Just how great are these old tercel sr5 wagons? That and an amc eagle wagon are my two main contenders for second car, but I wanted to hear from OPPOs that have owned one. I’ve heard the tcase is kinda weak, which is my main concern, would I blow it up on surfaces that are only slightly slippery? The tercel is way cooler, especially with the plaid and inclinometer, but I’ve read there’s not much in the way of easy upgrades/mods out there, whereas the amc has the benefit of jeep fanbois (pronounced FAN-bwah). Either way, I don’t want to put my NC through another winter, and could use something bigger on occasion.

Pictured below- the ideal.
