I've been driving this car since I
bought it more than twelve years ago.
Its been through so much I don't have
the heart to let it go. I bought the
LE model with power windows, locks and
mirror along with a power moonroof.
Its going to be passed down to my son.
I'm a mechanic by trade so the car is
in fine condition. In fact there is
hardly any rust on this car. I've had
to replace the Transmission but that
was because my wife doesn't know how to
accelerate smoothly and its had some
minor engine work done.
I love the reliability. It has its
share of problems but its never stalled
or failed on me. I have had to change
the alternator and starter-motor a few
times although that is because I tend
to use parts from the scrapyard and
I am a bit disappointed that the body
of new cars is now a large piece. For
instance I had a 2003 Camry come in for
some body work and the poor guy ended
up having to replace the entire rear
segment because his bumper was smashed
in. This change can be seen in all
