customer feedback

2000 Mitsubishi Delica Super Exceed LWB

Just a quick email to say thank you to you and your team for doing such a great job for us in securing a wonderful car. It certainly seems sound enough, we just had the mechanic go over it and all it needed was the steering arms replaced and the bushes.

So thanks again Ben. We appreciate all you did for us and the courteous and professional attention you gave us and the way you streamlined a totally unfamiliar process for us. We are looking forward to many more adventures.

Toyota Mark X

The 130 series Toyota Mark X was released in 2009 to positive reviews, the fine balance of luxury and sports performance being very improved upon from the earlier Mark X that it succeeded.

The Mark X is a 4 door, rear wheel drive sports luxury vehicle featuring a 234kW (319hp) engine with excellent, refined power with quite reasonable fuel economy for a car of this size and performance. The 3.5L 2GR-FSE engine with VVT-i is largely the same as that found locally in the Lexus GS350, Lexus IS350 and Toyota Crown, improvements to this engine incorporate Toyota's DS4-S twin injection fuel system which combines both traditional port injection as well as direct injection into the combustion chamber. This allows for both impressive power, but smooth and ecnonomical driving under normal conditions.

Other interesting changes to the new model include a drive by wire system with both electronic throttle and electronic steering, the latter allowing more responsive steering at lower speeds. While the engine and drive train is shared with Lexus and Toyota models, the chassis also shares many components with the Lexus GS luxury sedan and Toyota Crown.

Standard and optional features include:

6 speed tiptronic auto 3.5L 234kW V6 engine
Paddle shift transmission Variable gear ratio steering
Steering wheel controls Smart key entry and start with remote boot release
Front, side and curtain airbags Push button start
Power front seats Power steering column

There were also some special ediitons of the Mark X, though these are relatively rare. The Vertiga version by Modellista features a different body kit, wheels and suspension, and the G's variant by Gazoo Racing features a different and agressive front bumper, bigger wheels, suspension and interior changes. Modeilista also made a very rare +M Super Charger version, however this is not eligible for import as the costs of emissions testing this vehicle are extremely high, and a mere 200 were made.
