#59 of 108 Reliable Workhorse

I have a 92 Camry LE I4 and a 2003 LE V6. Even though the old Camry had only 130 hp it felt adequate at that time. There were no 240 hp Accord or Altima back in 92. But things have changed in last ten years. Now it seems having more power is a badge of honor. So when I decided to buy a new car this year I settled on the V6 Camry. No, it is not the fastest car out there but 210 hp is more than adequate for me since I rarely drive more than 75 mph anyway and don't like drag racing. The overall comfort, refinement and reliability is more important for me.

I never owned Toyotas but I test drove Camry a few times, wonderful car. One time a friend parked his 4-cylinder Camry (maybe a 96 model) at my house during his vacation. I took a test-drive and found it was nearly as smooth and quiet as its V6 when I floored it. Also when Camry's door was slamed close, the sound was just solid and gave me some confidence how well this thing is built. I bought 96 Maxima mainly because it had a little better performance plus a little more bells and whistles.

This past July I purchased a black Camry SE. I was looking for a manual transmission and found one in AL for only $18,900. That included ABS, mats and five spoke Enkie Alum wheels. Since then I put on a K&N air filter and oil filter, and installed a hyper ground system that I made.
I get very good acceleration and the sports suspension makes it a fun driving car. I recommend it to anyone. My kids and the youth at church really think this old man's car is too cool, (really I'm only 43).
I love "my car."

Bought this car new at the end of 1999. Initial trouble with wheel shimmy above 55MPH. Insisted dealer put Michelin X Ones on and had them balanced elsewhere on a road force balancer, now OK. Car gets 28 MPG the commuting to work mostly on I-95. Added TRD air filter, strut brace & rear sway bar.
Does any one know how many LE V6 5 Speed models were manufactured in model year 2000?
Switched to Mobil 1 at 36K miles.

This is our third Camry over the years. Though all have been nice, this one is a joy to drive.
It came with Bridgestone R92's. Changed them out at 18000 to the Bridgestone Turanza LSV. They are working quite nice. We get 55 inches of rain a year here in Houston. The tires are rated AA/A with 400 UTOG.
Using Castrol 5W-10 blend with TRD oil filter.
I am thinking of replacing the springs with TRD lowering springs. Have not made up mind yet. I am no youngster but do enjoy having a car respond well.
If anyone has already do so, would appreciate feedback.

Just bought an 04 V6 SE. Picking it up Thursday after the snow.(MA) Took it on the highway for a test drive. I suppose I shouldn't have held the pedal down 2 inches (brought it to 90 with less noise and much quicker than my mom's 97 A6). It certainly drives smoother than my current and soon to be MIA 93' V6 XLE with 192000 miles. Looking forward to using these forums.

I just bought my first two Camrys.
89 Wagon V6 charcaol gray

I'm sure this forum will be helpful to me considering both my cars have plenty of age and miles on them. Nice to meet all of you!

I'm Gigi and live in Calif (Sacramento). I have a '94 Camry and am having the axles replaced today. They are clicking and the repair place says they really need to be done. However, I've heard some cars can go quite a while with clicking axles, so I found this site to try to find out info. Any ideas?
Also, I see the messages posted asking questions, but I don't see the replies. What am I doing wrong?
I'm so glad to have found you all!
