1998 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan


Purchased mine with 95K in 2005 (with no carfax) and it now has 160k in 2011.
Since then I have had normal expected maintenance, breaks, battery, and tires. And then some things I did not expect,
1) Work to the front left axle or bearings.
2) a Bushing in the rear end. 3) Overheating engine caused by a failing water pump assembly. and 4) dripping oil beneath the car.
5) a Dear ran into the side of my car causing a huge dent in the rear quarter panel.
The car shows exterior signs of damage from a previous owner, possibly a rear end collision.???
In six year the car has cost me
about $.10 cents per mile for maintenance. (including body damage repair costs), if
This car is great!
