1983 Toyota Tercel Wagon SR5 4WD 1.5L gasoline from North America
Current mileage @ 189,500:
Alternator had been replaced.
Cooling fan had been replaced.
Starter had been replaced.
No oil leaks, but engine burns oil and has been bone dry many times before refilling!
AC not working (like that when I bought it in 2006).
Clutch wheel re-sanded at 158,000.
I bought this car from its original owner in 2006, and this is a 1983 Toyota Tercel Wagon SR5, and I love this car so much.
Car is fun to drive, super reliable, super cheap on gas, smooth suspension (feels like a luxury car), and lots of comments from others.
This car is not super fast, but it has good enough speed to not get any speeding tickets. This has greatly helped me in keeping the metal off the pedal!
I was thinking of getting a newer car, but had changed my mind because this is a great little car that I can't possibly get rid of it!
The repairs have been minor, and I will keep this little classic car. I just wish Toyota would make the Tercel Wagon SR5 again with its original body shape and style, I'd buy it brand new!
Quality product for such a low cost. Original owner paid $10,000 in 1983 brand new!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
