Turbo, AWD, leather! A great sports
car for a Canadian climate. With some
modifications, this car would beat
nearly anything on the road. Amazing
handling in the snow. Very fun to
drive an very reliable despite
thrashing the car every time behind
the wheel. Very easy to modify to
increase hp. Sweet turbo whistle
followed by huge power.
Turbo made mountain driving
incredible - just set the cruise and
pass V8s struggling to get up the
grades. Very easy to mod to 300+ hp.
AWD got this car through many Canadian
winters. Nothing like AWD and turbo to
give predictable winter handling.
Better build quality. A bit more rear
head room would be nice. Very little
trunk room due to AWD - but it is a
sports car right?!?
178,000 miles and still has a load of
ZIP!. Plus really decent fuel mileage,
especially for the power it puts forth,
C'mon 2L's competing with 5.0 Fords!
Word of warning though is for finding
mechanics for anything really, everyone
seems to not want to work on it in
small towns, and when you do find a
place that will... it will cost too
much, so if you find one you like,
check out the things you want first...
ie:Air conditiong, etc...
Looks, Fuel Mileage, 190 Horses, tar
Less expensive way to replace air
conditioning components, add a cup
holder, (deep ones)!!!
I've owned my Talon for 4 years now,
and am really happy with the
performance of the car, and it's
reliability. It's a ton of fun to
drive in all weather conditions, and
still looks good 14 years after it was
first released. I have replaced the
turbo, not an inexpensive thing to
replace, but other than that, no other
