I am afraid once we let them start fixing it up...other problems will arise....PLUS what about all the recalls i have seen on it...joints and engine problems....how do i know if it need to be fixed and was or was not....i have only owned a 89 toyota corolla brand new and now own a 97 geo prizm (a toyota in disquise i believe) and I am used to a reliable and easy to maintain cars...my geo has 190,000 and is in great shape and we maintain it well...any advise on this eagle talon......would be so much appreciated!!!! thanks!!!
