1990 Toyota Camry DX 2.0 4 cylinder 3S-FE from North America
$350 can in fact buy a decent car
Replaced plugs, wires, cap and rotor shortly after purchase.
Engine has a collapsed lifter. I live with it.
Valve cover, oil pan and distributor leak oil. I live with it.
Steering rack leaks lots of power steering fluid. I do without power steering.
A/C compressor seized due to running with no freon. I live with it.
Ignition switch issue fixed with a $5 relay from Radioshack.
There are a few things that have gone wrong with the car, BUT it still runs, drives and stops just fine. You can't expect much from a $350 car. It isn't very quick. It does 0-60 in about 12 seconds. However, it passes on the highway fairly well.
The seats are comfortable with good side support. I wish it didn't have electric seat belts, but oh well.
The headlights do not have the best reflectors.
Servicing the engine is a dream.
The car gets 27 MPG average, four more than the new EPA estimates.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
