Toyota Cressida Wagon I

1983 Cressida

Wild Wagon

by MidnightStar: Feb 2, 2000


Pros: High-end power,handling,numerous comfortable with lots of space (w/the wagon,anyway)

My car (and my introduction to the automotive of station wagons) was made a 1983 Toyota Cressida.

If you all station wagons are frumpy family haulers,think again. with a 2.8 liter DOHC six,this big wagon hustles

the engine is wound up. Speaking of engine (code 5MGE) is immortal. I drag-raced my station put off oil

changes and all other maintenance,and it make a peep. My fuel was dead even 20 miles per nearly all conditions.Newer (1987 for newer models as well) had with oil burning due to piston that wore out quickly.

If engineers used a metal instead of a rubber belt for would still be driving the today,and most engines chug along for 200k before needing a mechanic’s

Unfortunately,that awesome engine is by a notoriously complex (the wiring diagrams required a 200+ page manual!)

system that is frequently to failure.

The alternator is mounted the bottom of the engine,and is quite to the damage the elements can deal. to replace the OEM alternator if it hasn’t replaced already.

Handling to be a strong suit of this with my wagon. I could make it fishtail on wet roads in 90 turns at more than 30 per hour! Anything less,and all get are G-forces from the suspension the heavy Cressida in place in and curves.

If you need to haul more than the cargo area for,simply fold

the rear forward-double the space!

Most models come with mirrors,door locks,windows,and radio While nice and convenient,their can lead to disruptive electrical (the power door in my wagon frequently drained the due to an intermittent short in the door relay).

Front seats are fully buckets which are comfortable to for most trips but might to feel rather firm long road trips.

The seats are about average,with for two to be comfortable and three to squeeze in a pinch. Tall back passengers will suffer

lack of legroom if the front are set all the way back.

Drivers interested in their Cressida audio beware: Proprietary wiring,signal and mounting brackets can cause big if you want to yank the Toyota system for an aftermarket system. You need to replace more the speakers in the audio system my AM/FM/Cassette and graphic equalizer in my wagon were on par with audio systems in all categories raw wattage.

If you’d like a family to carry people and equipment don’t want to give up and handling,look at the used Toyota

Just make sure been well maintained,as parts are outrageously expensive!
