1995 Eagle Talon TSi 2.0 turbo from North America
A high performance dream
Turbo blew 4 days after purchasing the car (1400)
Air Conditioning went out after three months (yet to fix)
Engine mounts cracked, all three and trans mount, 90000 miles (still shopping for best prices)
Love my car to death, wasn't fortunate to get the All-Wheel Drive Talon, but as long as I have the turbo, I'm happy. I have smoked Civic's, Eclipse's, all kinds of Mustangs, a Trans AM, Celica GT's, and a few other Honda's. There are some more that I can't think of right now, I am looking at a record of 28 and 2. Both losses to Corvette's, but I knew I couldn't win. he only way the car could handle any better is if I had the All-Wheel Drive. Despite the stuff that has gone wrong and what can go wrong, I would get another Talon any day.
This is my first car so I'm not to sure about the good places to get regular parts and performance parts. If any one has some useful information please e-mail me at Rad0218@aol.com.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

You brag about beating cars I could beat on my bicycle. Celicas, Civics, Eclipses.. big deal. And as far as beating a Trans Am... what was it, a beater from the early 70s? I own Trans Am and I haven't even come across a Talon owner who even tried to race.
Ya no doubt... my T/A would smoke your little Tonka toy of a car. And why are you racing Corvettes, nice race. Good job.
I wouldn't be calling Eclipse's toys... My buddy has a 1995 Eclipse GS-T and I drive it all the time. It may not be able to take the 350's that the T/A's have stock, but it you put about 500-1000 into that tough 2.0L DOHC you'll be wishing that cars didn't have exhaust because you'll be bathing in it from the Eclipse.
Dude I so agree with ya...Eclipse/Talon's all the way.
