1990 Toyota Camry CSX 2.0 from Australia and New Zealand
Camry CSX = Trooper..
Alternator has died, as a result the battery died cause I didn't take it to get fixed before the car used up all the battery power.. LOL
Apart from that, the car is a trooper.
Think my exhaust has rusted through. Might have something to do with the river driving (:
I never have had any real problems with the car apart from an aerial breaking due to a friends unwanted drunken handy work.
Air/con switch stopped working properly.
Awesome car - I take it camping, I take it on road trips, I take it everywhere.
I drive it to its potential, not all the time, but in general at least once every time I get into it.
Gets serviced every 5000kms and I put premium petrol in it every 2nd to 3rd fill, and octane boost every so often + fuel injector.
This car is the bomb, its still runs fine, but when the clock is saying almost 440000 kms on the original engine, which hasn't been reconditioned, it shows what a great job Toyota did with this car.
I have driven this car through an approximately 8 inch high river that's approximately 10-15 meters across several times, generally do this when I go camping and it makes it fine.
Have done it several times.
Car still performs nicely, not that this is an impressive figure except when you take into account that the car has done almost 440000! It gets to 100 in about 11 seconds, faster than its stats say when it was produced. I think they gave auto specs and I was running octane boost with premium at the time of testing. I get 9-10sec when going down a hill... (:
Appart from that, it is due for a service - getting replaced exhaust, spark plugs, air filter.
Nothing else I know of yet.
Also has a nice sound once a cd player was installed with some new front speakers, 4 inch tweaters, needed something to equilize the back speakers..
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
