Anyone have opinions on TRs dr
Anyone have opinions on TRs drivabilty, mechanical issues?
II took a 88 TR for a spin Sunday from a small dealership in Woodland Hills,Ca, it stated 25k miles but the interior was thrashed, the leather bolster eaten away and cracks and splits all over
Power seats were shot, as were many indicator lights. I'd say this car over 70k on it in reality at least
I have mixed impressions of the car, it felt very heavy but when you got into the upper rev band it was very fast, much less tossable than my 328 which may be why they are reccomended for GT highway driving.
The dash instrument layout seemed a little dated to me, with the 80s digital clocks and many idiot indicators such as the hoods, brakes etc, it seems they will fail over time and be impossible to replace.
Compared to my 328 the engine seemed deep and quiet until you get in the upper rev band, the V8 seem to have a raspy snarl at all times in the lower revs up to a high pitched whine in the upper.
Definately another neglected TR
