Should i buy a 1982 Toyota Cressida or 1986 Volvo DL (both wagons)?
The Cressida has 200,000 miles, a little smaller. The speedomiter and odometor dont work and some cosmetic issues inside. and other than that it seems sound but im not sure what kind of problems it may have.
The Volvo has 240,000 miles and is kind of cool looking. My neighbor has an 86 Volvo wagon that has over 300,000 miles on it and still has no major problems. In this one that im looking at The heater doesnt work and one of the windows doesnt roll down and has some door handle problems. It will probably need brake work soon.
They both seem to run well and both have wear and tear considering how old they are but for the most part no immediate problems for vintage station wagons. I have two little girls and am a worker and a student in Portland, Oregon. The price is the same for the vehicles. I cant decide which may be better.
Both are fine cars, but I rather have the Volvo. Can you find a better one than your neighbor’s? Don’t like it when the heater does not work, although you can easily get new parts.
