Review of the 1997 Eagle Talon

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Sporty and inexpensive, the Eagle Talon costs less than many compact coupes.

  • Cons

    We're not crazy about the Talons new looks. The big emblem on the front fascia needs to be rethought.

  • What's New for 1997

    New front and rear fascias, bodyside cladding, bright new paint colors and "sparkle" wheels and wheel covers are guaranteed to attract attention to this overshadowed model.

Awesome car!

Vehicle: 1997 Eagle Talon ESi 2dr Hatchback

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.




Not bad.

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, including turbo.




Enjoyable

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 well.

Car is fun to drive, most DSM vehicles have a oil burn problem. Runs good and has great gas mileage, about 22 mpg city.
