"I bought this car from a dealership, it had been through 7 previous owners. One had managed to kill the engine. Originally the plan was to find a cheap car to learn stick with. However it escalated to a full engine rebuild of this car. It's been my daily driver since. There's a few kinks here and there, but it's far better than driving a Corolla."
Pros: "As below, Toyota quality throughout, a proto-Lexus"
Cons: "While still contemporary, styling is stealthy"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Very nice luxo-sport, handles like a 'vette (corvette, not chevette), gets 18-19 city and 24 highway, though I've gotten 17/27/24, haulage is surprisingly good but the back seat is for children, very comfortable driving position and power lumbar is a treat, overall well-designed ergonomics.
Outside of regular maintenance, I have spent nothing on repairs, everything works like new, a bargain on the used market."
"Bought new in '91 and has been my primary car for the past 19 years. No problems. None. Good mpg 19/24, fun to drive, good cargo room, comfortable, timeless styling, impressive performance. After all this time, it still drives like new. Unbelieveable car."
"The 1989 Toyota Supra Turbo w/targa top is a great car and still in style. I would recommend any owner of this car with the 3.0 L engine keep a lookout on oil leakage around the head gaskets. Just keep a checkup on the engine and have the service done and you should be able to get a lot of very good service from the vehicle. The Supra w/turbo has power and performance when needed and holds the road well at high speeds; very little wind noise. A very well built car. The automatic transmission is great! Reasonable gas milage for the performance of the car."
"I love my car more then anything...i own a 92 teal turbo targa 5 speed with the shadow grey interior. this car with the boost bumped up only 4 psi is a rocket...this car is way ahead of its time and still is."
