1990 Toyota Camry 2.0L four cylinder from North America

Summary:

Great, Well Built, Solid Car

Faults:

Overall paint job is starting to fade, the clear coat is starting to burn.

The front diver passenger seat is beginning to tear.

Changed the Clutch at 210,000.

Original Engine and Tranny.

General Comments:

Over all a great car! The engine is a little underpowerd, but I don't expect much for a four cylinder. Handles on the road great, I used to drive it from Cal. Central Valley to the San Francisco bay area ever weekend.

I now drive a 2001 Saturn and I don't get that feeling of security I used too with my Camary. The Toyota feel solid and well built.

1990 Toyota Camry LE 2.0L 16v 3- SFE from North America

Summary:

"No wonder it is the best selling car in North America"

Faults:

Well not much, I had to replace the sending unit, wheel bearing, cap and wires and a blower motor for the heater. There has not been a whole lot done to the car for repairs, its pretty solid. I do have all service records dated back to 1990.

General Comments:

It is my first car, and "no I did not get it from my parents", I actually bought it from my neighbour, and for a first car, it was the best move I ever made.

The car is actually quite fast for its age, acceleration is well above average, handling very responsive and with disc and drum brakes braking is actually impressive. The automatic trans with ect select button or "power button" as I call it shifts through the gears pretty whell. Even at 115hp it still can exceed limits of 175 kms.

I have a 1990 DX with the 16v 6 cyl engine also. It is still fairly quick, despite tranny problems. I've had to replace the EGR valve, which is standard on most Camrys from my experience.

This is my Camry "No wonder its the best selling car in North America" I have been having some problems lately, and was wondering if anyone out their would have a solution. My Camry has been idling rough lately for the past week. It only seems to happen when I come to a complete stop in drive (gear). I know that the car is old, and my catalytic converter is shot. I know this because when I went to get a donut gasket replaced, the mechanic put a crow bar up inside the converter and chunks of molded metal came out. "like coal" it still seems to have all the power, but it's just anonoying to have to put the car in Neutral just to stop it from shaking. Could it be a dirty fuel filter? or a vacuum leak? Any information would be helpful.

1990 Toyota Camry 2.1 from North America

Summary:

I am pleased with the overall performance and appearance of this 15 year old car!

Faults:

The engine was hesitating upon first being driven in the day if the car had not been driven for approximately 8 hours. Ifigured this out by trial and error over a period of a few months. No computer or other parts were found to be bad and computer was taken apart, cleaned and a few slightly loose connections tightened. Car has been running easily since then with no hesitation problems.

General Comments:

It has a smoother ride than the 2005 Honda Civic!

2.1 liter engine is quick on speed pick-up for an older car and is able to climb quickly up a hill to 55-60 mph from a stop.

No major repairs other than hesitation problem.

Body paint and interior upholstery and dash still in excellent original condition. I have many comments on the appearance of the car.

I'll probably drive this 15 year-old car until it quits!

1990 Toyota Camry 2.0 liter from North America

Summary:

It is reliable, quick, and easy to maintain

Faults:

My friend owned the car before me and the transmission was replaced at about 110,000 miles. It was a minor leak that I thought was easier to fix if the whole transmission was replaced. Of course normal wear and tear in the tires and brakes. I never made any major repairs since I bought the car though. It maintains seasonal changes very well and isn't affected by weather. The air conditioner isn't working right now, but I just need freon. The clutch is a little rough, but that is due to the age of the car. The clutch is the original clutch so its been around the block a time or two.

General Comments:

I love this car. It seems like no matter what I do to it it still runs like a champ. I've hit grocery carts and ran over curbs and this mean machine still gets the job done. Not to mention the fact that the car is really quick. With the fact that the car is a manual transmission, I've buried the needle before. Its also fun to burn out because the car is so light. The car may not look to pretty, but it runs good. It's like a tank, I can hit anything with it and it won't hurt this beast.
