I've had my 93 wagon for over ten years now and the wiring hasn't been a big upgrade over the 80s wiring. Mine has some type of teflon insulated engine wiring and that gets hard from heat and exposure which then cracks and spits open. Especially anywhere there is a bend. So wiring should be checked carefully on any 240 that you are considering for purchase these days.
