So Good I've Owned Two — These Camrys are great cars! I used to think 'American cars all the way' but these Toyotas have changed my mind as I have owned three Toyotas, including two gen 2 Camrys. The fuel economy is quite good for doing mostly city driving, excellent for freeway driving as well with cruise control. One complaint I have is the lack of uphill power, even keeping it down in second it struggles up large hills. Manual transmission is easy to drive, great for a first time learner. These cars will run forever, my previous camry had 234,000 miles when it got totalled and this one has almost 170,000 miles and it runs like new aside from a little burning oil from the valve seals.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good fuel economy, peppy with a 5-speed, surprising handling for an economy sedan

Cons: Lacks uphill power

Great Family/commuter Car — Overall, this has been an excellent car for our family. She's been wonderfully reliable and has seen us through the raising & learning-to-drive seasons of our children. The visibility is terrific, gas mileage has been good and the versatility of the station wagon has been great. The paint still shines in spite of keeping her parked in the sun. The inside plastic has become brittle & is broken in places, red upholstery has faded where exposed over the years, & the front seats have lost much of their cushion support now. She's also picked up a few rattles & creaks with age, but at 118K miles she still has a lot of life in her.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great reliability & visibility. Sturdy body. Maintained excellent value over the years. Low insurance cost.

Cons: Lacks power when loaded or climbing hills. The A/C was weak when it worked. The original died after a few years & the replacement lasted around a year.

It Is Not For Sale We Need It ! — This car has had only 3 Owners: Toyota has been a reliable car. My thoughts on the performance - acceleration, braking, handling: acceleration: it is fair Power mode gives you a boost. Breaking: Its a heavy car it doesn't stop on a dime. Handling: Steering is tight and responsive Build Quality : Maintained by original owner Appearance: Has some "idiot" dents on the exterior the interior is in great condition. No tears, However missing some covers for the lamps and it came with some odd cover one if its clips are broke. Cost of Ownership To be updated later. Fun Factor depends on ones view of fun lol probably not good for racing but if you like long drives and going places

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Reason to Drive :Economical

Cons: Speedometer marked in increments of 20(s) Hard to gage ones speeds Will add numbers lol

Love It! — I like how these cars last forever and the motor and transmission can last way over 200k miles. I also like how for an 88 it had power windows, locks, seat belts, sunroof and all. Don't like the little motor, poor thing couldnt handle the hills but hey the mpg i was getting who cares

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

Pros: Last's Forever

Cons: Not for you if you hate slow cars

Pros: its big

Cons: carburator-no injection

A Solid Car — this car has taken a true beating. it's been run without cooloant and oil for a short time, it's been jumped, it's been submerged in a pond, and it still runs great. This is one car I wish i didn't get rid of.

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

Pros: build quality, toughness

Cons: i got rid of it
