1992 Eagle Talon TSi Turbo 2dr Hatchback


Review

From the test drive on, I loved it. It's fast, fun, fun and fun. Just like a gorgeous girlfriend, I loved taking it out and showing it off. Boy, I was a proud man. After a couple of years, I noticed that the alternator just didn't keep pace with the demands of electronics. I've gone through about 5 alternators & about 10 batteries. I'm now on my third water pump. I'm actually happy that the original starter is still working. What I'm trying to say is, keeping up with maintenance on this car has been more than what I expected. This is especially true of the need to replace the timing belt at regular intervals. It's a fun car but being married to her takes a lot of work!


Best Features

Launch speeds, handling, fuel eco.


Worst Features

If you buying a used one, check to see when the last replacements were of timing belt, water pump, alternator, starter. This will save you some buyers remorse.

1992 Eagle Talon TSi Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD


Review

I've owned a Jeep xj 4x4, a Mazda mx-6 (v6) and the talon, and it is by far the fastest, most reliable, fun car to drive/own.

Review

Being that this car is 13 years old
things do go wrong. Bun if you are in
to making horsepower and excellent
handling, this is it. DSM's are some
of the most amazing cars cars built and
are fairly easy to modify for crazy
amounts of horsepower.


Best Features

The turbocharger and all wheel drive- train.


Worst Features

Would have been nice had it been about 1 inch lower to the ground and a tad bit wider wheel base for better cornering. Also, I don't know what Mitsubishi was thinking when they stopped production in mid 1992 on the 6 bolt motors and went to the 7 bolts. They should have just stuck with what works.

1992 Eagle Talon TSi Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD


Review

After 12 years and 133,000
fun miles, it is still a great car to
drive! Regretfully, I'm trading it in
tomorrow. It is using a little oil
now but otherwise is still purring as
when it was new. It has a great
throaty sound when the turbo kicks in
and pushes you back in the seat. It
loves the back roads but really slices
down the freeway, too. I know I'm
going to miss this car


Best Features

Fast, extremely responsive, good gas mileage. A pretty car, distinctive on the road. Absolutely no sign of rust or corrosion even after 11 years of Wisconsin winter salt. AWD handles extremely well in slush and snow, which was one of my principle considerations in buying the Talon.


Worst Features

Sound system was okay for 1992 but seems lacking today. Back seats weren't ever functional for anybody with legs or arms. But then I almost never had anybody try to ride in the back seats.

Review

The car is FAST, beautiful, and I
would say fairly reliable. I'm
impressed with the quality of workman
ship building it. Of course, every
car has it's problems and I have to
agree with a few people here that the
tranny, and the valve seals (burning
oil after idling for a while) have
been a major maintence job. All in
all, the car has been good to me and
I've been somewhat good to it cause I
love driving it hard. Again, I
wouldn't sell it. I had people
offering me $14,000 CAD for it 4 years
ago.


Best Features

Power, sound, performance, looks, and security I feel driving the AWD TALON. The car is mint, and I would have a hard time if I had to depart with it.


Worst Features

None really. Besides the few trouble I had when I bought it (tranny, hard time shifting from second to third and vise versa) The car has been really good. I did a valve seal job and second timing belt at 145,000km.
