Summary:

A high performance, luxury mobile!

Faults:

HEAD GASKET! Make sure if you're gonna buy one, get a 'leak down test' and make sure it's not leaking.

Then, check the web, get info on the HG to keep it from blowing. Not too hard, disconnect the EGR because it heats up the back of the head. Also, re-torque the HG bolts (easy).

General Comments:

AWESOME car! Very nice and comfortable plus hauls butt! Easy/cheap to upgrade and make even faster...

Nice seats, good luxury/sports car, easy to take long trips, and also easy to race all the time :)

BUT, make sure you learn about the HG, and you're okay.

Turbo blew on me.

Oil gauge faulty.

General Comments:

The Supra Turbo is the BEST sports car.

I say this because it is. You can program anything into the computer system. e.g. (If you want the engine to carry on running, whilst the car is fully alarmed, it can be done easily).

Anyhow I have had my fair share of problems, and believe me it costs the earth, but what sports car doesn't? The thing is, if you are buying one, get the Toyota full service history, and get a warranty. My car had 36 months warranty with it, in the first year it had £6500 spent on the engine. If you look after the Supra and watch for the tell tale signals etc, then your Supra will be alive forever.

Supa dupa, it's a Toyota Supra.

General Comments:

The most unreliable car I have ever owned. In 2 years, it has cost over 6 thousand pounds in repairs and has twice left me stranded.

It is fantastic to drive - fast, comfortable and well equipped. It's just very very expensive to run.

You bought a bad car. Check it out before you buy it. Probably had an earlier accident. Supras are one of the most reliable cars.

You've bought a bad one. I have one that's a non-turbo with 150,000 on the clock, with 10,000 worth of bills before I bought it. I haven't had nothing go wrong except my alarm drained my battery so I bought a new one.

Is yours a turbo?
