1987 Toyota Camry Basic Sedan 2.0 from North America
A smooth riding powerhouse
The car, which had been stored properly for 10 years, was purchased in an estate sale.
I replaced the tires and all of the fluids. The automatic transmission fluid was replaced by the dynamic method, which I highly recommend.
It passed the safety check and emissions test easily.
However, the transmission exhibited slippage. I had this checked by a qualified transmission expert and it was given a clean bill of health. Due to the low mileage and the fact it had been stored for a lengthy time, it was felt that the car needed to be run in well.
I was happily surprised by the power of the Camry engine. It reminded me of the fun it was to drive a previously owned BMW 2002.
For a car that is 14 years old, I continue to enjoy the mechanic's double take on the year and fine condition of this vehicle.
Though I've only had the car for one month, I can easily foresee years of pleasurable driving ahead.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
