The JZX100 is held in high regard by most enthusiasts thanks to its timeless styling, reliability, and a plethora of aftermarket support. This unmolested 1996 Toyota Chaser Tourer S is offered with a mere 82k verified and documented miles, and features the well-known 2.5 liter 1JZ-GE. It balanced rear-drive layout is complimented by a full slate of amenities to go toe-to-toe with Toyota’s more expensive, flagship cars. Finished in Ebony Teal Pearl (6N9), set off by a set of OEM Toyota rainguards and a fully functioning power parking pole, the paint is in awesome condition aside from a few light scratches, dings, and scuffs, associated with regular use. This turn-key example was well taken care of in its prior life in Japan, and is fresh off a recent service here stateside. Whether you’re looking for a reliable daily driver, or a family weekend cruiser this JZX100 will not disappoint and is a true Japanese Classic.

Inside the spacious cabin, which can comfortably seat five, the dark gray cloth seats are plush and still soft to the touch, lacking major rips, stains, sun fade, or wear. The headliner and carpets also show extremely well with no major stains or peeling. The driver benefits from power windows, power locks, and power-folding mirrors, as well as a fully functioning audio system providing entertainment on long drives. Adding peace of mind for the driver, Toyota equipped the Chaser with dual front SRS airbags along with a tilt and telescoping steering column to allow for the perfect driving position. Impressively it even has dual side SRS airbags as well. If saftey is important to you the airbags alone add some peace of mind and for nighttime driving this sedan includes the factory OEM HID adjustable headlamps. The trunk is complete and retains its factory spare, jack, and tool kit. This is not to say the interior is perfect, the dash does show minor lifting around the defrost vents, and the left rear door card does have a small tear. The digital auto climate control is fully functional supplying heat on demand and the A/C blows cold at the moment. For a 25-year-old classic this interior has held up well and even retains its factory owners' manuals located in the glove compartment.

Under the hood sits the 1JZ-GE delivering a healthy 197hp to the rear wheels through a smooth-shifting 5-speed automatic gearbox. Known for its reliability this 2.5L inline-six is fresh off a recent oil and filter service and jumps to life with the turn of the key, thanks to a new 12v battery. Acceleration is adequate for daily use and sustained highway driving is comfortable. The factory suspension delivers an untroubled ride and gobbles up potholes without hesitation. While cornering you will notice very little body roll, and with the addition of four new Falken tires, the car stays firmly planted to the road with little to no cabin noise. The power-assisted steering is light and receptive, and the brake pedal feels firm and responsive making back road and city driving very pleasing. As an affordable and comfortable daily driver, it's hard to beat the JZX and its price point.
