"This car has been solid for over 13 years. With some routine TLC it has taken everything a family of 5 has thrown at it. I will hate to eventually trade this in. But I expect to get 250,000 miles before we reach that point."

best vehicle I've ever owned.

"My car engine has no leaks as I saw in previous page. I, have not had any major problems with this car. Work done on car are mainly basic needs. Very reliable. When asked what year it is, they can't believe its a 1999 because of how clean and how good A/C works."

"This is the best car I have ever owned. I have had it for all 14 years. I have had very little major maintenance to do, most of what was done was due to age of vehicle. The 6 cylinder engine is great. It is a comfortable car for me. The only thing I would like is a telescoping steering wheel, because I am short. And I do not have the proper permanent mounts for my grandaughter's car seat. I owned several Oldsmobile Cutlass' and a Chevy Monte Carlo. I practically had to rebuild those cars during the 10 years I had them. I would not hesitate to buy another Camry. :-)"

"The engine was a constant problem, owned it from the beginning and had nothing but engine issues. Timing belt 4times,water pump, and oil pump to name a few. Finally blew a chunk out of the engine block, with only 81,000 miles on it. The body was perfect, but the thousands invested every year, was a major disappointment, I hated to let it go, because it was so great looking, but the maintenance was killing me and I was not putting another engine in it, even if it was free !!!!"
