1999 Toyota Camry CE 2.2 from North America
Most boring car I've owned, but it just won't die
Vibrating front brakes. I've grown to accept this.
Vibrating rear brakes. I've grown to accept this.
This car does nothing wrong, yet does nothing really well. It's pretty comfortable, interior features OK, handles OK, sort of quiet, power is adequate and performance is plain, but I can't hate it cause all it has required from me is two oil changes per year and gas. I drive 16000km per year and drive it though a car wash on special occasions. It has always started every morning, even at -40C.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Haha; I think a lot of people just hope for such a car. However, I understand you. This is all Toyotas are about. They do the job, and that's it. If you wanna enjoy driving, go for something else. If it needs to be just a tool for taking you around with the least headache, go for it.

Camry's are built to be reliable daily drivers, not sports cars. Their engines are designed for fuel economy and their transmissions for highway and backroad cruising. They're are excellent vehicles in that they last forever, but yes, they are a bit bland.

The Camry was designed and marketed for elderly people. It is not supposed to be sporty or drive sporty. For that they do their job, as elderly people seldom put any real demands on a car. My elderly (85) aunt has one and loves it. It has been trouble-free, but considering that she has put a whopping 22,000 miles on it in 4 years I'd expect that. For cars that are actually driven, a domestic is a far more reliable vehicle.
