1993 Toyota Camry LE 2.2 from North America
Piece of crap car
I have owned this car since new.
I have taken very good care of it; oil changes every 2,500 miles.
It has been a troublesome car; lots of things have gone wrong with it.
At 38,000, both CV axles needed to be replaced.
At 40,000 miles, the battery went out.
40,456 miles, the stater went bad.
42,134, radiator was leaking antifreeze and had to be replaced.
44,786, the transmission stopped working; rebuilt at a cost of over $1,800.
47,094, front rotors needed replacing.
At 50,665m, the car died on the L.I.E. Timing belt broke, the car had to be towed, replaced timing belt, water pump, and tensioner, $735.00.
Now when it's cold, there are noises coming from the back of the car. Also there is a major oil leak, which I was told is a head gasket.
This car now has only 57,000 miles, and I have decided that it's time to get a new car. I think I will buy a Nissan Altima 2-door and hope that this car will be more reliable than the Toyota,
Not oh, what a feeling with this car. My Toyota was built in the USA; maybe that's why it's falling apart. My next car will be built in Japan.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
