I purchased this car for $8500 and it
had only 34,000 miles. The engine was
clean and it ran perfect. The tires need
replacing (stock tires), the interior
needed some cleaning up, and the
flex-pipe for the exhaust was replaced
(covered under warranty); but other than
that the car is very sound. It has a
2.0L 4-cylinder engine with 5-speed
manual transmission. At first I was
wanting the automatic trans but with the
high gas prices and the extra oomph with
the manual, I'm glad I actually
purchased it with the 5-speed.
Reliability is my favorite feature.

Also--believe it or not--I really like
the styling of these Camrys. The car
drives very well and you can comfortably
make long trips without a punishing ride.
Toyota has addressed the problem with
the lack of horsepower in the 4cyl in
the newer models. You can now order a
4cy+auto trans with power to spare. I'd
love to see Toyota make a hybrid Camry.
