97 Turbo Tsi

Okay. quick question. I have a chance to get a 1997 Eagle Talon Turbo Tsi for $4000. It has 137,000 miles on it, the body is in almost perfect shape. No scratches, dents, rust, etc. The interior is really nice. How long do these motors last? Am I going to buy it and have to replace the motor soon? Or is this car worth it? Please let me know.

well, for having 137,000 miles it should be cheaper. I have found some really badass talons, with less miles for cheaper.


In late 2004, there was a TSI for sale in my local paper for $3,250. I went to check it out and found that it had only 64,000 miles. Also, itn had an upgraded intercooler, camshafts, turbo, Boost controller and turbo timer. The only reason I didn't buy it, is becausesomebody else did. He only left it at the sellers house so he could comeback with a friend to drive it to his house.
