i have owned all of the vehicles you have mentioned in the last 10 years
and there is no comparison or question that the '91 200tqw is the best.  it
is larger, than the subs, faster, better handling, nicer in general.
actually the handling and power is more comparable to your talon, maybe not
quite as nimble (but it won't melt down on all fronts like my talon did).
i also consider the 91 200tqa to be much safer than the other vehicles you
mention (even w/o the passenger airbag).  i haven't done a real price
comparison but i believe it is more expensive to drive, i haven't had too
many problems w/ mine just routine maintenance stuff.....parts are a bit
much...... w/ the 200q20v list to consult and the websites, home
maintenance is feasible .....it's a nice feeling knowing you can drop 99%
of the vehicles on the road with your station wagon, even when they have 3
more cylinders than you


'91 200tqa
'83 urq
