1997 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan
Purchased my Camry about a year ago with 202k on it, up to 216k now. Let's see, only things outside of normal maintenance (such as brake fluid flush, replacement of plugs and the original wires, and new tires) have been the replacement of the EGR valve gasket and the replacement of the rear bumper after I was rear ended. The steering rack is on its last legs, and has hiccupped a few times in wet weather, but the Camry has never failed to get me from point A to point B. Handling is fine for a front drive sedan, and the clunking suspension is fine for since it bobs up and down less on the highway then ones in better condition.
Ergonomics are simple and well marked controls. Reliability.
