Toyota Camry Saloon (91-96)

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Nobody knows what they are - you get Mercedes quality and ride without all the attitude. Inconspicuous.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Loved it, loved to be driven in it.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes in a heartbeat, if only fuel consumption wasn't an issue, if I did lower miles a year.

What are you likely to buy next?
Maybe another Camry. If not probably a diesel, Volvo S60 D5 or Merc E300TD.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Best car I've ever had, I really miss it. Shame about fuel economy or I'd buy another (I had mine converted to LPG). Handling wasn't brilliant but OK, ride was incredible, like a magic carpet. Engine really smooth but pulls like a rocket if you drop down to second gear.

What's it like to park?
After 4 years I still couldn't judge the front and back corners when parking.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Very little in 4 years of ownership. Had 90k when I bought it and 145k when I sold it. was beginning to leak a little oil by then and air con wasn't working. Otherwise totally solid.

What's most practical about your car?
Comfort, effortless power and torque.
