Performance is great as is aftermarket
support for this model, all weaknesses
have been found researched and most
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
SUN/MOON roof excellent
SEATS ARE SUPER COMFORTABLE
Appearance much more agressive than the
95 96 model or The 95-99 Eclipse.
Shave the front talon emblem on the
nose & decals on side.
Wish they had not deleted the skirts.
Crankwalk was issue in early 97 but
car will either be immune or have had
the short block replaced
The turbo loses efficiency at about 4k,
should have had a T28 or EVO 3 16g
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
The body design of the car is what me
fall in love with the car. It looks
tough and sleek. I also love my alloy
wheels and my low profile tires which
really add to the look of the car.
Although the car isn't real fast it
has great get-up-and-go.
My car has a spoiler on the back which
looks really nice but it tends to be a
big hazard for blind spots. I would
also change the turning radius of the
car. It is hard to get into tight
This car can kick it! I have the AWD
turbo and LOVE the performance! I live
in the mountains and love to test it
out as I'm never disappointed. ;)
I was told when I bought it to take
good care of it to avoid the previous
years problems and have. I have not had
ANY problems with this car yet.
You have to replace the tires more
often because they're performance,
therefore softer, but you CAN get an
all season that will last longer.
It can also haul a totally full car
load without difficulty.
The A/C does detract slightly from
performance, but not much.
This car turns heads! Its design is the
coolest! Most of all PERFORMANCE,
MILEAGE is still great, FUN and
comfortable. LOOKS:The Eagle on the
front and the tail(which does not get
in the way of your view). The wheels
look like they're going backwards in
Maybe make the base engine a bit
bigger so you can have every gadget on
and not have any effect. The turbo
takes care of that but...still.
I have owned my Talon since it was
new. These cars are very driver-
friendly and reliable. YOU CAN BUY
YOUR OWN TURBO FOR THEM AND MAKE MORE
POWER WHILE PAYING LESS FOR INSURANCE.
