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.

Vehicle: 1997 Eagle Talon TSi Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD

Being a previous owner of DSMs, this is by far the best one ever built. Not only is it a competent handling car in dry weather, it handles even better in inclement weather. It's a little loud at anything above 60mph, and there are a few rattles in the interior, but what do you expect for a 10 year old car. The turbo spools nice and quick, never leaving me itching for power. The ride is one of the best for a sport coupe of it's caliber. The fact that it can hang with cars costing thousands more, and still return excellent fuel economy, makes this a great car!

Great car fun to drive fast as anything. Easy to put engine mods on for major hp gains.

Vehicle: 1997 Eagle Talon TSi Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD

I bought it after one drive because of the stability of the AWD and the mid range power. I've gotten over 30mpg on the highway. It gets it's best mileage at about 80. With the leather and all the options it is an elegant car that is always fun to drive.

Vehicle: 1997 Eagle Talon TSi Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD

This is an amazing car. Mine crankwalked on me, but its getting fixed because I couldn't get rid of it. This thing is kind of heavy, and you feel it on an autocross course. It's pretty quick in a straight line and corners well, but in a slalom you can feel its weight. It is very comfortable to ride in (3 people and luggage, 5 hours to Ocean City, nobody complained) and gets decent gas mileage (about 28, hwy), but it drinks 93 octane. This is a great car, aside from the crankwalk issue, and I've recommended the TSi AWD or Eclipse GSX to several people.




Excellent performer/ minor flaws

Vehicle: 1997 Eagle Talon TSi Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD

Performance is great as is aftermarket support for this model, all weaknesses have been found researched and most corrected. DO NOT PUT CHEAP TIRES or SUPER SOFT RACE RUBBER on these cars, they do eat tires up with the AWD, heavy weight, and power. The turbo is a little too small for maximum performance at high RPM,however it is more than enough for any commute,and provides Jet Fighter like thrust at low speeds (15 -45 mph) in traffic for excellent passing. about 30 mpg on highway at 80 mph
