I bought my 94 SE coupe second hand as a trade in at my dealership. I owned the car for 6 years until sadly it was recently totalled. This particular car was one of Toyota's best made vehicles. Never left me starnded, always looked good. Interior layout was the best of any of the Camrys. You could ask for more style, comfort and just an all around great car. A sporty coupe with room for 4 human beings. I can't say enough about my old friend. I would buy another one today if the car was available and as clean as mine was. Anyone in the market looking for a great used car, have a dealer check it out first then enjoy it!! Working for a dealer in sales I have driven them all. Can't beat a 94 SE.
The SE is fully loaded, Stereo was great and I loved the moonroof, wish the coupe came in a 5 speed. Great seats as well and awesome instrumentation. Great overall design.
Except for maintenance items (battery,
new brakes, timing chain, etc) I have
put nothing into this car. It has
never let me down. I would love to
keep it forever. The V-6 is a bit of a
gas hog and does not have "pin you back
in your seat" acceleration, but is fun
The sound system is great.
Openning the trunk dring rain causes
water to get in the trunk.
We've owned this black coupe since it
was a year old, and the reliability has
been astounding. Simply put, it has
never left my wife stranded and broken
down - ever.
And maintenence has been just the
While the 4 cylinder isn't particulary
sporty in nature, this car wasn't
purchased for that purpose... it was
purchased for comfort, decent style and
reliability, and it has delivered all 3
exactly as expected along with great
Reliability and build quality. Ease of
driving and comfort. Fuel economy.
Nice style, still acceptable 10 years
If I was redesigning it, I would add
some headroom (which was done in later
years). Anyone over 6' tall is a tight
fit in this car, even in the adjustable
More torque from the 4 cylinder engine
would be nice, but the V6 is out there
If you get the V6 of the 94-96, be
prepared for maintenance. When I hit
100,000 miles it started to develop
some leaks and have water pump go out.
I did run it hard, but I still expected
more from Toyota.
Having a "Grandma Car" that was a Coupe
V6 and able to beat a lot of stupid
civics was cool.
