Good all round functional family vehicle.
By francho on
1999 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan
Decent Japanese built vehicle which does everything a family requires from a vehicle well.
Doesn't really impress me greatly in any aspect but never seems to disappoint either. I just purchased it with low miles 60k and it gets real world 28/23 mpg hwy/city. Not too impressive highway mileage but great city economy for a vehicle it's size. Driver's seat
not really up to American comfort standards.
2.2l 4 cyl. lacks a little power off the line but has plenty for uphill pulls on the highway.
Excellent city driving fuel economy.
Good resale value. Steering wheel resistance is like a dream. Very smooth engine/transmission combination. Above average quality stock Cd sound system.
Not looking forward to replacing timing belt at 90k.
This is an expensive hidden cost to owning a lot of Toyotas no one seems to make much of. Most other manufacturers use timing gears that need no replacing.
