I bought this car in 2012 after I got my license, and it really is a great car. Purchased the car at 130k, and I'm current at 216k.
Never had any major problems with it; just the usual standard routine; oil, tires, brakes, struts, and transmission fluid. The only major thing I take in my Camry is for the timing belt, but other than that the car runs amazing.
Seats are super comfortable, and compared to most cars nowadays, there's plenty of leg and head room! And a spacious trunk as well.
I get about 28/29 ish mpg on highway, and just a little bit less on the street.
I bought this car after having bad luck with cars, i call it the summer from hell when i went through two cars due to blown head gaskets. But i relied heavily on these review so i felt obligated to leave one saying it was by far the best decisions i could have ever made i've put almost 6000 miles in about 3 months since I am in the Air force Reserves and live 220 miles from my base. The car had a regular maintenance that i caught it up on, and since hasn't missed a beat. I would buy 3 more right now if I had the money just to keep the quality for when this one finally burns out (it's at 152,000 miles right now). I just don't feel like the quality will ever be this good engine wise.
I love how easy it is to diagnose and how cheap it is to fix, everyone can work on this car since it's so simple and made to be easy to work on.
I have no suggestions for improvements since it's such a great car, except to the owners, if you do a little research on the internet about little things wrong with your car you can usually find a how-to video and fix it yourself if you have just a little bit of mechanical knowledge or the ability to follow instructions
I've done very little maintenance on my LE due to little time and money. This was a 3-year period... the car refuses to die. I'm impressed.
The only complaint I have is the cheap plastic on the door handles, both, inside and out. Be careful not to open the doors too hard. It's a minor issue, but can be considerably annoying at times.
The 1994 XLE Camry is luxury and reliability combined with a cheetah.
Ok, not really a cheetah, more like 185 horses.
I have purchased my Camry pre-owned in '02 and have put over 130k with 265k and counting.
If you want to spend money on other things in life, then I highly recommend buying a Camry and maintain it.
The investment will pay dividends.
I purchased my Camry in 1996, from a single owner. My plan was to drive it for 10 years, then buy a new car, but I just can't seem to part with it. After 14 years, and 200,000 miles, both the interior and exterior look new, with just one speck of rust where the spoiler is attached to the car. The only problem I have run into is that the antenna only goes up half- way, but the reception is still great. I have never put any money into it, other than regular maintenance, and I still get 30 mpg. The engine is incredibly quiet, and the ride is very smooth. I haven't decided which car I will buy next, but I'm sure that it will be a Toyota!
Quiet engine, smooth ride, gas mileage, reliability
