1993 Toyota Camry LX Wagon V6 from North America


Engine shudders/misses in cold weather (below 30F) and continues for an hour or until very hot. Dealer can't fix because when the car is brought inside the trouble disappears until it's outside and the trouble reappears. Happened last winter and this winter and it can't be fixed. Why? Don't know. Can anyone help me?


Thank you

1993 Toyota Camry LE 2.2 from North America


Bought the car used. Biggest problem was the axle. Reasonable to change for a big car other than that the second biggest problem most will run into is the flex pipe for the exhuast. It breaks loose after a while letting noise come out. One mistake Toyota did do was the logo in the tail light, it sometimes breaks letting vapor enter leaving it with a misty ugly look.. Repairing it is not cost effective.

Although a few things might not be right it puts any Ford or Pontiac to shame. The next one I get will be a new 2000 model - gotta love it. What do you expect, it's almost a Lexus.

Why do you give this car a 9/10 performance rating? Have you not driven any other cars? This is one of the weakest cars I have ever driven.

Front left channel of the stereo died. Er, that's it!

General Comments:

What's good? - Silky smooth V6. Quick. Surprisingly good roadholding for such a smooth ride. Leather, air, cruise, etc as standard. Everything works effortlessly.

What's not so good? - Thirsty. 26 mpg at steady 70mph. 20 mpg around town. Less with the air-con on. Best you'll ever get is around 30 mpg driving like you've an egg under your foot. Doors and boot feel and sound a bit tinny when closed. Dashboard and trim a bit too Japaplastic for this class of car.

Overall? - Painless. Despite the anonymous styling, several "Ooooh. That's one down from a Lexus, isn't it?" and other similarly knowing comments were forthcoming from people who I wouldn't have previously expected to even know what a Camry was. No surprise that they're very popular in the USA.
