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!)

electrical system that is prone to failure.

The alternator is near the bottom of the engine,and is vulnerable to the damage the elements can Expect to replace the OEM alternator if it been replaced already.

seems to be a strong suit of car,even with my wagon. I only make it fishtail on wet in 90 degree turns at more 30 miles per hour! Anything all you’ll get are G-forces from the holding the heavy Cressida in in turns 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!
