New Member- First Time Soarer Owner

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've been wanting one for about 5 years and have finally bought a V8 Soarer. It's in need of some TLC but am really looking forward to getting stuck into it.

Any advise/tips anyone can offer on Soarer ownership would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers :)

Welcome to the LOC, and what a rare car. I remember when top gear were reviewing it, even Clarkson loved it!  How about some photos?

Great.

What colour?

I had one back in the day.

Keep those fluids fresh - oil, gearbox...

It's a very dark green.

I'm planning on doing a full service on it asap. I have genuine Toyota front discs and pads on the way for it also.

I'll be sure to add some photos soon :)

I assume it has leather seats and air suspension ?

It does. The ABS light seems to come on if I raise the car too high or lower it too low, something else on the list to look into. It has a separate controller for it underneath the stereo which I am guessing is aftermarket.

I recall an on/off Air Suspension switch... In the boot?

Ah no way, is that what that is?!

I assume it will remain at the same height its at once you turn it off?

Today I've both lived and learned, I had no idea the Soarer had air suspension!

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
