Well, the engine was shot when I bought it. Replaced with an import swap out engine.
The transmission started slipping out of gear and revving freely on occasion at about 210,000 miles. Then the transmission completely came apart internally at 215,000 miles. Again, replaced with an import swap out.
Exhaust started leaking noisily at 205,000 miles. Fixed with a weld then the catalytic converter went out at about 208,000 miles. Replaced.
Speedometer gear went bad and started shooting all over the place with a very loud grinding noise at 250,000 miles. Replaced with junkyard instrument panel.
Shocks were bad when I bought it, eventually replaced at around 220,000 miles.
There was a bad bushing in the left control arm with made a nice thumping noise whenever I would accelerate. Couldn't find a replacement within 500 miles of here because (the junkyard told me) all the older Camrys had this problem. New control arm deemed too expensive after all I'd already spent on the car.
Before the speedometer went bad, it was always ten miles per hour too fast. May have had something to do with the replacement transmission, though it was supposed to be a match.
Front brake discs warped and caused major shaking at high speed braking. Resurfaced locally.
Rear hatch release lever never worked.
Rear right window would not roll down (power windows on this model) for the first year I had the car, then started working perfectly. Weird.
Front passenger window would roll down from the driver's side master control switch, but would only roll up from the passenger side switch.
After the first year of my owning it, it developed a starting problem. It simply wouldn't start. Not even turn over. Just a click. Sometimes it would start again after a few minutes, sometimes not. I thought it was the solenoid, so I replaced the starter. Same problem. This would happen in no particular pattern. Drove me crazy, I'm not kidding. Checked all the wires, spliced what I thought could have been a short, no help. I determined it must have been a bad wire somewhere in the ignition system, because it would always start when I would run a direct wire from the battery terminal to the starter as a last resort. It stopped doing it for about four months then I sold the car.
