"Had 11000 on the ODO when I got it in 1999. Has 187000 now. One repair at 183000 was the only repair. Had I followed scheduled maintenance[replace fuel filter and O2 sensor] there would have been no failures at all!"

Cant Imagine ever buying anything else!

"This my first car, so I don't have anything else to compare it to. However, I know that I have put 65,000 miles on this car and I have barely put any money into it. Other than routine maintenance, the only thing it ever needed was to replace the catalytic converters. This car has been extremely reliable and runs smooth. Gas Mileage is great!! Never had any problems with this car. Based on the experience that my friends and family have had with other makes and models of cars, I would never buy anything but another Toyota Camry."

good car,water pump the only replacement part .

"I bought this car used in 2002. Some small interior problems to begin, wind visor peg broke, two cup holders missing, very minor things. Car has been through a couple accidents, one where I was hit full speed in the side,- thankfully - Glory to God we were all safe! We've been ramed in the back- very hard but car still looked good. Probably in 2005 my fan belt broke in engine causing it to overhead and lock up. Sooo I purchased a used engine so I am not sure on how many miles my car has. Figured it would be cheaper to buy a 2 or 3 thousand dollar engine rather than a new car. Other than that I haven't had too many repairs, aside from problems from potholes. Car has been excellent in that wise. Now the problems- -back seat belt needed replaced - locked up - back window needed fixed -problems going up and down -front door window off alignment- probably thanks to my foolish days- but never has been fixed right -Back door window does not roll up all the way- its stuck -front seat belt wont click in- its broken, so I can't fasten my seat belt -DOOR HANDLES BREAK TO EASY!!! ( the one in my front replaced once already and broken again"
