purchased 5/1990 , new 3000 mi Demo. Regular service 3000 mi. and maintained. Drives nicely. Cruise control, drivers window, 2 lowest levels of heater, AC fan not operating. Some rust, especially right rear fender, some on left rear fender. Touches of rust on front fenders. White with golden tan upholstery. Used daily for local driving and has been dependable.
Excellent all around vision, reason for keeping so long . Tires still good.
I bought this car from the original owner who took great care of it about 6 weeks ago. I have to say this is the best used car I have ever bought. I can't believe this car is 16 years old. I have owned newer cars that were not as "modern" as this feels. Solid as the day it was built. With only 130,000 miles it's still got a LOT of life left in it. It runs like new, looks great. Everything about the feel of this car is great.
First time Toyota buyer. Bought it with
88000 miles on it. Near perfect
condition, inside, out, engine were
super clean. Had vibration in steering
wheel, replaced tires and that fixed it.
It did have a high cold idle problem,
cleaned idle control valve and idles
much lower at startup. Now engine light
comes on for minute just as engine warms
up, I think it's a EGR Temp Sensor
(Common on Calf. Camry's), tried
cleaning it, didn't work. May try
putting resistor in the connector like
others have done to see if that works.
Car does seem to be well made. Hope it
lasts as long as others say it will, but
time will tell.
Smooth transmission. Decent gas
mileage. Pretty comfortable seats.
Overall workmanship of the car,
especially electrical and mechanical. I
like the "Power" button on the transmission.
Frame stiffness. Automatic seat belts.
Center console. Could use a little
more horsepower, although I'm used to a
newer V6 24V engine. New brakes squeak,
seems to be an issue with these cars.
