1996 Toyota Camry DX 2dr Coupe


Bought in '05 with 148000 kms in perfect condition. Very well built (much better than most new cars), incredibly reliable, but a bit boring. The V6 is very smooth and quiet but it lacks low end torque and seems to bog if you step on it. Ride is very smooth but floaty and needs to be more controlled. Steering is not very sharp. Tranny shifts well most of the time, but short shifts in normal mode and hangs on to revs too much in power mode. Quality of materials and build is awesome. Leather is excellent quality but front seat padding is hard and pinches the thighs. Overall a very good car with some minor shortcomings.

Best Features

Reliability, build quality, smooth and quiet, up to 37mpg (imp gals) on the hwy, feels like it will last forever.

Worst Features

Boring to drive, engine lacks torque, ride should be as smooth yet be much more controlled, front driver's seat is hard and uncomfortable, poor headroom with sunroof, not as quiet as some newer vehicles (to be expected).
