1992 Eagle Talon DOHC AWD TSI turbo from North America


An excellent street-racer for the lover of fast cars


Front suspension is having some problems. Started shaking past 65 miles per hour despite new tie-rods, U-joints, end-joints.

Seats are thin cloth and are wearing.

A-pillar held on with flimsy plastic clips and velcro. Had to replace one side of pillar already. In fact, have had to do a lot of interior repairs compared to other cars I have owned.

Head gasket started leaking oil at 120,000.

Timing belt went out at 110,000.

General Comments:

For the money, this is one compact and fast little car.

Timing belt very easy to change. Engine in general very easy to work on - the entire engine can be rebuilt without removing it from the car.

1992 Eagle Talon TSi AWD 2.0 turbo from North America


Best performance for the price with turbo-charged all-wheel drive


The oil cooler recently went.

General Comments:

The car has great performance out of the box with plenty of cheap upgrades to improve it.

The seats are comfortable enough to drive it from Georgia to Michigan.

The engine bay is a little crowded, but the Mitsubishi 4G63 turbo-charged engine is a marvelous motor.

I bought one for my first car, and bought another to build for a drag car. Great car for student or car enthusiast.

1992 Eagle Talon TSi 2.0 turbo from North America


A high performance bargain


The thing that was most wrong with the car was that the turbos seal had gone bad and was leaking a lot of oil into the intake. This caused the car to burn oil. The car never burned oil otherwise when this was fixed.

General Comments:

Really ran great for the miles. I enjoyed it very much. Still very fast.

If the price is right, so is the car


My engine seized at 169,000 kilometers, but this was due to a problem with the oil pump and oil pump gauge. There was no oil pressure in the engine, but the gauge was reading pressure. I spent $3900.00 Canadian for the new engine and a new clutch.

Other than that, the problems have all been minor and I feel that this is a great car. Just wish I had known about the gauge before it was too late. Oh well.

2nd gear grinds from time to time, but once you're used to it you find your way around it.

Minor problems with driver's side mirror shorting out half in the upward motion half way up, but only shorts out for a second.

General Comments:

All in all, I would say it's a great car. Very fast for a non-turbo also. Surprised me a lot. Beat Honda's right off the road.

Why would you buy a non turbo talon? you could buy a neon r/t that would blow the doors off your car. Adding a turbo will cost a bit, probably around 1500 (CAN), but will boost hp from 140 to 220, and is the easiest, and most effective upgrade available for any car, not just a talon. (if you do buy a turbo, don't get a stock eagle/mitsubishi turbo; get an aftermarket one, because they are cheaper and better)

Perhaps some people are not about rice burning cars that drive fast. Following this persons advice on adding an aftermarket turbo onto a stock vehicle is going to have your vehicle blow up. In order to properly install an aftermarket turbo on a Talon it would require a rebuild of the engine using upgraded components.

Don't judge a book by its cover, but more or less the content/condition of the motor!


To start, 2 x rotors, brakes, emergency brake, calipers, seat belt, air conditioning, door handle, exhaust end, exhaust flex pipe, hoses, thermostat, and etc. outside.

Top end of motor went out at 89000. Bottom end of motor 200 miles later.

Clutch, transmission, water pump, timing belt, 3000 miles later.

Bad luck on a good looking lemon, not any more.

General Comments:

This car looked hot, but it didn't run hot when I got her home from the used dealer.

It had been beat on and it showed, so I dropped in a new 2.0 DOHC AMG Cylon Mitsubishi motor which added 25-35 hp.

Even though it was non-turbo, I love driving it, but if I had to do it all over again, I would have bought one new, brand new, & then improved it!!!
