Overall a great car

1999 Toyota Camry XLE V6 4dr Sedan
I bought this car back in '06 when I was still in high school, with about 89,000 miles on it. 5 years later and it has 185,000 with no signs of stopping. There have been a couple repairs I have had to do including a costly sensor replacement at the dealership which ran about $1,300. That was back in '09. Then earlier this year, the car wouldn't start and I needed to buy a new air compressor at about $300...All in all a reliable vehicle that has not needed any other major services. The V6 has plenty of power for everyday driving (which here in SW Florida can be both fast-paced and aggravating) and I don't see any reason why this car won't make it to 200k and beyond.
Capable V6, Power moonroof and driver's seat, paint held up great over the years, and except for a couple isolated incidents has been very reliable!
MPG could be better for the car's size...I drive a lot of highway miles but still average about 21, 22MPG if I'm lucky. I used to use the tape player so I could play my iPod in the car but the tape deck no longer functions. Squeaking brakes from time to time even with newer pads, although it isn't a major issue. Ride is rather 'floaty' which is especially noticeable on the highway.
