1995 Toyota Camry LX Sedan 4 cylinder - 2.4L from North America
Read below, replaced items during preventive maintenance due to normal wear.
I have 5 Toyotas. 2 95 Camrys, 1 with 97k and another with 155k, 2 Corollas, 1 with 195k and another with 155k, and a 97 4Runner with 135k.
I guess you can tell I am a big Toyota fan. All were bought new with the exception of the 2 Camrys. I just bought them this year to resell and make a few dollars.
Well they were both one owner cars with all the maintenance records, and were in such good shape I had to jump on them. Paid 3200 for the one with 90k miles and 2,800 for the other. Both needed motor mounts (up-graded to 97 style front motor mount), this is common, along with rear sway bar bushings. Both needed radiators (these items were all original equipment). Did the usual preventive maintenance like flush all the fluids, timing belts, plugs, wires, filters etc.
That totaled up to about 1k per car. They both ride, drive and handle like new cars. NO RATTLES, idle smooth as silk, 26mpg around town. One will replace one of the Corollas when it hits 200k next year.
These cars will easily go 250-300k WITH proper care and maintenance. Totally bullet proof, again with proper care and maintenance. I wouldn't hesitate to drive either one across country. Why buy a new one when these are just getting broken in, plus NO CAR PAYMENT, and LOW property taxes!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
