Oil gasket leaking, but repairs are cheap.

Bushes are worn out, but also cheap since the car uses the same parts as the Toyota Mark X.

General Comments:

The stability of the Crown is superb.

Can easily reach 180km/h without any struggle.

Superb handling.

Powerful engine yet very economical.

Very reliable car and very spacious.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
