1981 AMC Eagle SX4, 4.2L inline 6 cylinder motor with auto transmission and all wheel drive. Runs and shifts good. Carb has been rebuilt recently, along with replacing most vacuum lines. Just replaced upper ball joints and control arm bushings, lower control arm bushings, and sway bar links. Heat works great, A/C was retrofitted for R-134 and worked great last summer. Cruise control works. Exterior is in good shape, was repainted AMC Big Bad Orange about 5 years ago. Also had Ziebart undercoating from the factory, so it doesn't have any of the common rust problems underneath. Interior is in good shape, there is one crack on the dash panel. Has a Grant steering wheel. Hood release handle is not broken like a lot of Eagles (common problem) and still functions properly. It does have a few issues: needs a new headliner, driver's window switch needs to be pressed hard to work, needs rear hatch struts, the plastic rocker panel is cracked near rear wheel (see pic), and it could use new front shocks. Odometer reads just shy of 107K miles, but quit working about 6 months ago on me. Has been garaged all winter, just pulled it out about 2 months ago to change the oil and drive it around a bit. I don't drive the car daily, so it has had very few miles put on it since the odometer quit working. Overall, this is a very nice Eagle with no rust, and mechanically sound. I also have it for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end the auction at any time if it sells locally first. Buyer to make shipping arrangements. $500 non-refundable deposit due at end of auction. Full price to be paid, along with shipping/pickup arrangements to be made within 7 days of auction end. Any other questions, feel free to ask. Thanks.

After watching the Tata Nano post sales numbers smaller than its engine displacement, Renault gave up on its much publicized intention to build a truly inexpensive car to rival it. Then, a month ago, reports emerged that Renault was resuming work on a couple of low-priced cars for emerging markets, but this time it would work with its in-house partner, Nissan. That plan envisions an offering for €3,000 ($3,888 US) and another for €5,000 ($6,400 US), both of which would be more spendy than the Nano but might avoid the charge of being cheap - and nasty - and instead be considered affordable.

A report in Reuters talks to the man in charge, Gerard Detourbet, who has been in Chennai, India since at least August working on the program. Detourbet led the Dacia Logan project and is considered "Renault's low-cost car specialist" and "the father of entry-car programs." This one is reportedly codenamed A-Entry and will create a "'sub-entry' architecture" that will provide roominess beyond the vehicle's price and class, and use an engine with a displacement of 800 cubic centimeters.
It isn't aimed at the Nano, though - it means to take on the products that make up 45-50 percent of India's car market, like the Maruti Suzuki Alto and Hyundai Eon. According to Reuters, out of the 2.6-million-strong Indian car market the Maruti Suzuki line-up alone nabs one million registrations annually. The Alto 800 begins at 244,000 rupees ($4,440 US), the Eon at 300,000 rupees ($5,559 US), the Chevrolet Spark at about 316,000 ($5,750 US); if Renault can nail its price targets it will just about bracket those three and be right in the game.
The Detroit News is reporting that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened an investigation on the 2006-11 Suzuki Grand Vitara and 2007-11 Suzuki SX4 due to issues with the airbag and seatbelt for the front passenger seat. So far, NHTSA has received 128 complaints on these vehicles for airbag warning lights, airbag off lights and seatbelt lights, on a vehicle set that totals around 205,000 units, but there is no indication as to how many, if any, injuries have reported.

Via technical service bulletins, Suzuki has already acknowledged two airbag-related issues with front passenger seats on both vehicles, including a programming error for the passenger seat load indicator on 2009 models and an open-circuit problem for the sensor mat that determines if an adult or child is sitting in the front seat. Since this latter issue would not shut off or lessen the impact of the passenger airbag, Suzuki has already extended the warranty for the seat cushion bottom to 10 years or 120,000 miles. After ceasing new-car sales in the US and Canada, potential recall repairs (which still may or may not happen) would be handled by remaining dealers as laid out in the recent court-approved bankruptcy plan.
It's pretty much a done-deal now, folks. A US bankruptcy judge has approved Suzuki's plans to wind down its operations in the States. As part of Suzuki's Chapter 11 proceedings, its automotive unit will cease to exist in the US, leaving the motorcycle, ATV and marine units to function as Suzuki Motor of America.
It's not clear how many vehicles are left on the 219 remaining Suzuki dealership lots - the company reported sales of 1,764 in February - but the automaker has assured customers that warranty service and parts will remain available. Suzuki made an investment of $45 million to ensure its past and current customers aren't completely left in repair-work limbo.
Check out the complete announcement from Suzuki below for more information, and please join us in mourning the loss of the Kizashi sedan and SX4 hatch, two vehicles we are legitimately going to miss when this whole sordid affair is done and over with.
