Classy Gran Touring Convertible

It's not a grand touring coupe. It is a luxury grand touring coupe. The opulent interior wraps you in wonderfully smooth and pliable leather and beautifully finished Birdseye maple. The Levinson sound system is amazing and includes a 6 disc in dash player. Heated seats, individual climate control for driver and passenger. Handling is much better than my Jag ever was. Acceleration is very good but no, not an all out performance vehicle. Braking is fantastic. On the open road this car is spectacular! Set the cruise at 77 mph (70 mph speed limit) and cruise down the freeway getting 28 mpg. The top goes up or down in 20 seconds. Mine has just crossed over the 60,000 mile mark. I've had to replace nothing but tires and a battery. The battery was a phenomenal 12 years old. The tires had over 30,000 miles with 80% tread but over the 10 year age limit. What else can I say other than it's a joy to drive with distinctive lines!

A sweet car with an impeccable interior. 44k mi

It’s a fun car to drive with the top down. The new model has a soft top, I like the hard top better. While not a sports car it has plenty of power too.

Most reliable car have owned it.

It's a lot of fun to drive this car, and very reliable. Even though is an 8 cylinder car is not a gas guzzler one.

one heck of a first car

inherited this car from my late father last year. may not look as showroom new like first picked up but everything about it really makes for an epic second hand whip. i own an '02 which means it still has the butt-ugly headlamps but ull get used to it once in a while. dad got rid of the oem rims and replaced them with sportier 5 spokes ages ago. the leather in the seats wrinkled badly but is still replaceable. and to make this car as JDM as possible, the L badges were replaced with the japan-market griffon badges fresh off the toyota soarers. the best part about this car is its timeless interior cos wow for an 18 year old car it's insides have kept its age extremely well. this car is best enjoyed with the top down (obviously) with the v8 punched out to the max on empty freeways.

Dream car!

This has been my dream summer car. So comfortable and reliable. Also, in my humble opinion one of the most beautifully designed automobiles out there.

Awesome car ahead of its time

After nearly 18 years it is still the most awesome car I've owned. The drive, comfort, lines, details and ability to convert my ride with top down . . . what more could one ask for? It was quite expensive and you get what you pay for.

Only had it 1 week so I cant give a real good eval

Whats not to like about it. Its a luxury coupe that rides like a dream. The power under the hood is great to have when I need it.
