1989 Toyota Cressida 3.0L TWIN CAM from North America
The FIRST Lexus!! Excellent car for the money!!
I must say I have never had any serious problems.
Power antenna stopped working-took 20 min to replace...
This car is a TANK, let me just say that.
The Cressida is one of the best car's Toyota ever produced.
It's the best kept secret in the automotive industry and has always been a sleeper hit among Toyota fans.
You will be lucky to spot 1 or 2 Cressida's per year... thay are that hard to find. They are not your normal everyday car... they are a true collectors item in my opinion.
TOTAL LUXURY is standard in the Cressida. This car was way ahead of it's time. Some standard features on the Cressida are still not even in today's new cars... and this was 16 YEARS AGO!!
The car simply drives like a dream. You can go 90 mph on the highway and not even realize it.
It's spacious, quiet, comfortable, and extremely smooth out on the road.
I have reached 197,000 miles on my Cressida and it still drives like day one. FANTASTIC!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1. No, Toyota didn't stop producing them for 13 years, they simply designed a premuim lineup called 'Lexus'
2. The cars were offered in more limited #'s as opposed to the current Lexus lineup.
I owned a 1990 Cressida for quite a few years. I think what the reviewer is stating is that a lot of the features on the Cressida were standard equiptment included with the car, as opposed to additional options. My '90 Cressida had heated mirrors, ABS, traction control, adjustable height, "sport" mode selector for the transmission, and a Panasonic cd player-STANDARD.
You will be lucky to buy a new vehicle even today with HALF of those features, or will end up paying extra in the final price.
