Excellent quality, with the ability to be easily modified


There is nothing directly wrong with the car. The only thing I would fault would be the cost of items from the manufacturer (Toyota). The genuine parts are expensive, but I must admit, quality.

The leather seats seem to wear on all models. They wear away due to the driver getting in and out of the car, so this is not really a fault, just normal wear and tear.

General Comments:

The beautiful thing about this car is that there are several websites that support you if you want to modify, repair or generally enhance the car.

For example:


And many more.

This car is built with quality in mind, and I mean throughout the car.

The engine is basically indestructible, it's not unheard of people running 25 psi through stock internals.

If you want a fast car with the ability to become a horsepower hero, give the Toyota Soarer a drive... you won't turn back!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
