"The AWD Tsi is just one of the best cars of the '90's period. Lots of mods available, both go fast and style to make it your own. Very reliable if you take care of maintenance. Mine is a daily driver, runs 12.6's on pump fuel, yet gets over 30mpg on the highway at cruise. I'm 6'2" and I have plenty of room and the car rides well. A great little commuter car to get you through traffic, yet a pretty unbeatable street car traffic light to traffic light. Best is the AWD really helps keep you safe in unsafe conditions."
"WITH THE EXCEPTION OF TURBO LAG, WHICH YOU GET WITH ANY TURBO THE CAR RESPONDS VERY WELL. THE ALL WHEEL DRIVE KEEPS THE CAR PLANTED TO THE ROAD AND MAKES IT A VERY QUICK CAR OFF THE LINE. THE AFTERMARKET FOR THESE CARS ARE EXTREEMLY CHEAP AND EASY TO ACCESS PARTS FOR, SHARING MANY PARTS WITH THE MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE AND PLYMOTH LAZER. THE INTERIOR IS VERY COMFORTABLE IF YOU ARE ONLY TAKING 1 PASSENGER, AS THE BACK SEATS ARE SOME WHAT SMALL. ANOTHER FEATURE I'M PLEASED WITH IS HOW DRIVER ORIENTED ALL THE CONTROLS ARE, ALL ARE INSIGHT AND FOCUSED ON MAKING THE DRIVER COMFORTABLE WITHOUT TAKING PASSIVE COMPFORTS AWAY. I GIVE THE CAR 5 OUT OF 5 STARS BASED ON ITS PERFORMANCE AND COMFORT, ALL FOR THE VALUE OF THE CAR"
"I absolutely adore my Talon. I've had a Laser and an Eclipse and I like the styling of the Talon the best. Fast, dependable, affordable, fun, just a joy to drive. It is no longer just driving for me... its actually a pleasurable experience. DSM for life!"
"not much to say besides the handling is better than an STI, can be built for less than pretty much any other car. dont get a talon unless its awd turb. performance is immaculate. stock seats are more comfy than some racing seats. just a perfect car"
"this car is awesome if you dont mind feeling claustrophobic. small inside, very small backseat, very fast car with very quick pick-up, sporty look, great for first time drivers or ones who like small cars"
