1989 Toyota Supra Turbo Coupe turbo from UK and Ireland
Exhaust began blowing from the rear end.
Cylinder head gasket blew at 65 000 miles.
Bodywork rotten - arches to front and rear.
Strip under the windscreen was rotten.
Oil leak from the engine manifold.
Leather seats unusually worn for 60k miles (genuine by the way), especially in the rear.
Rear hatch leaks when raised.
Driver's side door fails to activate the outer light.
The best thing is the acceleration.
I am 6' 4" and eighteen stone - there is no better car for someone my size.
I have changed the following since purchase:
New wheels and tyres, new windscreen rebate strip, new cream leather interior, new cylinder head gasket, new radiator, new interior carpet, full respray (including side strips/mouldings), private plate, new rear fog light assembly, new cd player, oil leak from manifold cured, new rear exhaust system, new rear shock absorbers, etc etc. Car cost me £2600 and in the last nine months I have spent a further £8000 making a total of well over £10k!
Would like to find somebody close to home who could recover the brown (dated I think) hard plastic interior.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
