Love the heated seats and the sunroof!

The car has been pretty reliable but at 119, 000 miles my water pump and some belts had to be replaced. That is to be expected given the cars age and mileage. I love the heated seats and the cars heat and/or air-conditioning come on pretty quickly. Defrost works fast too. I like that. I do not have to wait 10 to 15 minutes for my car to warm up and the windows to defrost before I start driving. It is only a few minutes. It is also a pretty smooth ride. Gas mileage is average, the new Camrys get better gas mileage. We had bought a Toyota Camry for our daughter and I liked it so much I bought one for me when I needed a car. Overall I've been pretty happy with the car.

I bought this car about a year ago with 225, 000 miles on it. I now have 274, 000 miles on it and it is running strong. We have a problem with the hook up from the air cleaner to the carburetor coming off. Finally bought a regular hose clamp to replace the original. Have had no problems since. The car is very dependable even with the high mileage. The condenser fan is in the wrong place. The air conditioner worked well but my wife hit a tire in the middle of the road and the fan snapped off. The seat belt on the passenger side pulls out and does not retract, gets stuck completely pulled out. All in all its a reliable vehicle.

I have had my vehicle since 2006 and it has 235,000 miles on it. It has been a really reliable vehicle and I love that about it. The gas mileage is very good and it is a comfortable ride. There is not very much I dislike about it other than a few issues I have had with battery life and the alternator but a lot of that I think was the fault of the service store. Any car that has that many miles on it is going to have some issues like right now it wobbles a little and the cabin is a little noisy but overall it has been a great car and we got more than our money's worth out of it.
