1996 Camry — For a second car to drive me from home to work and back is great. Drives very well and is very spacious. It is not as powerful as newer models but is enough for a short commute. 205000 and counting

Best Car I Have Ever Owned — Great pickup, very reliable, never broke down on me. From what I understand this is kind of a sports model, so things like springs and the anti-lock brake module may be hard to find or is more expensive to fix.

Definetely Would Buy Another Toyota — these older Camry's are nice commute and family vehicles. Definitely not sporty or flashy, their main advantage as i see it is safety and reliability. The car's design allows for a good view of the the road situation from the drivers seat and it's a large enough car to be easily seen.

It Is A Good Buy And A Perfect First Car For Someone — *The car is a very reliable vehicle * it gets great gas mileage and has not needed a repair yet, * the brakes work well and are quiet. * the front seats are good but if you are over 6' tall you are going to have a little bit of a leg cramp issue, * the interior is nice looking and the back seats are roomy enough for the average person. * the car is not a very safe vehicle. * most of the car is plastic and it is a very light car a decent gust of wind will move the car a fair distance out of your lane on the highway. * Speaking of highways the car is loud as crap once you get to 60 mph the wind noise combined with the high rpms that the engine runs at a somewhat slow speed is very annoying. * the camry is a decent looking little car there is nothing special or outstandish on the car so you probably will not get pulled over as much but it isnt exactly a eye sore either *this car get great gas mileage and parts are cheap to get and easy to find *the car is not really that fun to drive the only exception to that is that it is a smaller car and can get through traffic quite well.

Good Running Cars — Happy with Toyotas and this one too again. Iv had many Toyotas over the years and all have been great cars. Never bought a new vehicle cause I can always get some Toyota that will serve me a long time with a little care on my part.

looks good,handles good,starts right up and drives all day without overheating,good gas mileage,all power

Cons

some weird noise coming out of front right side(maybe in engine or body,not sure) but it doesn't effect anything but a noise?? Also, "Engine Light" just came on 2 months ago but it is not engine problem....Meter says "EVAP" which is probably cheap lil' hose or device because it just passed SMOG with flying colors several months ago!!

Very Good Looking And Drives Good And Fast(if Needed) — Like everything but the dumb noise it makes......Love this camrey but the landlord says one car and I got a new van.......well, if the car had the "NOISE FIXED" and a smog hose or whatever fixed it would be a great car for anything and will go anywhere!!( just drove to LA in 5 hrs averaging 70-80 mph and had no probs 4 months ago!
