1981 Toyota CressidaReview
1981 Toyota Crisseda — New disc brakes, new master cylinder, reconditioned motor. Damage on rear left passenger side door (not my fault). Recently had petrol cap forgotten to be put back on ahhhh! Sliver colour nothing fancy, pink R.M Williams brand sticker on back window, fun to drive, performs well, although chews through petrol when given constant acceleration. No squeaks, small vibrations when stereo is at a high volume. Handling- power steering good, interior styleing carpeted dash and doors/floor, maintenance not needed yet, apart from washing every week or so. Generally a mechanically stable car to drive,also very quiet compared to other cars. I would recommend it a buy if all the mechanicals are fixed etc. But don't ask me cause I'm not selling mine :)
Pros: CD Player for non-boring trips, reconditioned motor and disc brakes/master cylinder/spark plugs for better driving performance.
Cons: Chews through petrol when given a lot of acceleration
