1993 Toyota Camry XLE Sedan 4 Cylinder from North America
What an over rated piece of junk
The Camry ate 3 sets of tires in the first 20,000 miles.
The sunroof broke 5 times, twice they replaced the entire unit, including the glass. The sunroof would not close at the back and would whistle on the highway.
Two hub caps fell off.
The rear trim on the trunk fell off 3 times.
The master cylinder failed... the dealer told me to keep driving it anyway.
The cruise control shorted out the dash gauges.
The shifter handle broke in half.
The paint started to peel.
Power antenna stopped working.
The original battery lasted 10 months.
Front struts would 'squeak' in cold weather.
Pulse and grind in the front brakes, 5 sets of pads in 28,000.
Tape player died.
The Camry was a Consumer Reports best rated car, in two and a half years I had repair orders piled as high as a dictonary.
I one time found the dealers technician asleep in the car on a side street.
I got hit in a parking lot by a Chrysler LeBaron, it had paint on the bumper the Camry had $3500.00 worth of damage and took 3 weeks to fix due to back ordered parts.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

It's obvious that most of those repairs are not mechanical. The tires are probably from mis alignment from the crash, paint as well, not to mention the grounded wires.

I too have a 93 Camry V6 XLE. Personally I have had endless problems, even after it has been fixed countless times. The biggest problems I have is the radiator which personally I don't think can cool the V6 engine. I am also having problems with the engine. The problems also might come from its two previous owners who I doubt treated the car right. But either way, I fixed ever part and it still seems to go wrong. I would buy another Camry, just not a V6.
