Not such a supra idea

Asked by Steve

MY SON wants to buy a 1997 non-turbo Toyota Supra, but I am worried about him buying a 12-year-old car, particularly regarding availability of spare parts and if any major flaws were found later in these models. Am I overcautious about it or are they still worth buying?

YOU are right to be concerned. Toyota builds sound cars and the Supra is one of them, but in Australia it's an orphan without support from the factory. Added to which it's 12 years old and increasingly likely to break down, and when it does you're left in the hands of small importers for parts. I couldn't recommend you buy one.
