2001 Toyota Mark II Sedan 2.0 from Zimbabwe

Summary:

One toy any man can't afford to live without

Faults:

The gears produce a funny sound as you put more power through them.

General Comments:

Beautiful Boeing 707 of the road.

The take off is just one of a kind. The car has all the comfort one could ever want. Very spacious interior.

Fastness guaranteed. After driving one such as this, you don't wanna get into any other car.

Fuel consumption is quite normal; very economic. My 2.0 enables me to drive to work, do errands and get back home without any worries on my pocket.

I don't know about some, but for me the Mark 2 Grande is best the car Toyota ever made.

My only concern is the need for an English manual. It would help us understand the car more, not entirely rely on experience only, but get the understanding from the manufacturer themselves.

1997 Toyota Mark II Regalia 2.0 petrol from Zimbabwe

Summary:

It's a mean machine

Faults:

The windows let in air and the noise is irritating.

General Comments:

I bought this car second hand after I had a Toyota Carina for about a year. I am loving this car; it has great power on take off and acceleration after slowing down a bit, which is super when overtaking.

I have pushed this car to the limit, and I can confidently say I accelerated to over 180km/hr on a flat road; the speedometer went beyond 180km/hr and it kept on accelerating.

May someone please assist me with the manual (English) as it came with no manual, you can email it to tomtinashe@gmail.com

Thanks.

1999 Toyota Mark II Grande 3.0 G 3.0 I-6 2JZ-GE from Australia and New Zealand

Summary:

Flawless Japanese engineering

Faults:

Front TEMS (Toyota Electronically Modulated Suspension) shock absorbers wore out..

Aside from that... NOTHING.

General Comments:

This car is really comfortable. The build quality is at par or even better than most European cars. Too bad it wasn't available with leather seats.

Also, The fuel economy is excellent for what it is. I did 390.2 kms with 32.0 Litres of 95 Octane fuel (calculated) from Ohakune to Auckland with a fully loaded car (snowboard, bags, etc + 4 passengers).

It's got all the luxury bits to make long drives an ease.

It's just a breath of fresh air every time I drive this. (I do have a Chaser Tourer V and a 79 Datsun Fairlady)

If ever I have to get rid of all of my cars, this one is the last one to go.

The engine has started to rev, and they go up and down at random.

1996 Toyota Mark II Grande G 3.0 petrol from Uganda

Summary:

A great car and I highly recommend it

Faults:

Alternator fault - High beams wouldn't function due to low charge.

Faulty rear door (driver side) - won't unlock centrally.

ABS fault.

TRC (traction control) fault.

General Comments:

Generally a refined, reliable, affordable and competent car.

This car is 'fully loaded' and well specified including the following;

Side-mirror heaters!

Front windscreen heater elements!

Electric drivers seat adjustment

Switchable traction control

ABS

Premium sound system with sub woofer (OEM)

Rear intermittent wash-wiper

Alloy wheels

Climate control

Cruise control etc.

Despite the faults listed above - of which only the first one was critical - the ownership experience has been pain free and pleasant.

The ABS and TRC faults can easily be sorted out with a re-set of the ECU (Electronic Control Unit)

The 2JZ-GE (normally aspirated) engine is smooth, refined, powerful and sounds great when you get above 3500rpm. At which point it pulls like a train, and has plenty of power for passing other cars.

However, beware that driven like that for long periods the fuel consumption of this car can be SHOCKING! Driven smoothly and below 2500rpm it returns more than adequate performance and consumption figures.
