1996 Toyota Camry LE 4 Cilinders


Confortable / Reliable


I want to buy a Camry LE 94, 95 or 96...

I've heard that the car is very reliable due to its heading on mid-long trips and the balance with comfort. But I've heard that they cause problem on oil leakage at this time...

I mean by 1996, the car was new, at 2000, only 5 year operative, personally I would redo the engine seals as a good owner, so I know that I got to look for this topic when I face my candidate, oil seals, and leakage...

I wanted to say that because some people say its wrong, but its normal that seals fail after the 3rd year of ops, and they last 5 or 6... Today in 2007, after 11 years, its fair to let em leak a bit, all you have to do is give it maintenance...

OK, today, june 2007, I want to buy a Camry LE 94,95 or 96.

What should I lock for besides leakage?

In fact this car is so reliable that its been a little difficult for me look and realize what problems the car usually face...

Here in Dominican republic, and some other countries, they put GAS (LPG or GLP) (Propane) instead of normal gasoline to run those cars, and the camry is one of the most wanted here, even when they have been running on propane for several years, the engine seems to be OK anyway, that seems amazing for me... And also they use DUAL hybrid sistem PROPANE-GASOLINE to reduce the fuel consumption, so:

What other problems should I look for on this car? (I've read all reviews, so don't tell me to do it)

Hope to get the best offer and the more convenient one, I'm going to think about your suggestions and itll be important at the time I face those cars in order to buy, I want something in very good conditions, had many headaches with my last car thinking on repairing things... No more!!!

Thanks in advance for attention...

1996 Toyota Camry LE 2.2


The best car in the world


The radiator blew at about 70,000 miles, as well as the water pump, but it wasn't the car's fault since a valve had to be replaced and hadn't been taken care of.

Nothing else has gone wrong with it.

General Comments:

It is a great car, one of the most comfortable cars I have ever got into. The seats are great, very confortable, and provide very good support.

The engine is good and has good delivery, especially for a 4 cylinder car.

It is the best car ever, super comfortable, long lasting, low maintenance, and good fuel economy. It is very roomy, the audio sounds great, has good handling (could be better, but is quite good). It is also quiet, and feels very good (handles well and cruises comfortably) on highways.

The Mk-III Camry's are, for the money, very very good cars indeed.

My 1996 Camry shows 346000KM original engine. Changed two hom. joints and brakes, and reg stuff...

This is my second Camry, I sold the 1989 in 2004 to a friend, with 285000km.

If this is not the best car in the world, what is???

I drive hard and fast, I'm 43, I had my first at 29 years old and drove it like a sports car...
