  • What's New for 1996

    The 1996 Toyota Camry remains virtually unchanged from last year's model.

Oh, what a feeling!

Vehicle: 1996 Toyota Camry DX 4dr Sedan

This Toyota is rolling right along. I bought it with 19,000 miles as a lease turn in. I now have 203,000 miles on it and still a daily driver. NO major repairs. Just batteries, tires, water pump and timing belt. It's one thing to pay the upfront cost, but then the maintenance cost over the years is where this car shines.




Keeps on going

Vehicle: 1996 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan

We bought our 96 LE Sedan ( basic LE, no additional options ) in 1999 with about 34K on it. Still own it and drive it every day, one of the best cars I've ever owned. Had to replace an AC sensor a few years back and solenoid contacts last year, but other than that noting but oil changes and routine maintenance. Still gets 30mpg plus on the highway too. Boring to look at and drive, but very economical, reliable and an all around great car.




Still driving it after 12

Vehicle: 1996 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan

In May 1996 I bought this 4 cylinder Camry LE and added only the ABS as the only option. Now a little over 12 years later I am still driving her and she has been great. The original engine was replaced in June 2006 because some idiot decided to rev the engine past the red zone on the tachometer which resulted in it blowing up and shooting a piston through the oil pan but the guy owned up and paid to have a brand new engine from Japan installed and currently has 20,000 miles on it. The old engine did have a slight oil leak but now the new one will last at least 100K. Gas mileage is much better than my sister's 01 Accord V6 and even though the 4 is underpowered, I'll take the better gas any day




Gas saver & builded to

Vehicle: 1996 Toyota Camry DX 4dr Sedan

Got this car with 116,000 on it. Paid 2800.00.The same day the car overheated. Keep the car anyway. Changed the head block, radiator, water pump and most of the cooling system. Since it has been the Dream Car, seriously. Just regular serviced: change oil & filter. Great with gas and also very reliable. If you need a cheap car, make sure you get one that lasts. And I believe the Camry fits this description, without hypes.




Got the feeling?

Vehicle: 1996 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan

On my 96 camry i had to replace the charcoal canister 2x in 2 years. i feel as though the camry is not as reliable as one would expect from toyota. Also the brakes on the LE aren't that great either because of the disc/drum setup, you have to plan ahead to make a smooth stop or else there will be excessive nosedive as well as the car stopping to a jerking motion. Acceleration with the 4cyl runs out of pep after 0-40mph. this car isn't made to go fast but it is a good commuter cruiser car. Not intended for those with a lead foot.
