I've got a '92 eagle talon tsi awd it has been sitting for some time, but I knew the moment I saw the car it had potential. I have turned it into my project. I pulled the motor and rebuilt it, replaced the crank took out the balancing shafts and gave her a new set of bearings. I was surprised at how much difference it made to the performance. a tip is to label the various vacuum hoses and electrical connections. I had a hard time remembering where they all went. now that she has a "fresh" motor I can start playing with her power I believe they can put out as much as 400 hp which is my new goal.

When I was about 8, my sister had a 91' Eagle Talon TSi, and I fell in love with it. It was fast, I called it "Big Red" because it was a small red car and it made no sense. Well just recently I got a white 91' Talon, and it is just as I remember it. I love how you sit in it and everything is higher. I think it kind of feels like a cockpit of an airplane or something. I love how everything is at your fingertips, and I just love it. My friends always complain because the backseat has very little leg room. I can honestly say that my car halls, but. And I will admit I push it real hard, but hey what do you expect, I'm a Teenager.

Since I first saw an Eagle Talon I have wanted one. I purchased my Talon brand new in 1992. I love this car. My friends love this car. Even my mother loves this car. Although I find that it does not drive very well under 120km. It seems to me the faster the car goes the better it handles. Such is life.
I am at the point in my life were I must sell the car, and boy is that difficult. I have tried to sell it for about three years now, but every time I get into the car out of storage for the winter and just take a test drive I find that I cannot sell. This time I really mean it, I am going to sell that darn car... but just a little test drive first.

I decided that the Eagle Talon TSI was the car for me when it was redesigned around 1991. I was back in high school back then so I didn't have the cash for it. Six years later, I finally got a 1993 TSI. That was one of the better decisions.
The car handled great in the Buffalo, NY snow storms, and was decent on gas back then. Too bad they discontinued all the platforms, I was hoping to have the collection of all the years of Eagle Talon TSI.

I bought my 92 tsi new. Beat it, wrecked it, fixed it, sold it, bought it back, beat it and wrecked it again!!! And my advice to you is its fun to drive fast, but not while drunk. The car is but a memory, but my dream lives on. Someday we will unite again... in car and person heaven.

I bought that 92 tsi from that guy, beat it wrecked it and then fixed it and sold it back to him for more than what I paid. Ha ha, sometimes I think I'm the smartest person on this planet, no offense to you people of course. Anyway, although I didn't wreck it I did travel dangerously fast and wrecked a few lawn gnomes. My advice don't be the guy I bought that car from. The guy was a loser, I mean who uses panty hose for a fan belt? Dummy.

I own a 1992 AWD TSI, electric blue, fully loaded. I Have owned the Talon for almost three years, have pulled the engine three times, and am about to drop it back in completely rebuilt. The car always breaks, but now it's pretty much bulletproof. I'm anxious to see how it goes. It was always fast, but with all the mods I just made, I'm smokin' Vipers. I'll never sell my Talon. Ever. never. ever.

I was wondering if anybody could give me some good advise. I just bought a 92 Talon turbo for $350, it is not in running conditions. The guy I bought it from said it needed the Heads to be worked on. I heard it start once and it sounded bad. We tried to test drive it, but the car made a loud noise and it hardly had any power. Should I fix the heads on the car or would it be easier to drop a new engine in it? The car has 133,000 miles in it.

I have a 1993 Eagle Talon. I love my car, but I have a little problem that some of you may be able to help me with. IT won't START!!! A couple weeks ago my husband came to get me from work. He was out of the car for 5 minutes. When we got back in the car, it would not start. The starter didn't make a sound, but all the lights and the automatic seat belts worked. We took it to the garage and they said that the relay on the starter was bad. They fixed it and it worked fine. until yesterday. It did the same thing again. The car is a 5 speed and we can push start it. Any idea's what it could be??

I have two 92 eagle talons 5 speeds. I love these cars. Now I have to sell them. They have been parked for almost five years now. I can't find anyone to work on the motors. My problem is that I can't find anyone to buy these cars, but teenagers.

Guy with the lagging power, your car is turbo charged, you need to let it warm up even in the hot summer days. I have a 92 Talon, and the first 3 days I had the car I didn't know that, so I just started it and drove; before I knew it I blew my turbo.

Hey everyone. I just bought a 91 Eagle Talon non-turbo. The starter works, but I'm not getting any fuel or spark. Before I bought it the guy I got it from said he heard a clicking noise coming from up towards the fire wall and replaced the relay that was there. I think it was the fuel relay, but I only see one relay there. There is one next to the windshield motor, but right next to it are like 4 clips with nothing clipped into them. I know that the fuel pump isn't coming on, so I guess it could be the relay. Someone else said my computer would also make a clicking sound when it is damaged where it is reseting itself. Does anyone know where the computer or Fuel relay is located? Thanks.
