1997 Toyota Camry LE V6 3.0L V6 from North America
I did nothing other than regular maintenance to the Camry until about 167k, when I knew it needed more than normal. I replaced a power steering rack, strut mount supports, a transmission pan gasket, and a battery (battery was my fault, had the radio on, but not the engine when I was cleaning it and ran it out of charge). Other than that, it has been problem free.
This car has been wonderful to me. I have driven with it quite a bit and maintained it when needed, so far it hasn't let me down. I commute 75 miles total every day and need to know that I am getting there safely and without any problems. My Camry gives me peace of mind that it will never strand me. The cupholders and center console are well designed, neat and clean. I have the 3 CD changer that, while convenient, is easy to misload CD's into. Operator error's, mostly. The seats are supportive and comfortable for my commute. Plenty of room for everyone, and the trunk is pretty spacious too. I really cannot fault this car for much, if anything. I would love a newer SE model, and once this hits 200k (prob next year) I will look into a used model.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
