1985 Toyota Camry DXReview

Best Car Our Family Has Ever Owned! Period! — My mother purchased the car new in '85 for approx $12K, drove the car for 18 years until her death. Then she willed the car to her youngest grandson, who was 16 at the time and is now 23, and still driving the same car. It took him through 4 years of college in Champaign, ILL, and another 2 years of grad school in Lubbock, TX. 2 timing belts, 3 batteries, 1 clutch, 1 alternator, 4 sets of new tires, 1 motor mount, 3 sets of brakes and 157,000 miles later, the car is still running great and is about to move on to Dallas for post-graduate study!!! I was very fortunate to get the car in the first place, and it has been a real blessing to me. (my friends called it the pimp-mobile in high school, because of its conservative styling and color (brown!!!!). Probably in 2 to 3 years, I'll be ready to trade it in on another Toyota.

Owner for 22 years, 3 months

Miles Driven per Year:7,200

Great Car. Always Cheap On Gas. And It Is Fun To Drive For Weeks And Watch Everyone Get Gas But You. — Forty more words of the same on this 1985 Toyota Camry LE for sure. The only thing I can think of that needs to be done, and maybe this Idea will dawn on Toyota some day too. Is that Toyota should honor the early year Toyota's by making a 1 Year Limited Edition Run on this 1985. Because everyone world wide remembers how these early year Toyota's just ran and ran and ran. That is what made the name of Toyota Motors Famous. Maybe some year in the future, Toyota will Realize this Fact too. Just like the 1965 Ford Mustang Classic. The 1985 Toyota Camry's where the Same Type of a Classic Trend Setter for those years too! - TOYOTA !

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This 1985 Toyota Camry LE is great on gas. Also, like all other Toyota's, it just runs and runs and runs with almost never any breakdowns. You will put a battery or tires or windshield wipers as needed, but you don't have all of the expensive breakdown repair jobs associated with most older cars.

Cons: If I wrote anything negative about this car, I would be lying. Also, if I could say something negative I would. I have owned cars before that would always be leaving you hanging somewhere with some type of a ridiculous breakdown.

  • Would Buy
Cargo Capacity Ranked 1985 Toyota Cressida STD worse.
"The 1985 Toyota Camry came with folding backseats for the most space possible while the 1985 Toyota Cressidas backseats did not fold down."
Family Car Ranked 1985 Toyota Cressida STD worse.
"The 1985 Toyota Camry was a family car because it was a 4 Cylinder engine, 4 Door with folding backseats, FWD handling and suspension, made it the perfect car for family man. While the 1985 Toyota Cressida was a luxury model for the business man. With a beautiful maroon red interior, power windows, cruise control and other features the Toyota Camry LE did not have, it was perfect for the hard working business men."

Good, Not Great, Car By timothytre

After 6,000 miles of ownership, I have to say that a Camry is simply a Camry. Known for its reliability and fuel economy and not too much more. While the car has more style and better lines than its p... Read More
