1991 Eagle Talon 2dr Hatchback


Review

Sporty, zippy car. It's been very reliable for me and still running strong at 184,000 mi. Standard timing belt issues -- I didn't change at 75k when my mechanic told me to change and spent $1800 for my stupidity. At this age, finding a good source of used parts is key, as you will need to replace them.


Favorite Features

Very sporty feel, nimble. Both of my teens love driving this car.


Suggested Improvements

Interior designed for someone shorter. No cup holder. Some design issues weren't completely thought out (like emergency brake adjustment). No space to work in engine (belts are impossible to access).

1991 Eagle Talon TSi Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD


Review

Very nice vehicle. I've owned plenty of these in the pass and they've all been quite reliable. Of course that's if you can keep it in stock form. The mod bug can come in if you start.


Favorite Features

5spd manual AWD drivetrain. DOHC 2.0L turbocharged and intercooled. Very nice set up for some get up and go power without sacrificing driveability. AWD is great in the snow and rain. With snow tires, it's almost unstoppable.


Suggested Improvements

Transmission. Better shifting transmission. Maybe they should've went with the Mitsubishi Evo tranmission or at least the internal parts. The cupholder should've been in a better place. Hate havin to have the arm rest up just to have your drinks stay in place.

1991 Eagle Talon TSi Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD


Review

As of 2009 replacement parts are becoming next to impossible, electronic part failure may mean weeks with out a running vehicle. I purchased mine new in 1991 and loved it. But like having an elderly dog it comes time to put it down. "was" a great car.... If your looking at picking one up cheap, there's a reason its a good deal, you will be forking over money to your mechanic hand over fist.


Favorite Features

Body Style.

1991 Eagle Talon TSi Turbo 2dr Hatchback


Review

I Really enjoy this car, its not my 280zx but I enjoy it. great handles great, seats comfortable on the highway, gas mileage is ok. if you buy one of these things and it has less than 100k on it change the timing belt unless you have documented proof it has been done! you will be sorry if you don't!


Favorite Features

Engine, same engine as the new evo with a smaller turbo, (this means the evo manifolds and turbo fit this too!) great car to start with.


Suggested Improvements

Turning radius on this thing absolutly sucks. handles great but don't try to make any u-turns unless its with the e- brake! stock radio no good, needs more power! (will remedy that shortly...) wish they came in rear wheel drive...

Review

Overall this has been a great car! While it's not loaded with power, it's still fun to drive, handles very well.


Favorite Features

Corners well. Interior is very comfortable and it rides very comfortably for a sports car.


Suggested Improvements

Talking to others with the same vehicle and through my experience, the timing belt seems to go out between 80-100K miles. If you replace it, be sure you also replace the tensioner or you'll have the same problem again.
