80,000 miles, 14 years old, and still going strong. The Toyota Camry, one of the best cars ever made. Very quiet drive, smooth transmission, lots of space for people and stuff, the 4 cylinder engine can handle this 1.5 ton car remarkably well. I get about 27-29 MPG with a lot of town driving and a little highway. This car gets its primary power around 4,000 to 5,500 RPM. Good torque for being a 4 cylinder compared to its horsepower. Even over 100mph, there were not vibrations and everything was smooth and in control. Overall this car has a comfortable and quiet drive, and has the reliability of a Toyota to get you there.
The ride, power everything, good gas mileage for a 1.5 ton car. Well made engine and transmission. Reliability!!!
Well this car isnt a sports car, but for me I guess it could have a more powerful engine, with a 5 or 6 speed auto and maybe a 6 speed manual a valuable. Steering is a little soft and the corning isnt the best. Sportier look. Not a big deal cause this car is great how it is.
I bought this car with 30,000 miles in 1997. It now has 221,000 miles and has never failed. The car burns no oil and has no oil leaks. I keep thinking about buying a new car, but this one won't die. The only defective item was the electric antenna that died at 110,000 miles. Used replacement was expensive at $100.
Over all a great car. 80,000 miles on it and you couldn't tell. My gas mileage is great for a 1.5 ton car. 28 MPG. Smooth ride with smooth shifting. Not very powerful and has a lot of body roll but it's not a sports car and never was made to be. It has a good 4 cylinder engine that can move the car like it was intended to. I like the torque this car puts out for being a 4 cylinder. To me this is a true luxury car. This car is reliable and i bet i will have it for many many more years.
Great ride, nice medium size, quiet at high speeds, with no vibration over a 100 mph, very economical for size, comfort, and dependability!!!
Luxury class- great but maybe a little more power. Family sedan- maybe a little more power if hauling many kids around. Younger person like me- lot more power, 5 speed auto or 6 manual transmission. Stiffer suspension.
I bought this car in November of 2004 with 122,000 miles on the odometer. I paid more than book because one-owner Camrys with all the background are hard to find. I've put 54,000 miles on it and have replaced the timing belt, windshield, brakes, front struts and 2 O2 sensors. It is always reliable and gets between 24 and 27 mpg. I love this car and plan on keeping it until something expensive breaks. It does not use a drop of oil between changes.
Comfort, ride, dependability, size
Cup holder, suspension could be stiffer, a little more pep.
