My Favorite Car So Far — This was my first car, and that will always have a spot in my heart for it. Build Quality: The front struts gave out, the gas latch didnt work, the trunk needs to be manually opened, the battery got disconnected a lot, it once started leaking break fluid, if you fill it up past 3/4 of a tank it starts to leak, and the muffler is giving out. Its still my favorite car to drive. I got a new car, and left it outside for most the winter. When i tried to turn it on in the summer, it started right up. No sputtering or complaining, roaring like a lion. At over 250k miles, and still going strong, i know ill be enjoying this car for a long time. Performance: It handles amazingly, with no power steering or brakes I could really have complete control over it. Winter was no problem, as the control it had in slush was increadable. It had amazing pickup for a middle class car. Apperance: It was comfortable for me, being 6'3'', and had great feel to it. After driving a Ford F150, Saturn Vue, and a Buick Regal, I still prefer this car. I had cloth interior, which was comfortable in any weather, unlike leather. The outside looked pretty bad, due to 15 years of scratches and dings, but the general body of the car wasnt too bad. Its no fararri, but its not unsightly. Cost of Ownership: I bought it for 500$, and i feel like ive gotten my money's worth. Where other cars have failed me, this car has never left me stranded. It gets good milage, though i never tracked it. Nothing unusual about the maintenance. Fun Factor: Oh yes, i love driving it. Its small and meneuver in traffic. It has amazing pickup, and can get to high speed very quickly. It was so much fun to drive.

You Have A Teenager Who You Want To Know Has A Reliable Car This Is For Them. — Car is made to be driven every day for years on end, performance is solid, breaks are great and handles like any 4 door family sedan should. This is not a fun but smart car to drive. This is one of the most dependable cars made, guaranteed to last well over 200,000 miles. now cheap to buy and easy to find still over 30 miles to the gallon highway around 23 miles city.

A Strong Work Horse To Rely On... — The 1993 Toyota camry has a grand look from the outside, its a car you'll love without a prior knowledge but on a closer look, you may be disappointed if you are a car freak. I thought i had the best buy until i used it and just after 6 months i'm tired of the car. I insited on a V6 engine thinking i can enjoy the power such an engine brings but it lacks good acceleration. i feel bad when i have to be competing with regular 4 cylinder engines despite the fact i'm burning more fuel. It's a bad car to drive at night, the lights don't see nothing unlike the Honda. The interior is simple though but okay for a 1993 model, the unfoldable mirror is a disadvantage in a horrible traffic city like Lagos, Nigeria. The doors don't have any resistance and so a slight shut give a sound like it was slammed by eight hefty men. Its not all a bad car, its got good qualities too like a balanced and quiet ride and the a/c system is impressive. The self diagnostic feature is very nice too and takes a lot of stress of the user if you have the manual. The car is very rugged, after 109,000 miles of hard driving, it is still waxing stronger and it nevers gives up, with proper maintenance its a car that can take the heat of a hard way.

Its A Beast — V6 Manual that is extremely fun to drive. Has most of the options, a kick-butt sound system, and a sunroof. Very quick off the go. You can't beat the price and the mpg. This car rocks, i reccomend it to any manual lovers.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Fantastically reliable, safe and somewhat quick. Features a 2.3 DOHC engine. Build quality is nice too. Somewhat comfortable seats. 133,000 miles of pure abuse and still going strong!

Cons

Being a mid-90s Camry, its pretty minimal, so there's not too many goodies. Even in the XLE. Its also ugly, very ugly. And bland.

Tough-as Nails — Fantastically reliable, safe and somewhat quick. Features a 2.3 DOHC engine. Build quality is nice too. Somewhat comfortable seats. 133,000 miles of pure abuse and still going strong! Also, being a mid-90s Camry, its pretty minimal, so there's not too many goodies. Even in the XLE. Its also ugly, very ugly. And bland. ECT button makes me feel like 007 and green and black themed instruments feel well connected and sharp. Good car as its only had the oil filter and radiator replaced, and that's with abuse that you wouldn't even believe. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnWKz7Cthkk

Pros

310,000 miles and counting... past replacements:  a/c compressor, starter, distributor (twice), brake and clutch cylinders, radiator, fuel filter, fuel pump, wheel bearings, still have original starter

Cons

small oil leak persists despite non-mechanical solutions--use oil sealant (heavy duty kinds);  probably seal around oil pump is leaking slowly (same problem in 1992-2002 models); can ignore if you put some clay absorbant (cat littler works) where the drip area persists.

Great Little 93 Manual 5-speed Camry Dx — In it's day it was a medium sized commute car, but now it's an economy car compared to the newer Camrys. Also have a 2000 Camry XE and wife has a 2006 LE which make the 1993 looks ultra simple to maintain and service. Book may say it's not worth anything, but on-the-street pricing is between $2500-$2600 in my area on auto sales sites whether dealer or private sale.

Dream Car — this car had 134K on it when we got it. It has been through 2 college students and has 250K on it now. I wish I had bought it new, i look for these cars now with hopes of getting another one for my youngest. These cars are the best thing on the road dollar for dollar, mile for mile.
