Toyota Camry Saloon 2.2i 4d (1998/S) - Owner Review

Quiet and just cruises. (No good for fast corners. Passengers in the back get sick if I do!)

Toyota Camry Saloon (96-01)

Value

4 out of 5

I got it brand new in '98 for £17,500. Heavy depreciation.

Costs

4 out of 5

Servicing has been cheap at dealer. I get 24mpg average. Have never got better than 36mpg.

Driving

4 out of 5

Quiet and just cruises. (No good for fast corners. Passengers in the back get sick if I do!)

Performance

4 out of 5

When I want it to move, it can (from 2k revs round to the red line it really goes, when I push down hard).

Reliability

5 out of 5

What can I say... it's a Toyota! (My 7th in 20 years).

Rarer than a Lexus. Better than a posers Beamer. So unique. How many Camry Mk 4s do you see in a month?

Comfort

4 out of 5

All the mod cons, plus lots of little touches; cliamate control, etc.

Security

Alarm, factory immobiliser, etc.

Service

5 out of 5

Local dealer in WF2 is excellent, even though this is a UK-spec Dublin import (So I could get the special V6 factory alloys on a 2.2)

Problems

Bodywork
Good, tough and strong. Being dark coloured though, chips show easily.

Engine
Excellent. No problems at all.

Gearbox
Excellent and slick (I got the manual to be in control).

Other
I really like the car. Pity they have just launched the Mk5.
