Review

Well I was given a 1998 Eagle Talon as a gift. Always look a gift horse in the mouth. Apparently the previous owner had drove it like he stole it. It needed a rad hose which was not a problem or a great expense but it also needed a new front axle on the passenger side. Easy change. Normally but not with the Talon. The axle was seized in the hub and as a result it had to be cut out and the hub had to also be replaced. That came to $300 plus a lot of time. Next I discovered that the front suspension was shot. I could not buy the parts locally and had to use the internet to find them. Also a part on the rear suspension was bent and I could not get it period. Had to straighten it.


Best Features

There are no Favourite features to this car. is nothing but a heap of CRAP. $50 bucks for scrap is too much to pay for it.


Worst Features

Take it to the nearest Car Crusher and watch it be turned into a CUBE.

Review

The car so far has done well. One common problem though, is the cracked head gasket (which is expensive to fix). My car has many extras so of course, there is more to go wrong. But so far, it's been a good car.


Best Features

VERY cold air and fun to drive.


Worst Features

Turning radius, sound system, and back seat space.

Review

My eagle talon is one of the best cars
I've owned to date. I love the style of
it and comfort of the ride too. The
performance for only having 140 horses
under the hood is great. I'm very
impressed and satisfied with my car. I
only wish they wouldn't have stopped
making them.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the exterior. It is a very sharp looking car.


Worst Features

The only thing I suggest is that they bring back the eagle talon. I know I'd buy one.
