I own an 89 Camry with only 28,000 miles (hard to believe right?) This is my second car and although it is so old, its wonderful! Haven't had any problems yet, just a bad muffler. This car has been wonderful to me!

I had the misfortune to purchase an 89 Camry Deluxe at an auction about a month and a half ago. I don't know where the previous owner had the damn thing, there's rust damn near everywhere, it leaks a ton of oil, and has electrical problems up the a**. Damnit.

Hi everyone,

I have a 1989 Toyota Camry 2.0, its my first car and generally is very good. Considering its done over 200,000 kms its still going strong, however there are some minor problems. The indicator arm is playing up, if you try to put the right indicator on it won't stay in position and flashes ridiculously fast, it has to be held there every time you want to turn right, quite annoying. Also there is quite a bit of vibration when accelerating from about 20 to 60 (km). If anyone knows what is causing these problems, any help would be much appreciated. Other than these minor problems the car is great, and considering how hard I make it work it's a credit to Toyota's reputation of keep on keeping on.

I have had my 1989 Camry for 4 years now. I will drive this car until it falls apart. I also, have only replaced the muffler and breaks. Just the usual wear and tear. My Camry has about 180k miles. Just three weeks ago I drove this car from Atlantic City, NJ to Central Florida. As, you know, that's a long ride. Well, my Camry had no problem. There were times when I was doing well over 90 miles an hour! We made this trip in 18 hours. She didn't burn oil or overheat or anything. Oddly enough, my fiance was following me the whole time in a 1987 Honda Prelude. I have been impressed with these two makes of vehicle, but after this trip I will never buy anything else.

OK. I own an 89 Toyota Camry VE.

I have had great luck with it, it's a great car, but the starter grinds sometimes and I have to pull the gear shifter back. It's an automatic. I've replaced the starter? Also I have an oil leak, but I can't find it or trace it at all and now it's shifting really hard and spluttering to a dead stop. After a while the check engine light comes on, but then goes off.

I would like to know what to fix and how to fix it.
