First time Toyota buyer. Bought it with
88000 miles on it. Near perfect
condition, inside, out, engine were
super clean. Had vibration in steering
wheel, replaced tires and that fixed it.
It did have a high cold idle problem,
cleaned idle control valve and idles
much lower at startup. Now engine light
comes on for minute just as engine warms
up, I think it's a EGR Temp Sensor
(Common on Calf. Camry's), tried
cleaning it, didn't work. May try
putting resistor in the connector like
others have done to see if that works.
Car does seem to be well made. Hope it
lasts as long as others say it will, but
time will tell.
Smooth transmission. Decent gas
mileage. Pretty comfortable seats.
Overall workmanship of the car,
especially electrical and mechanical. I
like the "Power" button on the transmission.
Frame stiffness. Automatic seat belts.
Center console. Could use a little
more horsepower, although I'm used to a
newer V6 24V engine. New brakes squeak,
seems to be an issue with these cars.
I found a V6 Camry that was faithfully
maintained by the previous owner and
couldn't be happier with my purchase.
With over 160K miles it still feels
like a new car. No sports car
handling, but smooth quiet and
completely reliable. Driving this car
it is easy to forget how old it is.
Silky smooth V6 is quick. Ride is very
smooth, though not sporty.
Nothing. Remember this year is smaller
than the newer models. Still big
enough for fair amount of people or
I've got 197,700 miles on my Camry and
it still runs great! Not sure you can
kill these vehicles. Everything
remains in excellent working
condition, including power locks,
power windows and air conditioning
that often are problematic on some
other older vehicles. I've spent less
than $2,000 on repairs and maintenance
on this car over the last 10 years,
including wear and tear items like
tires and brakes.
Reliability, creature comforts like
power windows and locks.
Frame is starting to creak and I'm
told this is a common occurance.
Spoils what otherwise is a vehicle
that performs as well today as the day
I bought it.
My parents purchased the car last year
at 192K and now has 206K and the engine
is still running great. It's a
stickshift and I enjoyed driving it.
The car is mine now since my parents
got a 96Le. The only major problem with
the car right now is that it has a
major clutch problem and is required to
replace the whole set costing around
340 bucks which is not too bad for a
car of that age. It has a 4 cyl and
you'd be amazed the power it has. But
as soon as it got fixed I am planning
to use it well because I know those
engine's last forever and I am not the
first person who said that.
nice interior and exterior styling,
manuel transmission, smooth 4 cyl
engine, great gas mileage, decent
stereo w/ 4 speakers, and a reliable
More firm suspension, comfortable
interior material, normal seatbelts I
never liked the automatic seatbelts.
My car has 242,000 miles and it still
runs great. It has some minor quirks,
but overall this is a fantastic car.
I forsee it running for another 50,000
miles with regular maintaince. By the
way, it has NEVER broke down on me.
