1999 Toyota Camry LE V6 4dr Sedan


Review

My 99 Camry has 285,000 miles on it. Nothing has been done to it except regular maintenance like the timing belt and oil change. It still has the original motor and engine. I'm looking for other cars in case this one just break down but so far I've haven't had any problems! I had this care since 99 and I LOVE it. The speakers are great and nothing is more reliable. Toyota needs to go back to making cars like they did in 1999!


Best Features

Great gas mileage. Great reliability. Everyone asks where I get my speakers but it came stock!


Worst Features

Suspension is kind of week.

1999 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan


Review

My 1999 Camry 2.2 that I got this year is about to have 258,xxx miles. Head gaskets have never been replaced! It still runs great even the way I drive it! I've added a short ram intake, strut tower bar and new plugs and wires. The strut tower bar is highly recommended and the intake makes it about twice as loud and deep, great sound. The check engine light comes and goes but it's never anything major. Both driver side windows are out, I wish all cars had crank windows.


Best Features

Exterior styling, big 4cyl.


Worst Features

Strut tower bar, and minor suspension upgrades.

Review

My dad bought this car with 10,000 on it back in 2003 and then put 212,000 miles on it. We took care of the basics and it still runs exactly like new maybe better. I got it and put some performance parts on (cold air intake, racing plugs, new struts etc.) This car has never let either of us down and if the odometer did not say it had 218,000 miles on it, no one driving it or riding in it would think any thing else but it was a new car.


Best Features

The smooth ride both before and after the new struts is amazing. There are times when you would think you were riding in a Cadillac. The trunk is also very spacious. I could it a way bigger system in it than I already have and still have room to take things with me.The acceleration isn't bad either

Review

2nd owner, 1st had to replace engine due to oil sludge problem. 65k on new engine and its sludging up again. 3.0 Toyota engine is worse than an old jag V6 and is part of a settled class action lawsuit (to late for me though), terrible fuel mileage, boring styling, coma inducing character. Only thing it does well is blow really cold air. Toyota's PR people should win an academy award or run for congress with the acting and lies to consumers about Toyota build quality.


Best Features

Air conditioning. Speakers sound good for factory units.


Worst Features

Reliability. Oil is changed every 3k without fail, it doesnt matter. Engine is crap and transmission not suited for US highways (2500+ rpm for 70 mph) have to do 55 to get revs at 2k rear end ratio needs another gear.

1999 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan


Review

For the first 4 years of ownership the Camry seemed to hold up well. On the fifth year, things started to fall apart. The rubberized door handle started to separate from the door switch module. Then the radio went out. Then the car started to smoke when starting up in the morning. This was probably due to the slug problem. The oil was changed regularly at 4000 too. Then the metal clip on the gas door broke, keeping the door from opening. Finally the clearcoat on the hood started to chip off. This after doing regular washing and waxing. What did hold up well was the material on the seats and the had no rattles. But that wasn't enough to keep it for another year.


Best Features

Quiet ride.


Worst Features

Better paint. More powerful engine.
