Bought this car brand new in May of 1994 and used to commute to work daily for 14 years without any failure. Mileage today is 476,000 miles. Original engine, no major engine failure. Maintenance is the usual timing belt, and tune up only, changed water pump, radiator and clutch once, about 4 years ago. Everything else is still original.
Been driving this Camry for 4 years now, have put
on about 60k miles on it. Very reliable but has had
trouble (a handful of times) starting in cold
weather. Everything works great. Average gas
mileage is 21 or 22mpg. I get a bad smell from the
A/C (but Lysol has helped with that). Has better
turning radius than Accord. All of this said, this car
has not endeared itself to me like the 1987 Acura
Legend that it replaced (or 1978 Volvo 245 before
Reliability, looks nice
Fix the cold weather start up, more power, better
gas mileage, fix the a/c smell
