1987 Toyota Cressida Luxury 4 dr sedan 6 cylinder overhead cam from North America
Has been a very reliable car that has been parked outside 24/7 for the last 18 years
Around 1995 I drove out of an airport parking lot covered in wet snow, and upon entering the freeway about 1/4 mile away, the car would not shift gears as I entered the freeway. I let up on the gas and the car spun out. I crawled off the freeway and drove home on side streets. Garaged and the next day ran fine. However it did happen again when sitting in the cold. The original high speed tires were not designed for snow and ice.
Other than regular maintenance items over 29 years, the car still runs great. Smokes a little on warm up and I suspect the valve stem seals.
I have had the timing belt replaced once, replaced the rear electric antenna, heat/AC blower motor replaced, leaking chipped headlights replaced, tailpipe end past resonator rusted and replaced.
A/C compressor replaced.
Radiator removed cleaned and repaired.
Some shifting "clunk" noises, console lid hinges have broken twice.
Front end work.
Car alarm has a short, so I don't use it.
Rear package tray carpet sun rotting.
Very quiet car when driving.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
