1994 Toyota Camry LE 4-cylinder from North America
A comfortable, reliable car
When the car was about three years old, the steering wheel began to shake at freeway speeds, but stopped after realignment.
Right rear of car creaks over bumps and has done so since purchase. I have replaced sway bushings, struts and shocks, but it continues.
Brakes have intermittently squeaked since purchase. The dealers say that this is caused by dirt in the brake drums or by new, asbestos-free pads.
CV boots currently need replacement and dealer says there is an oil leak near the distributor.
The car has always vibrated a bit more than seems normal when stopped at intersections.
This is the nicest, smoothest, most reliable car I have owned.
Even though it has 93,000 miles, I notice that it still drives much better than other car makes with equal mileage. It's a bit creaky now, but still smooth and comfortable.
Repairs are expensive, but that may just be the nature of dealer maintenance today.
I have much greater peace of mind with this car than I did with my Subaru station wagon and Volkswagen Rabbit.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
