I bought my wagon used from a private party and am extremely happy I did. With 5 kids it's hard to find something to fit our family, but this does, love the mileage it gets. I also love the fact that as long as you change the oil and tune it up when needed it'll last forever! I will be sad the day it finally dies, but for now I'd take this car across the country if I had to, I trust it more than our other car that's a 99, other than the usual brakes and exaust work occasionally, I haven't had to do anything major. If I could find another one I'd buy it again.
This car has 223k on it and it runs great. Leaks a little bit of oil and the engine has a small problem but that can only be expected after so long. I am looking to upgrade to a newer Camry as I am just waiting for this one to die. Don't understand why Toyota doesn't still make these though.
I traded in my '96 4Runner to buy this '94
Camry wagon because the fuel was better and
the monthly payment was MUCH better. I
thought I'd miss my 4Runner, but I was wrong.
This Camry is so much fun to drive. The 6 Cyl.
engine is so zippy in the wagon compared to
the bulky 4Runner. And I haven't sacrificed
any cargo space, the wagon still accomodates
a large load.
I bought it from a small used car dealership
and it had been well maintained and only had
81,000 miles. I look forward to putting
another 2 or 3 hundred thousand.
I have read that the 6-cyl. engine in this
model is one of the best engines ever made.
This car was said to be in perfect
condition by the toyota people. It was
but once it reached a 100,000 miles
this car became plagued with problems
First the cheesy interior pieces
started squeakin like crazy especiall
the dashboard. Then the radiator began
to leak which had to be repalced by
thte folks at toyota (i serviced the
car at toyota). After the leak my air
conditioner simply "went out" needing
to be replaced. Then the next thing you
know there is a ticking in the top
right wheel which the toyota pros can't
find. Then it began to burn a little
more than 2 quarts of oil a week
After 11 years and 102,000 miles, the
engine is still shiny. No leaks or
emissions of any kind. Just replaced
the starter -- the first mechanical
problem we've had except for the
antenna retracting mechanism.
