Monster Car. — This car is like a charm. I have it since 1990 and it's awesome! It got 300,000km+ (186,411+ miles) and it's still runs without a problem. It's 16 valve, 2.0 GLi, 4 cylinders. It doesn't make noise, very easy to drive (automatic transmission, 4 speed) and it's fun to drive, and furthermore very economic! Amazing acceleration, 0-100km/h = 4.5 seconds. Therefore comparing other Camry '87, this got turbo, EFI injection, Cruise Control, Overdrive. The cons is safety, well; this is old car and it doesn't have ABS, Airbag etc.. But in overall terms, it is awesome cars comparing with others.

My Baby's Almost As Old As I Am — It's got a few little dings from the previous owner that we can take out easily. It's in great condition for a car that age. She's got a lot of pep for a 2 litre. She's great car and she was a good price.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: She's zippy.

Cons: I think there's water getting in my gas tank

Good For Beating — It was a good car. I had it for a field beater in the country. It was fun to jump, skid, and haul ass down dirt roads in! I miss it, it was very fun to drive, and held up most of the abuse we did to it.

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

Pros: Beater car

Cons: May blow up, but it didn't

Camry — The car handles very nicely on the road, has excellent steering, the brakes are good, it doesn't need much maintenance and it has decent gas mileage. I think it's a stylish car on the outside, it has simple instrument panels that are easily read, it has very comfortable seats and a large trunk for it's size. All in all, it's a good, robust car that is comfortable to drive, well suited for the norwegian winter and it'll probably keep on going until doomsday.

Pros: Low fuel consumption, comfortable, nice design, low maintenance.

Cons: No 4WD.

Absolutely Great Car. Will Possibly Run Forever. — My wife bought her "Camy" brand new in April 1987 after comparing it with most other cars in the $19,000 - $20,000 range. At this time, it has 85,500 miles on it and although it runs great, it is showing its age. The only major mechanical problem was the distributor went away. The vehicle gets oil and filter changes every 3 months, new plugs, rotor, cap and wires annually as well as alignments and air/fuel filter changes twice a year. She has already said that when she decides to purchase a new car, she will just retire "Camy" in the garage and purchase a new Camry which means my truck will be outside.

Owner for 20 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:4,275

Pros: What more can I say - great mileage, good service and reliability

Cons: Can't wear my cowboy hat inside the car.

At Time Of Purchase. It Was Cr Rated Best, And I Was Not Disappointed. — I researched this purchased thoroughly, and relied heavily on Consumer Reports ratings. I have been meticulously careful about service since purchase, using only Toyota dealers. From day one, the car would---rarely and unpredictably---emit a loud, fearsome clanking at startup. Panicked, I would turn the car off, wait several anxious minutes, then try again---whereupon the car started smoothly and ran perfectly. These incidents recurred at increasingly long, but always unpredictable, intervals as the car aged until now, with 172,000 miles, it no longer does this. Toyota service department (Omaha)tried diligently but unsuccessfuly to diagnose/correct; they also had specialists up from Kansas City, all to no avail---never did determine cause. OTHER THAN THAT, I have treated the car well, and it has served ME very well and reliably (exception: what I regard as too-frequent burning out of headlamps). I have used Michelins most of the time, and been reasonably careful about alignment. All in all, I have been quietly but solidly satisfied with this car, and regard it as an excellent and dependable purchase.
