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.
Power seats, Performance and classic looks also a great working power sunroof with tilt and slide almost feels convertible like for a sedan.
Watch out for gasket and seals but if you replace gaskets with hks and torque head bolts tighter you are good to go usually. Also make sure coolant stays good as these cars can have overheating problems if you are lax in this area.
