Get in a drive it, and it oozes quality, Solid feel to it even after 20 years, amazing.
It's very good in the snow (good tires help).
Most practical car I have ever owned; wagon model is a big plus. I throw a few snowboards in, my fishing rod and gear, groceries, luggage, camping gear with ease.
Roominess is ample for 4 adults up to 6'00. 5 would be a bit cramped for long hauls. I'm 6'00 215 lbs myself, and the car fits me perfect, enough head clearance and leg room, and I like the seats better than the 3rd generation Camrys.
Only thing I don't like about it is its rough idle, and at highway cruising speed (60-65 mph), and when you tap the accelerator, it has a vague feeling.
This is my 3rd Camry, still have my '92 Camry sedan with 216,000 miles on it, and it purrs like a kitten. I expect both cars to go well over 300,000 miles.
These engines are bullet proof. Just do the obvious maintenance, and it will last a long, long time with minimal repair. I can't say that about a lot of other cars.
Performance wise, it doesn't do a single thing great, but does everything well. There are a lot of intangibles involved also that won't show up in spec sheets, like peace of mind and the grin I get while driving it.
I was lucky to buy my 1990 Camry wagon used in very very good condition, and for only $1,500 it was the best buy of the year, and I can honestly say I love it more than my '92.
I highly recommend this car to anyone that doesn't mind its bland looks and more for its legendary reliability, practicality and quality for a cheap price.
