This Is The Grande, If You Can Get One "just Do It" — This is a 1990 Cressida Grande. It is in completely original condition and is fully loaded. As standard it has power windows, electric mirrors, electric sunroof, power adjust driver seat, tilt column steering, cruise control, climate control, six speaker stereo with in dash CD and tape player, climate control and the list goes on....... It runs a 3 litre in line six cylinder with double over head cam and fuel injection. Transmission is a 4 speed auto with overdrive and ECTS and backed up by a limited slip diff in the rear. Outside the car has been to refered to as a Grampa car but its style grows on you and its paint job is still as shiny as the day it rolled of the assembly line. Overall i love this car. On the open road it has the power to compete with V8s and at the traffic lights its accelaration will make your head snap back against the seat.

Cons

resale price sucks

I Love The Car To Death, She Just Needs Some Work — was good back in its time, with upgrades she would be better than most basic models these days, the sound system is definitely out of date, the body is a good overal shape, this is a reliable car that i am proud of owning

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

A Great Second Car That's Just Fun To Drive. — Two years ago I bought the car from the original owner. It's now got 78,000 miles. Some overheating and missing problems. Just a fun, tight car to drive. My mechanic thinks it should run forever. I think it still looks pretty good. I think the CD (skips) is about the only thing that doesn't work reliably. About 19 - 20 around town on regular; definitely better on the freeway. Plenty zippy for me.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Lovely car

Cons

Auto transmission

V.i.p Cressida — The most comfortable car i have ever had. Ok power (still got the turbo in the garage) nice apperence. The only downside is the slugish auto transmission, hopfully i will get an r154 manual transmission in the future. V.I.P for life

Primary Use: Family transportation

Comfortable ride, good handling

Cons

Would be better with twin turbos and a six speed manual

4 Door Supra — This car has the same drive train as the Toyota Supra sports car, 3.0L DOHC 24 valve inline six, although not available with the turbo or the manual transmission in the US (Older models with the 5MGE engine were available 5 speed in the US). It's not as fast as I thought it would be, but it gets up and goes pretty well, and handles well for a car it's size.
