This is a fantastic car! Not only is it fun to drive, but it is a head turner. I have had more compliments on this car than I have had on any other car I have owned. I haven't had any major repairs on this car. It has been very dependable. I love driving it. It is red with the black roof & spoiler, which is very sharp. I haven't seen very many on the road, & when I take it in for oil changes, the mechanics tell me they have never seen one in such good condition. I will keep this car until it just won't go anymore. I now have 55,000 miles on it & expect to put a lot more miles on it before it dies. I was disappointed to hear that 1998 was the last year for this car.

This car is the most fun car I have ever driven. I have never gotten stuck in the snow with this car. It handles the road wonderfully. It takes curves with ease. When I bought the car, it had 10,000 miles on it. Now it has 55,000 miles on it, & no problems. I will keep this car forever! I have never loved a car like I love my Eagle Talon Esi! This is truly an awesome car. I have had more compliments on this car than any other car I have had. It is definitely a head-turner. The black roof & spoiler & red body is a great color combination.

Most people don't like these cars, think
they are not reliable. They are
reliable, and a great platform for
upgrades, they just require a little
more maintenance then most other cars.
All in all, these cars are great, i'm a
big fan of DSM cars, and Talons have
great stlying and performance. The 420a
engine is a great platform for upgrades,

This was my first brand spankin' new
car and it's been the best car that I
have owned. I have had no major
problems with the car since the 6
years that I have owned it. It could
use a paint job but other than that
my car is still like new. The car is
very fun to drive and handles the road
