This car is worth buying

Vehicle: 1990 Toyota Cressida 4dr Sedan

If you want a car that can take a hit and still get you to the market this is the one. I've have seen what this car can take first hand and it's a lot. I got this car and thought it was ugly at first then after spending countless hours cleaning and detailing it, putting rims and tires, tinting the windows and lowering it, it was turning heads right and left. People would come up to me and ask what kind of car was it? I'd just smile and tell them and they get a puzzled look on their face. It's a what? Toyota Cressida what that? It would take about 10 min to explain to them.

Still one of the best

If you eat up cars like I do driving 50k miles a year you have no business wasting big dollars on high priced new cars. Still want style and comfort, look to the Cressida - it is a poor mans Lexus and the build quality is excellent. If you can find one in good shape and take care of it, it will last 240k or more. I am getting 26 mph highway with mine which is good for a 3.0 6 cyl The seat comfort and ride handling made a 1000 mile trip back from where I bought it seem easy. This car was way ahead of its time when it came out in 1989 and 1992 was the last year for the Cressida. The Avalon was its replacement.

Many years of reliability

Vehicle: 1990 Toyota Cressida 4dr Sedan

Bought this car new, and it has been a pleasure to own for fourteen years. It remains good looking to me despite the years, and I still find it fun to drive, as it is quiet and handles very well. It has been very reliable, with the possible exception of the need to replace the air-conditioning evaporator, although that might be effect of the South Florida climate more than anything else, as I had the same problem with several other cars I have owned here. I can't really bring myself to get rid of this car.

Nice for a first car

Nice car. Had every thing an 18 year old speed demon needed to be happy. Unfortunately, I was too much of a speed demon and wrapped myself around a telephone pole. Car got toasted, but I survived. All hail Toyota!

Truly excellent!!!!!!!

Best cat i ever owned!

Vehicle: 1990 Toyota Cressida 4dr Sedan

I bought this car as an insurance write- off. It had been front-ended and subsequently rebuilt. After checking with the body shop (who supplied me with the maintenance records from day 1) I realized theat Cressidas were built like tanks! Controls felt like new (35000 km on car). Nice surprise - newer motor with 50000 km installed when car rebuilt. This car was to have been just a "beater" until we could afford something better for wife but has become primary transportation and will be restored to as new over next couple of years. If you find a good 1998-91 Cressida at any price, BUY IT! You won't be disappointed.
