Well I got the talon running today after 7 or so months, but not for long. After a 15 min warm-up, fluid-check, ect, I drove it home (tried anyway) 15 min down the road. I smelt burning oil or something. got off the highway and heard a "GIRGLE, GARBLE, BURGLE"-ing sound coming from under the hood. My temp was reading C on the dash. But obviously it was over heated. SO once a-F*CKING-gain. Its parked and not being driven. I think its time to hand it over to the dealership to fix, (and get ripped off). If its too much. I might have to leave the DSM domain for a while. Till I make $70,000 so I can at least afford FREAKING REPAIRS on this machine.
 
I feel for you man. I'm having the EXACT same problem. Throw Out Bearing went out - dropped tranny, fixed it. Took it out for a test drive, shifter linkage went bad - fixed it. Took it out for another test drive - she overheated, exactly as yours did.

Let us know how things go. *sigh* Probably the difference is that I only bought this car 2 months ago, payed $7100 for it - with the ASSURANCE that it was a completely reliable car - I'm considering towing the car back up to PA from the dude I bought it and leaving it on his lawn until he fixes it.
