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.
