1989 Toyota Cressida 3.o straight 6 from North America
Don't buy one unless you like pulling heads off
3 blown head gaskets. This is the Supra engine. I am very disappointed in Toyota for not admitting the problem. I have a lot of miles on it, but I also have a 65 Mustang with a lot more and not one blown head gasket. Toyota should address this persistent problem and get their heads on straight because I for one am going to Honda. I don't think I am alone.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

We have had 2 head gaskets go, one at 70,000 kilometers & the other at 140,000 kilometers. This is a one owner, country driven car, never been over 3000 RPM. It is treated as a baby. Toyota dealers quote A$1500 to A$4000 to fix the problem. Has anybody any idea what causes the head gasket problem, as the car is fastidiously maintained? Apart from this, we love it.
