Reliable Ride — Very reliable car. Toyota knows how to build something solid. I would probably buy something like this in the future. Now they come a lot bigger and much more horse power. Overall I would rate it a A minus :D

Pros

Quality, comfort, powertrain, cost of ownership

Cons

Not too great of gas mileage, but not bad for V6

Toyota Camry Le V6 — Acceleration was pretty good, since it had a 3.0L V6. It was very reliable. For the few years we've owned it, I don't recall any repairs. It looks.. typical Toyota. It was cheap to own other than gas mileage. It wasn't fun to drive, but neither are most Toyota's.

Reliable — Its a car that has enough torque to keep you moving and light enough to play a little meanwhile you can drive it anywhere on as little gas as possible. It accepts a 3.0 L IMZ-FE V6 that can handle a TRD supercharger for some real inspired driving.

The Kms Speak For Them Selves. — This car currently has 364000km on it.Has never had a tune up and starts every time no matter what the weather.Handles well and rode well but getting old and a little rough now.No major repairs after it's 12 year history. Nice style but not too exciting.Gas mileage has always been better than most cars even now.
