1987 Toyota Camry LE 4 Cylinder from North America
Good first car - if you can get for under $1000 dollars take it
Distributor cap cracked at 128k, starter strips sometimes can be fixed by rocking the car though, transmission slowly went around 133k - kind of my fault though, I beat on it pretty bad.
Very small, reliable car, but feels like a go-kart at times, pretty ballsy for a v4 anyway - the 17 year old car got chugging to 110 mph before it topped out.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Hey pal... I see you don't have much car experience seeing how you refer to your car as a V4...there is no such thing.

Why don't you just back off. He made a simple mistake. Don't read into everything so much.

V4 engines do exist, but the Camry has never been fitted with one.

Ford of Europe fitted V4 engines to the Corsair and to the Transit van in the 60's.
These engines were a little lumpy on tickover, but had plenty of power and were generally very good engines, I think, based upon my ownership from new of a Ford Corsair 2000E.
The engine is compact, very short, so is suitable for applications where space is limited.
It has more parts than an in-line four-cylinder engine as you obviously need two cylinder heads and two intake and exhaust manifolds.
