1998 Eagle Talon TSi TSi Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD


Review

Got this car about a year and a half ago and it's thrown the power steering belt 8 times and it's gotten to the point where I can't rely on the car to get from point a to point b. Doesn't help that I had to replace the clutch 2 months after purchasing the car. Definitely would not buy another.


Best Features

Fun to drive and is fairly comfortable.


Worst Features

Car needs to be more reliable so that I'm not shelling out $200 a month to fix something that goes wrong with it.

Review

I owned a 1992 Eagle Talon from '92-97 and have hated myself ever since for trading it in (family, big cars, no fun). Never wanted another sports car (not a car dude, but LOVED the Talon styling - especially the bump on the hood). Talon always had more aggressive body styling than its 'twin', the Eclipse. To make a long story short, recently I was in the market for a new car, and, just for fun, I Googled for the ultimate (style-wise) Talon - the 1998. Found my dream car 100 miles away in NoCal, Turbo, Red, only 37,000 miles (!!!) Had no idea how rare it was (only 4307 made!) - I bought it the next morning. Driving is FUN AGAIN! It was like getting re-acquainted with an old friend.


Best Features

1. Styling - The '98 is the coolest looking because the WIDE shark mouth and angled 'half-ring' spoiler ROCK! Best styled Talon or Eclipse EVER made - and rarest. Bump on the hood (of course). Generations 3 & 4 have no bump. 2. Handling and performance. A+++++ Feels rock-solid.


Worst Features

None. The 1998 Eagle Talon, the rarest and last of this series, was a 'Homerun' for the designers. No Eclipse ever came close to matching it in styling, and the Gen 3 and 4 Eclipses are different cars. What can I say? Since 1998 its been my "Dream Car" and now - I FINALLY GOT MINE!!

Talons are the greatest! They are the
most fun to drive and one of the nicest
looking cars! I wish that they were
still being made today.


Best Features

Speed, body style


Worst Features

needs more room inside, other than that...the car is perfect!

1998 Eagle Talon TSi TSi Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD


Review

I bought this car with 72 000km on it. I
bought it because the km's were so low.
With so little km's, there's nothing
that can go wrong with it. The AWD
system is amazing!!!!! It has saved me
from a few accidents (or at least REALLY
close calls). You'll appreciate the LSD
if you drive in snow or bad weather like
we do lots up here in Canada. . If you
are trying to buy one, look for one with
km's under 100 000 and with no
performance upgrades. Trust me TALON's
are great cars. To get this type of
performance, looks and features, you'll
have to buy a BMW or Lexus. I ve owned
many cars before and the TALON by far
tops them all off!!! Buy one while you
still can.


Best Features

My favorite features include the sleek styling of the car, the comfy cloth seats (leather would be nice though), and how well this car handles.


Worst Features

The back seats could be bigger, and the car should come with a stock turbo timer. Other than that, there is nothing else to be improved!! This car is awesome.
