After owning several American-made cars, this was definitely the BEST all around car I've had. There have been issues over the years with the electrical and little things beginning to break off (broken door handle, etc), but I think this is attributable to its age. It still runs with the best of them, a nice smooth ride and solid construction. I am still driving it, current mileage 211K. If I'd have maintained it better (regular oil changes, tires, etc) like a good car owner, no telling how long this car may last.
Can't think of a single thing, it's more the complete package.
When I got my first car at 16 I drove around in an SL-1 Saturn 1995. Then I decided after a couple of years to try out an older Toyota to try out the dependability on my own. I must say this thing has nothing stopping it. Bought it at 129,000, and now I have 160,000 on it. The only things I've had to replace on it in two years was a new distributor, an engine mount, and the timing belt.
The best thing about this car is its ride quality and fuel economy for its size. The true fuel economy for this model is 20 city, 27 hwy. Its a 2.2 liter engine, which is .2 shy of the new ones and about 40hp less than the new one.
One of my major suggestions is to keep the Camry sporty and minimal. No need for fancy gadgets. I like the way my old one looks better than the new ones.
I love my Camry. It is very quick for an old/cheap car. I haven't received any major problems with it since other than replacing the radiator once and a few oil leaks. The interior is nice when comparing to other cars in it's years and price.
The ECT power button in the car is amazing.
Driver's seat is uncomfortable. Doors are not that strong. I was in an accident and it was smashed while the other car had no sign of wear or tear. However, the 94+ models have reinforced doors a mechanic told me.
I bought it used at 177,000 for the original owner. It had been well maintained. It only needs regular oil changed and tune ups, the power in this car is great, and I have to say that it's okay on gas. I've been rear- ended twice with no need to go to a body shop. Now at 277,000 the transmission is going and I think I have to buy a new car, but this car has taken me everywhere I fancied with absolutely no problem.
Cruise control, power windows, anti- lock brakes, and pretty spacious.
The passenger cup holder is useless when the car is in park. The low beams are really low, and I won't turn on the high beams unless necessary because they are way doing their job.
we bought the Car for a reliable, fuel efficient vehicle. It did its job. When our family got bigger we outgrew the car. Around town we would still keep it. However we need something bigger with a two kids. I see it as an old man car but Toyota makes a quality car. Ours is a little over 150,000 and still runs great.
Gas mileage 22-32 mpg, smooth ride, did not have to pump money into it on repairs, and comfortable
