Vehicle2000 Toyota Camry LE V6 4dr Sedan
ReviewI bought this car in 2000 and has use for 154,000 miles till today. Had it maintenance with oil service ( 4 quarts of SAE 5W30 oil preferred for Toyota 1MZ-FE engine good for fuel economy and good starting in cold weather) with oil filter changed @ 4,ooo miles as recommended by the manufacture or penzoil synthetic oil $20(Kmart) @6,000 miles. Had my coolant flush at about @50,000 miles with 1 gallon of antifreeze coolant $18 at toyota dealer. Had my 1 gallon DextronII transmission fluid $10 done @50,000 miles. Front Brake pad ($40pad+ $40labor)change @40,000miles and Back brake pad change@ 70,000miles. Battery change @6years. Windshield wiper change @5years. Tires change@40,000miles.
Best FeaturesTiming belt,fan belt, water pump belt @ 96,000miles. Tune up 6 spark plug@ 60,000miles. Engine light on @ 120,000 with EGR insufficient flow which fail for smog check. EGR system cost $158, EGR valve , EGR sensor need to be check dealer estimate diagnostic test $90 even i know the code & cost more
Worst Featuresimprove low front could damage front bottom if pass low bumpy curve, fuel filter hard to reach if need to change, last 2 spark plugs are hard to reach if need to change, transmission plug need a hex to unscrew the nut
