Our 2nd Camry is still a winner.

2000 Toyota Camry CE 4dr Sedan
Terrific, reliable car. We first had a 1990 Camry V6LE, which was sweet beyond reason, so when it came time to trade up, we bought a 2000 Camry CE (budget was a bit tight!). It's still the reliable, top-of-the-line, quality car we know & expect. It's not quite as sporty as our '90 was, and is definitely frumpier, but it still performs like a Toyota should. We also really wondered how it would be to drive a 4-cyl after having had the V6. No worries! We've taken her on several road trips, over mountains/passes, highways, you name it, and she delivers kick when you need it. Plenty of energy and decent gas mileage, to boot. Child safety seats work in this car, but are _difficult_ to install.
Like the window-lock and rear passenger child-safety lock features (we have two small children). Adjustable height seat belt anchors are helpful for us shorties. Can close power windows for 20-30 seconds _after_ you take the key out. Good gas mileage (thank goodness!).
Style is too frumpy, and the seats could be a tad more comfortable. But I'm being pretty picky. Really dislike the stereo's volume control--it's _not_ analog. The rear/trunk could be lower-profile. The view of what's behind you (when backing up) is less than what it used to be, so it's not as safe.
