You don't buy a little sports car for a new driver. Especially an automatic talon. Not the most reliable cars, but can be easily modded to go really really fast.

Basically, don't get it for your daughter.

Hi, I am looking at buying a 1992 Eagle Talon AWD tsi for $1,500, but the body has a little over 300,000 miles on it, and it has a new motor with 30,000 on it. Also the timing belt snapped, and well there is most likely a bent valve. Is this a good price to buy at or not thanks. And also, how much am I looking at to repair it?

I just bought my Eagle Talon today for $300. yeah that's cheap, but the guy wanted it off his land. well it has been to the machine shop about 3 times before I bought it and has a rebuilt/new motor bored out to a 2.3. I asked the guy what was wrong with it and he said that it had the timing belt replaced, and a brand new tensioner in it. but now I have 2 bent valves. but when it starts up it sputters. (I have not driven it, I towed it home.) now I am wondering what could cause a valve to bend and if it should be OK to replace them. I know that the motors are zero tolerance motors. but I wanted to know if I could replace them my self and how hard it would be to do the job. other than that I had friends who sore up and down this is a great car, Now that I own one I hope to also swear by it to. oh and I do not have a turbo. so if you can help me in any way on how to fix or what the cause of bending a valve please write me at proskation@aol.com. thanks cause I wanna make this car be my dream car of speed.
