1979 Toyota Cressida 2.0 from UK and Ireland
Excellent pseudo yank styled cruiser
Water pump failed at 65000.
Bodywork gets rusty if left near a damp cloth!!
Very reliable old car, owned for four years and was reliable as your grandmother.
Never let me down, in all conditions, never overheated, or ran rough, even when neglected and abused. I Altered the suspension for better handling and appearance, (see photo above of my silver car. GAL 177v) because with stock soft ride, motion sickness was a problem.
Body wise rust was a problem even when cared for. If Toyota used better grade metal, there would still be thousands of these still running today.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
