Review of used Toyota Camry
The Camry is often the object of cynicism and scorn, rarely being an object of desire. It has become the car we know deep down we should own, but we can never buy.
Toyota has built a great reputation, and is the market leader, thanks to the reliability and durability of cars, but those are not enough to entice buyers into dealerships. For anyone with gasoline running through their veins, it also has a measure of healthy emotions, something Toyota often lacks.
The Camry has reliability and durability in a bucket load, but there’s not much information about it that makes the juice run out. It’s a safe bet, one of the things you might have won, but that’s not the car you want to say when standing around barbie.
The wide-body Camry was a popular car in the 1990s, but few believe the badge for buyers who are looking for a car they can brag about. It was a messy four-door, a friend parked out of sight rather than on the driveway. It seems that Toyota received the message when the 20th century was over and began to care more about styling. There is a perception that they must attract more buyers if they want to conquer the world as they hope to do. Whatever the reason, Cam Cam today is much more attractive, with bold lines and unique proportions.
The 30 Series Camry was launched in 2002 and offers a cleaner look with clear lines and aggressive front end including intense headlights. It’s a bold statement from the company that tends to hide in the dark when it comes to automotive styling.
The power options of the Camry, which is a locally produced 2.4-liter dual camshaft, are packed with a variety of technologies, such as the Toyota LV VVTi’s variable valve timing system that gives it power. smooth drag right in the rotation. When stretched to the limit, it will generate 112 hp at 5600 revs and 218 Nm at 4000 revs. The replacement is a 3.0 liter dual camshaft engine, producing 141 horsepower at 5200 revs and 279 Nm at 4000 revs.
While most Camrys will leave showrooms with four-speed cars in the tunnel, there may also be a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Underneath, the suspension is not new ground, with front and rear struts, but works very well. Local adjustment by Toyota engineers ensures that it handles our roads well; with admirable comfort and peace of mind handling even on rough surfaces.
Likewise, the power steering is good and accurate, and the brakes, the combination of ventilated front discs and solid gears, with ABS monitoring action, are positive and powerful.
There is plenty of room inside the Camry for a family of five, it is well equipped and comfortable.
In the store
Camry is on duty in the harshest arenas, the world doesn’t care about mom and kids’ car and school fleets and supermarkets, so look for collateral damage from bump and everyday life. day. The bumps and scratches on the upper limbs are common, it is part of the Camry’s natural environment. There is nothing worse than fear of the body and it is expensive to fix. They also told a story about how well the car was treated. If it’s scarred on the outside there’s a good chance it’s scarred on the inside.
Check service records and make sure engine oil has been changed regularly. There, there’s nothing nicer for the engine than the new oil, the accumulated mud being the engine’s natural enemy. The four-cylinder Camry engine has a time series so no service was needed until it started fussing, but that happened until it went to the odometer’s upper deck. V6 engines have a required belt change at about 150,000 km.
High build quality, all parts fit together and exist together throughout the life of the car, so you don’t tend to find things that fall off or leave the active Camry. .
In an accident
The capable chassis with precise steering and strong brakes offer a compelling key safety argument for the Camry, and with dual front airbags, plus side airbags that provide a lot of protection when Metal began to crumple.
At the pump
Size hampers the Camry when it comes to pump performance. Four-cylinder cars will carry 10-11 L / 100 km around town and slightly better on the highway, while V6 models will consume an average of more than 1.5 liters.
