1994 Eagle Talon ES 2.0 from North America


Piece of garbage


Timing belt jumped after getting it replaced at the shop.

Valve springs broken.

Oil leaks for no reason.

I wouldn't recommend getting this car. It just takes money out of your pocket like you are being robbed.

General Comments:

Nice looking car, but a piece of junk.

If you didn't dog the car, then maybe it would run better. I will say that this car sometimes has some trouble, but if you take care of the car, it will run fine. I ran mine for 180,000 miles and didn't have a single problem until just now.

You can't go wrong with a car like this


The transmission is slipping in cold weather.

The A/C has almost completely fell apart.

Unusual powder on plastic parts.

An unusual drop in city MPG from 20 to 14!

General Comments:

This car was in a T-bone accident on the drivers side and was fixed to driving condition with new doors in a matter of 2 weeks. The driver ended DRIVING the car 20 miles back home. And after that the front end was damaged and is running without a hitch. If this doesn't show the safety and ingenuity of true American design then tell me what does.

For a 4-door sedan this thing is quick. My 3.5L engine out accelerated a 1994 Prelude with a V-Tech in it. The only reason not to by a car like this in the inabilty to make and find performance parts.

1994 Eagle Talon ESI/ES 2.0 DOHC 16v from North America


Looks Sexy, Drives amazing, Eye catcher


I got the car at 109000 for about 3grand. The owner before me changed everything in the car. Whatever you can think of, it was changed around the 100km mark. Timing belt, battery, new brakes, etc. I can go on and on forever. It was lowered, which cost about 800, new performance exhaust, 600.

Oil lamp always shows low even when I performed the oil change, that's the only thing wrong.

General Comments:

Car runs smoothhhh. I got rims with it too, 17 inch low pros. Great car, looks amazing, As long as you do regular maintenance the car should be fine. The previous owner invested about 4 grand into the car with all the parts he had to replace, soo I got a great deal.

Smooth handling, looks great, fast.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

1994 Eagle Talon DL 1.8L from North America


Perfect Honda eater!!!


So far the car has only had an oil leak witch I still need to work on, I have had problems with idling (idles around 2,000RPM's) when air conditioner is on car idles very low and engine seem to be working extremely hard to pull its weight.

General Comments:

All thought the car leaks oil, and idle is off, and is only a 1.8L it is fairly quick and handles with minor body roll.

I wish I had bought the Tsi AWD, but I was in need of a car and this is the one I got.

I'm looking to buy a 4G63 Turbo engine for the car and building it from there.

I would suggest a Talon to anyone who wants a car that is fairly low maintenence and easy to build!

Hi, I have a 93 Eagle Talon Dl like yours with 155,000 miles on it now. It's a great, sporty little car, gets good gas mileage (30-35 with hard driving), beats some Honda's (non-VTEC of course), and overall is very easy to work on. The idling problems could be either a vacuum leak (if it really idles as high as 2000 RPM) or the ISC (Idle Speed Control) motor. The idle speed control motor is a common problem on all DSM's.

There is actually sites to help you modify and maintain your car. You can actually do more than you think with your 1.8, even turbo, and still have a reliable daily driver too.

I am currently swapping in another 1.8 engine that is slightly worked into my Talon. It's going to have better pistons, a worked head, and some other goodies. My advice is, do not swap to a 4g63T in a 1.8 car. It is not worth it at all, costs way too much (expect to spend $2000 at least on good, reliable parts, including a new engine, transmission, fuel pump, ecu, etc), and they are very unreliable engines (timing belts have a habit of breaking).

I ended up doing the wise thing and bought a 96 Eagle Talon TSI AWD to modify, and I am keeping the 1.8 as a backup/daily driver. My AWD runs 12 second quarter miles with little modifications, but is not reliable enough to be driven every day.

Good luck with your 1.8, and take care of it too.
