Affordable, reliable, and just as recognizable as its turbocharged brethren this GX100 is one hot Japanese Classic! Our 1997 Chaser Avante has racked up a scant 46k verified/documented miles over the years and is finished in a slick White Pearl Tricoat (057). Save for a replacement of the rear bootlid, there's not much to complain about exterior wise and OEM rainguards and privacy tint work to spruce up the otherwise factory fresh looks. Ideal for daily duty, extensive road trips, or jaunts to your local late night cruise-in, these GX chasers take well to modification and are easy to service to boot! A Japanese icon at a competitive price, we're obsessed with the X100 platform!

The interior is finished in a supple tequila-colored cloth that assumes an almost velvet like texture. Better yet, the cockpit is flush with power amenities to make daily driving in the 21st century a breeze. The seats are free of any serious defects and have resisted the past couple of decades on the road with hardly a rip or stain. Additionally, the dash materials show well and dual front and side SRS airbags are on hand for occupants with safety in mind. The driver gains a power adjustable seat and some additional lumbar support, and the steering column tilts and telescopes to dial in an ideal driving position. The center stack frames a simple to use automatic climate control system. Trudging into the cold winter ahead, hot heat is on standby and the A/C works too! The adjacent OEM audio system pumps out tunes at above average quality, although a replacement US-compatible unit is likely in the cards for the next owner. All four power windows go up and down without a hitch, and the power locks and power folding side mirrors work too! For those in colder climates, the windshield and side mirrors are heated and help to make chilly morning commutes a bit easier. The rear seats are plush, spacious, and as a whole this cabin really has it all! 

The 1G-FE under the bonnet excels in many areas. It's frugal to operate, sips fuel, and is easy to service too! Ours is fresh off an oil and filter service and we replaced the valve cover gasket to button this one up against any unwanted leaks of lubricant. The engine air filter, fuel filter, and thermostat were replaced as a bit of a preemptive tune-up, and with the maintenance performed it zips right up to highway speeds without issue. The automatic shifts smoothly and throws power predictably at the rear wheels. The suspension comfortably glides over road imperfections large and small and we installed new lower control arms up front and brand new struts to give the drivetrain a true turn key experience. The steering is light and on point and the brakes clamp down hard. Further aiding traction, comfort, and stability, we put fresh Falkens on all four corners and performed a four wheel alignment to get this GX ready to rock!
