1995 Eagle Talon tsi (fwd) 2.0 (4g63) from North America
It was a great deal, 300 horse power for 5000 bucks
The leather on my seats started to wear before I got the car.
The fabric on the iterior roof of the car also had started to come down by the visors.
At 120000 miles I replaced the flex tube on the exhaust because it was leaking.
At 128000 I had to replace the stock clutch. It went bad due to excessive horsepower and torque for the clutch rating, not to mention miles.
My talon is a very quick car especially if you can get the front tires to hook up on a take off.
Many want the all wheel drive version, but I stuck with front wheel drive so that I could keep the cost of maintenance down to a minimum.
It's a very comfortable car inside to, with leather seats and all switches and storage places at arms reach.
This car will be a keeper for a long time because, Its fun, fast, and easy to fix when the little things go wrong.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

A Eclipse GSX actually isn't as quick as a Eagle Talon TSI Fwd, if you going by 95's, 0-60 time is.2 seconds shorter in the TSI, that's not much, but just pointing out that an eclipse isn't quicker.

Hello all. I just bought a TSI Fwd. On my way home the car started over heating. It lags when taking off and makes a weird sound from the front end and when I stop. It also makes a rattling noise or a ticking noise when I take off. It goes away when I stop. The light that looks like a home with lines in the box is on and the check engine light. None of this was on or happening when I bought it. It's my first TSI and I heard so many good things about this car, but now I don't know what to do. If someone can help me with some advice, that would be great. Thank you for reading this, and I hope to hear from someone soon.
