Best Car I've Owned

I bought my 5-speed manual 1995 Camry Coupe in 1997 off lease and it has been a great car for the past 14 years. It's fun to drive, comfortable, roomy, sporty-looking, and reliable. The only major repairs (all when the car was over 15 years old) have been to replace the radiator (had a hole in it), exhaust system from catalytic converter back, and some brake and fuel lines due to rust. Never even needed a brake job and I still have the original clutch at 118,000 miles. Even the battery lasted 12-13 years. Drove my good old Camry on a 240 mile trip last week and it still runs and drives great. My only minor complaint is that the leather seat upholstery was not especially durable. I wish that Toyota still made this car. They have even discontinued the Camry Solara, which was its successor, and they don't make many Camrys with stick shifts any more. The new Camrys aren't bad but I prefer the coupe and the stick shift.

I was given this car by my dad for my first vehicle. It had about 150,000 miles on it, still it ran extremely smooth. I have now had it for 4 years and have maintained it every 5,000 miles just like my dad did. It now has 206,000 miles and no major problems. EXCELLENT car... i predict new brakes soon but i have never had to change them so i suspect that's to be expected. Great car and extremely reliable

Best car for the money!

I have owned my Camry for almost 10 years. This car is an unbelievable value, very reliable, and a quiet, smooth ride. I only occasionally have to repair it, every couple of years. The only annoying repair was a head gasket which costs more for the labor than for the part. Otherwise, this vehicle wore beautifully. The trunk space allows me to schlep all kinds of gardening supplies across town, and the interior is roomy and comfortable. I can't imagine a better car and am loathe to let this one go!

This was the last year that the Camry shared the drive train and body with the Luxus ES 300 with the reasult that it rides like a luxury car. However, I have had an incredible number of problems costing about $4,000. As an example the CV joint boots failed after a few years, a problem I have never had with another car. But never the less it is great riding car.

I've owned my 96 Camry LE V6 for a year and a half now, it is my first car and I am very satisfied with the car! Engine, transmission and interior make it for a very quiet and comfortable ride. Suspension if very soft and it soaks up a lot of the bumps in the road if you like that. I have driven this car in the winter and it always started in the -40 temperature in Montreal. Very good winter car, heat and defrost functions work very well and hear will not make your throat dry like some cars. This car is exceptionally fast for a 19 year old car, the engine still has plenty of potential. What I don't like about the car: Very soft suspension, I would like a much harder ride but that's just me. Brakes also are not as powerful as I would like but then again, they work just fine for normal driving. Overall I am very impressed with this car and would not sell it. I am keeping this car until it can no longer run. I have driven other cars and they always make me miss my Camry! It will be a very sad day when (if) it doesn't run anymore but I can't see that happening any time soon!!

I purchased this car in 2008 with 93,000 mile on it for $1500. It was in good shape, but had some electrical issues that needed to be sorted out. The wiring harness that goes through the front drivers door had some broken wires and I believe the seller just didn't know how to deal with it. I've put about $2000 into the car including the following: wheels, tires, brakes, timing belt, water pump, radiator, cat-back exhaust and miscellaneous items. Most of the work was done myself. The car now has 128,000 miles on it and is extremely reliable. I still have a few things that need attention like a leaking fuel injector and a bad contact in the fuse box that I need to take care of. It could also use new struts and springs, but the parts for these cars are extremely cheap. It's pretty easy to work on, although replacing the timing belt is not fun with the tight clearance to the engine compartment. I drive 52 miles each day round-trip to work with about 1/2 highway and average about 27-28 mpg. The best mileage the car achieved was 34mpg on a long-distance trip with one passenger and about 300 pounds of cargo. The car is cheap to insure and register. It is relatively quiet and is very comfortable to drive. It has a reasonable amount of power for a 4 cylinder. I do find that I prefer to leave the automatic transmission in "power" mode as it moves the shift point to a higher rpm. It shifts closer to what I would do with a manual transmission. I don't do jackrabbit starts by any means so this is the best acceleration/economy setting. The Camry might not be the most glamorous car, but it's cheap, comfortable, and most importantly, reliable transportation around.

I bought it brand new. All I had to spend money on was tires, brakes, air filter, and other low cost necessities. Right now at about 150,000 miles, it was time to sell. No pricey repair was done. The transmission and engine is still strong. Oil is change every 5,000 miles because of full synthetic. Every 30,000 miles the radiator is flush with O.E. red antifreeze, replacing upper and lower hoses and not to mention the replacing the thermostat. The transmission service is done with Toyota Type 4 fluid, new pan gasket and new filter.
