I think that's an S170 Crown, the previous model to my S180. They upgraded the engine to a V8 in the S180 Majesta plus a few other things. Still looks very nice though!.
Had my Majesta for over a month now and am v happy with it, but there are some minor niggly issues that I wasn't expecting..
Firstly, there's no way to manually reset the avg fuel consumption reading. In any other car you can press a button or choose an option to set this reading back to zero (ie, how much fuel am I using from now on). In the crown (and lexus ls430) you can't do that. Instead, the reading gets reset to zero (whether you like it or not) when you fill up the tank. Considering the effort Toyota made to make this car better than it's European rivals, this oversight is v strange.
Secondly, the boot release mechanism is rubbish. You press a button under the boot lid and and it pops open. Then you have to gently lift it up about an inch until the motors engage and open it fully for you. So it sort of opens automatically but it doesn't shut itself. You have to do that yourself! You push the boot lid down and just before it's shut the car sucks it down the rest of the way with a viscous thump to make sure it is secure. I have checked and this isn't a fault. It's just what crowns do. I think it is specifically designed to eat fingers and a real child hazard. It reminds me of the snappy cash till they had in 'Open All Hours'.
The worst one though is the park brake. It's not a handbrake, it's a footbrake, but that's not the problem - my Avalon had a footbrake and it's easy to use when you get used to it. You park and press the lever down to engage it, then press fully down and gradually lift off to disengage if you are on a slope etc (just like an old handbrake). My new Crown also has a foot pedal to engage the park brake, but you can't disengage it with the pedal. Instead there is a big lever under the dashboard and when you pull it the park brake is completely 'off'.
I have a steep driveway and this isn't a problem when I set off in the morning because the engine revs higher until it reaches working temperature. However, if you drive about a bit and park the car on a slope, when you pull that lever to drive off the car rolls. The park brake is either on or off and you have to do some fancy footwork with the brake and accelerator to avoid a ding. Have no idea why Toyota went with this. The footbrake in other models worked fine.
Other then that it's all good. Great car, great price. Should have done it sooner!
