1996 Toyota Camry Sedan XLE V6 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this oh so reliable Camry in March 2010 with only 96k miles. I was thinking this car would at least run to 200k or maybe even 300k, but I found out it won't even make it to 130. I have 123 on the clock now, and in the time I had it, I poured over $6500 in repairs. A rebuilt transmission/engine, faulty airbag module, two broken window motors, and a new gas tank. The transmission went out at 100k, and the engine went out at 103k. Now with this "new" engine, it loves to stall at red lights. Not really helpful if I'm stuck on a grade in traffic. Also, the interior quality sucks. My door panels are all cracking and falling off because of weakened clips. Thats quality for ya!


Favorite Features

Decent engine power (When it works), Seats are comfortable, and the cabin is very roomy. The car has many features as well.


Suggested Improvements

Paint quality, Interior quality, and engine

Review

I bought this car when it was 6 years old. It's now 14 years old and I have had no problem with it at all. It has been a very smooth, quiet and reliable car since the beginning. It does not lose any oil and even the paint finish is in good shape. I would have upgraded to a newer version had I not heard all the bad feedback about the build quality of the newer Camry models.


Favorite Features

Reliability. Smooth and quiet drive. The looks. Almost everything about it is good.


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage! Well I know it is a V6, but I think it can be better.

Review

I love my Camry V6 XLE. It is and has been a great reliable car. Since owning it, I have had to minor maintenance but nothing to bad and it is all worth it to keep my car running like new.


Favorite Features

Leather interior, smooth ride, Power engine. I also enjoy the luxury features such as dim to off interior light, power seats etc.


Suggested Improvements

The power windows pretty much suck. Since buying the car the windows have gotten weaker and weaker and really don't seal that well. For being such a luxury car, the windows are crap.
