My baby!!!

Product Rating: 5.0 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Good looks, Handles very well, Reliable
Cons: Little problem with door catching on fender panel
The Bottom Line: Looks good, Drives good and by golly she feels good

I have had my Talon since new, she now has almost 250,000kms (approx. 150,000 miles) on her and has had a rough time of it the last year or so (transporting equipment for my work such as construction heaters) she has required very little maintenance.

Timing belt (1)(Engine damaged*) $3,000.00
Tires (1 set) $450.00
Brakes (2 sets) $650.00
Rear Bearings (1 set) $600.00
Total $5,000.00

(*Engine damage could have been avoided if I had the timing belt changed at 100,000 km as recommended, instead of 203,000kms as I did. This would have dropped the total to approx.$1,750.00 cdn. ($1,050.00 us.) which ain't bad over more than eight years)

and of course fairly regular oil changes. I hope to put a couple of grand into bringing her back up to scratch and drive her for a few more years. My biggest regret when she is finaly laid to rest is Talons are no longer available in Canada, mmmm...Pity
