1991 Toyota Camry GX 3.0 V6 from Australia and New Zealand
Fantastic car. Want to keep it till it dies
Both front C.V. joints replaced at 296000kms.
Rear right electric window collapsed (don't use that window anyway, so doesn't bother me).
I haven't had the car too long, but am very impressed with it. I bought it as a work hack for $1000; best grand I've ever spent.
The car has been well looked after for its age and mileage, with only 2 previous owners.
Had to replace the C.V. joints, but hey that's wear and tear.
The Camry is really comfy (this is the base model before they brought out the 3.0 GL in 1993).
The auto is still really smooth, and the car loves a good beating NOW and then.
Fuel economy is OK, but this is an old V6, so I didn't expect Corolla economy.
The A/C works great, factory cassette and 6 disc CD stacker still works great, and the speakers are surprising good.
The car has keyless entry (1 remote), but doesn't work, so when the alarm goes off, you have to reset it by unlocking the car and put the key in the ignition, which is a bit of a pain, but oh well.
Next week am getting a full service, and cambelt and associating bits replaced, so will probably cost the value of the car, but honestly, am not really bothered :)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I am the original reviewer, still have the Camry 2 years later. It's now done 343,800km and have had to replace the head gasket, replace the radiator, two wheel bearings, and had the auto serviced.
Apart from that, all I've done is wash it, put fuel in it and a basic service every 8000kms, as it's getting old and using 1L of oil every 10,000km, which isn't too bad.
Overall I'm still happy with my 1k purchase.
