Had one a while ago.

My buddy had a eagle talon that he recently bought with a "rebuild engine" only 600mi on it since. Well he owned it for about 3 days before it quit running. He called me and said it made a whirring noise when he tried to start it but the engine wasn't turning over. I went to check it out and saw his timing belt exposed he bought it like that so I immediately saw the belt wasn't moving when he turned it over. I pulled the bottom cover and the crank pully had rubbed the teeth off the belt. After we took the head off, suspecting bent valves, and sent it in to have it reworked. He got a phone call saying that one of the bolts that holds the exhaust cam looked like it was glued back together with jb weld! wft? I was amazed it made it 10 miles like that. He said he's not going car shopping without me anymore lol
