2000 Toyota Camry 2.2 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Bulletproof reliability, has everything one needs
- Front wheel bearings.
- Stock exhaust manifold.
- Thermostat housing.
A no thrills car really. Whilst not the flashest cars, the engine and gearbox have been super reliable. I have taken it on trips that consist of 1800km on four occasions without a problem. On one of those occasions, the wheel bearings were worn so it wasn't the most pleasant, but with cruise control it's very easy to get where you need to go.
Biggest downfalls of the car will have to be the brakes aren't as responsive as some modern cars, the interior is not flashy but is comfy, the stock exhaust manifold warped and I had to replace it with an aftermarket pair of extractors which rub against the gearbox, so under load create an annoying noise.
All in all, if you are student or traveller looking for something reliable, I seriously recommend this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
