The best Toyota ever built
Nothing. Everything works like new. Showroom condition.
My 1985 Tercel 4wd has the original engine, the original transmission, the original paint (still shiny) and the original interior (plaid cloth).
The Tercel wagon set 2 standards when introduced. The design became a model for later concepts still developed today, including Volvo and Honda SUVs. The 4wd off-road capability (which was fairly rare in a wagon style at that time), coupled with phenomenal reliability, made this wagon invincible.
In my particular case, the vehicle has been kept immaculate. There is absolutely no rust. The interior looks just like when it first rolled out of the dealer. To date, everything works, including all interior and exterior lights. At 94000 miles, the car has needed only regular maintenance services. The original struts are still in place with several other Japanese parts.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
