My grandfather purchased our 2000 Toyota Camry XLE V6 brand new in fall 1999 fully loaded with all the options and accessories: with only one option lacking: fog lights. I am happy to say no one has suffered as a result. It was effectively a Lexus ES. The 3.0L V6 engine in this car makes it the most responsive car I have ever driven. When I need to pass someone on the highway, it's a snap. I can't imagine having anything less under the hood. Yet it's so quiet at idle that I can barely hear it. This car can barrel down the highway at 80 miles per hour as smooth as silk. I will drive this car forever, or until it dies, which doesn't seem possible anytime soon. It's 100% reliable.
3.0L 24 valve 1MZ-FE V6 engine (same used in Lexuses) JBL 6-disc in-dash CD changer/AM/FM/cassette w/ 8 speakers, power slide/tilt moonroof, leather upholstery, dual power seats, outside temperature gauge, engine immobilizer/keyless entry, 4 cup holders, 60/40 split folding backseat, roomy trunk
I don't really have any suggested improvements for two reasons: 1) They have already been improved upon, as this Camry is 2 generations out of date, and 2) My Camry lacks nothing except a compass. We have had to replace nothing but tires, rotors, brake pads, and the battery since it was new.
