1991 Toyota Cressida LX 3.0 Liter I6 from Yemen


The best for anyone!


The only thing that have gone wrong in this car are the hood struts.

Someone yanked the sunvisor till he broke it, so I got that fixed.

General Comments:

If someone gives me all the money in the world, I would NEVER sell it. This car is very reliable and is always taken care of. The leather seats are always conditioned and I race with all the Hondas and I beat their sorry little 4 cylinder motors!

Really, I don't like how the bumpers are styled, but I love it more than my 2002 4runner!

1991 Toyota Cressida Grande 3.0L from Australia and New Zealand


A nice comfortable mid sized family car with a touch of luxury


Head gasket blown at 283000km. $2500AUD to repair.

All hoses (still originals) replaced at 283000km.

Strange problem with rough starting when hot since 266000km. Toyota Dealer at a loss after having it for a total of 3 weeks and trying new computers and different sensors (at their expense). Problem remains even after new platinum plugs (expensive) and injector reconditioning.

Last battery lasted 2 years - About normal for Australia.

At ~290000km has developed an odd habit of the temperature gauge flicking up to maximum for a fraction of a second - Problem unknown.

CD player skips.

Power steering fluid leak from 287000km.

General Comments:

A very nice, very comfortable car. This one was log book dealer serviced from new.

It is easy to drive, and rather powerful. The 7MGE motor is the same as used in some Soarers and Supras of the same period. Very smooth automatic transmission, but switchable to a more sporty mode.

Rear seats don't fold down and the boot is fairly small. I've driven smaller cars with more room.

I get around 450km on 50L for city driving, and about 600km for highway.

Car handles very well, and is very comfortable and very quiet. Great for long distance trips.

Nice writeup. I own a 92 Grande. Awsome cars.

Your idle problems on a hot start are likely to be the result of high fuel pressure. Have your fuel pressure checked and if its high, either buy a new toyota fuel pressure regulator or buy an aftermarket adjustable fuel pressure regulator with gauge and see if that fixes things.


1991 Toyota Cressida V6 3L from North America


Looks are deceiving


Some times the key will stick in the lock and will not turn.

The car was given to me by my grandmother so it was never driven much so is in very good cond. but the leather seats were not taken care of so they have cracked.

The springs in the preset buttons on the stereo have broken so you can only have one station or you have to tune another one in.

I am a 16 year old boy with very high expectations and this car meets almost every single one of them.

General Comments:

The car is very fast and sometimes it can get away from you. Sometimes when you are driving it you feel like you are driving a supra or something of that nature.

The electronics on the other hand are not the best, but then CD players were new in 91 and they tried to make the car very high tech so I would recommend this car to anyone and every one.

The key not turning once you put it in the ignition may be because the steering wheel is locked. Most cars have this feature. You must move your steering wheel the opposite way and then turn the key to start the car.

Nice vehicle but old-school... more like a wagon. Definitely a reliable vehicle...
