1990 Toyota Camry Deluxe 4dr Sedan


If you find one of these in decent shape used buy it. Smart design, reliability all around, not hard to work on, easy regular maintenance, not too cramped despite being a small car. If you're savvy with the manual transmission you'll get well over 30mpg. Handles well at high speeds. I got this one a year ago and have put 15,000 miles on it, now at 148k and no problems. Doesn't have the best theft protection though. Mine was stolen and recovered 6 weeks later, a coat hanger through the foam door insulation pops the lock instantly and somehow they started it without a key or hot wiring it. Seems the ignition lock isn't very 'precise'. Invest in a crook lock.

Best Features

Oil filter right on top, if you DRAIN the oil first none pours out onto the engine (duh!). Don't need to jack it up to remove the drain plug either (if you're not too rotund that is). Good acceleration with the stick shift. Everything still works after 18 years!

Worst Features

Not the best traction in snow/rain, rust around the wheels wells. Way too easy to steal.
