1999 Toyota Mark II Grande 3.0 G 3.0 I-6 2JZ-GE
Flawless Japanese engineering
Front TEMS (Toyota Electronically Modulated Suspension) shock absorbers wore out..
Aside from that... NOTHING.
This car is really comfortable. The build quality is at par or even better than most European cars. Too bad it wasn't available with leather seats.
Also, The fuel economy is excellent for what it is. I did 390.2 kms with 32.0 Litres of 95 Octane fuel (calculated) from Ohakune to Auckland with a fully loaded car (snowboard, bags, etc + 4 passengers).
It's got all the luxury bits to make long drives an ease.
It's just a breath of fresh air every time I drive this. (I do have a Chaser Tourer V and a 79 Datsun Fairlady)
If ever I have to get rid of all of my cars, this one is the last one to go.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
