1994 Toyota Camry V6 XLE V6 3.0 from North America


The best car I will ever own and I am going to buy another one (same year, make and model)


After putting almost 100,000 miles on this car, the only thing I have changed were brake pads, oil, air filter, and a starter.

General Comments:

This is a VERY RELIABLE CAR for a reasonable price. It will last forever if you treat it good.

Accelerates fast, good gas mileage and the engine is extremely quiet. Very inexpensive to fix.

Toyota broke the mold when they made this car.

I will forever own Toyotas... from this point forward!


Aside from leaving the lights on and having a dead battery since there is not a "dinger" to remind me of the light, absolutely nothing until today.

Today, it's either the alternator or the battery... but either way, not a really expensive fix for the first problem in over 2 years.

General Comments:

Absolutely the most reliable transportation I've ever had.

The only real COST to the vehicle is the price of gas these days. Other than that, it's an oil change every three months... and that's it.

Reliability incarnate. Looks great, too!


Driver's side door lock stopped working this year.

ABS brake actuator stopped working last year, causing the ABS warning light to stay on all the time.

Driver's side window comes off the track slightly when putting the window up. This creates a lot of wind noise at higher speeds.

Tires lost pressure and needed to be resealed many times when the car was in Ontario. It may have been due to the cold winters or the salt used on the roads.

General Comments:

The Camry is a dream to drive, both in performance and comfort. After ten years, the V6 engine is still has a lot of pep.

The car is unbelievably reliable. There has never been a major problem, and even the minor problems are few and far between. I have only paid for regular maintenance and to replace worn out components (brakes, spark plugs, timing belt, etc...)

The transmission is becoming a bit rougher, particularly when going from reverse to drive.

I've had such a positive experience with the Camry and my previous Tercel that I'm having second thoughts about buying anything, but a Toyota for my next car.

Overall a good bargain with minor flaws


Engine mount needed to be replaced at 120000.

Power options seem to have shorts in them. Power window regulator needs to be fixed and is a fairly expensive repair.

Temperature knobs fall off easily.

Numerous oil leaks.

Radiator leaked.

General Comments:

Car is quiet when running.

Is fairly comfortable.

Has a lot of room and storage space.

Never left me stranded except for a dead battery.

No warning lights have ever come on.

A Reliable Car


The air compressor doesn't work right now. It blows cold air, and then the a/c light begins to blink.

Had a pretty bad oil leak.

The passenger side door handle broke.

The sunroof button broke.

The alternator had overheated once.

No other major mechanical problems.

General Comments:

This car is a real reliable car. It gets me from point A to point B. It gets good gas mileage. I have a 4 cylinder, and it's really slow. That's the one thing I don't like about it. When you get going, it starts cruising. It has a good stereo system and sounds very good.

Feels a bit bland, but does remarkably well for 117k


Last year, the first major fault that occurred with the car was a leak in the exhaust system. The whole system had to be replaced at considerable expense.

Unfortunately, while the Toyota dealer was putting the car back together after installing the exhaust (a one piece catalytic converter and manifold, etc.) they did not connect the front axle on correctly and left a tool in the engine compartment. This was quite a hassle.

Also, the engine had some problems with some of the oil seals at around 100k miles.

The bushings on the suspension (typical Camry issue) had to be replaced at around 70k miles.

At 110k, I had all the struts replaced after one started oozing fluid out and burning it on the tire.

General Comments:

This car is quite a trooper considering the amount of stress I put on it going up and down a mountain to school every day. My parents are letting me use it as I am a high school student. They owned it from new, but I acquired it last year.

I got into two wrecks which were not my fault this past year and the car performed considerably better than I thought it might, being ten years old. A few scratches on the bumper for one (rear-ended by 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cierra) and a severely dented door from the other. (1997 Isuzu Trooper side impact).

I am becoming a bit nervous as the miles go up. It seems as though the car feels differently every day. Still, compared to some cars I've driven with half the miles I can say that this is one well built automobile.

The valves generally like to make a lot of noise at startup.

The heat takes quite a while to come on in the winter.

Handling is safe if not exactly meeting the desires of the average teenage driver.

Styling has aged fairly well as have the engine, auto transmission, and interior integrity of the vehicle.

The seats don't quite support me right.

The four is a little slow, but I can still accelerate a bit faster than the 4 in the 1990 Volvo 240DL my friend has.

Solid, well deserved reputation.

I was a bit suspicious of the first comment, so I looked up the facts at a reputable online source. Turns out that the Camry sedan (curb weight) weighs 2932 lbs. while the Volvo tips the scales at 2919--a difference of 13 lbs. for the heavier Camry.

Really these cars are about identical in safety as well according to Folksam in Sweden.

The Camry is a great used car buy--mine has 125,000 miles and I just got it fixed up inside and out at the body shop. Drives like new!
