2000 Toyota Camry 2.2 petrol

Summary:

Bulletproof reliability, has everything one needs

Faults:

- Front wheel bearings.

- Stock exhaust manifold.

- Thermostat housing.

General Comments:

A no thrills car really. Whilst not the flashest cars, the engine and gearbox have been super reliable. I have taken it on trips that consist of 1800km on four occasions without a problem. On one of those occasions, the wheel bearings were worn so it wasn't the most pleasant, but with cruise control it's very easy to get where you need to go.

Biggest downfalls of the car will have to be the brakes aren't as responsive as some modern cars, the interior is not flashy but is comfy, the stock exhaust manifold warped and I had to replace it with an aftermarket pair of extractors which rub against the gearbox, so under load create an annoying noise.

All in all, if you are student or traveller looking for something reliable, I seriously recommend this car.

2000 Toyota Camry GS 2.2L 4 cylinder

Summary:

Staid, large family car. Buy this if you have a family, but are not interested in cars

Faults:

Nothing, just a blown headlight bulb which is wear and tear.

General Comments:

Comfortable and reliable and practical and safe, Camrys are white goods on wheels, I actually bought a fridge and managed to fit it in the station wagon though!

But performance is only adequate. I have now sold this car because the performance was somewhat frustrating and with rising petrol prices, it was not so economical. Bought a 2002 Corolla 1.8, more economical and nimbler.
